PRINCESS V55

The striking all-new V55 features a sleek and dynamic exterior profile coupled with an intelligent use of space and all the exceptional performance qualities synonymous with our V Class range. Her main deck has been purposely designed for those who enjoy true open-boating. The expansive cockpit features a large L-shaped seating area with additional seating aft around a substantial folding teak table served by a wetbar opposite with electric barbecue. This area connects to the saloon via a drop down sliding door and opening window aft of the galley, seamlessly integrating the two living areas as required. Her main deck also boasts a large sunpad located aft of the cockpit and a further foredeck seating and sunbathing area. With a top speed of 37 knots, she promises to deliver a powerful V Class sports yacht experience.

This new V Class continues to deliver throughout her lower deck with optimum use of space and multiple accommodation options. Featuring three generous guests cabins, she is class leading for a yacht of her size. Her ensuite master stateroom utilises the full beam of the yacht. Additional guests can enjoy the ensuite forward cabin which benefits from the option of scissor berths in addition to a third bunk cabin. There is also the option of a single aft cabin for crew or occasional guests.
