2013 will see another incredible number of new boat launches from Princess, confirming the Plymouth boat builder really is leading the way when it comes to investing and delivering new and exciting models and the new Princess V48 is exactly that. Sleek, dynamic and exceptionally spacious, she is a highly versatile sports yacht delivering excitement and comfort in equal measure. WSB takes a closer look at their new sports cruiser to see what innovation is onboard.
Princess broke new ground when they launched the Princess 50 which has long been the benchmark for her class. Impeccable handling, blistering performance and exceptional space and comfort the model quickly became something of an iconic product for the Plymouth boat builder. So to replace this model is no small feat but the new Princess 52 promises to be a craft that is definitely up to the challenge. WSB takes a closer look at 52 and checks out if the credentials measure up.
The first Princess flybridge boat was built in 1973, the Princess 37, it revolutionised the brand’s core market and the Plymouth builder has remained at the very forefront of the sector ever since, producing many iconic and market leading models along the way. Following this impressive line of craft the new Princess 56 understandably arrives with some very high expectations but, being designed and engineered by one of the largest and most experienced in-house development teams in the industry this new Princess flybridge yacht has a big task ahead of it. Will it meet these high standards, will it will set new ones? We at WSB take a closer look behind the sleek lines of the 56 to find out.
The longest production yacht ever made in Britain, with the largest resin-infused hull ever moulded, the new Princess 40M promises to make quite a splash when she is launched in the Spring. Hull number 1, Imperial Princess, is in the final stages of build in a brand new, purpose-built assembly hangar in Plymouth’s historic South Yard. Combining an impressive gross tonnage, with a sleek and purposeful profile, the 40M will offer six-star accommodation for up to 12 guests, with well-appointed cabins for up to eight crew and the largest internal volume in her class.

Elegant, exhilarating and incredibly spacious, the new V57 is set to be the ultimate sports yacht for versatility, fun and sociable cruising.
