The YBW team brings you a round up of the best new launches at the Southampton Boat Show 2016.

Princess Yachts

Highlights from the Plymouth-based luxury yacht builder included show debuts of four of their 2016 models – the Princess 75, the Princess V58 Deck Saloon, the Princess 49 and the 30M.


Princess 49

Attracting masses of attention, the Princess 49 created quite a stir  – it is the first Princess Flybridge yacht with the latest twin Volvo IPS-550 pod drive system.

The vessel has a top speed of 35 knots and the new drive system promises ease of handling.

The Princess 30M was launched in January at Boot Dusseldorf

One of the largest yachts on display, the 30M is the latest addition to the Princess M Class range.

Billed as one of the most luxurious raised pilothouse yachts in the world, 30M is elegant and sleek. It was first unveiled at Boot Dusseldorf in January.

Making its Southampton debut, the Princess 75 promises a perfect combination of agile cruising and open plan elegance – and it certainly lived up to its billing.

Its chic exterior was accentuated with its use of a sophisticated, neutral palette highlighted with accent colours.

With three en-suite guest cabins plus master, a top speed of up to 35 knots, and plenty, it is easy to see why this motor yacht would be ideal for entertaining.


Princess V58 Deck Saloon

This striking craft is the latest addition to the V Class range.

Its flexibility makes it a desirable motor yacht: enclosed, it can be climate controlled or in fair weather, the triple sliding aft doors and a retractable sunroof can be opened.

Below, it is also light and airy, thanks to the large, dynamic hull windows.



Oyster 675

A fantastic all rounder  – the new Oyster 675 has a more powerful rig plan for faster passages, but still offers comfort.

It is also incredible practical, with foredeck stowage for the tender and a step-down sunbathing platform.

Its lower profile and stretched deck saloon window gives it a sporty feel.

The 675 is also roomy, with two spacious double guest cabins complementing the full beam master suite and a fourth cabin for crew.

Ideal for sailing with family, for occasional charter, or for long distance exploring and adventure.



Sunseeker 95


As spacious and stylish as its sister yacht, the Sunseeker 28 Metre Yacht, the 95 has superyacht class.

Its raised pilot house means there is a lot more space on the main deck than you would normally expect from a motor yacht of this size.

It’s also a great choice for entertaining, with bar, optional hot tub and plenty of seating for guests – certainly one for those who have plenty of friends and family to entertain!

Predator 68 MK II

Sunseeker Predator 68 MK II

A great choice for sport yacht lovers! We loved its sleek lines and its flexibility, with its sliding sunroof and patio doors.

It oozed luxury at every turn, with its vast sun pad, chic interiors and hydraulic lifting platform to assist in the launching of a tender or jet ski.

Manhattan 52


It might be Sunseeker’s smallest flybridge model, but nothing has been overlooked.

The great use of curved glass emphasised its sleek lines.

There is plenty of space too – with convertible helm seating and bi-fold saloon doors which really opens out the available space.

The bathing platform and transom area definitely caught our eye as it can be converted into a mini beach club.


Fairline Yachts

Targa 53 OPEN

This sporty new cruiser is ideal for those who want freedom and fun on the water.

There is plenty of space both above and below deck for entertaining – with generous U-shaped cockpit seating, a wet bar and a large sunpad above the tender garage.

This stylish design also makes the maximum use of natural light – with stunning tapered hull glazing.

A must for those who love British-built motor yachts and who have a large circle of friends and family!


Squadron 65 HardTop

Fairline Yachts Squadron 65 Hardtop

The addition of a factory fitted hardtop on the Squadron 65 makes it even more desirable – providing extra sun shade for guests and adjustable mood lighting for evening entertaining.

Inside, it is sumptuous, with plenty of attention to detail.

There is an updated galley layout, which features stone inlays and leather tile detailing.

The huge flybridge also provides ample space with three distinct social areas – a forward cruising chaise longue and sunpad, aft facing sunbeds and a seating/dining area.

Guest can relax, surrounded by luxury.


Prestige 560

The Prestige 560 is 18.22 metres long

One of the UK’s biggest yacht brokers, Ancasta, has unveiled the the largest model in the Prestige Flybridge collection – the Prestige 560.

This new Prestige features the original shape of the Prestige 550, yet offers additional advantages.

Her new swim platform is elongated and affords the same easy access developed for the Yachts range, with an automatically deploying staircase. Her interior has been modified, as well. Luxurious and bright, the layout of the Prestige 560 offers even greater comfort and more clever design features.

The Prestige 560 is equipped with 2 Cummins Zeus pods with integrated flaps.

She will also be available in Sportfly version.


Spirit Yachts

The stunning Spirit 47CR represents some of the best of British boatbuilding.

Traditionally handcrafted, the 47-foot cruising yacht oozes quality and heritage. And really, this isn’t a surprise considering Spirit brought us the 54-foot Soufrière of James Bond fame.

Elegant and sophisticated, the 47CR is a tiger underneath; an impressive power to weight ratio offers the option for competitive racing.

With more space down below than other Spirit Yachts, it is easy to see why you would want to sail off into the sunset onboard the 47CR.
