2013 will see another incredible number of new boat launches from Princess, confirming the Plymouth boat builder really is leading the way when it comes to investing and delivering new and exciting models and the new Princess V48 is exactly that. British boat builder Fairline Yachts will launch a new Targa 48 Open this summer – with a substantial number of forward orders already received. Launching in Spring 2013, the new Princess 88 Motor Yacht epitomises everything that is Princess. The latest addition to the Sunseeker range of luxury motor yachts will be joined by the sporty new Portofino 40 and the 28 Metre Yacht, both made their German debuts alongside the stunning San Remo. Elegant, powerful and incredibly spacious the new Princess 82 Motor Yacht epitomises everything that is Princess from her sleek, dynamic exterior to her impeccably finished interior. The Sunseeker 80 Yacht boasts a completely new design incorporating the well proven engineering platform of the other yachts in the range but maximising the volume of her wide beam hull.
The tug, Federal Beaver was operated under the banner of the Federal Navigation and Trading Company Ltd. Federal Beaver left the Great Lakes for service at Port Cartier, Quebec, where the 182-gross ton, 29.14-metre long tug assisted ore carriers in and out of the loading dock. The vessel headed west in 1974 and was renamed Ocean Prince II by the Northland Navigation Co.
The former Fednav vessel was sold to Chinese ship breakers and arrived as deck cargo from Vancouver aboard the barge Straits Logger on May 15, 2012, for dismantling by the Tianma Ship Breaking Works.
Michael Heath-Caldwell M.Arch - HMS IllustriousFeb - March - April 1948 Diary  This is a secret document during Hostilities. Since the megayacht is a flybridge model, naturally the deck is mostly devoted to fun in the sun. With a beam of 18’10” (5.78 meters), the Princess 82 Motor Yacht is only about an inch wider than her predecessor. The dining area on the Princess 82 Motor Yacht is set up the way most megayachts of this size feature it. Below decks, the master stateroom is full beam, as you’d expect, and down an additional step.
Even though some American buyers may prefer driving themselves, the Princess 82 Motor Yacht has a crew cabin fully aft. Here’s the just-mentioned dinette (left), well suited to being a breakfast area for owner-operators or buyers who like chatting with the captain. The Princess V85S is a modest sized boat by Nice and Monte Carlo standards, but at 25.9m overall it makes a huge statement here. A useful share of that is outdoors, and five steps down offers more room on the hydraulic platform – you lower it before opening the garage that can house a jet ski and a tender.
Access forward is good along side decks sheathed with teak, as is every outdoor walking surface. Being outside is a lot of the point of boating, but the 85 sure makes a case for walking indoors.
There is a second driving station in the saloon space that gives much better than typical vision to the skipper.
The V-drive arrangement for the 16V 2000 MTU engines allows them to be installed right aft, leaving almost three quarters of the hull length for accommodation.
The midships master suite, with full use of the more than six metre beam, epitomizes sea going luxury; or any other kind of luxury, come to that. Between the main accommodation and the engine room are the single and twin crew bedrooms, with bathroom and galley. I would have needed several days to discover every feature of this boat, and without a guide book would still have missed a lot. This will be followed by a Targa 48 Gran Turismo, which will be available to customers in the latter part of 2013. Powerful, agile and gracefully elegant she has been designed for long range cruising and her deep-V hull utilises the very latest resin infusion technology and so her performance and seakeeping are both impeccable and efficient. At a size that owners may choose to operate themselves or with a crew, the design allows for a number of options. 16, 2009 - Smit Princess (ex Rivtow Princess, ex Federal Beaver) is going into a Howe Sound "waterfront" feature this month in Western Mariner Magazine. Lifetime Achievement Award Haar ontwerper, Gerard Dijkstra, oprichter van Dykstra Naval Architects, zal tijdens de show een Lifetime Achievement Award van de Nautiqe Hollands Glorie Awards in ontvangst nemen. However, she still has walk-around decks, and, in a layout change, the saloon and dining area are on one level.
There’s this forward stateroom, with an opening hatch overhead and additional opening ports to each side. It wouldn’t be surprising to see some families use the cabin as a kids’ area, a common occurrence for megayachts like this. It is in the same corporate group as Louis Vuitton, Moet and Chandon, and De Beers Diamonds, so it should know a thing or two about luxury.
The short description is spacious accommodation for eight plus three crew, and engines to move them around at 39 knots. The cockpit itself offers dining or lounging facilities, together with a magnificent wet bar and barbecue.
There is another sun bed on the foredeck, as well as a Portuguese balcony – a forward-facing spot with settee and table. Naturally every kind of power operated device is on hand, and individually controlled electronic entertainment including satellite TV abounds. The dash is home to a full set of Furuno electronics including 3-D sounder, and an impressive but logically arranged inventory of switches and controls. Four cabins, two doubles and two twins, each have en suite bathrooms – plus an abundance of TVs, wardrobes, mood lighting and so on.
The bed of course is king size, and the vanity is almost the same length; wardrobes are walk in, the bathroom is designed for two people to use at once. Bold aspirations,maybe? We at WSB have an opinion, so have taken a first look behind the claim before the P68 arrival at Southampton’s International Boat Show. It was used along the west coast in a tug-barge service between Kitimat and Prince Rupert, British Columbia. Hoewel Gerard Dijkstra zijn architecten bureau inmiddels grotendeels heeft overgedragen, is hij nog erg betrokken bij de ontwikkeling en het ontwerpen van zeiljachten.
If you stand close to them, you can tell that the bulkheads are essentially the hull sides. Lockers to each side lift to reveal the stowage extends the full length and width of the spot.

With all the engine packages, cruise speed and top end are reportedly in the low-30-knot range.
This is probably where most cooking would happen on family cruises; a spacious self-contained galley inside would be ideal for catered occasions. A dozen or more fit comfortably here, and naturally there is ample cool storage, ice production, seating and table area. In a nice mix of class and utility, the thruster levers control hydraulic rather than electric thrusters.
A breakfast table with a pair of easy chairs is at a window that is not only vast but has an opening section.
The P68 will arrive and claim to rewrite the rule book on fly-bridge luxury, space and performance.
The largest of these was the Federal Beaver, a 95 foot 1600 hp tug for Federal Terminals Ltd., which sailed from Owen Sound in the spring of 1962 towing a 50 foot suction dredge constructed for the Federal Dept. It became Smit Princess in 2008, and River Princess in 2011 when it was owned by the Seaspan Marine Corp. The goal of the Princess 82 Motor Yacht is to offer buyers, particularly first-time megayacht owners, more to enjoy.
Princess offers additional choices of oak, cherry, and an Italian oak called rovero, which has a medium tone. Princess says it increased the strength of the superstructure for the Princess 82 Motor Yacht, to the point where it could eliminate vertical stringers.
With a $20m-odd initial investment it is well and truly back with a dock stocked with mouth-watering offerings. Most of the cockpit is shaded by the flybridge, and the part that is not, including the sun bed aft, can be covered by the powered awning. A side door adjacent to the helm makes the skipper as quickly available on the foredeck as the concertina rear doors put him at the aft berthing position. Mr Vuitton excelled in here with the décor as did the tradesmen with the cabinet work and joinery. Judging from the inquiries at October’s Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, where the 82 Motor Yacht premiered, the builder is succeeding.
De eigenaar heeft de licht blauwe romp uitgekozen na een blik op een prachtige Hollandse lucht.
That’s why the sunpad on the Princess 82 Motor Yacht, by the arch, can be replaced with a hot tub. All cabinetry and most furnishings, including dedicated stowage for china, flatware, and crystal, are made in house.
The 82 does a nice job of bridging the gap from the 72 Motor Yacht to the 88 Motor Yacht, and in introducing yacht buyers—whether existing Princess clients or not—to the big-boat market. Aan dek zijn vele custom-made RVS details te vinden, en zelfs de hoogglans gelakte kuiptafel is op maat gemaakt om makkelijk in de ruime bakskisten opgeborgen te kunnen worden.Het interieur is erg licht en fris gehouden. Witte vlakken, mahonie houten kastjes en een ‘balkenplafond’ geven het geheel een modern klassieke uitstraling, de aankleding in vrolijke kleuren zorgt voor een huislijke sfeer. Devonshire.After and introduction to our “nurse” in the morning we were dismissed to look for our future divisional officers. De keuken is uiteraard van alle gemakken voorzien en in de salon staat een grote tafel in de zithoek.
Consisting of a circular brush made of wire and coir turned by an electric motor, the machine is operated by a pair of handles very much the same as an auto-scythe and cleans the deck up very quickly compared with the usual elbow grease methods in general use.
The Commander (Air) says its just another of the new-fangled gadgets which are tried out in the ship; he doesn’t think its much good.
Besides that he told us about trials in general and how the wardroom has to put up with these hordes of ?800 a year spivs who seem indispensable to aircraft trials if they are only screw turners.Lieutenant Wall paid the gunroom a visit in the evening. Of course most people agree that something should be done and that this is one way of doing it, perhaps the best way.
We had a talk on the Air Department of the ship and its organisation by the Commander (Air). Very soon he started talking solely about the trials themselves and what our future programme may include providing nothing very unusual happens before we have had our repairs completed.I had the afternoon watch with Lieutenant Grayson.
Someone thought he was trying to wrangle more hands to bring the ships company up to a more workable minimum.If the officers heads (?) were not on the dock there would have been very little to do indeed.
As it was these officers streamed back during the ‘dogs.’ I found it was very monotonous saying “Carry on” or words to that effect when about fifty petty officers went ashore at ten minutes to four just as the last notes of (carry on [correction – secure]) and coops(?) had died away.
At both watches for exercises the bugler made a very queer call which was apparently due to his instrument being blocked up, according to him.
The Quartermaster spent about a half hour explaining to us how the doctors discovered that his right kidney was not working and that he had a stone there which suddenly stopped growing. Most of the Wardroom was in the rounds party as it was a mess decks inspection and the route was not definitely fixed before hand.Read a very interesting story in Saturday Evening news called “This is my Sa” by Clarence Budlington Kelland.
All other American serials seemed rather dull, anyway I never seemed to be able to read them through without skipping large and boring pages.The Government today announces that the prices of coal, electricity and gas will be pegged, as all other commodities, in order to check, or to attempt to check, the ever spiralling cost of living.
Hagannah announces that its forces will in future resist arrest by British forces, following an incident in which four Jews were killed after being set free in an Arab stronghold form an army lorry, and killed a few minutes later by armed Arabs. The congregation in the Chapel this morning was very small indeed, consisting entirely of officers. It is not at all surprising that clergy these days are very dispirited.Part of the dockyard power supply to the ship was cut off this evening and half the ship put in darkness. A lead coming aboard over the Starboard side onto the Lower Gallery deck overheated causing the rubber insulation to melt.
That mucked up my fire main chasing programme, however I had decided that the only way to make a plan was to draw a large seals layout of each deck first, then put in the main and branches later. Spent at least two hours searching for pipes at the expense of a layer of oil and filth all over my hands and on my reefer.Reached the HMS Boxer by jeep just before tea.
After tea we walked round the ship and paid a visit to the bridge where we were struck by its size and openness. There we also noticed that the evening was very cold, so we decided unanimously to walk back to Illustrious and muster all our warm clothing.There are three Sub-Lieutenants onboard. To get the stern out we went ahead on a back spring then, when clear astern and round to Port.
As soon as we were clear of the harbour we started directing planes from Ford and Lea-on-Solent. It had been decided that a ship,which could direct large numbers of planes onto shore targets and enemy planes, should be built for fighting in the Pacific.

This specialised ship, a floating Fighter and Bomber Direction Unit, was to be used within about ten miles of Japanese islands to direct planes from aircraft carriers which would be about 70 miles off shore in order to be less accessible to land based planes. Boxer was passing through the Mediterranean when Japan capitulated, on her way to the Pacific. The weather became rowdier still as we steamed up to the Needles to enter the West Solent and anchor off Yarmouth.
Nigeria is to be sent to the Falkland Islands where the Argentinos and Chileans are busy setting up a military base in the Falkland Island Dependencies. Possibly it is Peron’s idea to direct his countrymen’s thoughts from internal affairs to something more dramatic. Nigeria will alter the situation when she arrives mainly because she is so heavily outnumbered and also because the distances over which the other ships would have to be send, are so great. The Argentine papers have been very insolent about the whole thing, the trouble is that they know or are pretty certain that we shall not be able to do anything decisive. We are all very glad we went back to the HMS Illustrious on Monday evening to take some more sweaters, scarves, gloves etc.
Today we were directing Barracudas and an Anson, which every now and again come in on a torpedo or bombing run at us. As we entered the Solent past Nab Tower we passed the black funnelled Dutch liner Wilhelm Huys.When being lowered, shortly after we had anchored, the Starboard Motor Cutter was nearly wrecked.
The sea was very rough, there being a high short swell, and when the boat was nearly lowered to the water, instead of slipping it was pitched up on a creast of a wave and flung down again onto the falls. Started to snow in the morning and the wind, as usual, was Easterly and even colder than before.
The ship apparently handles very well.A jeep was supposed to be at the jetty to bring us back at 1630.
Ministers are accused left, right and centre of making self-contradictory statements about the various nationalised parts of our economy. The Sunday Chronicle has a long article on the Falkland Islands incident headed “The Lions Tail,” with the Lion in rather an awkward position at present.
Illustrious .Spent the whole day going in and out of compartments on the Main Deck looking for the fire main pipes. A rumour was started that the British had caused the outrage, and the Jewish crowds became very hostile to our men helping in the rescue work so that after a short time all British police and troops were withdrawn. In the Dogs it was returned alongside by a tug after going aground and getting stuck just off the pontoon at dead low tide.An escort was sent off to London [correction – to catch] by 1920 train to collect two deserters picked up by the Naval Section of Scotland Yard.
The leave for the ship’s Company is from 19th March – 12th April for the watches in succession. At Commanders requestmen(?) this morning six men were granted afternoon leave to watch the Navy-Civil Services football match.
Sheffield has been ordered to Belize from Cartagena, Columbia where she was on her spring cruise.
Devonshire was ordered away because of reports that British Honduras was about to be invaded.
Just before lunch an airman rating was brought up before the Officer of the Watch on a charge of disobeying his superior officer, namely by refusing to sweep out his mess when ordered to by his leading hand. Illustrious - Lectures on Divisional Matters and another lecture on Operation of Carriers were given by Lieutenant Commander Hamer and Lieutenant Turnbull.
The latter’s lecture was mainly about carrier warfare in the Pacific and of course the accent was on flying, as Lieutenant Turnbull is a pilot.In the evening Few, Lemon and myself went ashore mainly to have our hair cut. The first barber’s shop was shut, and later when we came back after walking along the Southsea front we passed another shop which had also closed. Today we had a more interesting time than usual.After Stand Easy a party of officers from all the services came onboard for an outing in their Photographic Interpretation course. Illustrious was docked.Owing to the mist and cloud at the time of sunset we were able to see sunspots on the face of the sun through our telescopes. Illustrious - Lieutenant Commander Hamer gave us a very interesting lecture on the Middle East.
He explained the reason why it was so important to England and the Empire was because it was on our main East-West sea route, besides being a road between North and South. Jews will probably pour into Palestine, the Jewish part of which would soon be overpopulated, and then the immigrants would have no other course to take than to attempt to beat back the arabs by force of arms.
The Arabs have the advantage in desert warfare, as they know their country and have all the Moslem countries from which they can expect to receive modern arms and volunteers, to help in the cause. The Jews may have a well trained and organised army but all their arms are supplied from abroad. The help that is given by the American Government depends on the political parties in power and whether elections are in the offing, in which case the candidates in the Government in power will pander to the Jewish electorate.
At present, however, the Americans can either please the Jews and endanger their oil pipe lines across Arabia, or dissatisfy their Jewish electorate but safeguard their oil, or, as they are doing now, make vague and noncommittal statements about their policy which generally annoys all the parties concerned.Trouble in our colonies has now spread to the Gold Coast where riots have broken out in Accra. There, a native party, demanding self government for the colony, has incited ex-servicemen to agitate for better living conditions. After a short visit at Salisbury I caught the Bath train which took me to my home town, Warminster. After waiting at the station for a car a little while the mist started to come down reducing visibility to about two yards. Eventually I reached home after a hair raising drive, mostly on the pavement at the right side of the road. Saturday 6th March 1948Warminster - Another very fine day with clear sky and hot sun. Both sides seem to be organising themselves for the time when British forces leave the country, in the mean time the position of our soldiers and police in Palestine becomes more insecure every day. Sunday 7th March 1948Warminster – The King and Queen and Princess Margaret are to visit Australia and New Zealand in 1949.
The Navy is not as strong as it should be, and the Government has not exaggerated its state. Illustrious - School in the morning and Organisation, a lecture by the Commander in the afternoon. After a second long walk, it seemed very long carrying a heavy grip, we arrived at Hornet.Before Stand-Easy we were shown round the establishment, Gun Boat Yard, the two German E-boats there and several captured enemy craft, including one with a hydrophane attachment and an Italian explosive motorboat. 2012, a Long boat, called Dog boats by the officers on them.As we went past the forts outside the harbour in the Solent we saw an E-boat leave the harbour behind us. We were developing full speed, but very soon we were overtaken by the other boat which, we were informed afterwards, was only developing ? power.
