With an interior to die for and sparkling performance, the Princess 68 looks to be the whole package
The MAN’s really are monstrous power plants, thrusting you back into your seat even when you accelerate from 30 knots.
And who knows how they do it but the handling and steering for a boat of these dimensions and weight is absolutely sublime.
Downsides? It has to be said that in what wasn’t a particularly fierce chop the ride was a bit fidgety (to use a hackneyed motoring journo term) and there were a few too many squeaks emanating from the furniture.
Slightly disappointing but then that is the pay off such vast amounts of space. The 68 is broad, beamy and tall, which is why the interior is so cavernous and room on board is exactly what customers want.
Look out for the full test of the Princess 68 in the New Year.
It's hard not to be impressed by the Princess 68's interior spaces and its performance and handling. Some will argue that it's not exciting enough to look at, though.
