About this Princess V42


The V42 epitomises the 'performance without compromise' philosophy. Powered by twin diesel duo prop sterndrives, her performance is pure V Class. The saloon incorporates a large seating area, cocktail bar & beautifully crafted galley. The owner's stateroom has an en-suite bathroom & the surprisingly large cabin aft has its own washing facilities. From her distinctive profile to her superb accommodation & amazing performance, there's no doubt the V42 is a thoroughbred V Class craft. 

Eberspächer warm air heating / ventilation system facilitates enjoyable time afloat throughout the seasons. The inverter ensures independence whilst away from shore power. She is fitted with a bow thruster to aid manoeuvrability.
