Broker Remarks

1980 Princess 412 £59,950
This Princess 412 is a classic family motor cruiser. This particular motor cruiser benefits from a very proud owner who has maintained her to an exceptionally high standard over the past 17 years. She is being sold very reluctantly. She has regularly had new upholstry, internal roof linings and her external covers have been changed to keep her looking pristine.  When you step onboard this motor cruiser, you would think that she is a brand new vessel. She sleeps five people comfortably in two cabins and the saloon.  The saloon opens on to a large cockpit which makes her feel even more substantial than she is.  She would make an ideal liveaboard. 


The foreword owners cabin has a large oval island berth with opening hatch to the foredeck and portholes on either side. The forward cabins also has dorades to give additional ventilation.  There is shelves either side of the island berth and a large hanging locker and dressing table giving lost of storage space..  There is also storage under the berth.

There is a large ensuite head with sink and storage cabinet. The sink has pressurised hot and cold water and a separate shower head. There is a marine toilet.

Aft of the forward cabin and to Starboard is the second double cabin with a large berth with hanging locker and storage shelves and porthole. Opposite the cabin is the second heads again with a pedestal with sink with pressurised hot and cold water and shower. There is a marine toilet. 

Aft of the heads and to port is a U Shaped galley that has lots of working top space and storage. It has a large 12V fridge with freezer box, 240v microwave, three burner gas hob and an oven with a grill that has not been used. 

Steps take you up to the large open Saloon that has an l shaped settee to starboard and single seats to port. The upholstery is cream in colour and was replaced in the last couple of years. The windows and old bi-folding doors have been replaced, and she now has a large set of patio doors that open onto the aft cockpit area.

One step takes you up to the helmsman's position that has a double helmsman seat with large backrest and a good sized navigation area and instrument display area. All of the dials have again recently been replaced to keep her looking like new.

The aft cockpit has a seat all around seats with separate cushions and makes a great entertainment area. The area is fully enclosed by a blue cockpit enclosure. There is lots of storage in the aft locker and davits are fitted to take a tender. Steps lead up to the flybridge which can accommodate six people in comfort.

The whole vessel if fitted with a Webasto diesel cabin heating system that was fully replaced in 2014 and gives a real cosy feel to the vessel.
