Following the recent announcement of Princess Yacht’s revolutionary R35 performance sports yacht, Princess now reveals the all-new Y85.

Princess Y Class Motor Yachts deliver a new level of luxury, interior ambience and space. The all-new Y85 joins the award winning Y75 as well as the hugely successful Y88 yacht in the Y Class range, delivering stunning performance, technology and quality time at sea.

Hand-built in Plymouth, England, the Y85 offers a unique experience, created for the owner who wants to travel fast, in style and luxury. The Princess Design Studio and

Olesinski worked closely with Pininfarina to combine a unique sculptural elegance and simplicity of form that gives the Y85 breathtaking new looks while remaining unmistakably Princess.

The Y85 design team focused as much on interior layout and use as on exterior elegance and detail. Light, space and guest comfort define the on-board Y85 experience.

The flybridge unashamedly focuses on al-fresco living and relaxing with a large dining area opposite a fully-equipped wet bar, barbecue and fridge, further complemented by a large aft sunpad and forward-facing seating either side of the helm position, where guests can take shade underneath a piece of floating architecture - the practical louvred hardtop (optional).

Up front, the bow area offers a U-shaped seating area – a unique and memorable place to enjoy sundowners . The sunbeds feature adjustable teak headrests, converting into aft-facing sofas around an optional coffee table. An aft-mounted, hydraulic swim platform allows guests to cool off and enjoy watersports.

The single level main deck meanwhile offers expansive entertaining arrangements from a large aft cockpit dining area featuring a hand-crafted teak table, moving inside to sociable U-shaped aft seating, and forward to a circular dining area adjacent to the well-equipped galley. This journey through the main deck can be formalised to the owner’s wishes thanks to a sliding door to the galley and an elegant electronic divider over the bar that transforms the galley from open and sociable to fully enclosed.

Privacy is also maximised by a separate wheelhouse and the ability for the crew to move discretely around the yacht by utilising side deck doors from the helm and galley areas.

Below deck, four ensuite cabins can sleep eight supported by class-leading crew quarters with two further cabins and a crew mess.

The elegant master cabin makes full use of the Princess Y85’s exceptional width amidships, with natural light flooding in from two large windows. A large ensuite bathroom and dressing room equipped with wardrobes and drawers further accentuate the feeling of infinite storage space.

The all-new Princess Y85 boasts outstanding performance with powerful twin MAN V12 engines – either 1800mhp or 1900mhp variants - the latter powering the Y85 up to 33 knots†. Princess’s pioneering deep-V hull design developed with world-renowned naval architects Olesinksi, is the foundation to this unique performance.

The Y85 forms part of the six all-new innovative yachts that will debut in the coming weeks and this product offensive sits alongside a record order book, record financial results, and a growing workforce exceeding 3000 people - all based within a 10-mile radius of Plymouth.

Princess continues to perform as a beacon of success within the British maritime industry and is recognised with a strong presence in over 100 countries worldwide, further solidifying its position as the world’s best-selling brand of luxury motor yachts.
