Indian Princess is possibly one of the most recognisable
and well known superyachts from the late 1980’s.
Her Jon Bannenberg design and styling give her a unique
yet aesthetically appealing profile that was substantially
improved upon during her major refit and lengthening in
1996/97 at the DML shipyard, Plymouth, England.
She has been extensively renovated and updated in 2004 by
her new Owners to enhance her excellent reputation and loyal
following within the charter market in recent years.
The recent refit included the complete replacement of carpets
and soft furnishings. The colour scheme is rich and fresh
and provides a vibrant complement to her light wood interior.
The stunning aft deck lounge area on the upper deck is accessed
via a grand central staircase from the main deck level.
Circular seating with tables (port & stbd), a large
alfresco circular dining table with Summit teak seating
for up to 12 and a full wet bar create an excellent venue
for entertaining. The focal point of this saloon is the
formal wet bar to port, with bar stools and the antique
grand piano to starboard. Forward and split level is the
observation / games saloon with its four distinct seating
areas, Plasma TV, PS2 games tables and 180 degree panoramic
Following her 10ft (3m) extension in 1997, the main deck
aft not only acts as the yacht’s main entrance and reception

this level. The foredeck has its own hydraulic crane for
