“Semi-custom” to some people seems restrictive, but that isn’t the case at Princess Yachts, especially where KOHUBA is concerned. Hull number one of the Princess 30M series, the 100-footer has her own hull design, despite replacing an earlier, close-in-size series, the 32M. She also has strikingly different design details you wouldn’t expect to find on a semi-custom craft.

First, and best, example: the motorcycle showroom of sorts, aft on the upper deck. (It’s not in the images here, so check out the link in the previous sentence to see it.) The owner of KOHUBA proudly also owns a custom Lauge Jensen Viking bike, which he wanted to take along. There’s a glass and stainless steel display case custom-created by a supplier, with Princess’ input. A davit can lift the bike off and back onto the yacht. Integrated strip lighting draws more attention to the display come nighttime.

While the owner largely kept the original design proposed by Princess’ in-house team, there are some departures. The owner wanted Scandinavian influences and an overall more macho ambiance than most yachts reflect. He selected dark-stained wenge soles and darker fabric tones in several areas, offset with lighter colors and splashes of blue. He further requested mixing in different stonework. While the high-gloss walnut wood paneling and five-stateroom total stayed the same as suggested, the owner of KOHUBA still found a good way to make a departure.

The magnificent new Princess 30M KOHUBA will be on display at the Monaco Yacht Show 28th September – 1st October. Princess Yachts Monaco will be pleased to welcome you to their stand QE6, Quai Kennedy.
