The Princess 64 has been one of the most successful models in our market in recent years. Production will continue for this model for the coming year, with several hulls scheduled for retail delivery. Building on the success of the Princess 64, we are pleased to provide you with information on the new Princess 68, which will fill the current gap in the model range between the 64 and the 72 Motor Yacht. On track for a European premiere showing this fall, followed by a North American debut at the 2015 Miami Yacht & Brokerage Show, the Princess 68 is destined to rewrite the rulebook on flybridge luxury, space and performance.
Wonderfully progressive, incredibly capable, and classically Princess, the 68 has been designed with features that are typically found on much larger yachts:
Private access to the owner's stateroom The full beam owner's stateroom is accessed from its own private stairwell running off the main salon. The stateroom includes a full en-suite and dressing area with vast hull-side windows for the most dramatic views and a sofa to watch it all from in complete comfort. A stateroom lobby houses a washer/dryer with space for an additional dryer.
Three large guest cabins Guests will enjoy three further cabins, two en-suites, plus a generous crew quarters. The stairwell to the guest quarters will lift to give access to a huge storage space.
Incredible social areas Two separate seating areas are designed into the main salon with two more areas on the vast flybridge, which also comes with the option of a hardtop with integral sunroof. A high specification aft cockpit comes with surround seating, speakers, bar access from the galley and a wonderful transom seat for the most magical evenings at anchor.
Galley aft doubles your social options The galley aft layout delivers some wonderfully flexible dining options with seating and tables opposite the galley and out in the cockpit. The galley's aft window also opens up at the touch of a button to create a bar area for the cockpit.
Commanding helm position The 68 will feature a uniquely social and usable helm area, with the driving and navigation positions to starboard, and, at the same height, another L-shape guest area to port. The commanding helm position will also offer a door to the starboard side deck.
Walk-through foredeck The walk-through foredeck has proved a massively popular feature with owners, offering a private retreat when in harbor or a thrilling vantage point when at sea. The 68 takes this innovative area and turns it into the most detailed foredeck entertaining area yet with seating, sunpads and huge storage lockers for all your day boating needs.
Window area Following our incredible developments in the use of glass, the 68 will include vast glass sections to the main salon, master cabin and forward VIP. In the master cabin the windows will measure over 17 sq ft.
Internal volume The 68 will offer the highest level of internal volume per square foot of any Princess yet built.
Performance Fitted with twin diesel engines of up to 1400hp, speeds of around 33-34 knots are expected with fast efficient cruising in the mid-twenties.
