We are delighted to share with you a first look at the new Princess V48. Sleek, dynamic and exceptionally spacious, the V48 is a highly versatile sports yacht delivering excitement and comfort in equal measure.
There will be two versions of this exciting new sports yacht with the deck saloon version launching in the spring and an open cockpit version launching in the summer.
An enclosed main deck saloon provides a wonderful escape from the heat of the day yet for true ‘open boating’ this can be swiftly transformed via a large powered roof and triple sliding doors that connect to the aft cockpit to create one large alfresco area. Below decks the lower saloon provides a more intimate haven in which to relax and is ideally located adjacent to the galley which has been equipped to provide everything needed for an extended stay on board. Two large en-suite cabins provide sumptuous accommodation with a vast and exceptionally light owner’s stateroom amidships and a forward guest cabin with the option of a ‘scissor berth’ system to create a double or twin beds as required.
As with every Princess the new V48 has been designed to perform and is impeccably finished throughout. Utilising twin Volvo IPS drives and joystick control the V48 promises dynamic performance, intuitive closequarter handling and class leading accommodation. The V48 is poised to set new standards for mid-sized sports yachts when she launches in 2013.
