New Model: Princess F55

It's been a remarkable 2018 for Princess, one full of novelties and new models coming out as if there is no tomorrow, so much is this that this new F55 nearly came out unnoticed.  The Princess F55 replaces the 56 released from 2012 and produced till 2017, what has been a popular model for the Plymouth British boat builder.  Apart sleeker and more modern exterior looks the main difference between the new F55 and the outgoing 56 is the main deck, with the 55 having an astern galley layout versus the central format.  The main deck of the old and new model is nearly identical, three double cabins layout with a full beam owners stateroom taking center stage, while the optional crew cabin in the F55 seems to be a bit more spacious.  The Princess F55 is to be powered by twin Volvo 800hp engines which allow for top speeds up to 32 knots.
