British builder introduces its all-new Princess X80 and the all-new V50 at Boot
Britain’s Princess Yachts has confirmed it will make two global launches at the upcoming Boot Dusseldorf 2022, which is set to take place in January following a Covid hiatus. The builder introduces its all-new Princess X80 and the all-new V50 at Boot as global premieres, while the Princess X95 and Y72 will also make their show debuts at Boot, which runs January 22-30. The Princess F55 and V55 make up the six-yacht display. Antony Sheriff, Princess Yachts’ executive chairman, says: “Princess Yachts is thrilled to see the return of the much-anticipated boot Dusseldorf 2022 and eagerly awaits the opportunity to be back with the team at Messe Dusseldorf in person.” Sheriff says that the builder will have its full X Class range on display, which includes both the X95 and its smaller sister ship, the X80. “We look forward to showing the world how we continue to push the boundaries in yacht design,” he adds.

V50 The all-new V50, available as a deck saloon or open model, replaces the original V50. Crafted with a new hull mould that delivers impeccable handling and sea-keeping, this modern sports yacht features new standards of refinement in interior fixtures and fittings as seen on her larger counterpart, the V55. An extended canopy creates the perfect place for guests to enjoy the outdoors under the large shaded cockpit area, whilst attractive shapes and forms flow throughout the main deck saloon.
X80 Featuring an extended flybridge that provides 30 per cent more indoor space than a traditional motor yacht, the X80 is the smaller sister ship to the award-winning X95. Defined by innovative layout options with a host of distinct spaces, the X80 includes an enclosed bridge and Skylounge on the upper deck, and an optional master stateroom forward on the main deck. The design comes courtesy of a partnership with Olesinski and Pininfarina.
