Princess F43

The iconic F43 delivers exceptional sea keeping and performance. Within her sleek, well-honed lines the spacious flybridge enjoys a generous seating and dining area, whilst the flexible forward seating converts into a sunbed. Her power to thrill continues inside her voluminous interior where an unparalleled experience and sense of space awaits.

Beautifully styled throughout, F43 blends inviting comfort with cutting-edge technology. The spacious main deck features a well-equipped galley with a generous seating and dining area aft that can be converted to a double berth for occasional guests. Below deck there are two luxuriously-appointed en suite cabins, a forward master stateroom and a twin guest cabin that can be specified with electrically sliding berths to convert into a double when required. Altogether she’s an uncompromising yacht that plays a compelling part in our F Class range.
