Princess Yachts R35 Princess Yachts' new R35 features the Princess Active Foil System (AFS)

Princess Yachts has tested its first 35ft long R35 prototype yacht powered with V8 engines to offer a top speed of 50 knots.

BAR Technologies and styling house Pininfarina partnered with Princess to design and create the carbon fibre vessel, which will feature the Princess Active Foil System.

Princess Yachts said the vessel will 'deliver the fastest and most efficient Princess boating experience to date'.

The company says the vessel is designed to be 'provocative, cutting edge and exhilarating' with a 'striking exterior' and reflects one of the most compelling and innovative designs it has ever created.

Features include a well-equipped galley and seating area, with the added flexibility to convert to a double berth, plus an ensuite.

The vessel includes top of the range performance technology throughout.

Built at Princess’ Plymouth headquarters, the vessel was tested in camouflage in UK waters ahead of its official unveiling.
