A wonderful example of the Princess 38 that has clearly been loved & looked after in her years, The hull was ice blasted when she was out of the water this winter for 6 months, and she now has epoxy coatings and new Jotun Penguard self polishing anti fouling. If your looking for a sturdy vessel with space, comfort & great sea keeping quality's than look no further!
