DESCRIPTION & DETAILS
Alexander Marine Australia are pleased to present the 2009 Princess V65 Motor Yacht 'G5' to the market as central agents.
Princess's preferred designer Bernard Olesinski penned the hull, which features propeller tunnels for shallow shaft angles and efficiency. The boat runs smoothly thanks to her fine entry and aggressive chines and is well suited to her efficient MAN 1100hp V10 diesel power plants. Savvy boat buyers understand what this acclaimed model offers - the fusion of single-level indoor/outdoor entertaining decks, the joy of an opening electric sunroof, and the convenience of an aft tender garage - all of which are perfectly suited for our Australian waterways be that entertaining on the harbour or coastal cruising.
Boarding the vessel is made easy by stepping onto her wide teak-laid hi/lo swim platform. All exterior teak decking has recently been treated with the popular Semco coating and is beautifully presented. Stairs up to the cockpit are on the centreline of the vessel. The teak-laid cockpit features a generously sized sun lounge to port, and to starboard, she features a U-shaped dinette with a folding teak table that can cater for a crowd of eight to ten guests with the addition of some folding chairs. The cockpit amenities centre, which is positioned to port against the saloon bulkhead, is complete with food-prep space, bbq, sink, garbage bin, icemaker and drawer fridge.
A removable shade awning can be quickly installed for sun protection over the cockpit. As you move into the saloon, which is separated from the cockpit via sliding glass doors, you will observe her all-weather setting for eight around a satin finish timber dining table to starboard.
Over on the portside the saloon layout features a two-person built-in club lounge, behind which a pop-up flat-screen television emerges from the cabinet at the press of a button. To ensure you are never too far from a beverage bar fridge and cocktail cabinet complete with glass storage is also installed to port. Her retractable sunroof provides enormous light and fresh air in the saloon when required to the extent that you're virtually outdoors, or you may opt to close the sunroof and crank up the air-conditioning, and then enjoy a comfortable all-weather living/dining cocoon with amazing views!
Her delightful saloon interior finishes include practical oiled teak flooring, a central carpet inlay, light satin timber joinery, and cream-coloured leather lounges. Mood lighting adds to the sophistication. The front of the salon features portside passenger seating which is delightfully inclusive, with a u-shaped lounge around a small fixed table. Three or four people could sit here and converse with the skipper while reeling in some ocean miles. The owner or copilot/navigator gets to sit alongside the skipper on a matching individual leather helm seat.
For ease of access out on the side deck the skipper will love the adjacent pantograph helm door out onto the Starboard side deck. 'G5' features a "sporty" helm station complete with Rexroth electronic controls offering go-slow, synchro and cruise modes. This area is complete with late-model touch screen Raymarine electronics. The analog engine gauges however give the boat a timeless feel. Skippers will appreciate everything is at their fingertips, while passengers will feel part of the action also. Importantly there are no steps or mezzanine levels from the windscreen to the cockpit - just perfect for entertaining.
Centreline steps lead down from adjacent the helm to the lower deck accommodation and galley. The U-shaped chef's galley features hardwearing timber flooring and gloss black Avonite countertops. Her galley appliances include a four-burner ceramic cooktop, rangehood, convection microwave, domestic-sized upright fridge/freezer, dishwasher, twin sinks and concealed garbage bin.
The accommodation provides three very generous cabins and three heads, the piece de resistance, a full-width owner's cabin featuring sizable oval-shaped picture ports that can be opened for fresh air. Indeed throughout the lower accommodation and galley, lots of opening portlights permit light, natural ventilation and connectivity with the outside world. Starting in the bow a lucky few will get to enjoy the VIP guest cabin. It has an expectantly plush double island berth, a regal atmosphere derived from designer reading lamps and stainless steel air-con vents, with jewellery and makeup areas. Opening portlights and a hatch can be called on for fresh air and light. The ensuite has a separate shower stall, rectangular washbasin, and Grohe tapware. Amidships is the day head/ensuite (again with a separate shower stall) serving the third cabin which consists of over and under adult length bunk beds. The two other cabins pale in comparison when compared with the full-width stateroom amidships! The king-sized bed on the centreline is flanked by a two-seater settee, leather-topped dresser or workstation, with a walk-in wardrobe and a bulkhead mounted built-in television. The spacious ensuite to starboard naturally has a separate shower and VacuFlush toilet. Large rectangular picture windows, several of which open as mentioned prior, provide wonderful views out of the master cabin. Back aft 'G5' is equipped with crew quarters incorporating a single berth and a dedicated crew head and shower.
Moving forward from the crew quarters via a watertight door you enter the walk-in all-white engine space that welcomes you with a centre checker-plate walkway and full headroom. Access to the lazarette is through a deck hatch and reveals storage space for the fenders and more, plus access to the steering gear. Adjacent to Starboard, the transom garage accommodates the Seadoo Trixx Jetski. 'G5' also carry's a centre console RIB on her hi/lo swim platform for excursions ashore. 'G5' has been captain maintained, and is presented fleshly polished with considerable recent service history.
