A good sport cruiser embodies a certain panache, a certain joie de vivre that is unmistakable. These boats need be stylish, sexy, and ready to party at the drop of a hat. To this end, the Princess V57 certainly looks to be headed in the right direction.
The 57-foot-4-inch-long boat is highlighted by a very sleek profile that is reminiscent of a bullet. She’ll certainly catch eyes in port, and most likely make her owner’s neighbors green with envy upon first glance.
Onboard, the V57 has the very popular “open boat” feel, with triple sliding cockpit doors that open wide into the saloon, which has an expansive sunroof. However if the weather should turn, or the owner would prefer a more controlled environment, the saloon is just as welcoming with the doors and sunroof tightly shut.
The cockpit has U-shaped seating embracing a teak table, while an aft sunpad sits atop a garage that encases a 3.2-meter jet RIB.
The well-equipped galley is situated on the accommodations level, along with three airy and well-lit staterooms. The master is amidships for added space, as well as stability. The guest stateroom to starboard has two single berths, while the forward guest has scissoring berths to make the most of the cabin’s space.
The Princess V57 possesses a multitude of attributes that will put her owner at ease. And really, with a boat like this, what more could you ask?
