Princess Yachts announces the launch of the all-new Y72 Flybridge Motor Yacht

Princess Yachts is delighted to announce the launch of the all-new Princess Y72, who becomes the latest addition to the Y Class range, accompanied by her sister yachts, the latest Y78, the Y85, and the highly anticipated flagship of the range, the Y95 due to launch in 2022. 

Designed by the Princess Design Studio in collaboration with naval architects Olesinski and Italian design house, Pininfarina, the Y72 encapsulates the quality and design language as seen on larger yachts in the range. The Y72, taking influence from her larger sister the Y85, is available in a selection of different timber finishes options with extended teak appointed as standard. Galley worktops are supplied in Quartz and all bathrooms feature formed solid surface worktops, with floors in either solid surface or in optional marble, granite or quartz. 

Antony Sheriff, Executive Chairman & CEO, Princess Yachts said; “I am immensely proud of the Y72 which represents the “next generation” of Princess luxury yachts.  She has it all: 34 knot performance, beautifully laid out and spacious living areas, and a luxurious fit out that underlines the extraordinary hand-built quality and impeccable design detail created by our 3,000 craftspeople in Plymouth. Above all, her exterior design brings striking simplicity and sculptural elegance that stands alone in the market.  Rather than crowd her with dozens of aggressive two-dimensional design elements, we have focussed on meticulously surfaced and sculpted three dimensional forms that are astonishing to see in real life.  She is unmistakably a Princess, but taken to another level.”

Andy Lawrence, Design Director, Princess Yachts, said; “In the Y72 our design teams have established a new direction in the evolution of the Y class exterior design language, focussing on the development of refined, sophisticated surfaces in every area to generate a uniquely clean overall aesthetic. The interior form has been evolved gently and confidently from the Y85, building on the results that only Princess are capable of through the in-house capabilities of our joinery and upholstery teams. The result is a richly layered, intricate yet calming interior design. Having consulted with and listened to many of our clients, we have pushed ourselves to get the most out of this platform in terms of actual real world usability. With the Y72, we are challenging the norm in smaller yet still incredibly innovative ways.”

Moving forward of the flybridge, the bow area offers a U-shaped seating area and sunpad, allowing guests’ to experience the surrounding vista. An aft-mounted, raise/lower bathing platform to accommodate and deploy a Williams Sportjet395 or a Seadoo Spark (or equivalent) becomes an ideal base to enjoy watersports.
