Fitting into the Princess flybridge range, between the 64 and 72 Motor Yacht, the Princess 68 enjoys the highest level of internal volume ever created by Princess for a given length, delivering four class leading cabins, a vast deck saloon and a flybridge and twin cockpits that will be the envy of many a 75ft vessel.
But aside from the simple virtue of space, the 68 will also come packed with features, many of which are a first for a yacht of this size.
Across the main deck level, a galley aft layout allows dining options inside and out, being perfectly placed to serve the cockpit. The synergy between interior and deck is further enhanced by an electric window that turns the aft galley counter-top into a serving bar for the cockpit. A small step up from the inside dining area, the deck saloon enjoys incredible views from the full height side windows, while ahead the helm position is joined by a raised L-shape seating to port, so friends and family can all be involved when underway.
The 68′s master stateroom features a private stairwell and lobby, the guest cabins being accessed by a separate stairwell forward. This unique design creates a real sense of motor yacht sophistication for the owner as well as total privacy for those onboard.
On deck, the aft cockpit is designed to be the main dining area and comes suitably dressed with mood lighting, beautifully upholstered seating for eight and a large teak table. After dinner you might choose to retreat to the bathing platform where an aft-facing twin seat is set into the transom.
At the bow, a walk-through foredeck comes complete with an elegant seating area, large sunpad and plenty of stowage. The flybridge above boasts vast sections of seating with the ability to seat five people across the helm area, a full wetbar to keep everyone refreshed; and the added ability to convert the forward seating into a large sunpad.
Out at sea, the Princess 68 promises to deliver another classically refined driving experience with superb poise all the way up to a top speed in excess of 30 knots, with fast efficient cruising above 20 knots. The hull’s variable underwater geometry is designed to return smooth progress over the waves, the resin-infused composite build method creating a structure that is lightweight but immensely strong, allowing for greater fuel efficiency without sacrificing speed.
