Princess Launch the All-New S78

The Princess S78 will take the mantle as the flagship of the Princess S Class range of exhilarating sportbridge yachts which balance luxury and scintillating performance.

Princess Launch the All-New S78

The fluid exterior graphic of the S78 silhouette is unmistakably S Class, from the trapezoidal stateroom and knife hull windows to the pronounced rear haunches and swept back fly screen, its powerful yet elegant form generates a dynamic, agile stance.

All of the traditional qualities of craftsmanship and refinement are displayed and reinvented in a deliberately more involving, integrated interior concept. Clean flowing precise lines accentuate the spear-less double curvature deckhouse glazing and soft facetted geometry defines the interior joinery to create a truly captivating environment.

The DNA of Princess S Class, like the Prestige Sport Yacht range, is powerful, exhilarating and precise -  yet timelessly elegant and sophisticated; S Class blends iconic design, exceptional engineering and unrivalled craftsmanship to create an unforgettable, emotional experience.

The S78 hull is optimised for greater lift and less drag, leading to lower planing speeds and greater efficiency. Fitted with the MAN 1900mhp engine option she will reach speeds up to a maximum of 39 knots.

Interior Design

The Princess Design Studio is synonymous with the creation of beautifully crafted interiors. Each element of the S78 interior is designed with meticulous attention to detail – both in terms of form and function – and tailored to deliver creative, breath taking solutions for the ultimate experience on the water. Clean lines, quiet tones, natural materials and luxurious but simple finishes are in perfect harmony.

Instantly recognisable as a member of the S Class range, the S78 utilises the same design ethos as her smaller counterparts - the S72, S65 and S60 - through the same use of materials and timbers and by retaining the same overall design integrity.

Stylish, contemporary, timeless, quietly confident, memorable, seamlessly executed and beautifully finished.

Her cavernous main deck saloon with fluid lines and relaxed seating seamlessly connects to the world outside through full length side windows.

Below deck eight guests enjoy four beautifully appointed ensuite cabins all bathed in natural light from elegant hull glazing, with a further twin cabin aft for occasional guests or crew.
