Introducing the New Princess 68 07/18/2014
INTRODUCING THE PRINCESS 68: Setting a New Class Standard


Scheduled for a European premiere this fall, and North American introduction at the 2015 Miami Yacht and Brokerage Show, the Princess 68 promises to rewrite the rulebook on flybridge luxury, space, and performance. Fitting into the Princess flybridge range between the 64 and 72 Motor Yacht, the 68 enjoys the highest level of internal volume ever created by Princess for a given length, delivering four class leading staterooms, a vast main salon, and entertaining space on the flybridge and main exterior deck to rival vessels in the 75 foot range and beyond. Aside from the simple virtue of space, the 68 will also come packed with features, many of which are a first for a yacht of this size.

Across the main deck level, a galley aft layout allows dining options both inside and out, being perfectly placed to serve the aft deck. The synergy between interior and deck is further enhanced by an electric window that turns the aft galley countertop into a serving bar for the aft deck. A small step up from the inside dining area, the main salon enjoys incredible views from the full height side windows, while ahead the helm position is joined by raised L-shape seating to port, so friends and family can all be involved while underway.

The 68's Master Stateroom features a private stairwell and lobby, with the guest staterooms being accessed by a separate stairwell forward. This unique design, more commonly found in much larger yachts, ensures total privacy for the owner as well as guests.

The aft deck is ideally suited for al fresco dining and comes suitably dressed for the occasion with mood lighting, beautifully upholstered seating for eight, and a large teak table. After dinner you might choose to retreat to the bathing platform where an aft-facing twin seat is set into the transom.

At the bow, a walk-through foredeck comes complete with an elegant seating area, large sunpad, and plenty of stowage. The flybridge above boasts vast sections of seating with the ability to accommodate five people across the helm area, a full wetbar to keep everyone refreshed, and the added ability to convert the forward seating into a large sunpad. An optional factory hardtop with electrically opening center section complements the yacht's stunning profile while providing ample shade.

Out at sea, the Princess 68 promises to deliver another classically refined driving experience with superb poise all the way up to a top speed in excess of 30 knots, with fast efficient cruising above 25 knots. The hull's variable underwater geometry is designed to return smooth progress over the waves, while the resin-infused composite build method creates a structure that is lightweight but immensely strong, allowing for greater fuel efficiency without sacrificing speed.

Princess 68 Key Features:

Private access to the owner's stateroom
The full beam owner's stateroom is accessed from its own private stairwell running off the main salon. The stateroom includes a full en-suite and dressing area with vast hull-side windows for the most dramatic views and a sofa to watch it all from in complete comfort. A stateroom lobby houses a washer/dryer with space for an additional dryer.

Three large guest staterooms
Guests will enjoy three further cabins, two en-suites, plus a generous crew quarters. The stairwell to the guest quarters will lift to give access to a huge storage space.

Incredible social areas
Two separate seating areas are designed into the main salon with two more areas on the vast flybridge, which also comes with the option of a hardtop with integral sunroof. A high specification aft cockpit comes with surround seating, speakers, bar access from the galley and a wonderful transom seat for the most magical evenings at anchor.

Galley aft doubles your social options
The galley aft layout delivers some wonderfully flexible dining options with seating and tables opposite the galley and out in the cockpit. The galley's aft window also opens up at the touch of a button to create a bar area for the cockpit.

Commanding helm position
The 68 will feature a uniquely social and usable helm area, with the driving and navigation positions to starboard, and, at the same height, another L-shape guest area to port. The commanding helm position will also offer a door to the starboard side deck.

Walk-through foredeck
The walk-through foredeck has proved a massively popular feature with owners, offering a private retreat when in harbor or a thrilling vantage point when at sea. The 68 takes this innovative area and turns it into the most detailed foredeck entertaining area yet with seating, sunpads and huge storage lockers for all your day boating needs.

Window area
Following our incredible developments in the use of glass, the 68 will include vast glass sections to the main salon, master cabin, and forward VIP. In the master stateroom the windows will measure over 17 sq ft.

Internal volume
The 68 will offer the highest level of internal volume per square foot of any Princess yet built.

Fitted with twin diesel engines of up to 1400hp, speeds of around 33-34 knots are expected with fast efficient cruising in the mid-twenties.
