First unit in Princess Yachts' S80 flagship enters outfitting

14 March 2024 • Written by Gabrielle Lazaridis and Dea Jusufi

The first unit in Princess Yachts' S80 series has begun outfitting at the shipyard's site in Newport Street, Devon. The flagship of Princess' S Class range, the S80 was developed in collaboration with naval architects from Olesinski and Italian design house Pininfarina

The S80 offers a versatile layout either as an owner-operated vessel with an open saloon and raised helm or discretely crewed, with the option of an enclosed helm concealing accommodation for up to three crew. 

The S80 had been conceived with sociability and a connection to the outdoors in mind. The main deck sits close to the water with a seamless flow between its sunbathing, lounge and dining spaces.

Andy Lawrence, director of design at Princess Yachts, explained: "The design of the elongated sleek canopy shades the forward two-thirds of this area with an optional awning taking care of the remaining third. The saloon glazing extends far back into the cockpit, cocooning the forward dining area to create shelter from the wind without obstructing your view."

High bulwarks with oval stainless steel rails complete the space, extending beyond the full-length windows lining either side of the cockpit canopy. A large sliding door on the main deck ushers guests into the yacht's interior, which features soft natural materials and four en-suite cabins situated on the lower deck.

Above sits a 28.7-square-metre flybridge with multiple seating areas, a wetbar and a barbecue. The space is also equipped with a convertible dining table and even functions as an outdoor cinema with a rise and fall television.

Other onboard highlights include a generous foredeck, tender garage and an electro-hydraulic bathing platform.

The S80 can be fitted with either MAN V12 1,900 or 2,000 hp engines enabling speeds of up to 34 knots, with an optional 7,000-litre fuel tank for an extended cruising range.

Princess Yachts has 28 units currently under construction, according to BOATPro.

This follows the reveal of the shipyard's latest Y Class model, the 25.5-metre Y80, which offers three cockpit designs for the owner to choose from.
