Princess Yachts is set to add its newest member of the family with the autumn launch of the Princess S65, bringing another exciting new model to a range that just introduced the S72. Sounds like Princess Yachts is looking to make some waves in the high-speed sportbridge yachts. Can’t say that I blame them since that particular line of yachts is becoming more and more popular these days.

The company wants to take advantage of the opportunity the market’s presenting and it’s got a new pride and joy that’s waiting to be bought by deep-pocketed buyers with plenty of loose change hanging around.

The Princess S65 exudes style and luxury that’s become the norm for Princess Yachts. Three on deck living areas ensures ample space for the owner and his guests while the sportbridge, the garage, and a wide beam all provide the kind of distinctive design that has become a hallmark for Princess Yachts. I’ve seen my fair share of yachts under this brand and I can attest that almost all of them are head-turners.

But the S65 offers more than just fancy styling. It also has a well-appointed interior that features luxury amenities of the highest order. From spacious staterooms to cockpit bars, the S65 has no shortage of social areas that can accommodate up to eight guests. The sportbridge yacht also prides itself on its expansive entertaining options, ensuring that guests can enjoy their stay without having to worry about being in the high seas for an extended period of time.

If performance is a concern, you shouldn’t worry about it when it comes to the Princess S65. Engine options haven’t been revealed, but the company did say that the yacht is capable of reaching speeds of up to 38 knots.

Other than what’s been shared, there’s still a lot more about the Princess S65 that Princess Yachts isn’t telling us. Fortunately, we won’t have to wait long to learn more about it since a sneak preview of the yacht is set to take place at the Argentex British Motor Yacht Show from May 15 to May 17, 2015.

Why it matters

There’s an air of excitement surrounding the debut of the Princess S65. I can’t point to what it is exactly, but the sudden rush of new models coming from Princess Yachts has definitely earned it a lot of hype and publicity points. But whether or not the S65 can live up to that hype is another thing entirely.

Based on what the company has said about the sportbridge yacht, it does appear that the S65 isn’t lacking in the grandiose details of what yacht should be like. The four staterooms and three heads compartments - a rear crew cabin is an optional extra - provides enough space to accommodate multiple guests. The yacht also has an aft galley just across from the main dining area and is connected to the cockpit by an electrically-opening aft window and a transom garage that can fit a tender measuring up to 10 feet and 10 inches.

But here’s the best part about the Princess S65. The details Princess Yachts has given us still doesn’t cover the entire scope of features this yacht will offer once it’s fully developed. Expect a few more surprises to come our way in the days leading up to its highly anticipated debut.

I’m personally excited to see what the yacht looks like once it’s ready to show itself to the world at the Argentex British Motor Yacht Show, which takes place from May 15 to 17, 2015.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

Princess Yachts are pleased to announce the latest addition to the S Class range – the all new Princess S65.

This exciting new model joins the S72 in this range of dynamic high-speed sportbridge yachts.

The S65 will benefit from a spacious interior which will feature a galley aft of the saloon, with separate dining area opposite. An electrically opening aft window will convert the galley into a cockpit bar creating a sociable cockpit area. Eight guests can be accommodated across four staterooms, three of which are en suite, and an optional aft crew cabin can also be specified if required.

With a wide beam, three generous on deck living areas, sportbridge and tender garage capable of storing a 3.3m RIB, the S65 combines distinctive styling and high performance with expansive entertaining options and beautifully appointed guest accommodation.

With a top speed of up to 38 knots* and efficient cruising at 30 plus knots, the S65 represents the latest in advanced hull design that incorporates not only outstanding seakeeping but superior efficiency across a very wide range of cruising speeds.

The Princess S65 will be launched in the autumn. If you would like a sneak preview, visit us at the Argentex British Motor Yacht Show, 15th – 17th May 2015!
