Attendees at the Cannes boat show will get the world’s first look at the Princess 62.

Princess Yachts will introduce its new 62 as part of a nine-boat display at the Cannes Yachting Festival from Sept. 12-17.

In addition to boats from the British manufacturer the Princess booth will feature a Bentley Continental GT V8 Convertible Galene Edition by Mulliner automobile.

The Princess 62 measures 63 feet, 5 inches overall, with a 16-foot, 6-inch beam. The flybridge features an aft-facing sun lounge, a large U-shaped seating area around a table and dual bucket seats at the port-side helm with a circular lounge to starboard.

Below on the main deck there’s a lounge with a table in the cockpit, plus forward lounges in the bow. At the aft end of the salon there’s a galley to port with a couch and table to starboard.

Move forward and there’s a larger lounge area abaft the lower helm, which is to starboard and has dual bucket seats so a companion can keep the captain company during a long cruise.

Belowdecks the full-beam owner’s suite is aft with an en-suite head and dual hanging lockers. There’s a VIP stateroom in the bow with its own private head, and to starboard is a cabin with twin single berths and access to the day head. Abaft the engine compartment are the crew quarters.

The Princess 62 comes with a choice of power. Estimated speed with twin 900-hp Volvo Penta D13-900s is about 31 knots. Step up to twin 1,000-hp Caterpillar 12.9 1000s, and that number increases to about 32.5 knots.
