Imaginative, ingenious, inspired. There simply is no better way to describe the incredible design of the Princess 78 Motor Yacht, which marries contemporary style, unrivaled comfort, and understated elegance in an extremely capable blue water cruising yacht.
Employing advanced technology and innovative construction techniques, the 78 Motor Yacht stands as a superb example of what science and art can achieve in modern performance cruising yacht design. A majority of the fiberglass components are molded using a resin infusion process that maximizes strength while reducing weight to increase the yacht’s efficiency. To complement this, a highly refined deep V hull design delivers remarkable speed, responsive handling, and exceptional sea keeping ability. Beyond the sciences of design and performance, however, the true art of the 78 Motor Yacht lies in the unrivaled blend of luxury, comfort, and practical style found on board.
From the raised sunpad with provision for an optional hot tub to the large settee that spans the majority of the port side, the flybridge deck offers an amazing amount of space with several comfortable entertaining areas. A convenient bar area is centrally located to starboard and is equipped with an electric grill, sink, top loading refrigerator, and icemaker. Forward, the impressive array of standard navigation equipment is housed on a clever hydraulic raise and lower helm panel. A centerline helm seat is complemented by additional seating to port and starboard and offers optimum visibility underway. Overhead, a fiberglass hardtop with integrated retractable center section and optional three or four sided enclosure ensures comfort in a variety of weather conditions. Aft on the flybridge, there is space for a sizeable tender to be stored with the standard electro-hydraulic davit making launch and retrieval a breeze.
On the main deck, the hydraulic bathing platform provides a beach-like setting for waterside activities and doubles as additional tender or personal watercraft storage. Twin molded stairwells flank a sizeable storage compartment on the transom and lead to the expansive aft deck area. Under the shade of the flybridge deck above, the upholstered settee with table provides the perfect setting for al fresco dining. Through the brightly polished stainless steel framed door, the salon is an open and inviting space with residential style seating ideally situated for enjoying casual conversation and the incredible views afforded by the large side windows. The centrally located bar area is complete with a refrigerator and bottle and glass storage, while an additional cabinet houses the standard home theater system. Behind the starboard settee, a large LCD TV conceals when not in use. Just forward of the salon, the dining area features a beautifully crafted table with seating for eight guests and abundant storage in the surrounding cabinetry. The adjacent galley has an open feel, but can be closed off from the dining area for more private functions. An upright refrigerator/freezer, microwave convection oven, dishwasher, trash compactor, and cooktop are complemented by generous storage, while the side deck door provides easy access from the port deck for dockside provisioning. Steps from the galley, the forward dinette provides the perfect breakfast nook with incredible panoramic views of the bow. To starboard, the ergonomically balanced main helm is replete with a comprehensive navigation package and features fully adjustable helm and companion seats carefully crafted for ultimate comfort.
The gem of the lower deck is surely the luxurious master suite, which spans the full beam and enjoys beautiful waterside views courtesy of ten large vertical portlights. The centerline king size bed is complemented by a casual dining area to starboard and a large vanity to port. An ingenious walk through dressing room provides plentiful closet space and leads to the near full beam master head with twin sinks and large stall shower. The forward VIP guest stateroom is bathed in natural light from both the enlarged portlights and an overhead skylight and deck hatch. A separate vanity, walkaround centerline berth, and en suite head make this a delightful retreat. A luxuriously appointed second VIP guest stateroom with walkaround berth and a further guest stateroom with twin berths both feature en suite heads to ensure the ultimate in privacy and comfort for all on board. In addition to the guest accommodations, a separate crew area is accessed from both a watertight door on the transom and the starboard side deck and is equipped with a twin berth stateroom, separate en suite head with stall shower, and a utility area that can be equipped as either a crew mess or additional storage area.
With a combination of beautiful lines, advanced technology, and highly sophisticated accommodations unrivaled in comfort, the stunning 78 Motor Yacht is destined to become a class leader.
