Broker's Comments

The Princess 25 Sedan comes from range of popular coastal and river cruisers. This is a particularly fine example with original gelcoat and in lovely condition throughout.
She is extensively equipped and comes with a spacious and practical layout to permit extended cruising. Many extras make this a vessel well worth viewing, and with a significant price reduction she represents very good value.
I have just been on board this boat again today and I have to say she is a lovely vessel. These Princess's represent fantastic value, you get the feeling of a BIG boat although she is only 25ft, moored on the North Norfolk Broads and with a frugal diesel engine she represents excellent value,
I can arrange a viewing at short notice so give me a call, you will be impressed by this great Princess.
I am moving her off her mooring this weekend into a nearby boatyard for easier viewing, if you would like to view her give me a call, you will not be dissapointed.
