"Principessa" was designed by Americas Cup designer Johan Valentijn as a high performance center cockpit cruiser that cruised with speed, comfort and safely. She has the room of most 40-42' yachts. Seller has made significant upgrades and improvements over past 10 years, so you do not have to, including new sails, standing and running rigging, all electronics, electrical system, and this year- rebuilt hatches, new fuel tank, injectors, bottom paint head, maserater, and much more. She is a exceptionally well maintained yacht and ready to go. I always tell clients that the best boats to buy are those that have been loved and taken care of; this yacht is one of those yachts. AND, SELLER HAS PICKED OUT NEW YACHT SO BRING OFFERS!!!
- Principessa has a homey and "traditional yachty feeling" from the moment you enter the companionway. The interior walls, doors, bulkheads and cabinetry are varnished teak and there are teak & holly soles throughout. She's been reworked to comfortably accommodate two persons on extended cruises, and up to 6 persons for shorter excursions. Principessa's forward cabin has been converted to a large storage room with shelving, drawers, line hooks, hanging locker, etc. and can be easily converted back to a forward v-berth / stateroom. Next aft is a head to port and a full hanging locker to starboard. Amid ship is the salon with a teak drop-leaf dinette table and settees to port and starboard. A teak chart table / navigation station is located to port of the companionway, and there is ample shelving, drawer and storage space throughout the salon area. The settee seating in the salon provide platforms that pull out into 2- double guest berths for 2-4 persons. Moving aft to starboard is a fully equipped in-line galley which is very functional for a cruising couple. After the galley is the master stateroom which includes a center line queen-sized berth, a separate stand-up shower room (formerly a full head and easily converted back to a head if desired), two hanging lockers, and ample shelving and drawer space. The engine & drive train are fully accessible from 3 sides. Recently the teak area where ports are set was refinished in off white to brighten up the interor. See last 4 photos. More photos to follow.
