Princess V40

The V40 quintessentially showcases the sleek exterior, performance and exceptional seakeeping of the Princess V Class range. Her port light windows cascade across the length of her deep-V hull, flooding the saloon and cabins with natural light. When entertaining, her spacious cockpit provides the perfect setting with the option to specify a convertible sunbed aft.

Below deck, her interior design depicts the modern V Class look throughout. Her spacious saloon and well equipped galley combine for a highly sociable entertaining space, while both cabins exude contemporary style and generous proportions. The forward cabin has an en-suite bathroom with secondary access to the saloon whilst the aft cabin can be fitted with optional sliding berths to provide easy conversion to a double bed when required.
