New Model: Princess 52

Its been billed as one of Princess's most astonishing latest new models in this size for years to come, this is the 52 which replaces a good seller from the British Plymouth based boat builder the 50 Mk.3.  The 52 is not just a cosmetic replacement though, it is a totally new yacht taller and half a foot wider, and the layout part is full of improvements being substantial and complete. The most important change is definitely the astern galley on the main deck, a first for Princess, who located cooking duties in a more social area which joins saloon and cockpit.  But another important difference that is if you compare the 52 with the last version of the 50, is also that the third cabin is also not of a bunk layout. Exterior wise the changes of the 52 continues from nice all around views wrapping the saloon, to large view windows below serving the large midships owners stateroom. The Princess 52 is so good compared to the old 50 Mk.3 that even though its just a little bit bigger I am sure many owners will consider a move up as soon they board on one.
