As impressive as superyachts are in the water, they look even larger when hauled out and you can get a close-up look at their entire underbody structure. Visitors to this coming January’s London Boat Show might get a chance to do just that when Princess Yachts unveils its 32M, not only its largest yacht to date but also the largest yacht ever exhibited inside London’s Excel facilities.
At 32 metres in length and over 13 metres in height at her highest point, Princess Yachts’ 32M only narrowly fits through the enormous South Hall doors at the exhibition centre posing a challenging logistical feat. Once inside she promises to be a hugely impressive feature at the show dominating the new boardwalk arena.
The new 32M is a remarkably accomplished long range cruising yacht, with an authoritative style and engineered to the highest seagoing standards. Her huge saloon features vast windows to each side and sliding doors leading out to a drop-down balcony to starboard which gives the entire main deck the benefit of a spectacular open vista. Offered with four or five guest cabins her owner’s suite is located on the main deck benefitting from large windows providing excellent views on two sides and an equally impressive bathroom forward with spacious shower and separate whirlpool bath.
Down below, a full-beam VIP suite is also truly imposing and there is an additional double guest cabin on the port side, with a roomy twin to starboard, reached via an impressive central lobby. Owners who enjoy cruising with larger groups, or those with an eye on the charter market, can opt for the five-cabin layout, with two double guest suites in place of the palatial midships VIP, as is the arrangement on hull number one.
The yacht has earned a staggering £45 million ($72million) investment program from the Company’s South Yard. 2012 will see the arrival of the 40M, a 130 foot tri-deck vessel and new flagship for the company and construction will commence in early 2011.
