Brokers Comments

The Princess V40 is widely accepted as one of Princesses greatest boats. Designed by the legendary Bernard Olesinski, her hull, coupled with her vast accommodation space mean that she has great sea keeping ability whilst still being a very sociable boat. This particular V40 has had a huge amount spent on her in the past year including both engines being overhauled, full suite of new electronics including plotter, AIS, Autopilot & more, new Bow Thruster, new cockpit upholstery, new canopy & even a new Eberspacher Heating system. She also has a new IPod compatible Fusion Stereo system. Below decks she comfortably sleeps 6, has a good size bathroom, well equipped galley and a luxurious and spacious saloon, all complimented by gloss cherry woodwork. In her cockpit, she has comfortable seating for upto 10 guests as well as a sporty helm with carbon fibre dashboard. This boat oozes quality is a testament to how a sports boat should be designed.

Princess are one of the great boat builders who insist on using quality materials & craftsmanship. This V40 shows that they build boats to last. Although a 1997 boat, she could be mistaken for one much newer and with her high specification she really offers fantastic value. Inspection of this boat is very highly recommended. She is currently lying in Southampton and is available for viewings at any time.
