The Princess Class Yacht, known as the Hime-Class Yacht in Yamatai, is a small, luxurious starship meant for interstellar travel. While not the fastest or the most luxurious Yacht, its relatively low price puts it in the hands of more people, making it readily accessible to even middle-class people.
Tired of designing only military or paramilitary ships, Origin Industries Decided it was time to make another foray into the main civilian market, after the moderate success of the Courier-class. This time, the venture was aimed at middle to upper-class people, rather than working-class spacers, in the form of a luxury yacht. Designed with more flowing lines than many other Origin vessels, the Princess-class is an elegant addition to Origin's product line.
The Princess is a long, narrow teardrop shape, with the outline broken up at the rear by a cluster of engines and docking booms to either side. Roughly even with the docking booms is the bridge area, which is shaped somewhat like a bubble rising out of the hull and receding into the engine nacelles. On each of the docking booms is the barrel of an Ion cannon, both of which are fixed forward.
Aerin Tatst, tired of having to deal with the issues of getting a ship to handle the stresses of military-grade hardware and yet still remain low-cost and economically feasible, decided to design something comparatively simple, and yet at the same time elegant and luxurious. Began as a sketch on a pad of paper, the Princess-class eventually was transferred onto a computer, and from there design work took off, resulting in a Yacht which could hopefully control the market by being low-cost, easy to maintain, and in ready supply.
Crew: 3 operators are recommended, only one is required. Maximum Capacity: There are accommodations for 10 people. About 200 people can fit aboard in an emergency, but the ship would be extremely cramped.
Length: 100 meters (328 feet) Width: 50 meters (164 feet) Height: 25 meters (82 feet) Decks: 4 (4 meters each)
Continuum Distortion Drive: 14,200c Hyperspace Fold Drive: .5ly/min Sublight Engines: .42c Range: 1 year of constant travel Lifespan: indefinite, with proper maintenance Refit Cycle: yearly
See Damage Rating (Version 3) for an explanation of the damage system.
As an unarmored civilian craft, the Princess Class Yacht takes damage at one tier worse than its rating.

The princess-class is constructed of a Durandium Alloy frame with a thin Durandium hull, providing practically zero protection against military weapons, but keeps the ship's mass very low.
On either side of the Princess is a special Airlock/Shuttle bay/ Docking boom, which allows the ship to dock with up to two other vessels, as well as load small craft and vehicles. These booms are capable of lowering ramps to the ground when landed.
The Princess Class is administrated by a Destiny AI "Knight" Suite, which is an advanced quantum computer and sensor system, integrated with the ships' electronics.
Environmental recycling system The ERS is just a simple yet effective filtration system, which filters water and air, purifying it so it may be reused. Filters must be replaced after 15 months of continuous operation.
AC system A simple climate control system, it allows for rooms to be kept at a specific temperature. Controls are located in each room.
Unidirectional Gravitational Plating: Plating on the roof emits a pseudo-gravitational field that is attracted to the plates on the floor pushing everything on the ship 'down'. This creates the false sense of gravity that permeates the ship.
FTL Propulsion:Continuum Distortion Drive Hyperspace Fold Drive: This ship has a basic Fold Drive, for use in Inter-stellar travel. The fold bubble is incapable of “towing” anything larger than a shuttle along with the ship. STL Propulsion: The Princess uses a grouping of high-performance Ion thrusters for STL propulsion. These particular thrusters have very high acceleration and top speed, but are energy hogs. Travelling at full speed for extended periods of time can deplete the ship's fuel reserves.
The Princess uses a fusion reactor, which uses heavy water (water with an extra Hydrogen atom) as its fuel. Running on normal power, the Princess carries enough fuel for one year of regular activity.
The ship uses a fairly simple shielding system to protect the ship and its inhabitants from the harsh elements of space, such as radiation and debris. This is the default shielding for the ship, and is usually turned on all the time.
