Luxurious Magazine presents the must-see luxury motor yachts being launched at this year’s PSP Southampton Boat Show, taking place between 14th to 23rd September on the south coast of the UK.
On Berth M183, Fairline will be showing off the very best of British manufacturing, in the form of the the new Targa 62GT which boasts stunning performance and good looks, excellent sea-keeping, as well as exceptional accommodation throughout, with an incredibly spacious interior. Fairline has taken its 45 years of experience and created a new motor yacht that is nothing less than magnificent. As you would expect with a Fairline Targa, the 62GT has a spacious cockpit configuration, luxuriously large sunpad and a fabulous galley. Fairline has also introduced a hi-low bathing platform on the 62GT, a first for the Targa range. www.fairline.com
Princess Yachts from Devon will be unveiling the new V62-S, which is set to strengthen the manufacturer’s position at the forefront of the sector with what is sure to be another highly acclaimed and market leading sports yacht. Ever since the launch of the model in 2008, the Princess V62 has taken the sports yacht market by storm, receiving accolades and awards globally for its class leading combination of exhilarating performance and exceptional accommodation. With stunning looks, agile and responsive handling, and incredibly spacious interior, the V62 epitomises everything that is the V Class, and the second generation model delivers all of this, and more.
The new V62-S brings an astonishing list of specification improvements and cosmetic enhancements to what was already an outstanding sports yacht. The aft cockpit has been increased in length to provide an even greater space in which to entertain or relax with generous seating around a beautifully detailed teak dining table. New hull glazing enhances both exterior styling and interior ambience with large midships windows now angled to complement her sleek and sporty profile. Inside, the yacht is light, contemporary, and beautifully finished with the finest materials and intricate detailing, which complements its elegant and sophisticated style. The main deck saloon is wonderfully spacious with panoramic windows, low level furniture, and an incredible large sunroof. Slim framed sliding doors connect the saloon to the cockpit to create one beautifully large entertaining space.
The lower saloon features a dining area for more formal entertaining serviced by the galley opposite which is equipped to cater for an extended stay on board. Owners and guests are equally well catered for in the three well-appointed cabins including a wonderfully light and spacious en-suite owner’s cabin which makes full use of the yacht’s generous full beam. www.princessyachts.com
On Stand C080, Southampton will equally stage the UK premiere of the eagerly awaited new Sunseeker International Predator 80 and Portofino 40 luxury motor yachts with the help of Formula 1 World Champion Jenson Button and BBC TV pundit, Eddie Jordan. The latest additions will be accompanied by ten of Sunseeker’s finest luxury yachts including the recently launched 28 Metre Yacht which will be on the water.
The all new Predator 80 will join its famous siblings as the most flexible yacht in the range, offering limitless options from top-end sports performance through to long distance cruising. The stunning range of options available on the Predator 80 truly makes it a yacht to suit every lifestyle. With a sleek, and aggressive new look, the Predator 80 will accommodate a guest party of eight in a four cabin arrangement, with crew quarters in the stern. With the performance option of Twin Arneson drives coupled with twin 16V 2000 M14 MTUs, the Predator will leave the competition in its wake at a top speed of 45 knots, while the standard engine option still delivers an impressive 30-40 knot performance. The all new Portofino 40 is being launched following an intensive study of this highly competitive sector culminating in the creation of a truly class-leading all-rounder. The spacious four+one berth layout features two exquisitely designed cabins, a luxurious central saloon, galley, and twin access head and shower room. The real delight of this new sports cruiser is the spacious feeling throughout, spanning from the exquisite owner’s stateroom right through to the spacious VIP galley. The surprising headroom and impressive panoramic hull-side windows which flood light to the cabins and saloon as well as creating a real ‘wow factor’, give an impression of space not found in any of its competitors in the same class. www.sunseeker.com
