A Review Of The Princess Yachts S80

Launching at the Cannes Yachting Festival this September, the new Princess S80 is your exclusive connection to the ocean in a luxurious, comfortable, and exhilarating experience. Designed by the renowned naval architect Olesinski and Italian design team Pininfarina, every space on board delivers a chic, stylish ambience that complements the world around you. The S80 incorporates all of the best innovations and evolutions that Princess Yachts has developed over the last decade, making them one of the most sought after yacht builders on the planet.

After just debuting the Princess S72 at Boot Düsseldorf, the excitement emanating from the British shipyard over the direction of the company is palpable. What better place to announce the new flagship model for the S-class range that at Princess Yachts America's home boat show in West Palm Beach, Florida?

"I like to describe the S80 as a cross-over yacht that melds the popularity of the flybridge design, with the speed and performance of an express cruiser," said Jay Hendrix, Vice President for SI Yachts. "Many flybridge builders today have 'boxy' designs that are functional, but take away from the sexiness that you want in a yacht. The lines on the Princess S80 are provocative, it's a fast, sexy machine, but it still provides the functional areas for you to enjoy."

The new S80 will replace the Princess S78 which has been in production since 2017.

Sportbridge Deck

Everyone loves the view from a flybridge; it's a wonderful place to entertain, enjoy dining outside, sunbathe, and look up at the stars on a clear night.

The Sportbridge is the perfect compromise and no one does it better than Princess Yachts. On the S80, you will enjoy these amenities on board:

No space on your yacht should go without a function that benefits the enjoyment on board. In the past, the bow area on a flybridge-style vessel was reserved for fender storage, windlass, anchor, and other equipment. Thankfully, many yachts of this size are now utilizing the foredeck for a lounge area that is a delightful area to enjoy whether at anchor or slow cruising the ICW. Features on the S80's foredeck include:

  • U-shaped forward facing seating with storage locker and coffee table
