Princess has launched the Y72, the new entry-level model for its Y Class motor yacht line. The Y72 has the same design language as on the Y78 and Y85, and displays extended full length hull windows in a style that will be recreated on the Y95 slated for launch in 2022.
The Y72 was designed with Olesinski, longtime partner of naval architect and Italian designer Pininfarina. The yacht has an overall length of 74ft 9in including a podium (increased by 19 inches) and a beam of nearly 18ft.
Influenced by Y85, Y72 is available in a variety of wood options with extended teak specified as standard. Galley worktables are supplied in quartz and all bathrooms have a countertops made of a shaped solid surface, with a solid surface floor or with optional marble, granite or quartz surfaces.
Antony Sheriff, Executive President and CEO of Princess Yachts“I am extremely proud of the Y72, representing the ‘next generation’ of the luxury yacht Princess. She has it all: performance 34 knots, beautifully decorated and spacious living area, and classy outfits.
“Above all, her exterior design offers outstanding simplicity and sculptural elegance, unique to the market. Instead of creating dozens of robust two-dimensional design elements, we focus on meticulously sculpted and meticulous three-dimensional forms that are amazingly seen in real life. She cannot be mistaken as a Princess but is taken to another level.
The outdoor areas include an optional extended hard top with a canopy or electrically opened glass panel, providing two seating areas and a rear sunshade. A large C-shaped dining area, fitted with handcrafted teak tables, faces a damp bar with electric barbecue, a sink and a fridge with drawers. The rear sunshade can also be replaced with three sunbeds or an optional crane to lift and stow a Williams Sportjet 395 or equivalent tender.
The steam bath has a C-shaped seating area and a sun deck, while the back, a high-low shower pad can accommodate and deploy a Williams SportJet 395 or jet.
The cockpit connects to the main living room via a starboard sliding door, with a hinged window above the rear bar top. The open space gallery features an island bar with optional stools for intimate occasions and is located across from the dining area.
In the foreground is a C-shaped sofa with starboard and a Princess Design Studio coffee table with smoky gray glass top and sculpted hardwood feet, while on the opposite side is a smaller sofa.
The two-wheel drive station with Bőning monitoring and controls for all engine gauges is complemented by a high, forward L-shaped sofa. Entertainment on board is provided by a 55-inch UHD LED TV that can be electronically raised and lowered, along with a DVD and Blu-ray system complemented by a Naim audio system that is also included as standard in the flybridge. and main bedroom.
A private forward staircase on the gate side leads to the state owner’s full cargo ship. Owner’s sophisticated living room fitted with sofa, dressing area and vanity are upholstered and stitched in Livorno Stone leather for a modern finish.
Luxurious surroundings emerge from the owner’s living room with signature architectural-inspired panels, new linen wall panels and a copper mirror to flatter the plan.
In the foreground are three passenger cabins that benefit from full length glazing and access to the stairs by the steering station. An additional private shower cabin with two single beds is arranged in the rear for the crew or casual guests.
The Y72 is powered by twin MAN V12 engines, 1400mhp or 1650mhp, the second engine to power yachts up to 34 knots. Options include gyroscope or fin stabilization.
The X95 will debut the yacht show at the Palm Beach International Boat Show, along with seven other Princess models on display.
