Princess Y80 to debut in autumn 2023
The Plymouth shipyard is developing the all-new Y80 to complement three other new Y Class models.
The Y80 is expected to top 30 knots
Princess has revealed details of the all-new Y80, which is scheduled to debut at the autumn boat shows in 2023. The model will be the third-largest in the Y Class of large flybridge motor yachts, which also includes the Y72, Y85 and the upcoming Y95.
The continuous hull window line follows other Y Class models
The Y80’s exterior styling follows the new direction of the Y Class design language with a continuous hull window line graphic and elegant hard top. The yacht is fitted with twin 1,900hp MAN V12 engines that are expected to produce a top speed over 30 knots.
Cockpit options include a glass balustrade
Three cockpit designs include a traditional C-shaped sofa with additional storage solution for two Seabobs. Options with a large glass balustrade aft comprise either a central cockpit table with freestanding furniture to seat eight guests or the builder’s new ‘infinity cockpit’ layout, first seen on the new Y85, with electrically sliding seating and table mechanism to transform the area from a relaxed sofa arrangement to an informal dining area.
The flybridge has multiple options for the aft area
The flybridge includes a double sunpad, C-shaped sofa and a flexible table to port, while to starboard is an L-shaped wet bar with optional stools. Aft is a clear area that can stow a 4m tender or wetbike, with the option of a crane under the sunpad, while layout options include free-standing L-shaped seating or a spa bath with sun loungers. Forward is a twin-seat helm station with sofas on both sides.
The foredeck’s forward sofa can transform into a sunpad
The foredeck can seat up to 10 people and has a traditional forward-facing sofa with a small table facing a larger C-shaped sofa and a bigger table that can also be covered and filled in to make a large sunbathing area.
The saloon includes a curved sofa to starboard
The main-deck interior starts with a saloon that includes an L-shaped sofa to port facing a curved sofa to starboard, where a diagonal cabinet leads the eye to an eight-seat dining table to port, opposite the galley.
The dining table is opposite the galley
The raised helm area includes twin pilot seats in front of the day ahead, and a U-shaped sofa and a table to port. Optional partitions to the galley and wheelhouse are available, as is a helm pantograph door to the side deck.
The full-beam master suite is midships
The lower deck is accessed by port stairs forward of the dining table and has four en-suite guest cabins including a full-beam master midships with large double bed, dressing area, starboard sofa and vanity unit to port. Forward are a double to starboard and a twin to port, while the VIP is in the bow. The two-cabin crew quarters is accessed from the swim platform.
