If a social register existed for luxury cruising yachts, the Princess brand would be a mainstay on the list. Over the years, this English builder has brought many elegantly styled models to market, each marked by an impeccable build quality. In addition to its globally popular flybridge motor yacht range (sized from 42 to 98 feet), Princess offers V-Class sport yachts (39 to 85 feet) designed for performance cruising. More recently, the builder entered the superyacht market with the debut of its M-Class series that’s comprised of the
32 Meter and the new 40 Meter tri-deck, a landmark model for the yard as it’s the largest production-built motoryacht ever made in England—and also the largest resin-infused hull built in Britain.
The Princess V42 is one of the best known sports yachts in production today, with an almost legendary combination of style, pace and agility. The optional hardtop incorporates a large opening sunroof and integrates seamlessly into her dynamic profile. The spacious cockpit incorporates a dinghy garage which is accessed via the bathing platform for easy launch and recovery. Below deck the saloon and galley are substantial for her size and equipped with a high level of standard equipment. The U–shaped dinette can also convert into a double berth for additional overnight guests. Both cabins feature en-suite facilities and the twin guest cabin can be fitted with optional sliding berths for greater flexibility.
