As if proof were needed that Princess Yachts do things properly, this Princess 56 is it. Nick takes us on a full tour...
Some yachts give you a perfect first impression as soon as you step inside and the Princess 56 is one of them, just one look at that saloon and you know exactly what this yacht is all about – stylish and practical family cruising for people who value the finer things in life.
In this video, Nick Burnham takes us on board a 2017 Princess 56 and the highlights start right at the transom, with a high-low bathing platform and a telescopic passerelle, giving you plenty of boarding options.
Moving past the shaded cockpit with its folding table and you are into the aforementioned saloon. Most yachts of this size opt for the galley-aft layout these days, but Princess have included a fridge in the saloon area, so cold drinks are always on hand.

The galley itself is raised up by a couple of steps, just aft of the inner helm station, and is fitted out with all the mod cons you’d expect, such as a dishwasher, custom crockery storage and a proper oven.
Enjoy the tour…
