The Princess V42 is one of the best known sports yachts in production today, thanks to its legendary combination of style, pace and agility. The optional hardtop incorporates a large opening sunroof that combines the excitement of open boating with the flexibility of protection from the elements when required.

The generously proportioned cockpit features a spacious U-shaped seating area and teak table, together with a wetbar incorporating a sink, coolbox and optional barbecue. There is also a large sunbed above the dinghy garage which is accessed via the bathing platform which can be optionally fitted with a hydraulic raise/lower mechanism for easy launch and recovery. Additional seating for three alongside the dual helm makes for a truly sociable arrangement.

Below decks the accommodation is spacious, practical and elegant. The saloon and galley are substantial for her size with a high level of standard equipment. The U–shaped dinette can also convert into a double berth for additional overnight guests. 

The forward owner's cabin has an en-suite bathroom with a spacious stall shower. The aft twin guest cabin, again with en-suite bathroom, is larger than usual for her class and can be fitted with optional sliding berths for great flexibility.

Princess Yachts

princess-yachts2The origins of Marine Projects can be traced back to a day early in 1963 when three men set about starting up a boat chartering business. Cliff Viney a former merchant navy engineer working as a marine engine tuner. David King a serving officer in the Royal Navy and Brian Phillips also a serving officer in the Royal Navy; decided to purchase a Senior 31 hull and deck moulding to fit out in their rented shed in Newport Street, Plymouth.

The 31 foot hull and superstructure arrived within a few days and the men decided to form a limited company. The original name Marine Enterprises had already been registered, so they thought up another name and that was how Marine Projects came into being. At first they made slow progress until King and Phillips left the Navy and joined Viney full time. They found it difficult to get deposits on firm bookings and decided to sell the boat instead.
