The M Class
The 32M is the first of Princess's new M Class of long-range cruising yachts, and is currently the largest yacht in the company's fleet. She's also the largest vessel ever to be exhibited indoors at London's Excel exhibition halls, site of that city's boat show. Over 13m (42') high, she barely fit through the doors of the South Hall. She made quite an impressive display. She is also one of the largest yachts to be built using resin-infusion technology, which reduces weight and improves performance and cruising range.But the 32M won't be the queen Princess for long: Later this year the company (which is owned by LVMH) will begin construction on the 130' tri-deck 40M, scheduled for launch early in 2012. The first 40M will be built for a current Princess customer and there is a lot of activity and interest at this point in future hulls.
Different Yachts, Different Layouts
The Princess 32M is offered with four or five guest staterooms. In each arrangement, the owner’s suite is on the main deck, with large windows that provide excellent views on two sides. Forward, an owner's head includes a spacious shower and separate whirlpool bath. As usual with a yacht of this size and caliber, each 32M owner has many opportunities to customize the yacht to meet his/her specific needs.
Belowdecks, the VIP suite spans the full beam; it's complemented by an additional VIP guest stateroom to port, and a twin-berth guest stateroom to starboard that is reached via a central lobby. Owners who enjoy cruising with larger groups, or those with an eye on the charter market, can opt for the five stateroom layout, with two double guest suites in place of the 'midships VIP stateroom. This is the arrangement on hull number one.
What's On the Horizon?
Princess says the 32M "heralds the dawn of a new era" for the company. Plans are underway to invest £45 million ($60 million) to create an industry-leading manufacturing site for building a range of larger yachts. Yes, we expect to see many more M Class Princesses over the next few years.
