With breathtaking good looks, dynamic performance and versatile accommodation, the V52 will redefine her class. The arrival of this new model is a landmark event in the evolution of the Princess range. Complementing the fully ‘open’ models within the V Class range, the main deck of the V52 consists of two independent entertaining areas, the aft cockpit and the enclosed saloon forward of triple sliding glass doors. The V52 is a two stateroom craft with a full beam master and a full sized stateroom forward with an en-suite bathroom and shower.
