This year we have the pleasure of unveiling the new Princess Y72 at this show, a model that has already made a significant mark in our line-up for Princess Yachts America with ten hulls sold in the North American market even before her premiere showing. We look forward to welcoming visitors aboard.”

Challenged with setting a new standard of layout excellence, which is defined by large, adaptable spaces that can be used and formatted in numerous ways, it offers the owner and guests a uniquely flexible boating lifestyle. Both the flybridge and main deck interior space cover almost the full length of the yacht, creating the Super Flybridge – the X Class’s defining characteristic. This new layout provides 10% more outdoor space and 40% more indoor space than a traditional motor yacht.
