Presentation Princesses hard top V series model range offers serious performance together with a luxurious interior and sleek exteriors but always keeping the conservative Princess look to the overall package. This Princess V53 HT is an integrated hardtop only model, with a sunroof opening in a few seconds to the sun or closing for the shade or rain protection. Accommodation The accommodation for the Princess V53 is all about spacious spaces giving in all this more than one would imagine in a sixteen metre size. What you will like and not find on other open hard top boats is the c-shaped settee to fore port side on the cockpit deck. Other valid points is the spacious salon settee with galley opposite feeling ultra large. The aft deck welcomes you on board with a spacious sun lounger, housing under it a well sized tender garage. Going more to fore you find a spacious c-shaped settee, with wet bar opposite, the much appreciated six person c-shaped settee to port, and a dual seated helm station to starboard. Below deck is the three double cabins along with the galley and salon. An area which is very spacious is surely the galley and salon. The three cabins have all a different plan and layout, with the smaller third bunk cabin very beloved by children but still feeling more spacious to what it actually is. The cabins are located in this manner, double owners with en suite to fore, twin single berth to starboard midships, third cabin with bunks to port, and a guest or day head. Performance The engine options for the V53 are all Volvo D12 engines starting from smaller 675hp, more performing 715hp units, and the bigger D12-800 775hp. This V53 has of course the biggest option with her very reliable twin D12-800’s which gives you a wide open throttle of some stunning 37 knots. Princess continue with the tried and tested Bernard Olesinski modified vee hull, now used for over two decades by the British builder. Olesinski's hull are all about a deep vee entrance forward section and a moderate dead rise aft of eighteen degrees. Princess also used mold tunnel propellers for reduced shaft angle and cleaner propeller water stream. Propeller pockets give a performance advantage over traditional shaft method although a perfect engine position and weight distribution is also important in order not to have the effect of a high bow ride with a lot of dragging aft. Positive A whole lot of pure craftmanship. Conclusion Since the eighties Princess have always given attention to open type Sport Cruisers, but somehow the Riviera series always left them behind versus the other British builders. Come the nineties and the integrated windshield V series Princess's manages the unthinkable becoming among the most desired for a British built Mediterranean open type sport yacht. Sitting in the middle of the current ten model V series line up, the V53 is one of the latest designs putting a great looking integrated hard top, with the usual integrity associated with the British marque. Three design solutions set the V53 apart, which are the six person dinning settee on the main deck, spacious galley for the size, and good performance with not so big engines. The Princess V53 also feels bigger to its actual size which is never a bad thing when you are on the water, and everything is seen small.
