Enjoy a first-hand account of the Princess Y78 from seasoned boating enthusiast, Mr Frederic Patten. He shares his passion for boating, interesting insights, and his experience working with Boat Lagoon Yachting.
Mr Patten’s passion for boating developed when he was just a child. He has been boating with his family since he was only two years old. As an adult, Patten continues to enjoy the boating lifestyle and has owned a number of yachts over the past 50 years.
However, for the past 15 years, he has chosen to exclusively purchase Princess Yachts from Boat Lagoon Yachting. Patten said, ‘It is always exciting to own a boat, and it makes financial sense to me to own a boat. Over the past 15 years, I’ve developed a great relationship with Vrit and Boat Lagoon Yachting, and he always manages to secure a good deal for me.’
An intrepid boat enthusiast, Mr Patten enjoys the challenge of driving the boat himself. Taking to the seas and tackling the challenging weather conditions is all part of the experience. Speaking about his captaining experience, he commented:
‘It is definitely a challenge every time I run the boat myself as a captain alongside another crew. Every cruising experience is unique as you face different weather conditions and navigational challenges. However, the convenience of having a boat is unmatched, as you are technically bringing your own luxury apartment wherever you go and can stop anywhere you like, with no queues or crowds. There’s no need to worry about flights or hotel bookings. Moreover, you have the luxury and flexibility to choose any destination.’
Princess Yachts are known for their excellent craftsmanship and innovative designs that incorporate performance efficiency, comfort, and style. Mr Patten has found a Princess Yacht model that is the perfect boat for him, the Y78.
‘Eighty feet is a great size for a boat. Though I love the layout of the old Princess 62 and Princess 72 models, the new Princess Y78 is the next evolution of the boat with excellent quality. Plus, the cabins are all en suite, which is ideal for me. The best part is that the helm has great visibility, and it is the perfect size to get into the marina. With a great design, it isn’t too big when it is in the marina either.’
When we asked why Mr Patten has been such a strong supporter of Princess Yachts for the past 15 years, he explained that he was won over by their boats’ smooth handling and high quality standards. He added that the shipyard never fails to surprise him with new engineering improvements and design innovations for each new model produced.
Mr Patten has enjoyed many special moments on board his Princess Y78 yacht. Since purchasing it in December 2021, he has celebrated three special occasions on board, including his birthday, Christmas, and New Year.
Boating trips are always memorable for Mr. Patten, so he makes an effort to spend notable holidays on the ocean. His December celebrations began with a trip from Singapore to Naka Island in Thailand, with a stopover on Lipe Island for Christmas. In Thailand, Mr. Patten was welcomed by the Boat Lagoon Yachting family, who made a special food delivery to his yacht during his quarantine.
