Princess 32M superyacht officially launched at the London Boat Show

Princess 32M superyacht officially launched at the London Boat Show

British builder Princess Yachts is one of the more understated yards when it comes to big launches, and so it was on the opening day of 2011's Tullett Prebon London International Boat Show when the yard officially unveiled the first of its 32M superyachts - and its first yacht over 30m (100ft). A sole violinist offered the fanfare before a select group of press and VIPs before Boat International had the the chance to inspect this 32m (105ft) yacht with David King, MD of Princess.

She is a fine vessel indeed, with excellent use of interior space, large windows flooding the saloon, master and VIP cabins, and cabinetry that has been put together and finished to a definite superyacht standard. Built to MCA LY2 she has still to undergo full trials but initial sea trials suggest the 32M will achieve the top end of its projected speeds - 22 to 24 knots with the smaller engine package (dependent on which additional options have been fitted), and 26 knots with the larger engine package. Understated the yard may be, but it can be justifiably proud of its first superyacht.

Look out for a full review and video walkthrough of the Princess 32M in Boat International soon. In the meantime, watch our interview with David King:
