Years of design evolution have contributed to making the Princess 42 the definitive choice for short distance or genuine long range cruising at this size.
Space is the keynote throughout the 42, from the two comfortable cabins with their own bathrooms to the elegant saloon and practical galley. The convertible settee in the saloon provides occasional berths and triple glass sliding doors open to the large teak-laid cockpit allowing plenty of room for alfresco dining. The spacious flybridge includes a generous entertaining area with refrigerated coolbox and electric grill and separate aft sunbed.
The Princess 42 combines speed and superior sea keeping with luxury, comfort and style the very essence of a fast motor yacht.
