As British as the Union Jack, the Princess S60 is the newest addition to the Princess luxury yacht fleet and is now available on the West Coast. What does this trans-Atlantic boat have to offer the Pacific Northwest?
Upon approach, the S60 is undeniably in the mid-sized luxury sport category of yacht and clearly no expense was spared. The sleek hull form with large windows built into the hull and making up the cabin is definitely made to tear up the water and turn heads with a reported maximum speed of a nippy 38 knots.
Like many successful boats of this category, the foredeck is large and open with a generous padded seating and sunbathing area. Also popular on luxury yachts of this size in 2018 is the tender garage built into the transom, perfect for a center console dinghy or jet ski. The S60 also has plenty of covered seating in the cockpit with easy access to the cabin via a pair of glass doors or the flybridge up a flight of steps. The flybridge is well endowed with a dual-seat helm station and seated entertainment space. A metal-framed, canvas bimini should keep the guests and skipper sheltered from excess sun or rain
The interior is also a statement of luxury with massive windows to let in the light, a large galley to port with nearby family-style seating, and a dual-seat helm with more seating forward. There are many options with regards to berthing layouts to accommodate six guests. As far as propulsion is concerned, the S60 sports dual MAN V8 1200-horsepower inboard
diesel engines supply the power.
These Princess Yachts have a following for good reason, and the new S60 looks like she’ll fit right in with her sisterships in the family. If you’re a Princess fan or in the market for a mid-sized luxury sport yacht, the local dealer Silver Seas Yachts should be able to provide more information and pricing options.
