Princess Yachts launch 40-meter "Imperial Princess"
The flagship of the Princess Yachts fleet, the Princess M-40 has been launched. She already has been christened as "Imperial Princess" bearing striking grey hull, white superstructure and grey hard top and mast. This helps to give the design further balance with the alternating colour scheme.
represents the longest production yacht ever made in Britain, with the largest resin-infused hull ever molded. Combining an impressive gross tonnage, with a sleek and purposeful profile, the 40M will offer six-star accommodation for up to 12 guests, with well-appointed cabins for up to eight crew and the largest internal volume in her class.
The M-40 production series can have different accommodation layouts but for the first hull, Imperial Princess
, the owner has selected the five-cabin option, with two VIP staterooms and two twin-berth en-suites down below. an interior designed by Princess in collaboration with the London studio of Bannenberg & Rowell. The interior is a classic confection of contrasting tones, textures and surfaces, full of visual and tactile treats, set off to perfection by the huge areas of window, which will fill both the main deck and accommodation areas with daylight.
The yacht’s principal decorative scheme features horizontal-grained satin walnut
bulkheads, wenge flooring on the main deck, and walnut
flooring on the sky deck. Signature pieces include the impressive, full-height, etched-metal mural by Christofle
in the dining room, and there is an eye-catching abstract created from hand-painted and lacquered panels on the forward bulkhead of the sky lounge.
Technically Imperial Princess
is powered via a pair of nine-ton MTU 12V diesels, that propel her to speeds of up to 22-knots. Imperial Princess
, was built in a brand new, purpose-built assembly hangar in Plymouth’s historic South Yard.
