Thursday, 09 February 2017
Visit the stunning Princess 40M M/Y ANKA and the new 75 Motor Yacht
Princess at Yachts Miami Beach 2017 will host an expanded new display featuring a fantastic eight-model line-up highlighted by show debuts of the eye-catching Princess 40M, M/Y ANKA, and the award-winning Princess 75 Motor Yacht. The Princess 43, Princess 60, S65, Princess 68, S72, and 88 Motor Yacht make-up the display.
The commanding façade of the tri-deck 40M is quite breathtaking
Combining an impressive gross tonnage of 395gt, with a sleek and purposeful profile, the 40M offers six-star accommodation for up to 12 guests, with well-appointed cabins for up to seven crew and the largest internal volume in her class. Everything about this stunning yacht is measured in superlatives, from its massive 230kg anchors at the bow to the voluminous garage in the stern, which has space not just for a 6.2-metre tender, but for two personal watercraft as well.
The focal point of the yacht will undoubtedly be the magnificent main deck with a beautifully appointed saloon and formal dining area surrounded by vast windows and hydraulically folding balconies on both sides of the saloon which are fitted as standard. Forward of the main deck is the owner's suite, occupying the full beam of the hull as the side decks are raised at this point. The suite is accessed through a versatile ante-room which can be specified as an office, private TV room, a reading room or to suit the owner's personal requirements. Forward, an opulent single or matching pair of bathrooms is accessed off the dressing area which also features two substantial walk-in wardrobes.
he enormous professional galley was designed to the exacting brief of a professional chef and is impressively equipped with two catering-size fridge-freezers, a hot and cold chef's pass and a huge pantry. To ensure everything is served swiftly and easily there is even a dumb-waiter which runs from the main deck to both the upper deck and sun deck above.
The wheelhouse is equally impressive with a vast 'glass bridge' incorporating the control and monitoring system in a stunning console and the captain's cabin is also situated here adjourning the helm. Power comes from a pair of MTU 12V diesels, which will propel her to speeds of up to 22 knots. Two 80kW generators share the machinery space, where the automatic fuel handling system is sensitive not just to the needs of the engine and generators, but to the trim of the hull as well.
The 40M has been designed and built using some of the most advanced technologies and techniques seen in boat building today from state-of-the-art Computer Fluid Dynamics ensuring even the most intricate of detail is considered prior to any tooling being made, to the highly developed resin infusion process to produce the hull and entire superstructure which provides significant benefits to vessel weight and rigidity so improving overall performance and efficiency.
With class leading levels of standard specification throughout, this magnificent tri-deck, semi-custom superyacht, represents a culmination of the skills and passion of one of Europe's most experienced boatyards. It is truly a landmark project – not just for Princess Yachts, but for British yacht-building.
