Broker's Comments

This Princess Riviera 286 boat is an ideal family cruiser for a weekend away or as a live aboard for a couple, who are looking for economical performance combined with comfort. Her interior is spacious and comfortable with all the necessary amenities and additional provided by the aft cockpit. The current owner has had the petrol engines replaced with diesel engines because he wanted a very economical boat to use on the River. He loved the style and the space that the Princess Riviera has but did not want the costly fuel bills, hence the change of engines.
