Princess’ new V48 introduces a fully enclosed deck saloon with hydraulic sliding roof to the sub fifty foot sport yacht genre. And it’s no less class leading down below with an incredible full beam master cabin amidships. Featuring the very latest IPS drive technology and resin infusion construction, this is the white hot edge of design engineering. If you are new to boating, then this IPS boat could be just right. The V48 is extremely easy to drive (this boat has twin Volvo IPS600s with 435hp each), whether you are sliding sideways around a marina or cruising effortlessly at sea. With an extremely comfortable driving position, the V48 shows exemplary performance. It is fast enough and has a wide range of cruising speeds between 22 and 28 knots.

The accommodation truly makes this boat stand out from others in its class. The master cabin offers full standing headroom, an ensuite and a pair of huge windows on the water which afford wonderful views – this is more like a funky hotel suite! The forward cabin also has some cool touches with standard scissor-action berths and oval-shaped ports which allow for plenty of natural light to pour in.

The V48 Deck version offers both a great outdoor experience with plenty of space on the bow to stretch out on those long sunny days. but also a spacious upper saloon with a GRP hardtop which means there is somewhere comfortable to relax should the weather turn.  There is lots of storage space both in the L-shaped cockpit area and the saloon.

" The accomodation beggars belief. The master cabin especially looks to have been plucked from a boat in the class above. "
