INNOVATION REDEFINES YACHT DESIGN WITH PRINCESS’S REVOLUTIONARY R35

Princess R35

July 3rd, 2018

The R35 is the first Princess R Class performance sports yacht. Designed and hand-built in Plymouth, England, it combines revolutionary performance capabilities, stunning design, quality, and race-bred technology to deliver a unique on-water experience at all speeds.

Designed in partnership with world-famous Ben Ainslie Racing Technologies (BAR Technologies) and Pininfarina, the R35 is a powerful expression of intent from a company hitting a rich vein of form: Princess Yachts, renowned for British craftsmanship and engineering pedigree, is experiencing record financial results and order books as the R35 is brought to market. Here are its most technologically advanced and significant sports yacht ever.

• America’s Cup technology drives the R35’s game-changing performance

• Princess Active Foil System (AFS) developed with BAR Technologies optimizes stability and maneuverability in all sea conditions, allowing for a much lower drag hull form to re-define ride comfort and high-speed cornering ability

• Revolutionary new lightweight carbon-fibre monocoque hull structure designed in collaboration with legendary Italian styling house Pininfarina – a name synonymous with many of the world’s most beautiful and valuable cars

• Advanced aerodynamics represented by visually defining side air blades that maximize engine airflow, while managing vortices and turbulence at the stern of the yacht to improve comfort

• Twin all aluminum, direct injection V8 petrol engines with variable valve timing and fully CNC machined intake and exhaust ports provide exceptional levels of torque and responsiveness to safely power the R35 to an exhilarating 50 knots: the fastest-ever Princess

• Bespoke Princess interiors designed for luxury living at sea paired with innovative equipment including glass panel helm, prestigious Naim audio and Esthec floors

• 24/7 Princess Lifeline assistance anywhere in the world complimentary for two years

“The R35 is a rare mix of extreme elegance and technology. Often design is a triumph of beauty over function or function over beauty. Princess has been able to develop a technologically game-changing yacht that is also stunningly beautiful. It is in every way a new experience, yet also instantly recognisable as a Princess.”Antony Sheriff, Executive Chairman of Princess Yachts.
