Broker's Comments

Princess quality and innovative design ensure this boat still looks great by today’s standards. The current owner maintains her to a very high standard and the engine room is spotlessly clean. She has been coded by the current owner for charter with 12 guests, up to 60 miles offshore and has only ever been chartered with crew.
She offers a great opportunity to acquire a beautiful motor yacht loaded with all the gear for luxury cruising in style and with the potential to recoup some costs through chartering.
