The all-new Princess Yachts Y85 flagship
Styling in collaboration with Olesinski and Pininfarina
Following the recent announcement of Princess Yacht’s most technologically advanced and fastest-ever yacht, the revolutionary R35 performance sports yacht, record-breaking financial results and the most aggressive product launch plan in the 53-year history of the company, Princess now reveals the pinnacle of the Motor Yacht class, the all-new Y85. 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. 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 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.
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. 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.
