Princess Yachts Announce Forthcoming 85 Motor Yacht

Princess Yachts International has announced that a new 85ft flybridge yacht is in the early stages of construction at its Newport Street manufacturing facility in Plymouth, England.
The new 85 Motor Yacht will bring the contemporary style and thoroughly resolved accommodation layouts of the Company’s new ‘Motor Yacht’ range to a wider audience to meet growing demand for larger Princess craft.

With the new Motor Yacht range we aim to surpass the expectations of the world’s most sophisticated and discerning owners”.
