Princess Yachts V57: Sporty Creature Comforts
Jeanne Craig toured this sports cruiser at the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show.
Princess Yachts of Plymouth, England, is a major player in the luxury sport yacht category. Their models are really exciting, with a lot of interesting features and great performance. One of the newest is this V57.
On this boat we have three staterooms and two heads, but the layout can be customized to meet your needs.
As you might expect, this V57 is loaded with creature comforts. One of them, which is standard equipment and really cool, is this retractable hard top. Just press a button at the helm, it opens up, and you are in the elements.
V class yachts are built to perform and this one’s no exception; with a pair of Volvos under the transom it’s going to crank along at 36 knots.
