Princess V50 “impeccable” in first sea trials
Princess has announced feedback from sea trials of the V50, one of the British builder’s two world premieres at Boot Dusseldorf in January 2022.
The all-new Princess V50 replaces the outgoing model of the same name
Princess Yachts has announced the launch of the all-new Princess V50 and V50-Open models. The first V50 recently completed her initial sea trial in the manufacturer’s home of Plymouth, where the builder described its “impeccable performance, with sure-footed handling and a smooth ride”.
Featuring a deep-V hull, the new V50 replaces the popular model of the same name in the company’s V Class, which also includes the V40, V55, V60, V65 and V78. Designed by the Princess Design Studio with naval architects Olesinski and Italian design house Pininfarina, the V50 has been created using all-new hull, deck and canopy moulds to redefine one of the range’s core models.
The V50 is available with twin Volvo Penta IPS600 or IPS650 engines that can deliver speeds of over 30 knots and a longer cruising range than the outgoing model due to increased fuel capacity. New features include an extended canopy to provide more usable outdoor space.
The new V50 Deck Saloon will debut at Boot Düsseldorf (January 22-30, 2022), where it will be among the builder’s two world premieres with the X80.
The British builder will include the two world premieres among its display at the world’s biggest indoor boat show.
