Recently rolled-out at BAR Technologies’ headquarters at the Land Rover BAR America's Cup Portsmouth base, with a vibrant camouflage hull wrap, with the yard only confirming that its length is mid-30ft (10.6 metres).

Princess Yachts claimed that the new project - 'will establish a whole new class of yacht.'

While specific information on the boat isn’t yet available, it was spotted in Portsmouth in ‘dazzle camouflage’ – an eye-catching pattern designed to confuse the eye and disguise the yachts features.

BAR Technologies was set up to share design knowledge, technical skills and resources built up through Land Rover BAR’s involvement in the America’s Cup.
