The all-new Princess R35

Experience the R/Evolution – an entirely new class of yacht.

Forget everything you know about Princess, close your eyes and clear your mind. Jump in… the water’s lovely.

The R35 is the first Princess R Class performance sports yacht, with an impressive speed range of 45 – 50 knots making for a truly exhilarating experience on the water. Designed and hand-built by Princess Yachts International in Plymouth, England, she combines revolutionary performance with stunning design and quality, encompassing the recognisable Princess brand with a new breed of yacht. The R35 delivers a unique on-water experience at all times with power and handling at the forefront of the design.

Designed in partnership with the world-famous BAR Technologies and Pininfarina, the all-new R35 brings a craft unique to Princess and to the current yachting market. Combining the very latest in advanced technology and naval architecture, this game-changing yacht with its unique Princess Active Foil System (AFS) delivers the fastest and most efficient Princess boating experience to date.

Her powerful V8 petrol engines accelerate to an adrenalin-filled 50 knots, and when combined with her full carbon fibre constructed hull make for a smooth and efficient ride. Whether you’re slicing through the seas at top speed or cruising at a gentle 20 knots, you’ll find consistence in her stability, comfort and performance. The R35 is a symphony of curves and edges, with flowing lines and a contemporary eye-catching look. From her proud bow to the elegant swoop of her stern, you can’t help but attract admiring glances on the water.


Not normally associated with sports yachts, the R35 has a wraparound Esthec walkway providing easy and safe access between the spacious cockpit and the bow. In the cockpit, a large U-shaped sofa provides ample entertaining space to relax, unwind and socialise with a smart removable table for dining. A large sunpad aft of the cockpit allows guests to soak up the rays whilst being able to socialise with the group on board. As for technology, you won’t find yourself short on board. Three beautifully upholstered sliding helm seats allow you and your guests to be up close to the action. Twin 17″ Volvo Garmin touchscreens display all engine and onboard data through a bespoke suite of interface pages, designed exclusively for Princess. The user-friendly system allows you to connect with the vessel, monitoring engine data, managine onboard environments and giving control and visual feedback of the AFS with electric switching.


Below deck, there is a deceptively spacious cabin with lots of natural daylight provided by wraparound windows. A wet room with a head and galley ensures comfort at sea, giving you the necessities you need to enjoy a home from home. The dinette seating with table converts into a double berth for overnight adventures, giving great flexibility in living space on board this sports yacht. The painstaking attention to detail recognised with Princess Yachts is certainly apparent in the design of the R35, from the forward facing camera on the bow providing a live feed to the Naim innovative audio system throughout, every little thing has been thought of. A choice of interior colour palettes and the finest materials create a bespoke and luxurious space to relax in, away from the elements and secluded.


“This was a very exciting project for the Princess Design Studio where our aim was to create a boat that is innovative, exciting and forward thinking in terms of finishes and styling, whilst retaining the integrity of a Princess in terms of practical use, well-considered execution and absolute attention to detail” – Sarah Verey, Director of Creative Design.


The eagerly anticipated World Premiere of the Princess R35 will be at the Cannes Yachting Festival, 11th – 16th September 2018. To arrange an appointment during the show, please contact our sales office on +44 (0)1489 557755 or email
