Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
A Fabulous example of this very capable Bernard Olesinsky designed Princess 388 fly bridge cruiser. Lovely lines, lofty accommodation, good side decks, spacious aft deck and fly bridge. A very sociable boat with great performance and handling too. She would suit a family who enjoy cruising and spending time on board. She has good storage space and a sensible layout. The engines looked good to with just under 500 hours appearing on the dials. She appears to be turn key for the next discerning owner.
Note: Offers on the asking price may be considered.
