Princess Yachts grows its M Class range with new 35M superyacht order
by Risa Merl
Princess Yachts International is growing its M Class superyacht range with its new 35M. The first hull of the 35-metre superyacht has been ordered and is currently in the development stages, with a launch date scheduled for 2015.
The 35M has been ordered by a current Princess customer who is moving up in size. The raised pilothouse 35M yacht fits in the current M Class lineup between the 32M and its flagship 40M, the World Superyacht Award-winning Imperial Princess. With a gross tonnage of 243GT, the 35M is 25 per cent larger than the 32M and will offer more spacious internal volumes and accommodations.
Naval architects Bernard Olesinski Limited worked in collaboration with Princess Yachts' in-house designers and engineers to develop the interior layout, hull form and exterior styling of the Princess 35M, and the interior has been styled by Princess' in-house design team.
The full-beam owner's stateroom features a private office/library, panoramic windows, two walk-in wardrobes and en suite. Multiple layout options are available. Sliding doors will open off the saloon to hydraulically folding balconies on either side. Overall, the 35M puts a priority on outdoor living with a aft cockpit and transom area 'beach club' that incorporates an integrated aft facing seat on the transom, and the flybridge can be customised with freestanding or built-in sun beds, an optional spa tub, large bar, and multiple seating options.
The 35M will be built to RINA and LY3 classification. She will carry a tender up to 5.65m.
