Princess R35 - Exterior running (Electric Blue)

Princess Yachts R-Class 35

Princess Yachts announces their new R-Class 35 as R/Evolution.

Princess Yachts has a new boat class under development. The carbon fiber boat was developed together with BAR Technologies and the Italian design studio Pininfarina. The prototype was wrapped in a new version of Dazzle Camouflage, designed by Katie Sheppard of the Plymouth College of Art.

The R35 comes with an Active Foil System (AFS) for lower drag and more stability. Two all-aluminum V8 petrol engines power the boat up to 50 knots.

Alongside the camouflaged prototype and the renderings in Electric Blue, the yard came up with renderings in different color schemes.


The cabin’s interior comes with a U-shape seating with a table that can be turned into a double bed. A galley with sink, drawers and some storage space. Furthermore, a 32-inch TV connected to a Naim audio system and a bow camera. Also, a wet-room with shower and lavatory is onboard.

Princess Yachts offer three different color schemes for the R35

Antony Sheriff, Executive Chairman of Princess Yachts says:

“We pride ourselves on creating yachts of exceptional design and quality. Now, working together with BAR Technologies we are thrilled to be working on a brand-new fully carbon fiber 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.”

The yacht will be presented at the Cannes Yachting Festival.

Naval Architect Mark Mills of Mills Design was appointed for the first time for a Wally project and comments:

“Tango is our largest project to date and also we believe the most innovative, the most stylish, and certainly one of the most satisfying to develop in collaboration with the client, Wally, Pininfarina, and Persico Marine. We owe our involvement to the vision of Luca Bassani who suggested us to bring a fresh mindset to the Wallycento design question. 

We developed a radical proposal combining dramatic deck geometry with a novel interior layout for the most efficient result within the Wallycento box-rule, integrated with the structure to a level not yet seen in a yacht of this size. That proposal very quickly became Tango, after huge amounts of detail development, but very little deviation from the original vision for a sleek, light, and exciting sailing machine.”

Luca Bassani, Founder and President of Wally adds:

“A relevant  Tango’s technical attribute is to have the immersed volume of the hull more forward than the previous Wallycentos, and the aft lines are cleaner and more stretched: an hydrodynamic option that I much appreciate. Mark’s initial idea to have a displacement close to the minimum required by the box-rule, combined with the maximum sail plan allowed, would bring some advantages in the typical lights airs of the Mediterranean conditions.”

Wally is known for new ways, so Tango got the main salon at the aft area. Engine room and service area are placed amidships, guests can find their places forward. The interior was designed by Pininfarina.

Tangos’ cruising comforts equal those of the previous Wallycentos whilst her different interior layout further concentrates the weights over the boat center of gravity.”

Paolo Pininfarina says:

“The interior design of this Wallycento challenged our team to achieve the perfect balance of performance and comfort. Thanks to the selection of the materials and the innovative solutions of the interior decoration delivering both function and aesthetics,  we generated a true thoroughbred of the sea, ultra-light, and super performing, perfectly suitable for cruising as well as for racing. We are very proud of this accomplishment further confirming the excellence of our nautical division.”

“Tango turned out exactly how we envisaged her when we started developing the project: super sleek lines and aggressive overall appeal conveying her high-performance DNA.” proudly says Luca Bassani “Additionally, our form-reflects-function approach is epitomised in Tango’s sheer flush deck in the like of  the iconic Esense: besides enhancing the purity of the design,  it would facilitate the manoeuvres while racing.  We look forward to the sea-trials and test the predicted superior performance of our new superyacht.”

Aurea Rossinavi Pininfarina Yacht

AUREA - 70m by Rossinavi and Pininfarina

Pininfarina and Rossinavi present the 70m Aurea project.

Aurea features an eye-catching wave-shaped superstructure with large open spaces forward and on the sundeck that serves also as a helicopter landing area. With a focus on owners’ and guest’s lifestyle, the yacht concept has two pools and a large beach club area surrounded by the smooth lines by Pininfarina. Another top feature is the diesel-electric propulsion positioned amidships.

The main deck is the home of the guest cabins with balcony and a folding bulwark to extend the outdoor spaces.

“The clever management of full and empty volumes harmoniously connected by elegant and sinuous shapes allows to create both in the interior spaces and in the areas of the bridges some corners of great fascination and particularly suggestive views, offering new and unexpected opportunities to employ and enjoy the spaces and maximizing the thrill of sailing and life on board. At the level of the owner’s deck, for example, terraces protected appropriately by front windows open at the center of the ship, with an appeal to the theme of the bow-window, thus giving a direct view to the bow.”
