Take a Closer Look at the New Princess V39

June 1, 2012 - Viking Sport Cruisers brings you further information on the revolutionary new Princess V39 – an unparalleled blend of quality craftsmanship, luxury, style and performance at an unbelievable value.

On track for a US debut this coming fall, the new Princess V39 marks a stunning return for the company to the sub-40 foot class. This model is particularly exciting for all of us at Viking Sport Cruisers as it combines an exceptional level of standard equipment, a layout spacious enough to rival larger express yachts, and a remarkable price point aimed at bringing cruising customers into our Princess family early in their boating lives.

An expansive teak-laid main deck is replete with abundant seating and a convenient wetbar with refrigerator, sink, and grill shaded by an integral hardtop with electric opening center section. The swim platform is large enough to accommodate a tender and provides the perfect focal point for water side activities.

Featuring a true two stateroom layout, the interior is finished in the finest materials and the same craftsmanship and attention to detail throughout that has come to be expected in the Princess range. A large salon is complemented by a well equipped galley for a highly sociable entertaining space with generous natural light and a luxurious contemporary style.

If you have been considering an express cruiser in the 40 foot range, the new Princess V39 and her extensive list of “Viking Standards” is worth a serious look. Here’s why:

* Standard twin Volvo Diesel D6 330HP engines with joystick controlled Duoprop drives for ease of maneuvering. This system offers superb fuel economy, quicker acceleration, lower planing speeds, and increased top end performance when compared to traditional inboards or pod drive systems in a package that is significantly lighter.

* Standard teak decking throughout the main deck that also features generous molded seating, and a teak dining table with adjacent wetbar housing a sink, grill, icemaker, and top loading refrigerator.

* Standard hardtop featuring the largest sliding sunroof in its class is stylishly integrated with the forward windshield to minimize the need for canvas enclosures.

* Standard layout comprises two private staterooms with solid bulkheads and stateroom doors in lieu of curtains or sliding partitions. The aft stateroom has twin berths that can be moved together to create a large queen size berth. The centrally located head is accessed privately from the forward stateroom, or via the main salon for guest use and incorporates a large stall shower with a bench seat. This layout avoids the “split head” or “wet head” arrangements more commonly found in the 30-40 foot range.

* The industry-leading resin infused construction techniques provide an exceptionally light and rigid hull and superstructure and reduce the need for additional stiffening structures that compromise interior living space. The result is an interior layout that rivals yachts above the 40 foot mark in terms of scale and space, but with the ease of use and lower overall cost of ownership that comes with a 39 foot boat.
The V39 is a born performer and exceptionally capable in tough sea conditions. But don’t take our word for it...the following is an excerpt from the professional captain’s report from a recent V39 delivery run to Oslo, Norway from Plymouth, England, a distance of nearly 800 miles across open ocean:

“For the majority of the trip from Plymouth to Helgoland, approx 600 miles, we had a following wind, sea and swell, wind force between 10 – 20 knots and a wave and swell height of around 3 metres (10 feet). During these conditions the boat was doing 2900rpm, 28/29 knots and consumption of 80/85 litres/hour (21-22 US gals./hour). Only once during this period did the boat bury its bow in a following wave and then the water just flowed rapidly up the foredeck, across the windscreen and over the roof into aft cockpit area draining immediately. There was no effect on the speed as it was like a hot knife through butter. Also during this period the boat never slammed once.”

“Running from Skagen to Oslo, a dist of approx 140 miles in a flat calm sea with a low westerly swell, we ran continually at 3000 rpm, 30/31 knots, 90 litres /hour (24 US gals/hour). Shortly before arriving at Oslo, I opened her up to max revs 3500, 38.4knots, 104 litres/hr (27 US gals./hour). Fuel onboard was 500litres (132 US gals.), water 50%.”

“I was very impressed with handling of craft especially in breezy conditions. The V39 seemed not to be affected by the wind in close waters situations and I found the joystick system very affective on the boat.”

“I found the performance of the boat both at sea and in marinas outstanding and look forward to delivering V39s in the future.”
