The Princess 60 Flybridge cruiser
The Princess 60 has found its place in the market as an elegant, reliable and powerful motor yacht that delivers a great on board experience. The newest 2014 model has made further strides in the provision of comfort and power. The exterior profile of the Princess 60 has been newly designed and features sharper lines and a much lower window line providing better panoramic views from inside the saloon.
Famous for being whisper quiet
The Princess 60 is able to combine speed with responsiveness in a motor yacht that is famous for being whisper quiet even at higher speeds. It is a craft that has been re-engineered with the ever-demanding requirements of owners in mind. Acceleration is described by the makers as exhilarating and this is a powerboat that exudes superb design traits so that any trip can be a pleasure to undertake.
The interior of the boat has been carefully crafted such that the maximum amount of light can penetrate into the seating areas. At the same time a system of blinds allows you to control the sunlight entering the interior spaces so that you can enjoy a perfect balance of nature and engineering. The wide windows can be useful at night time allowing for night views to be visible from the inside, with the blinds providing privacy at will.
Hand stitched leather and stainless steel
As for its trademark quietness, the insulation fitted into the cabin will ensure a very peaceful trip. The interior has been provided with top class fittings including hand stitched leather paneling, and inlaid stainless steel details. A retractable glass frosted screen that can be activated at the touch of a button is amongst the extras in place to provide maximum flexibility to the living space.
The craft has an overall length, including the pulpit, of 61 ft. 1 inch, or 18.61m. Without the pulpit the length comes in at 60ft 3 inches, or 18.36 meters. Hence the name used for the craft is the Princess 60. The yacht’s beam is 15ft 10 inches or 4.83 meters and its draft is 4 ft. 2 inches, approx. 1.27 meters. It boasts a displacement of 25,000 kg or 55,100 pounds, based on fuel and water tanks being fifty per cent full and no additional optional equipment on board.
Volvo engines give 33 knots top speed
The Princess 60 has ample fuel capacity at 615 gallons or 2,800 liters as well providing for clean water capacity in the amount of 175 gallons or 793 liters, both of which provide peace of mind on any extended trip.
Recommended engines are twin Volvo D13-800 (2 x 800mhp) that give a speed of between 31 and 33 knots. An alternative for higher performance is to fit twin Volvo D13-900 (2 x 900mhp)
which will increase the speed range to 33-35 knots.
Princess yachts have been designed with safety in mind. The crafts are certified by the National Marine Manufacturer’s Association and are fully compliant with the safety standards set out by the American Boat and Yacht Council as well as to safety standards of the United States Coast Guard Office of Boating Safety.
Cabins with double and single beds
The Princess 60 features no less than three spacious cabins on the lower deck with the owners state room taking up the full beam. This room has plenty of space to accommodate both the double bed that features a leather headboard as well as a sofa across its width. The room has en suite facilities also. A built in wardrobe is included which is of a good size, but yet it doesn’t impose on the room in any way. Large hull side windows make this a bright and airy room and further adds to the feeling of spaciousness. The other cabins also have en suite facilities and come with a queen-sized bed in the forward cabin and two singles in the mid positioned one. All cabins have built in storage spaces. As an option further en suite accommodation for 2 crew members can also be included.
Dining area on deck and in cabin
On the main deck is a large saloon with forward galley. The main deck also features an elevated dining area. The saloon makes use of a built in C-shaped sofa as well as a smaller two seater. A similar style of seating is evident in the dining area which features booth seating in a wraparound fashion around a good-sized teak dining table. Many of the seats also double as storage areas. The galley features electric cooking appliances and a double sink unit as well as plenty of work space as part of what is a nearly semi circular design.
Outside a hydraulic lifting platform is fitted as standard to assist with launch and recovery, tender storage and also as a bathing platform.
