Showing off the best of British. Princess Yachts are shaping the sports yacht industry by relentlessly developing and incorporating new design, materials and technology. The in-house team of naval architects, designers, engineers and project managers are there every step of the build, to ensure every square foot is brought to life. All operations run from the shipyard in Plymouth, this allows unique unfettered access from start to finish, with every detail constructed, finished and controlled. The result is sound build quality, practical design and a level of finish that few manage to achieve.
The Princess V60 launched in 2018 as a brand spanking new model, expanding the super popular V-series range. The deep-cut, dynamic V hull specified with the larger MAN V8 1200 diesel engines offering 38-knot performance! Sporty and responsive handling is on offer, which for a 62ft sports cruiser is uncommon and genuinely fun to drive. Encapsulated within are expansive open plan social spaces, free from clutter, which can be air-conditioned/heated or naturally aerated though the large sliding sunroof and electric windows. The cockpit arrangement is again set up for entertaining with a generous seating and large sun pad, with a fully equipped wetbar and barbecue. Up forward, you guessed it, more seating and lounging space with an option to erect a sun awning and a couple of useful lockers for equipment.
Once at anchor the electro-hydraulic hi low bathing platform will launch a 3.3m tender/ski from the garage or can be used as easy entrée for a swim, where you can admire the elegant lines and sleek design from the water. Six guests are luxuriously accommodated across three cabins, including a full-beam en-suite master stateroom that is well lit and has the WOW factor. This example was specified with the crew cabin with en-suite, which is a surprising space that will come in handy.
ULTIMA was delivered to her owner in January 2019 and she is now in the shape of her life and turnkey ready! The MAN engines, ZF gearboxes and Cummins generator have all been correctly run in and serviced. Of course, she has been professionally maintained and used privately by her owners. ULTIMA has the advantage of being EX VAT and one of our team is standing by to explain in more detail. This is a serious opportunity to buy a nearly new, well-specified current model V60 in immaculate condition, without the lead-time. I look forward to taking your call to discuss in more detail.
“Having owned many vessels both power and sail over 45 years, my wife and I think we know what the ideal yacht is for shorthanded cruising requirements and, equally important, what to avoid when specifying a new yacht.
That is why we chose the new model V60 from Princess and we were absolutely right!
Here is what our experience has been with her.
The overall design is extremely well thought out for comfort and practicality and the superb build quality with meticulous attention to detail is outstanding. Her spacious inside and outside social areas, fabulous large cabins and saloon level galley with its almost full width opening directly onto the cockpit make a huge open space perfect for relaxation and entertainment.
As far as cruising performance is concerned, this 60 footers hull design, and with 2400HP available from her twin MAN V8 engines, gives smooth and almost silent long distance cruising at any speed. She is able to take waves on the quarter up to 2 metres effortlessly and almost unnoticed by us at up to 20 knots without us even needing to use the Seakeeper stabiliser. Her SidePower bow and stern thrusters with dock holding function plus a Yacht Controller remote handset and second station helm in the cockpit mean that she is a treat for two person or single-handed pilotage and docking even with 20 knots on the beam.
Stern docking is also simple using the two stern rope-handling winches and the passerelle includes remote handsets for operation from the dockside. Overnighting at anchor or on a mooring buoy is also a delight with easy tender launching and retrieval into the garage.
The tropical rated air-conditioning throughout, powerful extremely well soundproofed Cummins Onan generator, HRO high output water maker and intelligent twin shore power isolation transformers make ULTIMA a superb, go anywhere, high performance, comfortable cruising yacht for short and long stays on board, whether in ports, on moorings or anchored in those secluded remote locations.”
