We were at the world launch of the new Princess S60 Sport Bridge at the London Boat Show. Despite being the smallest of the S-Class models, it's designed to show off the very best of the S-Class DNA.

The main deck is all about a usable variety of sociable spaces. In pursuit of that you get an excellent foredeck seating area, you get great companion seating just opposite the two-man helm and as you step down to the lower level and the aft galley you get additional seating and excellent integration with the aft spaces of the cockpit.

Below decks you have sleeping for six people in three cabins with a pair of heads compartments both with showers. The fixtures and fittings all feel very bespoke very custom as we have come to expect from Princess. What is really impressive here in the big full-beam master suite is not just the big glazing sections on the hull the tremendous head room even at the head end of the boat


The flybridge is set quite a long way aft. It is also quite deep-set and quite short, but it makes up for that with its breadth and again with a tremendous amount of seating. In summary, what we have is a very high performance, sociable and great-looking motor yacht. It's actually very difficult to find fault.
