Destined to write the latest chapter in luxury cruising, the Princess 98 Motor Yacht delivers world-class performance while raising the bar to new levels of comfort and elegance.
The latest modified deep V hull is combined with engine choices in the range of 1800 to 2400 horsepower to give outstanding performance and a genuine long range cruising capability. Special attention has been paid to noise and vibration control through enhanced engine and machinery space soundproofing and exhaust systems to achieve class leading comfort.
The expansive flybridge area has been designed not only to accommodate tender, waverunner, and liferaft storage, but also features abundant seating and sunning space with enough room left over for a sizeable bar area. The aft deck is equipped for relaxing dockside with a large seating area with table and chairs and ample room to accommodate an optional bar. Stepping into the salon, the emphasis is on creating an open feel with a residential-style seating area and a well equipped entertainment center to starboard. The transverse dining table accommodates eight guests comfortably, with storage for china and serving pieces in the surrounding cabinetry. The forward area of the main deck is dedicated to creating a social galley featuring household-sized appliances and a raised dinette for panoramic views that will provide the perfect setting to take in the sunrise over a cup of coffee. A day head on the main deck is convenient not only to the pilothouse and galley areas, but to the salon and dining room as well.
As always with the Princess Yachts product line, the goal is to achieve a balance between maximized volume while maintaining performance parameters. Given the layout of the lower deck of the 98 Motor Yacht, it is clear this balance has been accomplished without sacrifice to the livability of the accommodations for owners, guests, and crew. The standard four stateroom layout provides not only a full beam midship master stateroom, but also two further VIP staterooms and a twin bed guest cabin. A five stateroom layout is also available which adds an upper and lower twin berth stateroom just aft of the forward stateroom. Attention is paid in the crew quarters to providing an area not only for sleeping, but also a kitchenette with seating area and entertainment system so that crew members feel well cared for. With either a two or three stateroom crew quarter layout available so as to allow the owner flexibility, the intention is to give the crew a larger living area than is typically found in yachts of this size. Finally, the two laundry centers, one forward and one in the crew area, help maintain privacy for owners and guests.
The 98MY is RINA 100A1 certified, and MCA large ship certification will be available for owners who wish to charter.
