Princess Yachts Debuts Its S72 Sport-Bridge Model

Diane M. Byrne

The Princess Yachts S72 is the first model in a new series from the English builder. The S in the model name stands for “sport bridge,” but this vessel is defined by so much more than its flybridge. The 72-foot yacht features an upper deck that offers space for open-air relaxation, and its overall styling and interior design seem to target a younger, more cosmopolitan clientele than Princess’s typical customers. With a top speed of 37 knots and below-deck accommodations for as many as six passengers and two crew, the S72 is ideal for island-hopping in areas like the Bahamas or the Caribbean. Inside, owners have choices of woods including oak, walnut, and cherry, as well as options for leathers, fabrics, and other materials. Hull number one of the S72 is accented with rich Macassar ebony and polished steel, with silver, black, and white tones for fabrics and leathers. Other chic interior details include furnishings and cabinetry with rounded edges and contrasting stitching, underscoring the yacht’s hip and sporty appeal. (www.princessyachtsamerica.com)
