British builder, Princess Yachts returned to Boot Dusseldorf 2023 exhibiting a seven-yacht line-up with four Princess S72 premieres including the World Premiere of the Princess S72, the Show debut of the X80 and F65 and the European Premiere of the new Y85. Also included in the line-up was the V40, F45, and sporty S62.

After a three-year hiatus due to the pandemic, Princess again welcomed customers and visitors back to the stand to experience this year’s stunning display, including the launch of the S72.

The all-new Princess S72 becomes the latest addition to Princess Yachts’ renowned S Class family.

Designed by the Princess Design Studio in collaboration with naval architects Olesinski and Italian design house Pininfarina, the S72’s sweeping profile features sleek styling lines and beautiful full-length hull windows.

Equipped with twin MAN V12 engines at 1650 or 1800 horsepower and a resin-infused deep-V hull, the S72 delivers dynamic performance and smooth handling at speeds of up to 36 knots.


The very essence of the S Class is powerful, exhilarating and precise – yet timelessly elegant and sophisticated, blending iconic design, exceptional engineering and unrivalled craftsmanship to create an unforgettable, emotional experience.

Each element of the S72 interior is designed with meticulous attention to detail with clean lines, neutral tones, natural materials and luxurious but simple finishes in perfect harmony.

The Princess X80 follows the flagship X95’s open-living approach, defined by large distinctive spaces that flow into one another to offer the most versatile and accommodating experience, while keeping all Princess Yachts’ familiar characteristics of quality in craftsmanship and materials, placing design and style at the forefront.

As seen on the X95, the X80 boldly rewrites the rules of yacht design by incorporating the concept of a ‘super flybridge’ featuring practical outdoor space, and versatile interior space. The X80’s capabilities for adventure provide the opportunity to explore cruising grounds further afield with the option of a long-range 8,800-litre tank.

Offering a true Princess experience, comfortable, quiet cruising is achieved with a sound-insulated engine room and optimised engine mounts to reduce vibration. The X80 offers further exciting performance, fitted with state-of-the-art twin MAN V12 engines.

For the Y85, the Princess Design Studio and Olesinski worked closely with Pininfarina to combine a unique sculptural elegance and simplicity of form that gives the new model breathtaking looks while remaining unmistakably Princess.

The Y85 design team focused as much on interior layout and use as on exterior elegance and detail. The flybridge unashamedly focuses on alfresco living and relaxing.

A large dining area sits opposite a fully-equipped wet bar, barbecue and fridge, further complemented by a large aft sunpad and forward-facing seating either side of the helm position where guests can take shade underneath the dynamic architectural form of the optional louvred hardtop.
