Plymouth, UK yard, Princess Yachts, has announced that it is working Portsmouth based BAR Technologies on a joint carbon fibre project which has been billed as an entirely new class of yacht.
The project is shrouded in secrecy to prevent any details being released before its official unveiling. Currently the only known fact is 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.
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 programme.
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.”
