Princess delivers seventh 30m yacht Bandazul
by Miranda Blazeby
The yacht features a number of custom changes to the original 30 metre design including an extended flybridge hardtop and modified aft cockpit seating arrangement. Bandazul also boasts extended saloon seating while interior styling by Princess’ in-house design team has been revised.
The saloon now features a combination of wenge gloss wood, light stone and soft fabric finishings for a modern look.
Bandazul’s extended saloon leads out to an open sundeck aft while additional outdoor areas include seating at the bow and a cockpit at the stern.
Bandazul is the first Princess 30 metre yacht to feature a four cabin layout instead of the model’s original five cabin design. Bandazul’s owner has also opted for a lower deck VIP suite that takes advantage of the full width of the 6.9 metre beam.
The layout of the master ensuite stateroom has also been customised from the original design. The ensuite features his and hers sinks in white marble and a glass panelled shower.
The yacht has a two metre draft with a displacement of 114 tonnes. Power comes from a pair of MTU 12V 2000 M96L 1,920hp engines for a top speed of 22 knots.
Bandazul’s delivery comes ahead of her showcase at the Cannes Yachting Festival in September.
