Winner of a 2014 Motor Boat of the Year Award within months of launching, the 43 provides the full Princess Yacht experience without compromise. Two en-suite cabins and resin infusion construction prove that the smallest flybridge in the range does not lack for space or technology either. The new 43 is brimming with the DNA that put Princess where it is today.
The Princess 43 replaces the legendary Princess 42, which set the benchmark for flybridge boats under 50ft for a decade. The Princess 43 benefits from the pioneering build techniques seen in the M Class superyacht range and provides not only a smooth ride at sea but also luxury accommodation and entertaining space throughout the boat.
The boat is actually 47ft in length and when you move up to the impressive flybridge, with its generous seating and dining area, in addition to forward seating that converts to a sunbed, you’ll be pleasantly surprised at just how much entertaining space there is.
The boat is beautifully styled throughout and sliding glass doors lead from a large cockpit to a spacious, light filled saloon. Two luxurious cabins and well appointed ensuite bathrooms mean living on board is a pleasurable experience.
The latest fabrics and furnishings are evident throughout the boat, as is the case with all Princess yachts. The quality is the same throughout the range.
