“If life on board is your primary reason for buying a boat, then Princess has got it right on the money.”
Motor Boat & Yachting, October 2013.
If you are new to boating, then this IPS boat could be just right. The Princess V48 Open is extremely easy to drive, whether you are sliding sideways around a marina or cruising effortlessly at sea.
The L-shaped cockpit works very well and a canopy overhead means the entire space can be covered if need be with minimal fuss. This Open version has a soft folding fabric roof which is electrically operated and is a traditional sportscruiser with aft sunpad, tender garage and lower saloon.
The tender garage can accommodate a 3.25m jet-rib and the electro-hydraulic bathing platform which comes as standard on the Open version, means that it is easy to launch.
Below decks, the dinette is slightly larger than the Deck version and can be converted to an occasional berth. With a full height fridge/freezer and all electric cooking appliances, the galley has all the amenities of a modern kitchen. Your full beam stateroom and forward guest cabin, which you can specify with a double bed or scissor berths, are exquisitely finished. The midships full-beam master cabin is fantastic and a genuine living space in its own right.
Launched at the 2013 Cannes Boat Show, the Princess V48 Open version has already proved itself to be a popular boat and ideal for Mediterranean cruising.
