Princess Yachts’ seven-yacht display at this year’s Southampton International Boat Show (September 16-25) will be headlined by the global debut of the F65, the new flagship of the F Class of flybridge models.
The Plymouth builder’s other models on display comprise the F55, F50 and F45, the V55 sports yacht, S66 sportbridge and the Y72 from the larger Y Class flybridge motor yachts.
The Y72 on show will feature a new interior fabric range including materials from more sustainable sources than traditionally used fabrics, a taste of the builder’s upcoming Environmental and Sustainability Programme.
However, the all-new F65 will be the star attraction as it “sets the direction for an all-new design language for the F Class, with an emphasis on sculptural surfaces and lengthened feature lines”, according to Princess.
The F65’s extended knife-edge hull window running from the bow is part of a coherent look across new and upcoming products within the Princess range, while the interior styling offers “a light and airy atmosphere … establishing a contemporary feel”, the builder says.
Will Green, Executive Director, Sales and Marketing for Princess Yachts, said: “The Southampton International Boat Show has always been extremely important to Princess and it marks the start of the new selling season, often setting the direction for the year ahead.
“The new F65 will be a pivotal new boat for Princess and we are delighted to be able to launch her at our home show as a major draw for both UK and international customers.”
