The new Princess 62 will make its world debut Sept. 12-17 at the Cannes Yachting Festival and also be shown Sept. 15-24 at the Southampton Boat Show. 

The new flybridge model is built with infusion technology. Princess Yachts said this lets the company design features on the boat that are normally only possible on larger craft. Full-length side windows give the main deck saloon a more spacious feel by letting in more natural light. Additionally, the galley is positioned aft and opens to the cockpit.

The lower helm is located to starboard, with additional forward-facing guest seating opposite. Up top, the flybridge helm is to port with two bucket seats and there’s a circular lounge adjacent to starboard. A large horseshoe-shaped lounge wraps around a table and aft is a triple-wide chaise-style sunpad.

Below deck are three cabins with ensuite heads and hanging lockers. The master and VIP staterooms have the berths positioned on the centerline so vessel movement will have minimal affect on sleeping passengers.

Princess offers the boat with two power options, twin Volvo Penta D13-900 inboards that give the 62 an estimated top speed of approximately 30 knots or twin Caterpillar 12.9 1000s that boost the number by a couple of knots.
