Princess Yachts have announced the launch of the all-new Princess Y72, the latest addition to the sophisticated Y Class range.
The Y72 (22.8m) joins the award-winning Motor Yacht range, accompanied by her sister yachts, the latest Y78, the triumphant 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 and takes it to the next generation.
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.
The Y72 is designed for outdoor living, with an optional extended hardtop with electric opening louvered roof section or glass panel, to allow the sunlight in as you embark on your voyage. The flybridge is the perfect place to entertain loved ones. Her layout is comparable to that of larger Y Class yachts, offering two seating areas and aft sunpad. The large U-shaped dining area, appointed with handcrafted teak table, is situated opposite a fully equipped wetbar with electric barbecue, sink and drawer fridge, creating the ideal space to enjoy al-fresco dining. The aft sunpad can also be replaced with three sunbeds or optional crane to lift and stow a Williams Sportjet 395 or equivalent tender.
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 tender becomes an ideal base to enjoy watersports.
The spacious main deck saloon is once again designed for sociable living. The cockpit seamlessly connects to the main saloon via a sliding patio door opening to starboard, with hinge up window above the aft galley bar top, seamlessly integrating the two areas and allowing the outside, in.
The all-new Princess Y72 is fitted withtwin MAN V12 engines – either 1400mhp or 1650mhp variants – the latter powering the Y72 up to 34 knots.
Available with gyro or fin stabilisation, Princess’s pioneering deep-V hull design, developed with world-renowned naval architects Olesinski, is the foundation to this unique performance.
