“It's a boat for all seasons and all moods. It performs its job to perfection and is quite simply an excellent British flybridge boat.”
MotorBoat & Yachting magazine, June 2013
This is no ordinary mid-sized flybridge cruiser. The steering is so instinctive and light that you have to remind yourself you are at the helm of a 54ft, three-cabin boat. The Princess 52 shows agility as well as robust seakeeping and is an excellent advert for what a really well designed shaft installation can do.
The aft-galley layout is unique to the Princess range and works extremely well. It provides easy access to the galley whilst at the same time easy access to both the cockpit and the flybridge.
Additional height is achieved in the accommodation area being dropped deeper into the hull, making this boat feel like a much larger craft. The master cabin is nothing short of palatial and the Princess signature frameless hull windows make the cabin extremely light and spacious.
The VIP and guest cabin share the smart ensuite bathroom and the twin guest cabin is much larger than one would expect for a boat of this size, which historically provided only bunk bed accommodation.
The 52 can sleep six people comfortably there is an additional aft cabin for crew or more guests. There is a lot of boat for the money with the Princess 52, and coupled with the usual build excellence, this is a flybridge boat that offers excellent value.
