Princess to unveil X80 and V50 at Boot Düsseldorf
The British builder will include the two world premieres among its display at the world’s biggest indoor boat show.
Princess will host the world premieres of the X80 and V50 at Boot Dusseldorf (January 22-30), where it will also feature the show debuts of the brand’s flagship X95 and the Y72, which had its world premiere at the Cannes Yachting Festival in September. The F55 and V55 round out the British builder’s six-yacht display at the world’s biggest indoor boat show.
Designed with Olesinski and Pininfarina, the X80 is the sister ship to the X95 and features an extended flybridge that provides 30 per cent more indoor space than a traditional motor yacht. The X80 includes an enclosed bridge and skylounge on the upper deck, and an optional master stateroom forward on the main deck.
Antony Sheriff, Executive Chairman of Princess Yachts, said: “Princess Yachts is thrilled to see the return of the much-anticipated Boot Düsseldorf in 2022 and eagerly awaits the opportunity to be back with the team at Messe Düsseldorf in person.
“We will be at Düsseldorf with an innovative range of boats that encapsulate everything we are about – improved efficiency and seakeeping, innovative packaging, and the extraordinary elegance of design for which we are renowned. With our full X Class range on display, as well as the all-new V50 and the Y72, we look forward to showing how we continue to push the boundaries in yacht design.”
The all-new V50, available as a deck saloon or open model, replaces the original V50. Crafted with a new hull mould, the sports yacht features new interior fixtures and fittings as seen on the V55, while an extended canopy increases the shaded area in the aft cockpit.
Princess is on a sustainability journey and remains committed to bringing environmental initiatives to the forefront of the brand’s ethos with the launch of the Princess X95 hybrid system in collaboration with MAN engines, while other initiatives include the trial and testing of all-new eco-friendly fabrics for the full range of models.
The Princess stand will also host art installations from the brand’s partners including Ecoworks Marine, Oceanographic and Salcombe Distilling.
Designed with Olesinski and Pininfarina, the Y72 shows off a distinct new hull glazing, while building on the interior styling of the Y85.
