R35’s game-changing performance

2 MINUTES READ

British craftsmanship and engineering pedigree

The R35 is a genuinely innovative and revolutionary yacht borne of a desire to combine all of Princess’s renowned design and quality strengths with new technologies, materials, and engineering and design partnerships. As the world’s first R Class performance sports yacht, the R35 will make its debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival in September 2018. To deliver a truly game-changing sports yacht, Princess has teamed up with the world’s finest design and technology partners to ensure the R35 delivers a new, intoxicating experience. It will enthral Princess loyalists and engage new customers at first sight and first ride. The inspiration for the R35 came from many sources, but focussed on one clear goal: how could Princess deliver a beautiful and elegant yacht that re-defines dynamic performance?

A key differentiator is Princess’s unique collaboration with BAR Technologies – the British company behind Britain’s attempt to win back the America’s Cup – that allows the R35 to utilise the benefits of foiling technologies to take performance, handling and efficiency to new heights. What followed was a meeting of minds, as Princess challenged BAR Technologies to transfer their racing knowledge into the motor yacht industry. The result is the ingenious Princess Active Foil System (AFS). Twin moving foils beneath the waterline provide improved dynamic stability, raise the performance bar and increase efficiency. AFS does not elevate the hull above the waterline like the America’s Cup sailing yachts. Instead, it uses the lift to dynamically adjust the heel and running angle, optimising ride and comfort.
