New Model: Princess V57

A further evolution to the V53 later becoming the V56, now only remaining in the hull lines and Princess's new V57 is totally a novelty above the waterline.  Patio door main deck, full beam owners cabin, and a larger tender garage are the main novelty features, always in demand in small sizes, but also necessitate by the V52 introduced in 2010. Interesting is the lower accommodation deck layout which apart the much wanted full beam owners stateroom with large view windows to midships, is that the standard layout offers three en suite heads, with the choice of replacing the third head with an L-shaped dinette. A well sized L-shaped galley is also located below decks in the middle of the cabin area.  A single berth crew cabin is located to aft.  The main deck offers a sun pad to aft of which underneath it is a 3.20 meters tender garage, and a C-shaped settee outside. Going inside another C-shaped dinette serves guests, to starboard is a unit behind the two seat helm station.  Extra tender space is also to be found on the up and down bathing platform.  Power is from twin Volvo 800 or optional 900hp with line shafts which give max speeds up to 36 knots.
