The first Princess flybridge with the IPS pod drive system, the new Princess 49 is in a class of its own.This unique model combines easy handling with the additional living space enjoyed by many of the Princess flybridge models. Panoramic windows and generous seating create a bright space for entertaining, while below decks accommodation includes beautifully appointed full beam stateroom plus two further cabins for guests.
Launched in September 2016, the Princess 49 cleverly combines high performance, economical seakeeping, manoeuvrability and the ease of handling associated with the very latest IPS pod drive system. This is the very first Princess flybridge with IPS drive.
Cutting through waves at speeds up to 35 knots or cruising at a highly economical 30 knots, the new Princess 49 promises to be sublimely enjoyable. Guests can enjoy spacious accommodation both above and below decks – that’s perfect for hosting thanks to the uniquely designed deep-V hull.
Everyone can enjoy the view from the flybridge which incorporates a twin helm seat, a large L-shaped sofa that converts into a sunpad, and a generous seating area aft with a folding table. A refrigerated icebox is fitted as standard and a wetbar with BBQ is optionally available.
The sociable layout continues in the well-designed deck saloon that comes alive with light from the panoramic windows and features an ingenious aft-galley that can be fitted with a full-height fridge/freezer and optional icemaker. This bright space leads onto the cockpit via triple sliding doors which incorporates U-shaped seating and a folding teak table to further enjoy the outdoor lifestyle.
