Boat Details

The Princess 286 'Riviera' is a classic model from Princess which has dated well and still
stands the test of time today.
This is a particularly nice example as is fitted with a pair of Volvo AQAD 41 A 200 hp diesels which
offer quick planing 30 knot performance, and economical running.
She has had a fussy owner who has made sure the mechanical side is as it should be.
We feel you would struggle to find a better example with diesels in Europe at this price.
