Princess Yacht Charter: From the experts in luxury yacht hire

If you want to enjoy the luxury of a Princess yacht without committing to an immediate purchase, there are still plenty of possibilities on the yacht charter market. In fact, the Princess fleet has evolved to an extraordinary degree in recent years, with everything from high-performance express cruisers and elegant ‘sport-fly’ motor yachts right through to advanced trawler-style long-distance platforms like the Princess X95. And while the radical new R35 is too small for crewed charter, the charter fleet also now encompasses several 100-foot-plus superyachts from the extraordinary Princess M Class range. In short, there is now more scope than ever for those who want to choose a Princess yacht for their next charter experience – and here at Princess Yacht Charter, we have options at every size and for every budget…

Croatia yacht charter

Yacht charter example 1: Princess 62

One of our most affordable Princess charter yachts is also one of our most entertaining. Built in 2008 and refitted in 2014, PAMANGO is a Princess 62 with accommodation for eight, plus a beamy design that delivers plenty of indoor and outdoor flexibility. Operating out of the classical maritime city of Split, with easy access to the delights of Croatia’s glorious Adriatic coastline, the interior design is relaxed and modern with warm woods and neutral furnishings. On the main deck, the saloon’s two-level layout features a pair of excellent socialising zones, plus a fully equipped galley and a bright dining area with panoramic views. Down below, the full-beam en-suite master cabin is supplemented with a forward VIP suite, as well as a bunk cabin that’s ideal for kids and a twin that’s easily converted into a double. Back outside, the wet bar and barbecue are ideal for alfresco fun and, with twin Caterpillar C18 engines for 32-knot performance, it puts Croatia’s key attractions well within reach of a one-week charter.

Yacht charter example 2: Princess S72

Built in 2016 and refitted as recently as 2019, NELENA is an extraordinarily sophisticated charter yacht. The forward part of the saloon offers a brilliant circular seating section alongside the helm, which is great for informal dining with outstanding views ahead. There’s also plenty of relaxed lounge furniture further aft, with easy access to the open-air fun of the aft cockpit. A big swim platform with twin steps means easy access to the water and plenty of opportunity to use the extensive collection of onboard toys. In addition to a sporty Williams 385-S Jet RIB with wakeboards, waterskis and inflatable donuts, this includes a pair of Princess limited-edition F5 Seabobs, a set of paddleboards and some snorkelling gear. Capable of accommodating six people in three opulent cabins, she operates in the Caribbean during the winter, before moving to Corsica, Sardinia and the French & Italian Rivieras during the summer – so if your charter timings are critical, NELENA is ideal.

Yacht charter example 3: Princess Y85

Delivered brand new in 2021, TOR is a fine example of a modern Princess flybridge motor yacht. The vast fly deck features a pair of central helm seats cocooned in wraparound bench seating. It also features a large aft sunpad, plus a generous wet bar, adjacent to a C-shaped dining station, with convertible shade built into the sleek hardtop. The main deck is also very flexible in terms of its provision of both private hideaways and engaging social zones. The huge single-level main deck saloon offers three separate seating areas. These are supplemented with a bar at the ingenious ‘smart’ galley, as well as a pair of alfresco party zones – one in the aft cockpit and another on the beautifully appointed foredeck. Up to eight guests can be accommodated across four cabins, each with an en suite bathroom, featuring plush marble trim, double sinks and walk-in wet room showers.

Princess 30m

Yacht charter example 4: Princess 30M

Delivered in 2019, Princess 30M superyacht HALLELUJAH represents fantastic value for money. The pale woods and fabrics of its interior make the best possible use of the natural light that floods in through the vast windows. Sliding side doors help further integrate the saloon with the outside world and the large oval dining table provides ample space for all ten guests. Fresh, contemporary and minimalist with a distinctive powder-blue hull, HALLELUJAH’s external deck space includes an outdoor bar and a fly deck with usefully convertible sunshade. It also features a range of dining, seating and sunbathing options with a very flexible combination of integrated and freestanding furniture. As an M Class superyacht, it also makes best possible use of its Mediterranean cruising grounds with a Williams Dieseljet 445 tender, plus a three-man SeaDoo Spark PW, a set of Seabobs, a pair of stand-up paddleboards and the full complement of waterski and wakeboard gear.

Imperial Princess Yacht Charter

Yacht charter example 5: Princess 40M

The most lavish and prestigious way to enjoy a Princess charter is undoubtedly on board a Princess 40M – and at Princess Yacht Charter, we have a couple of options. On the one hand, you could go for SOLARIS. At €140,000, she provides accommodation for 12 people in six staterooms with space for eight crew. Operating in and around Corsica, Sardinia, the Amalfi Coast and the French Riviera, she features a walk-in beach club, a spa bath and a range of secluded sunbathing retreats. On the other hand, you could spend an extra €15,000 on IMPERIAL PRINCESS BEATRICE. Built in 2012 and lavishly refitted in 2018, she has one cabin fewer but she majors on her sheer variety of communal spaces. Whether you want to unwind in your own private alcove, take in the view from one of the magnificent pop-out balconies, relax in the Jacuzzi, dine in the opulent saloon or ascend to the upper deck for open-air sundowners, it’s all there to be enjoyed.
