John Bennett was the founding designer of the Princess Marque. He collaborated with Bernard Olesinski and the Princess 30DS was created in 1980. This collaboration was so successful that it remains today.
This Princess is fantastic example. The hull and coachroof still look great. Sturdy with classic lines, a very good yacht for rivers and estuary cruising.
