The World Premier of the Princess 98 Motor Yacht took place at this year’s Southampton International Boat Show and was an immediate hit with potential customers and drove huge interest from the public. The new 98 Motor Yacht provided a showcase for the brand’s interior design expertise and, through its unique ownership, its close relationship with some of the World’s most luxurious fashion houses and fellow LVMH brands.
This sleek and elegant yacht is designed for long range cruising, built using refined and luxury materials. The 98 has a wide range of optional layouts that can fit many of its target market requests.
From the vast flybridge to the walk-through foredeck seating area, her exterior spaces have been designed with entertaining in mind, also a sense of interior space and natural light has been taken into account when designing the 98 which is clear as soon as you step on-board.
With a unique combination of the latest technology, traditional craftsmanship and Princess styling, the new 98 Motor Yacht is a long range cruising yacht with a commanding presence.
Her main deck incorporates a walk-through foredeck and seating area, an alternative entertaining space when moored stern-to. For water sports there is an electro-hydraulic bathing platform for the launch and recovery of a tender or jet-ski, or simply for use as a submerged swimming or diving platform.
The large transom garage can accommodate a jetski which can be lifted using the flybridge crane. The flybridge can be specified with an optional hardtop with integrated sunroof which also allows the crane to be stowed fore/aft, freeing up the aft deck as an additional area for free standing furniture.
Her interior is beautifully appointed and finished to the highest standards. Panoramic windows ensure the saloon and dining area are light and open with views from every position.
Accommodation can be configured for eight or ten guests with up to six crew in separate quarters offering a wide choice of configurations, accommodating a wide range customisation tastes for potential customers. The Princess 98 MY continues the direction in innovation and growth seen in recent years from the Plymouth based builder and firmly places them at the forefront of luxury British boat building.
