Princess V48

As is always the case with Princess, personal choice is paramount. And so with the flexible V48 sports yacht, there’s the option for an open design with a full-length cockpit and sunroof, or the enclosed deck saloon model, available with the option of a climate controlled interior. Either way, you’re assured supreme exhilaration with up to 34 knots at your fingertips.

Innovative flexibility continues into the beautiful lower deck saloon which can either be an entertaining space or converted to provide additional berths. There is the added option of specifying this area with an inviting third cabin. The master stateroom is a beautifully appointed sanctuary whilst the forward guest cabin enjoys the option of scissor berths and oval ports.
