The first Princess 35M, Antheya III, has claimed the top prize at Boat International’s World Superyacht Awards in the Semi-Displacement & Planing Two Deck Motor Yacht category. The judges particularly admired her exterior design, which incorporated a variety of functional areas in which to relax and dine, as well as her contemporary yet ageless interior. Additionally, the judges found a high quality of construction and excellent technical, service and crew areas. Princess once again teamed up with British designer designer Bernard Olesinski to create a clean and flowing exterior with dynamic elements suggesting that Antheya III is not only designed to spend time at anchor off St. Tropez, but also to get there in style and speed.The sundeck has been kept simple, and save for the sociable U-shaped lounge and circular dining area, separated by a stylish bar and service area, this deck is left open to move about freely or to be used as the ultimate entertaining area. A flybridge helm and forward facing guest seating is located forward on a raised platform for increased visibility. From here one easily move down to the raised pilot house below through a central companionway. As the first point of entry for many guests, the salon on main deck certainly doesn’t disappoint. The first thing one notices are the full height side windows that blurs the lines between indoor and outdoor spaces. The fold down balcony, rich white leather upholstery, clever LED lighting and reflective surfaces together make this one of the most pleasant social areas on board. Moving forward from here is the tasteful full beam master suite. The stateroom is decorated in a mixture of light and darker textured woods and panelling. But it’s the abundance of natural light and simple feeling of free space that could well be this area’s most notable attribute. The large side windows, functional layout and excess of generous storage spaces all adds to the unrestricted ambience so apparent here. Further accommodation below consists of four guest staterooms; two twin and two double cabins. Princess has ditched the conventional use of this space completely however and on Antheya III, fitted a second full beam VIP suite here on the lower deck, now only with space for six guests below. The bunks in the two twin cabins forward can be merged to reveal two offset double beds. Luxury yacht ANTHEYA III offers comfortable and spacious accommodation for owners, guests and a professional crew of 6 members. Moreover, there are expansive deck areas, as well as a spacious flybridge, alternative seating and sunbathing area, all positioned on the foredeck, and an innovatively designed aft cockpit and transom area. Princess 35M yacht ANTHEYA III is constructed to the highest quality standards and to RINA classification and LY3, as well as to RINA ‘comfort on board’ specification.
