Superyachts are impressive in the water, but they look even larger when hauled out — giving you a close-up look of their entire underbody structure.

Visitors to January’s London Boat Show will get a chance to do just that when Princess Yachts unveils the new 32M, its largest superyacht to date — and the largest yacht ever exhibited inside London’s Excel centre.

The 32m (105ft) yacht marks Princess’ entry into the 100ft-plus category and the days preceding the show should prove to be exciting because it’ll be tricky getting her into the exhibition hall. Her 7.11m (23ft 4in) beam will barely fit through the loading doors.

While the standard layout for the 32M features four staterooms, the model debuting at the London show includes an optional five-cabin layout.

Princess is confident that its entry into the 100ft-plus market will be met with success. It will soon begin construction on the 40M — a 130-footer — which will become its flagship.

It has also just received UK government approval to renovate its construction site to add a new shed devoted solely to the superyacht sector.
