MBM snuck aboard the very first Princess 52 off the production line to bring you this boat review

You know exactly what to expect from a flybridge Princess. Never one to reinvent the wheel, its model development has been one of gentle evolution. But, against that backdrop, this new 52 is bordering on the radical, constructed using the very latest resin-infusion techniques, featuring a next-generation hull design, and displaying scant regard for internal layout tradition with Princess’s first ever galley aft layout.

Four feet longer and seven inches wider than the 50 it replaces, this is a very diferent boat.
