Winner of 2013 World Superyacht Awards – Princess 40M

The Princess 40M has been named as the winner of the ‘Three Deck Semi-Displacement or Planing Motor Yachts’ category.

Despite being the first foray into the arena of semi-custom superyachts for the UK-based Princess Yachts International, the judges felt that this first yacht of a series had been designed and built to impressively high standards.

They also admired her attractive exterior lines and her exterior and interior spaces, which were also well decorated and laid out to ensure an optimum division between the size of guest and crew areas.

Princess collaborated with Bernard Olesinski on the exterior stylist; Olesinski also provided naval architecture, while Bannenberg & Rowell Design and Princess gave the first 40m Princess her interior design.
