MBM was the first magazine to test the Princess 52 recently, watch our exclusive boat test video or click through our gallery of images
The moment Princess launched its very first flybridge boat in 1973, the 37, the die was cast. Despite later evolving its very successful V-Class line of sportscruisers and more latterly the M-Class motoryacht range, flybridge boats have remained at the core of what Princess does.
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 different boat.
