New Model: Princess 42

Princess presented its second series new 42 at the fall of 2010, what is an updated version of its entry level Flybridge range model, and a best seller since launched in the fall of 2003.  At the time of launching the 42 replaced another best selling model the 40. The updates mostly concern the outside with the new 42 having larger windows everywhere from the port holes in the cabins, to the wrap around windscreen, and the lower view panoramic from the saloon now being double in size to the old version.  Inside the changes are more subtle with the 42 taking a more modern approach to the interior fittings.  Power is again from twin Volvo standard 370 and optional 435hp engines.
