Princess R35

An Entirely New Class of Yacht

Born of a desire to combine the very finest of Princess's experience with new technologies, materials, and engineering that challenge the boundaries of yachting - R Class is our brand new range of performance sports yachts. In a first for the yacht industry, we partnered with BAR for their America's Cup winning technology and legendary Italian designers, Pininfarina on what is their first ever boat. The result has torn up the rulebook, rocked the boat industry and set the benchmark for the next generation of Princess yachts.

The Princess AFS

Hydrodynamics are the new fast forward in yachting. The Princess Active Foil System (AFS) developed in partnership with BAR Technologies - the British company behind Britain’s attempt to win back the America’s Cup, works in conjunction with the hull to dramatically improve stability, comfort and seakeeping whilst reducing drag by up to 30%. Port and starboard foils adjust independently of each other, their positions calculated 100 times per second by an onboard computer to re-define ride comfort and high-speed cornering ability. Unlike other foil technologies, AFS does not lift the hull out of the water. Instead, it adjusts the heel angle and attitude of the boat ensuring the most effective contact area at the bow at any speed for stable travel and extreme levels of grip. A mode selector at the helm allows you to choose between Sport and Comfort control algorithms which adjust the attitude and responsiveness of the foils to suit your wishes. AFS works with the sea rather than battling against it, providing a completely new, on the water experience.

Experience state-of-the-art technology

A combination of stunning design, quality and race-bred technology, the R35 is a revolutionary performance experience at all speeds. Twin direct injection V8 petrol engines with variable valve timing provide exceptional levels of torque and responsiveness to safely power her to an exhilarating 50 knots: the fastest-ever Princess. Her windshield is a sweep of curved glass, tuned using Computational Fluid Dynamics. Together with deployable side wind deflectors, the airflow moves cleanly above the cockpit and passengers' head levels to create a neutral 'bubble' enabling you to ride, protected from the wind, without getting wet. The aerodynamically tuned twin air outlets on the transom help supress any back spray on the stern of the boat. Aft of the cockpit a sun-pad invites you to soak up the sunshine before you step down to the elegantly proportioned swim platform to cool off. A masterpiece - her technologically tuned form and insatiable performance, place her in a class of her own.
