Sunseeker Portofino 40


Price as reviewed:


So it’s Princess vs Sunseeker. The Portofino 40 is a mildly flawed, but ultimately fabulous boat that scores a solid 10 on the wow factor, which Sunseeker are consistently good at.

A feast for the senses, everything you see and touch is a delight. Against this the Princess V39 is a more cohesive package – it may not shine quite as brightly, but it has fewer compromises, simply working very, very well in every area.

The Sunseeker is the far more avant-garde choice, and more importantly it shades the V39 in ultimate seakeeping and the light that all those windows throw into the interior is a joy. If you’re prepared to pay for the bigger engines it’ll outrun the Princess, too. Is all that worth an extra £50,000?
