British yard Princess Yachts has announced that it is working with BAR Technologies on a carbon fibre project billed as an “entirely new class of yacht”.
The project is shrouded in secrecy to prevent any details being released before its official unveiling, with the only known fact being that its length is mid-30 foot (approximately 10.6 metres). BAR Technologies covered the new-build in a camouflage hull wrap as it was recently transported out of its yard in Portsmouth, UK (pictured above).
BAR Technologies was established to share design knowledge, technical skills and resources built up through Land Rover BAR’s involvement in the America’s Cup.
Anthony Sheriff, executive chairman of Princess Yachts, commented, “We are thrilled to be working on a brand new, fully carbon fibre yacht that will deliver an exhilarating experience through bold innovation and cutting-edge technology.
“While we cannot reveal more at this point, we are confident this entirely new class of yacht, which is one of the most exciting and revolutionary products Princess has developed, will become this year’s most sought-after product.”
Other projects currently in development at the Plymouth-based yard include the Princess 30M Superyacht series, with the latest 30m hull having launched in December 2017.
