The new Princess 64 is a craft with a real sense of occasion. Her exceptional performance and sleek, sporty profile hide a supremely spacious four-cabin motor yacht rich with light, elegant detailing and unprecedented scope for entertaining.

The vast flybridge is a wonderfully relaxed setting whether underway or at anchor. A large teak table with generous U shaped seating provides the perfect space for alfresco dining while the well equipped wetbar, barbeque and wide sunbed ensure it is also a highly sociable entertaining space.

Aft of the cockpit the hydraulically controlled bathing platform can be raised or lowered for the effortless launching and recovery of a tender or jet ski.

Inside, the 64 is light and welcoming, aided by the large windows to both sides that fill the saloon with sunlight. The saloon layout incorporates a two-seater settee facing a generous U -shaped sofa, and a separate dining area forward, adjacent to the galley.

Below, four exquisitely appointed cabins accommodate 8 in total comfort whilst an optional en-suite aft cabin is available for crew or a further two occasional guests.
