Vast and Versatile Princess 35M

Published on October 15, 2015 by   ·   No Comments


The first completed Princess 35M superyacht, Antheya III, has been doing the rounds of the Mediterranean this summer.  After her world debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival at the beginning of September, her new owner kindly allowed manufacturer Princess Yachts to show her off at the Monaco Yacht Show later in the month.

Princess is obviously doing something right as the owner of Antheya III was already a Princess Yachts client and upgraded from a 2011 Princess 32M superyacht, Antheya II.  With her distinctive steel grey hull, the 35M’s exterior is simply breathtaking and she is decorated throughout with Fendi Casa decor, another brand, like Princess, under the LVMH (Louis Vuitton Moët Hennessy) umbrella.


The 35M’s exterior spaces are vast and versatile.  The standard flybridge design comes with a dining area, hot tub and plenty of room for sunbathing.  An optional bar can be specified to create an informal leisure space that can easily be transformed into a formal dining area.  The owner of Antheya III, clearly a fan of large dinner parties, changed this around and has added a larger dining area which seats 12, and replaced the Jacuzzi with a large sofa, which still leaves plenty of room for stretching out on the Ibiza-style sunbeds aft.  The ‘beach club’ theme continues on the foredeck, which is accessed through a port side door, with space enough for a football team to top up their tan.

Antheya III’s transom has an alfresco dining area for eight, and more Bali beds (we did say the outdoor spaces are vast), while inside the saloon is incredibly light and airy thanks to the full-height panoramic windows.  If the weather’s inclement, there’s yet another dining area inside, and also plenty of comfortable seating for lounging about and watching telly in the evening.


Located forward of the main deck is a full beam owner’s stateroom.  These owner’s quarters are accessed via an ante room which can be used as an office or dressing room, although there is already plenty of storage space with two walk-in wardrobes.  The en-suite bathroom has both a bath and a separate shower, while no superyacht bathroom would be complete without his and hers sinks, although the side-by-side his and hers loos could take a bit of getting used to.

On the lower deck, the 35M can be configured to accommodate six or eight guests in either three or four en-suite staterooms.  The crew quarters are located forward and comprise one double and two single cabins, all with en-suite facilities.


This is a popular model with three 35Ms currently in build, all of which will be launched next year.  If you’re interested in purchasing a 35M (you can always get those side-by-side loos modified) when Hull No 5 is available to be built in early 2017.
