A Princess 56 designed by Bernard Olesinski and built by Marine Projects in Hamble.
These favourites, together with the Princess 45’s and others are all time classics with a phenomenal reputation for sea kindliness and handling. Very well built and might possibly outlast several more modern rivals, this fine craft is powered by 610 bhp of twin Volvo Penta TAMD-122P-B diesels.
The new owner was indeed upgrading from a Princess 45, which demonstrates the brand loyalty that these marques instil into their owners. A quick spruce up of carpets and curtains, a few safety items to update, an engines service and she was ready to go again – a fine testament to a 19 year old vessel.
