Princess Yachts has revealed the first details of the latest addition to its range of sportsbridge yachts, the Princess S78. The first yacht in the series is due for a public debut in January 2018 at the Boot Dusseldorf boat show.
 
This in-house design combines the benefits of a flybridge with the sporty profile and large sunroof of a sportscruiser.
 
Key features include a highly flexible cockpit, which features sliding seating, creating several options for entertaining. Two large sunpads aft are ideal for those looking to soak up some rays and the transom conceals a 4.45 metre tender garage.
 
 
Inside, her cavernous main deck saloon uses dynamic lines and convivial seating, to seamlessly connect to the world outside through full length side windows.
 
The accommodation is situated below decks with an amidships owner’s suite that stretches across the entire beam. Two double cabins and a portside twin cabin take the total guest accommodation to eight people, while the aft quarters allows for a crew of two people.
 
Three engine packages are available: one from Caterpillar, and two from MAN. At half load, the Princess S78 should see a top speed between 34 and 36 knots with the Caterpillars. Opting for the MANs should allow 36 to 38 knots and a slightly more powerful MAN package promising 37 to 39 knots.

The entry-level model will feature a single stern drive engine from Volvo Penta with the option to upgrade to twin diesels. For even greater performance, twin V8 petrol’s will be available for those that seek high performance from their boating.
 
Head of Design at Fairline Yachts, Andrew Pope, comments, "Hot on the heels of launching the award-winning Targa 63 GTO last week at Cannes and the all new Targa 43 Open due to debut next spring, we now reveal the latest Alberto Mancini designed Fairline. Inspired by our long heritage in designing and building sub-40ft yachts, we are pleased to make public our first, exciting, compact day boat which will further broaden the appeal of the Fairline brand."
 
"This stylish day boat embraces outdoor living and will feature an expansive foredeck sunbathing area, open plan forward cabin and innovative fold down transom. The wrap around windows offer a light and airy feel and hand-crafted details add luxury."
