Princess Yachts, the UK’s largest luxury yacht manufacturer, will showcase two World Premieres at this year’s Cannes Yachting Festival as part of an eight- yacht line up. The first showing of two highly-anticipated S Class models, the all- new Princess S 80 and S65 sports yachts.

The S Class series has broadened Princess’ appeal to a thrill- seeking audience who are searching for speed, fun, and excitement but who refuse to compromise on comfort, space and flexibility. These yachts are about feeling connected to the water, bringing loved ones together and cruising in ultimate luxury and style. They exemplify all the ability, quality and design expected from a Princess and inject a unique level of performance, style and on- water attitude.

Princess S 80

The S80 completes the Princess 80- foot trilogy following the highly successful and award winning X80 and Y80 models. She is also the flagship of the S Class sport yacht range that have become renowned for delivering the perfect blend of sportiness and luxury, epitomizing the brand' s commitment to performance and style. Elegant, yet dynamic exterior lines provide a sleek profile and a powerful stance that belies the volume on board with spacious, open- plan layouts that seamlessly integrate indoor and outdoor l iving areas.

Whilst she shares the same hull and lower accommodation layout as her 80- foot siblings, that is where the similarities end. Her sleek profile and exterior styling are much more akin the beautiful S 72 but it is her main deck that truly makes the S80 a completely different proposition to her stable mates.

As you approach the S80, she is instantly recognisable from her distinctive central cockpit access. This whole area has been designed to maximise outside space and on- water enjoyment, with a garage to the port side capable of holding a 4. 35m tender. The cockpit extends further along the main deck to provide an incredible space for entertaining and relaxing. Twin sunpads ( the largest ever seen on an S Class yacht) border the central access steps, whilst the configurable cockpit seating area with twin coffee tables is the perfect place to enjoy a sundowner. Moving forward, a teak dining table to seat six to eight, ( with optional extendable table) is positioned next to the galley bar creating the perfect area to serve drinks. Sliding doors and a large opening window above the galley bar connect exterior with interior to create a natural f low through the main deck where a further breakfast bar unit provides a more casual dining arrangement.

Light from the panoramic windows flood the saloon. A spacious C- shaped sofa sits opposite the port seating area whilst the helm offers access to all instrumentation and controls. A pantograph door gives the captain direct access from the starboard side deck through to the foredeck for easy mooring and communication. Above, an optional sliding roof spans the width of the main deck, allowing the sea breeze to f low through the saloon. The foredeck terrace, a very popular feature from the Y80, continues to adapt to owners’ lifestyles with two U- shaped seating areas plus a sunpad conversion.

The lower deck features four en-suite cabins complete with chilled water air- conditioning and opening portholes for natural ventilation. The full-beam master stateroom  features  soft  organic  furnishings,  complemented  by  accents  and finishes of natural timber. Soft lighting features accentuate the curved forms of the hand- crafted furniture to create a contemporary but calming environment for owners.

The aft lazarette and two- berth crew cabin with separate bathroom are situated aft of the machinery space, with various layout options including an additional crew mess area or optional third crew bunk or separate laundry centre. A watertight door from the electro- hydraulic bathing platform gives direct access to this area.

The 28. 7 m 2 sport-bridge is yet another impressive outdoor living space with multiple seating areas and wetbar with barbecue and generous refrigeration. A converting dining table and an outdoor TV on r ise and fall mechanism are also available to suit every occasion.

Equipped with MAN V12 1900 or 2000 horsepower engines providing speeds up to 34 knots, plus an optional 7, 000 litre fuel tank to enable an extended cruising range, the S80 is optimised for greater efficiency using conventional straight shaft drives delivering easy close- quarters manoeuvring and sure- footed thoroughbred performance. Both vector f in and gyro stabilisation options are available for greater control in challenging sea conditions.

“ The concept of the Princess S80 focusses on an uncompromising main deck sociable living space close to the water with three distinct spaces, sunbathing, lounging and dining, usable simultaneously without conversions,” says Andy Lawrence, Executive Director of Design & Development at Princess Yachts. “ 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. The Princess S80 is a Princess above all else with a distinct S Class personality defined by its S hull graphic, strong graphical canopy features and powerful bulwark haunches. We have designed the S 80 to sit proudly as the f lagship of the S class range.”

Princess S 65

The Princess S65 also follows the distinct S class personality defined by its S hull graphic, strong graphical canopy features and powerful bulwark haunches. Both new S Class models are designed by the in- house Princess Design Studio in collaboration with naval architects Olesinski and I talian design house, Pininfarina and features a sleek, low- profile exterior that gives it a powerful, sporting stance. So much so that it almost completely hides the large sports- bridge above. Her clever design means there is still enough room to accommodate a large sunroof which, when opened, f ills the saloon and lower helm with l ight and air for those open boating, ‘ wind in the hair’ moments.

The ‘ life outdoors’ theme continues into the generous and f lexible cockpit which inspires relaxation with a large sunpad aft, stretching over the garage that is capable of housing a 3. 3m tender. Forward of this is U- shaped seating and dining area with folding teak table. The cockpit countertop to port connects to the galley that is separated by an upswinging door which, when open, seamlessly connects the inside with the outside. There is an optional top- loading cool box, storage cupboard and to starboard there also is the option for an additional servery unit or an L- shaped aft facing seat.

Elegant teak stairs are positioned to port leading to the spacious sportbridge deck on which owners can experience the S65’ s immaculate handling and comfortable r ide with unbroken views of the horizon. The sportbridge helm station features twin helm seats and dual station instrumentation and controls. To starboard is a large U- shaped seating area with storage below and a teak- double- fold dining table which has the option to be transformed to create an additional large sun bed

Moving inside, the saloon offers a tranquil and versatile environment to kick back and relax, featuring sofa, coffee table, and sideboard unit and a generous amount of storage. Looking forwards, the Dinette features an L- shaped sofa with folding dining table while aft, the well- equipped open plan galley seamlessly connects to the saloon, featuring a full height fridge/ f reezer and twin sinks.

Equipped with twin MAN V 8 1200 or V12 1400 engines, giving a maximum speed of up to 36 knots she also delivers the exhilaration expected from the sporty S Class models.

Both new S Class models make up an 8- yacht Princess l ine up at Jetee 114 Vieux Port during the Cannes Yachting Festival.
