John Bennett was the founding designer of the Princess Marque. He collaborated with Bernard Olesinski and the Princess 30DS was created in 1980. This collaboration was so successful that it remains today.
This Princess is fantastic example. The hull and coachroof still look great. Sturdy with classic lines, a very good yacht for rivers and estuary cruising.

A very well presented Princess 30DS, She will easily accommodate 6 people and has masses of storage space too. The aft cockpit which has seating for 6 with ample under seat storage and a huge lazarette for storing sun chairs, BBQ etc. The aft cockpit leads into the carpeted saloon through patio doors. These doors make for a very secure and warm boat. The saloon is laid out with L shaped seating to starboard with a bench seat and internal helm position on the port side. There is a full width sliding sunroof, and a fold away navigator’s seat to starboard, 2 steps lead down to the dinette. The galley and head are to starboard opposite the dinette. Under the dinette table there is storage for navigational charts. Forward of the dinette is a separate forward cabin with very good storage. The cabin has V berths that can be converted to a double.

Broker's Comments

These boat details are subject to contract.
This beautiful classic lady is exceptionally well presented and a credit to her owners.
She has fantastic accommodation for 4 to six people, yet is easy for 2 to handle.
I would love to go on holiday on this boat as she has a really nice feel to her and is so well presented. It is obvious that her owners have spared no expense in maintaining this classic motor yacht over the years.
She is already to go on new adventures for her next owners.
