The Princess 68 is a 69-foot luxury flybridge motor yacht that was launched in 2014 and remains in production to this day. A Bernard Olesinski-designed hull in resin-infused fiberglass is paired with a sleek superstructure for a yacht that is as seaworthy as it is stylish.
The hard-top, teak-lined flybridge features a retractable electric sunroof and an open aspect to the rear with room for a three-seater sunpad, as well a sprawling seating area to starboard with a central, U-shaped leather sofa and an L-shaped snug seat. There is also room up top for a walk-in wet-bar featuring an electric lava-brick grill and icemaker, and two helm seats to port. A large aft-deck with a transom sofa and a swimming platform with hydraulic passarelle will greet you as you make your way downstairs, while at the foredeck there is a large Portuguese Bridge-style sofa paired with a five-pad modular sunbed for marina-facing sunbathing and socializing.
Step indoors through triple-sliding glass doors to rear and you will find an aft-positioned kitchen galley with marble or Avonite worktops and a four-zone ceramic hob, convection oven and fridge freezer, large enough to prepare your Cordon Bleu-inspired gourmet meals. A pair of U-shaped sofas, one built around a glazed teak dining table, provide plenty of room for indoor relaxation, with a further loveseat and helm chairs providing seating space towards the front of the cockpit. The salon is lined in walnut or cherry, while floors can be finished in pearl carpeting, Rovere oak or wengewood for a restrained and sedate look. Use of double-height wrap-around windows as well as sloping windshields to helm gives this almost 17-foot-wide salon a sunny and spacious feel.
Below deck the amidship master stateroom benefits from private stair access to give the impression of a truly secluded hideaway. The room is full-beam and features single-pane picture windows to port and starboard for plenty of natural light and views over the water’s rippling surface. Large enough to accommodate a king-sized island bed, a loveseat and dressing table with vanity mirror, the master stateroom also comes with two closets and a lavish ensuite with walk-in shower, marble tops and Venetian mosaic panelling. Two twin berths, a main head and an ensuite master V-berth to bow provide sleeping space for up to 8 overnight guests, while a separate crew quarters accessible via a transom door is equipped with twin bed.
Top speeds of around 34 knots are delivered courtesy of dual Caterpillar C18A or dual MAN V12 engines with up to 2800MHP available, while the yacht boasts an ocean-going range of around 1,500 nautical miles at reasonable cruising speeds of 10 knots. Variable speed hydraulic bow and stern thrusters provide extra agility while steering into marina settings, while electro-hydraulic trim tabs and a Seakeeper 16 gyro stabilizer keeps your vessel well balanced even when traversing open waters.
