The South Quay Princess is a facility unique to the project that symbolised the pinnacle of lakeside living, said Sunway Holdings Bhd chairman Tan Sri Dr Jeffrey Cheah before the launch of the yacht at the development's lakeside promenade.
"A little more than three and a half decades ago, we stood here, at the same spot, looking at a derelict tin-mining hole and promising ourselves that we will bring life to the land. And here we are today, crowning this lake with our very own Princess," he said in his speech prior to the launch.
The yacht will be available for residents to rent for private functions.
Sunway South Quay, built on the final tract of land in the sprawling 800-acre Bandar Sunway, comprises three phases, namely the Bayrocks Garden Waterfront Villas, A'Marine Luxury Condominium and Nautica Lake Suites.
Bayrocks contains 77 units of two-storey and two-and-a-half-storey luxury bungalows, while A'Marine comprises 242 units. Nautica was completely acquired by a South Korean corporation while Bayrocks and A'Marine are 70% sold.
The project also comes with facilities such as the aforesaid lakeside promenade, various food and beverage outlets, boutique retail outlets and business suites.
Sunway South Quay is also close to facilities such as the Sunway Resort Hotel & Spa, Sunway Lagoon, Sunway Pyramid, Monash University, Sunway University, Sunway International School and Sunway Medical Centre.
It is also connected via the New Pantai Expressway (NPE), the Shah Alam Expressway (KESAS), Lebuhraya Damansara Puchong (LDP), New Klang Valley Expressway (NKVE), Federal Highway and Elite Highway.
A new elevated highway linkage connecting the NPE and the KESAS has been proposed.
