Get up close and personal with the Princess 60 Flybridge and you might feel as if you’re in a “James Bond” movie.

Her graceful and elegant lines, along with a clever blending of window panels and sheerlines, give this flybridge motoryacht the look of a spy-themed megayacht. That’s what the Princess 60 flybridge aims to deliver: megayacht feel and performance in a 60-foot package.

Megayacht features start aft, where the hydraulic swim platform transforms into your own personal teak island. A couple of steps up leads to the roomy aft cockpit, smothered in luxurious teak decking that surrounds a relaxing, U-shaped lounge with teak table. It’s the perfect place for outdoor entertaining.  

Steps up from the aft cockpit is the immense flybridge area. A huge, cushy C-shaped lounge for eight or more is set around a sturdy teak table that dominates the starboard aft quarter. Just forward is a rather large U-shaped companion lounge across from the portside helm, offering a commanding view of the sea ahead.  

Standard power on the Princess 60 Flybridge is a pair of Volvo Penta D13 800-hp diesel inboards, though you can upgrade to twin D13 900-hp diesels as an option. The D13 800s will net a top speed between 31 to 33 knots, while the 900-hp twins bump those figures up to between 33 and 35 knots.

Below, huge panels of glass create one of the most open and airy main salons I’ve ever encountered. These panels illuminate a clever layout that includes a galley with an adjacent U-shaped dinette, as well as a living room-style seating area aft with plenty of room for relaxing and entertaining. The lower helm station is set forward to starboard.

The three staterooms are accessed via a graceful stairway that leads down from the main salon to a common landing area. The huge mid-cabin master stateroom is aft, while the VIP stateroom is situated in the bow. A smaller guest stateroom with twin berths is situated just to starboard of the staircase landing. Each stateroom has its own enclosed shower/head.

Summing up the Princess 60 Flybridge, Ron Silvia, VP of sales and Princess brand manager for Jefferson Beach Yacht Sales (jbys.com; 866-490-5297) says: “The large salon with extensive glazing creates an enormous sense of space on-board. It’s an incredible sea boat, especially as equipped with a Seakeeper Gyro, the latest in stabilizing technology.”
