The Princess 42 has become an iconic Princess model, setting the benchmark for fast motor yachts in her size range. An ideal family cruiser, she combines confident sea-keeping with strong performance and class leading interior space for elegant entertaining.
This latest 42 adopts a lean and more dynamic profile with wrap-around windscreen and larger, sleeker windows and portlights.
A wealth of design detail adorns the interior too, from the well proportioned, teak-laid steps linking the cockpit and flybridge, to the impressively wide side decks and thoughtfully positioned hand rails. She’s wonderfully practical too, with a large lazarette and storage below the cockpit seat, and an easily accessible engine room.
The spacious flybridge boasts generous U –shaped seating with an integrated sunbed aft, and a large folding teak table for alfresco dining. A refrigerated coolbox is integrated into the console ahead of the twin helm seats and an optional barbecue and wetbar can be specified for relaxed entertaining on deck.
Triple sliding glass doors link the cockpit and saloon, giving an exceptionally light and airy feel to the interior, accentuated by the huge wrap-around windows.
Inside, the sense of space is enhanced by the contemporary rectilinear furniture, comprising a U -shaped sofa and dining table and moveable 2-seater sofa which can be converted into an additional double bed for occasional guests. Light, sensuous fabrics and a lustrous wood finish lend an elegant finishing touch to the practical layout.
The lower helm provides outstanding visibility while the ergonomic and advanced instrumentation and controls ensure precise and comfortable handling and, with an increased level of standard equipment now including a bowthruster and chartplotter, simpler too.
A few steps down, the open galley is well-equipped with a choice of gas or electric hob, a large fridge-freezer and combination microwave oven together with generous storage space.
The lower accommodation comprises of an elegant master cabin and twin guest cabin, both en-suite with generously proportioned showers. Beautifully constructed and immaculately finished, the 42 is the very essence of a modern Princess Sports Cruiser. The 42 is the smallest of the Princess flybridge range but packs the big boat feel and refinements from its larger cousins with easy, making the 42 a fantastic entry level sports cruiser flybridge.
