New Princess Y85 Motor Yacht Sold
by Malcolm Maclean
A new 26.82 motor yacht has been sold with the buyer introduced by Mike McCarthy at HMY Yacht Sales.
Currently under construction in GRP at British yard Princess Yachts to a design by naval architects Olesinksi and Italian styling house Pininfarina as one of the yard’s new Y85 series, delivery is scheduled for later in 2020. Accommodation is for eight guests across four en suite cabins. The master cabin will be lit by natural light streaming through two large windows and features a dressing room equipped with wardrobes and drawers.
The yacht’s design focuses on al fresco living and the sundeck features a large dining area positioned opposite a wet bar, barbecue and fridge. A large aft sunpad and forward-facing seating area, meanwhile, is located either side of the helm while the bow area offers a U-shaped seating area.
The sunbeds feature adjustable teak headrests and convert into aft-facing sofas while an aft mounted swim platform allows guests to cool off in the water.
Dining and entertainment areas are abundant inside too. In the main deck saloon, a U-shaped aft seating area moves forward to a circular dining area adjacent to the galley. A separate wheelhouse and side deck doors will enable the crew to move discretely around the yacht. Her top speed is 33 knots and her power comes from two 1,900hp MAN V12-1900 diesel engines.
The Princess Y85 was asking $8,856,000.
