Project: Princess 49

Princess finally decide to fill the long standing vacuum between the 43 and 52 model, with the project of a new IPS propelled 49 flybridge cruiser. Going against the rumors the 49 will feature a new hull, and is not based on the V48.  Wider, longer and heavier by a no slouch five tons are the three words which you have to look when comparing the specification of the 49 with that of the V48. The interior layout of the 49 goes on to follow all the latest trends; L-shaped astern galley, and a three cabin lower deck with a full beam midships located owners room.  The engine and propulsion set up of the new Princess is also very interesting, and while the new 49 will use the latest Volvo 550hp IPS pod drive combination, power plants located at midships marks also an attention to weight distribution which will serve well while cruising.
