Broker Remarks

This Princess 25 is a nice example, she underwent a full refurbishment in 2007.
The 1979 hull and mechanics were completely stripped and refurbed which included a new engine, outdrive, instrumentation, electrics and navigation equipment.
The inside cabin was reupholstered with new foam inserts etc, the work was carried out professionally.
