The lovely 40m Imperial Princess Superyacht
This year’s launch of the gorgeous 40-meter Imperial Princess superyacht, built by the famous Princess shipyard from Plymouth, has been celebrated with two special showcases. The yacht’s double showcase has taken place at the Monaco Yacht Show and at the Festival de la Plaisance, providing curious and interested people with an extensive detailing of the largest production superyacht ever manufactured in Great Britain.
Built as a triple deck vessel, the Imperial Princess is semi-custom, very contemporary, luxurious and undeniably elegant yacht. It superbly combines curvy shapes with sleek lines, a strong personality with hospitality and exquisiteness with comfort.
As we start our journey through the Imperial Princess, we immediately stumble upon the grand main saloon, a lavish, modern area which provides a comfy lounge, a warm color scheme, welcoming interiors and subtle but rich touches of luxury. Surrounded by stalwart windows, which provide breathtaking panoramas, the grand main saloon also includes two foldout balconies.
Heading further, the main saloon comprises an aft lobby, nicely designed with gold, silver and glossy black hues, a main dining fore, with a high gloss rectangular dining table as centerpiece, surrounded by creamy, floral-printed cozy chairs, and a central lounge area with contemporary fittings and furnishing decked in warm palettes of crèmes, chocolate and grey.
The main vibe felt throughout is of balance, followed by gentleness and luxury. And then you realize it’s all built according to Scandinavian schemes of subtle bling. In addition, the main deck also provides a nice extension of the saloon, with a centrally-placed dining table, surrounded by a sofa and large chairs, alongside a fully-endowed bar, perfectly fit for al fresco dining.
It’s now time to move away from the main saloon and head through the ship’s central lobby. We thereby come across the luxurious master suite, covering the entirety of the fore main deck. Before going inside the master suite, we pass through an ante-room, fit for multiple uses, from TV room and reading room to lobby or private office. The full beam stateroom somewhat copies that main saloon in opulence and style, alongside a natural colour palette and subtle trim.
This area also features large windows, which provide gorgeous views and ample amounts of light. All this luxury and extravagance is continued fore, inside the en suite, which is reachable via a large dressing area with two walk-in wardrobes. The en suite can be easily designed as his and hers baths, separately, providing a large bath starboard and a large shower area port side, all encased by a plethora of mirrors.
Four additional luxurious guest cabins are located belowdecks, including a stunning VIP suite with vanity areas, full beam stateroom and a pretty nice L-shaped lounge area. The stateroom follows the elegant line of the Imperial Princess through creamy carpeting and light grey upholstery.
The same VIP suite also comprises a luxurious en suite with shower area and bath port side, alongside a lavish walk-in wardrobe starboard side. Located fore, there’s a second VIP suite, superbly similar to the first but including a slightly smaller stateroom. Twin-configured, the two remaining guest suites provide further guest accommodation, featuring large staterooms and exquisite en suites while being overwhelmed with natural light. They will reportedly be able to get converted into cinema areas and gym in the near future.
Heading upwards, towards the upper deck, we’re greeted by a lavish sky lounge with large, comfortable furnishing and exquisite materials, in a typical Scandinavian style, surrounded by large windows. The large aft deck is further providing a superb spot for al fresco dinners or cocktails, featuring a massive dining table which can accommodate up to 12 guests. Upstairs, the sun deck is equally spacious and luxurious, boasting with a large central lounge area, aft sun area with sun loungers, a big spa tub and bar.
