The Princess design team have cleverly combined high speed performance with economical seakeeping, fine handling and the ease of manoeuvrability associated with the latest IPS pod drive system.
Cutting through waves at speeds of up to 35 knots or cruising at a highly economical 30 knots, the new Princess 49 promises to be sublimely enjoyable. Spacious accommodation both above and below decks is perfect for hosting guests thanks to the uniquely designed deep-V hull.
Everyone aboard can enjoy the view from the flybridge which incorporates a twin helm seat, a large L-shaped sofa that converts into a sunpad, and a generous seating area aft with a folding table. A refrigerated icebox is fitted as standard and a wetbar with barbecue is optionally available.
The sociable layout continues in the well-designed deck saloon that comes alive with light from the panoramic windows and features an ingenious aft-galley that can be fitted with a full-height fridge/freezer and optional icemaker. This bright space leads onto the cockpit via triple sliding doors and incorporates U-shaped seating with a folding teak table to further enjoy the outdoor lifestyle.
