Princess yachts continues its HoF support

and JBR Capital steps in to back newly introduced award

Princess is proud to continue its partnership with the Motor Sport Hall of Fame for the second year running. The premier yacht marque will sponsor the Formula 1 category, recognising the best engineers, drivers and designers from the world’s most celebrated single-seater racing category.

The news comes as Princess gears up to announce its highly anticipated, all-new R class: 35ft in length, fully carbon fibre and powered by V8 engines boasting an impressive top speed of 50 knots, the boat will be Princess’s most sporting model yet.

Princess Yachts is proud to have partnered with BAR Technologies and Pininfarina to bring a whole new breed of yacht to the market, with the very latest in advanced technology and naval architecture. The all-new R Class will feature the unique Princess Active Foil System (AFS) and deliver the fastest and most efficient Princess boating experience to date. The striking exterior reflects one of the most compelling and innovative designs the firm has yet created and conceals a spacious cabin within. It features a well equipped galley and seating area, with the added flexibility to convert to a generous double berth, further complemented by an en-suite.

“This ground-breaking new yacht remains a true Princess at heart, with the same level of comfort, practicality and seakeeping – and all combined with the very latest ideas and progressive performance technology from the Princess Design Studio,” says Kiran Haslam, marketing director of Princess Yachts.
