Princess Yachts have released the first images of the F55 have been released, ahead of its debut at Cannes Yachting Festival. The distinctive design ethos of the Flybridge range flows seamlessly on the exterior of the Princess F55 with contrasting textures and materials incorporated throughout with smart paneling, directionally laid teak veneers, inlaid polished stainless steel and contemporary paint finishes.
The sociable flybridge includes a U-shaped aft seating area with folding teak dining table, a wetbar with optional electric barbecue and twin helm seats are accompanied by L-shaped companion seating that converts to a sunpad.
The main deck features a spacious dining area in the cockpit and an aft galley which perfectly lends itself to dining al-fresco. When the sun has set, move into the saloon with its U-shaped sofa and hand-made coffee table that converts into a dining table (optional), with sofa opposite or catch a movie on the 49” screen that raises up from the sideboard. Twin helm seats have been reimagined with fore and aft adjustment for helmsman. Fantastic open space to relax can be found forward with the seating area and generous sunpad.
Elegant shaped surfaces and precision layered geometry define the interior to form a truly tranquil environment with meticulous attention to detail. The emphasis on comfort and expansive living areas is visible throughout the deck saloon which features the new internal console area incorporating clean, streamline surfaces and finishes.
The collection of contemporary sofas, beautifully crafted furniture and floating side board is highlighted with subtle accent lighting and finishes in soft suede, tinted mirror, hand stitched detailing and Japanese wallpapers to create perfect harmony.
Below, expansive hull windows create a sense of constant forward motion while generously flooding the interior with light.
Lower accommodation consists of a master stateroom with dressing table, breakfast area and ensuite bathroom, a foreward double guest cabin and a starboard twin cabin with the option of a double bed conversion. There is also an optional single aft cabin with ensuite and storage, ideal for crew.
The Princess F55 can be propelled to a top speed approaching 33 knots, and all with nimble composure. Refinement and performance in equal measure.
