If it's lasting appeal you're looking for, the 56 is one of the most impressive craft on the market.
Motor Boat & Yachting magazine, February 2013
In line with the latest large flybridge models from Princess, having the galley in the saloon has freed up space in the accommodation below deck, whilst at the same time making things much more sociable for those charged with the cooking! The Princess 56 is actually nearer to 60ft and this additional space is utilised throughout the boat. The full beam ensuite master cabin amidships is much larger than you would expect for a both of this size. There is also an ensuite VIP cabin forward and a twin cabin makes up the rest of the guest accommodation.
Another important feature of the Princess 56 motor yacht is that there is crew cabin located aft, which can also potentially cater for guests wanting to crash as well!
The teak table and ample seating in the cockpit provides an excellent entertaining area, in addition to the flybridge where extensive seating creates an ideal dining and socialising venue.
The latest resin infusion technology has been implemented in the hull of this magnificent Princess yacht meaning the boat is stronger yet lighter and hence more fuel efficient.
Twin Volvo Penta D13 800s can generate an impressive top speed of 33 knots.
