General Details


Soleo is a very well kept Princess V78.  Second owner has a larger boat in mind and is looking see her move to another loving owner.  Extremely well outfitted and maintained, she is a spectacular riding boat with almost 40 knot speed from her C32 Acert CAT's.

Entertainment space throughout the yacht both on deck and in the airy, open saloon.  Warm teak decks; satin walnut interior with tasteful appointments throughout.  Large saloon with dining for eight forward.  Extra large full beam master aft with ensuite head. Three additional staterooms with 2 ensuite heads. Separate crew quarters for two with ensuite head gives extended cruising comfort.

Soleo exudes class and refinement in her lines, spaces, and build.  She will look as good behind your house as she does behind her current owner's.

With a choice of powerful engine options to complement her sleek profile and an opulent yet contemporary interior, the Princess V78 is built to excite the senses. She delivers the ultimate blend of style and V Class performance and is one of the most dynamically capable models Princess has ever conceived.

With raised bulwarks and a deep-V hull made using the latest resin infusion technology to reduce weight and improve efficiency, the V78 has been honed for long-range cruising. Her high-speed capabilities ensure an intoxicating blend of excitement and precision control, placing the most exclusive locations within easy reach.

On deck, an enormous cockpit provides an uncluttered environment for flexible entertaining and incorporates a fully equipped wetbar and large seating area. The garage is centrally located beneath the generous sunpad and can accommodate a 4m tender, while a hydraulically operated raise/lower platform is fitted as standard for stowage of an additional tender or wetbike.

The main deck features an expansive saloon with lowlevel furniture and contemporary fittings, as well as the latest electronics and entertainment systems. The forward dining area seats eight in comfort and the helm position has been thoroughly resolved for optimum visibility and clear, safe sightlines. The large opening roof allows the feeling of true open boating with the flexibility to provide shade at the touch of a button while sliding glass doors and an electric drop window can be opened to transform the saloon and cockpit into one magnificent entertaining space.

Stylish lower accommodations achieve new levels of space and light, with a unique reversed layout in the master suite providing the ultimate feeling of exclusivity. The owner enjoys a large en-suite bathroom with twin sinks and an exceptionally spacious shower, with a separate walk-in wardrobe situated to the port side. Guests are treated to similar levels of luxury in a VIP stateroom forward and two twin berth cabins forward of the galley, with the option of fitting out the starboard cabin as a lower dinette for added flexibility.

The crew enjoy complete separation from the guest accommodation in a twin cabin located aft of the engine room with an innovative transom door to allow discrete access away from the main guest areas. Whether unwinding below deck or appreciating the tranquillity of a remote mooring, the Princess V78 provides a fabulous blend of comfort and refined performance for enjoying the best that cruising has to offer.
