The 2024 version of the Princess F45 has some of the most sophisticated customization hydraulics seen in yachts of its size, as this F-Class model packs in a wealth of features into its 47-foot-long design. For instance, furniture in the teak cockpit, with an aft transom bench and folding table, can be moved with the touch of a button to extend the space for guests. A hydraulic swim step at the stern can also lift tenders out of water and store them on the wide platform.
The interiors include wood finishes throughout that are customizable with a choice from four different oak and walnut gloss or satin finishes. Immediately to port is the galley, featuring a three-burner cooktop, a microwave oven, and a refrigerator, plus ample storage below the L-shaped counter. The Princess also provides a branded set of china, cutlery, wine glasses, and tumblers for storage in the galley, with settings for six people. Forward of the galley, a U-shaped settee to port faces a sofa opposite, surrounding a hi-lo dining table. An entertainment center includes a flatscreen TV, a DVD player, and a sound system with speakers extending to the cockpit.
Stairs from the cockpit lead to the flybridge above, which includes a wet bar and a hide-away electric grill/barbecue. The flybridge features an L-shaped sofa on the portside of the upper helm, with seats that can be electronically converted into a sunpad. Aft of the two helm chairs is a teak dining table and a forward-facing U-shaped settee. Another large sunpad at the foredeck can also be accessed from the side passages on the main deck.
The standard equipment package on the flybridge and main helms includes a suite of Garmin electronics, including a navigation center with a depth-sounder, radar, chart plotter, AIS VHF radio, autopilot, joystick docking controls, and a compass.
Belowdecks accommodations include a full-beam, midship owner’s cabin with a king-size berth, a flatscreen TV, an en suite head with separate shower, and a couch to port. A forward en suite cabin features a double island berth, facing aft from the bow, with elegant wraparound hull windows.
Powered by upgraded Volvo Penta IPS 650 diesels, producing a combined 960hp to reach a top speed of up to 31 knots, the Princess F45 features a Seakeeper 6 Gyro anti-roll system for the smoothest possible ride at any speed. It also features a dynamic positioning system to hold the boat in place via autopilot and GPS without needing to drop anchor.
The newest Princess F45 for 2024 is currently located in Silver Seas’ Sausalito, CA, office, just a quick jaunt down the coast for Northwest buyers. Of special note though: Silver Seas also has a nearly new 2020 version of the Princess F45 currently on offer in its Seattle office. The 2020 vessel is nearly identical but priced a little lower, with Volvo Penta D6 engines (300 hours each) that also produce a combined total of 960hp. Both models are supremely crafted as one of the most fundamental differences at Princess Yachts is the fact that the company designs and builds 80% of its components in-house.
