Broker's Comments

A popular family river and coastal cruiser, this Princess 25 has been recently updated and is nicely presented, in a modern style but keeping traditional features.

It has an open plan, spacious interior with separate heads, fully equipped galley and plenty of stowage for extended cruising. With a swim platform and cockpit seating, ideal for entertaining or equally suitable for fishing, utilising the large cockpit.

With this boat's low airdraft and renowned, solid V shaped hull, it is equally suited to rivers, as it is at home in coastal waters. With plenty of power provided by the twin engines with outdrives.

Ideal for skippers new to power boating and the more experienced and a great get-away, weekender.
