Broker's Comments

Boatshed Brixham are pleased to offer for sale a Princess 385. The Princess 385 is renowned for its excellent build quality and sea keeping ability. This makes it an ideal boat for long distant cruising or even as a live aboard.
The spacious accommodation includes 6 berths, 2 heads (both with showers), a large practical galley and a large comfortable saloon. Both the cockpit and flybridge offer ample seating, and the radar arch is hinged so that it can be lowered to allow access under bridges.
This particular example is well presented having been well maintained by her current owners. She is fitted with the larger Volvo TAMD61A engine option, giving her her a top speed of 25 knots and a steady cruising speed of 21 knots.
Besides being equipped with some very nice navigation equipment, this vessels inventory includes Eberspacher heating, an echomax radar reflector/enhancer, stainless steel davits, and dimmable cabin lighting.
Also included in the sale is a Waveline inflatable dinghy and a Tohatsu 2-stroke outboard.

These boat details are subject to contract.
