Broker's Comments

This boat has been viewed and photographed by Peter Watt of Boatshed Portsmouth. Register or log in to see 44 more photos of this boat.

These Princess Powerboats are built to stand the test of time, they were also ahead of the game when it came to design. Consequently you don't feel like Dr. Who travelling back in time when you are onboard. The saloon is bright and filled with light coloured wood, the cockpit is spacious beyond the accepted norm on a boat of this length.
With regards to performance I have heard it rumoured that 38 Knots was once seen on the dials of a similar vessel!.
When it comes to quality I don't think Princess differentiate between the build quality of a 29' boat as opposed to a 59' boat. That philosophy makes this Riviera a positive bargain at this price and doesn't reflect the recent money spent on updating her.
