Viking Sport Cruisers’ partner, Princess Yachts International, recently announced their acquisition of a new facility to enable the expansion of the model range to include yachts above 100 feet in length. The facility, which is part of the renowned Devonport Naval Base in Plymouth, England, comprises over 15 acres and is ideally located on the waterfront just a short distance away from Princess Yachts’ Newport Street facility.
With the addition of this new site, which represents an investment of nearly $25 million over the next few years, Princess Yachts now has over 38 acres of manufacturing facilities in Plymouth. The investment in new facilities, along with the commitment to continue to evolve and expand the product range, is a remarkable testament to the strength of Princess Yachts International and their unyielding commitment to building the finest yachts available in their class.
Plans are currently being finalized on the first of a new line of technically advanced, long range cruising yachts to be built at the Devonport site. The first model, at 105 feet, will be the largest yacht produced by Princess to date and is scheduled for completion by the end of 2010. Featuring a stunning profile that incorporates the timeless, yet contemporary lines of the Viking Sport Cruisers family, the 32 Meter (105’) has been designed as an extremely spacious and capable raised pilothouse yacht with accommodation for ten guests and up to six crew members. The yacht’s master stateroom is conveniently located on the main deck, providing for four larger guest staterooms on the lower deck, including two full beam VIP guest suites, a third VIP guest stateroom, and an additional twin berth guest stateroom. Crew quarters remain privatized from the main accommodation to ensure ultimate cruising comfort for all onboard. Power options range up to twin MTU 16V2000 M93 engines at 2,400 horsepower each to provide an unprecedented level of performance and seakeeping ability.
