Princess Y72 set for Singapore
Boat Lagoon Yachting is awaiting the first Princess Y72 in Southeast Asia.
Princess debuted the Y72 at the 2021 Cannes Yachting Festival
Boat Lagoon Yachting has announced that the first Princess Y72 in Southeast Asia is scheduled to arrive in Singapore in the third quarter of 2022. The smallest model in the British builder’s Y Class of large flybridge motor yachts, the four-cabin Y72 is among the newest Princess models, having had her world premiere at the Cannes Yachting Festival last September.
Featuring an overall length of 74ft 9in and a beam of almost 18ft, the Y72 has been designed with Olesinski, the builder’s long-time partner for naval architecture, and Italian design house Pininfarina. The yacht is fitted with twin MAN V12-1650 diesel engines and has a top speed of 32-34 knots.
The unit for Southeast Asia has been specified for the region and features tropical-strength air-conditioning, a slatted flybridge hardtop, ONAN generator, teak decking and stabilisers. The yacht will have a white hull and an interior finished in silver oak.

Y72 features include a large high-low bathing platform that can carry a 500kg tender, while stairs lead to an aft cockpit with a dining table and a C-shaped sofa featuring a two-tone, stainless steel-trimmed headline.
The interior has an aft galley to port and dining area to starboard that features a fitted L-shaped sofa and a folding table, with loose stools completing the seating. Massive side windows continue forward to the saloon, which has a large C-shaped sofa and a coffee table on the starboard side, aft of the raised twin-seat helm station. On the port side are bar stools by the galley countertop and a long sofa, plus a raised L-shaped sofa forward.
Aft of this is a curved staircase leading to the full-beam owner’s suite midships, which has a forward facing double bed. To starboard is a sofa and storage, while to port is a desk cum vanity table and an aft walk-in dressing room that leads to the bathroom with twin sinks and large rain shower.

The guest cabins, accessed by a forward staircase, comprise an ensuite VIP in the bow, a guest cabin to starboard and a port guest cabin that has en-suite access to a bathroom that also acts as the day head.
The flybridge features a wet bar with grill, sink and drawer fridge aft of the twin helm on port side, while starboard features companion seating, a teak dining table and large C-shaped sofa, and an island sunbed aft. The foredeck has a C-shaped sofa and an island sunpad with an adjustable backrest. The Y72 also benefits from a multi-zone Naim audio system with multi-streaming capability and a dedicated app.
