The benchmark for which other 42ft flybridge cruisers try to follow, the Princess 42 is probably one of the finest flybridge cruisers to come out of the Plymouth factory.
Superlative build quality, great sea-keeping and spacious accommodation on board all go to make her very much sought-after on the pre-owned market.
This particular example has had very light use with low hours and presented in wonderful condition.

She has a high level of inventory including bow & stern thrusters, Copper coated hull, heating, generator and comprehensive electronics package.
The recently serviced Volvo Penta D6-370 diesels have covered just 374 hours use ( July 2022 ) and have the reassurance and economy of a shaft drive set up.

Currently located in Mylor Yacht Harbour, Cornwall she is absolutely ready for the season ahead following recent engine service and her professional cleaned both of which were in July 2022 for the year .
We don't get them in this condition very often so contact Lee Ball at Ancasta's Mylor office without delay!
