New Model: Princess V56

The Princess V56 is a further tweaking of the V53 launched in 2006. With this model Princess return to the fashion of expanding and changing model designation with the extension of an aft bathing platform. In the V56 the bathing platform follows recent trends with a hydraulic up and down movement which makes tender launching and recovery easy. Thanks to this now the V56 unlike the V53 can carry two tenders, one in the garage and another on the platform. Not bad for a sport yacht measuring seventeen meters. The V56 will also differ to the replacing 53 with the addition of a new bigger engined twin 900hp Volvo engine option, which should make a light weight top speed of 38 knots. Inside and in the cockpit deck the V56 keeps the same layout with a three double cabin lower deck, and the owners suite to fore.
