The Princess 38 is a capable offshore flybridge cruiser, know for seaworthy handling and also a good turn of speed. On board they have plenty of space in three cabins. This Princess 38 has been maintained to an excellent standard. Over the last year or so she has had new headlings, curtains, upholstery and the carpet is brand new. The cockpit cover is also new and the list goes on. The engines are it excellent condition having had some extensive recent work, amounting to £11K, all of which was completed by Volvo appointed agents. You will be very hard pressed to find a better condition version of this Princess Motor Yacht. This boat has been viewed and photographed by Steve Booth of Boatshed Essex.
