Princess Yachts breaks the mould

The new M Class 115 footer is out of the mould

MOULD: Princess Yachts’ latest M Class superyachts has been successfully released from its layup stage within the Princess South Yard superyacht facility in Plymouth.

The hull section for the new 115ft 35M, finished in Princess Steel Grey, slipped from its mould and was moved using a specialist low-loader shipping in from Italy to its new home just yards away.

“It was an incredibly proud moment for Princess Yachts as the first 35M hill was released from the mould which was the culmination of a tremendous amount of hard work from a dedicated and skilled team,” said Richard Lambert, M Class director.

“The 35M represents a leap forward in raised pilot house design and it will be a dominant player in this important and dynamic market segment,” he added.

Now the fit-out stage of the 35M’s build process will begin, with the TRAC stabiliser system, twin MTU V16 2637hp engines and general engineering work already underway. Once completed, the main deck sections will be added.
