Among the luxury entries, Boat Lagoon Yachting will join the show with a line-up of no fewer than six models, including four breathtaking Princesses of the seas by Princess Yachts alongside the powerful Prestige 500 and thrilling-to-drive Jeanneau Velasco 43F. Thus Princess Yachts and Boat Lagoon Yachting will complete the line-up on Dock E at the award-winning Royal Phuket Marina.

Leading the line-up is the brand new model, first in Asia, Princess 49. She will celebrate her first official Asia premiere at the PIMEX 2017 Boat Show at the Royal Phuket Marina. The newly launched Princess 49 cleverly combines high performance, economical seakeeping, manoeuvrability and the ease of handling associated with the very latest IPS pod drive system. This is the very first Princess flybridge with IPS drive.

Another exclusive highlight in the show is the Princess 75 Motor Yacht. Awarded the Best Production Motor Yacht (15m to 24m) by the Asia Boating Awards 2016, Princess 75MY is said to be the epitome of luxury, off the charts both in style and substance. This 80ft boat not only welcomes guests with plenty of space but also promises comfortable cruising at speeds of up to 36 knots. A perfect combination of agile cruising and open-plan elegance, the Princess 75 is a must-see at the show.

Among the highlights there will be the Princess V39, known for its ultra-responsive handling and thrilling acceleration, especially when the sunroof is open, creating over five square metres of open space. When entertaining, the spacious and sociable cockpit enjoys a beautiful teak table and well-equipped wet bar. Powered by twin Volvo D6-330 DP (2 x 330mhp) engines, this 42-foot boat can surge up to 37-39 knots.

Completing the Princess line-up is the Princess 54. The Princess 54 has an outstanding sea keeping character. The stylish main saloon is bright and airy with large wrap-round windows, creating an exceptional feeling of space. Hi-Fi Bose entertainment systems, TVs, DVD, iPod docking, ice maker, wet bar and a BBQ on the flybridge are all available to you for great entertaining.

The Boat Lagoon Yachting’s flybridge line-up will be complete with the Prestige 500, a boat that has won more awards than any other 50-footer in the world. Her balanced forms and overall expression affirm power and security, while the flybridge of this boat is the designer’s pride with a unique size for a motor yacht of 50ft.

Last but not least is Jeanneau’s beautiful Velasco 43F. Inspired by larger yachts, the VELASCO 43F makes a strong personal statement on the exterior, paired with a contemporary style on the interior. Designed for smooth, safe cruising at high speeds, the highly-tapered hull of the VELASCO 43F is comfortable and efficient in all cruising conditions. Innovative and elegant, powerful and reassuring, the VELASCO 43F unveils an all-new approach to the motor yacht, one conceptualized entirely for family cruising.
