Princess 85
Cape Town

Fractional Yacht Ownership in South Africa

The Victoria and Alfred waterfront is described as Africa’s most celebrated playground.

Being as far south as we in Europe is north of the equator it has the exact opposite seasons and weather to those in northern Europe, making Cape Town the perfect winter boating destination.

One can power cruise in the Langebaan Lagoon, or anywhere between False Bay and the wonderful Clifton Beach.
Marine life is in absolute abundance with whale watching and shark dives a very realistic yet breathtaking experience.

Princess 85 Syndicate Information

This syndicator is a professional marine business and distributor for leading maritime brands.

They have a number of yachts in operation with most being generally fully subscribed, however every now and then a share becomes available in an established syndicate.

This stunning yacht is moored in the world famous Victoria & Albert Waterfront Marina, right in the centre of the action. She really stands out among her smaller sister-ships and makes an ideal fractional proposition for both corporate and for leisure use. It’s also possible to acquire a relatively small share making it very affordable in relation to the magnitude of such a yacht ownership proposition.

When launched, the Princess 25m was the flagship of the Princess fleet and this model remained so for many years thereafter. This magnificent vessel combines style, presence and exhilarating performance. She is effortlessly capable of high-speed, long-distance cruising. The flybridge takes on-board al fresco living to an entirely new level, while the full-width saloon and dining area provide a private environment for gracious entertaining.For both performance and comfort, the Princess 25M is in a class of her own.

She boasts four very luxurious en-suite cabins, all independently air-conditioned. She can comfortably accommodate eight guests. Her rosewood and cherry finishes combined with the luxurious soft furnishings, create an atmosphere of timeless elegance and sumptuous  comfort. Her wide aft deck offers a great alfresco environment with spacious dining for eight. Her large swim platform provides easy access to the sea and her sun beds adorn the very spacious fly bridge and large foredeck.
