  1. Princess R/Evolutionary R35 Sports Yacht
    Come September 10th according to Princess Yachts, they will launch the R/Evolutionary R35. It will make it to this years Cannes Yachting Festival in September as well for its international debut. As seems to be the mode of operation for Princess Yachts when it comes to their new projects and collaborations, not alot is known about the R35. At the start of this year YF alerted you to a secretive project that they have been working on with BAR Technologies. We can only conclude that the R35 is this same project that appeared with a hull wrapped in dazzle livery for deception.
  2. The vessel will be fitted with the Princess Active Foil System (AFS) which will not lift the boat out of the water as conventional foils tend to do above a certain speed. However, it will make the R35 30 percent more efficient with regards to water resistance. The construction of the boat is in full carbon to save weight and the elimination of a gel coat also saves significant wait to the hull. These weight savings will indeed aid the Volvo Penta 430 horse power engines to propel this vessel to a 50-knot top speed but will more than likely cruise at half that speed for efficiency.
  3. We can now reveal some particulars about the vessel that were not previously available. The LOA is 10.89-meters or 35-feet (hence the R35 designation), 3.27-meters on the beam and drawing minimally 0.76-meters of water. Onboard there is storage for around 600 GAL. At half load the vessel should weigh just under 6 tonnes.
