Princess’s preferred designer Bernard Olesinski penned the hull, which featured propeller tunnels for shallow shaft angles and efficiency. The boat ran smoothly thanks to her fine entry and aggressive chines and was well suited to her efficient MAN 1100hp V10 diesel power plants. Savvy boat buyers understood what this acclaimed model offered – the fusion of single-level indoor/outdoor entertaining decks, the joy of an opening electric sunroof, and the convenience of an aft tender garage – all of which were perfectly.

Boarding the vessel was made easy by stepping onto her wide teak-laid hi/lo swim platform. All exterior teak decking had recently been treated with the popular Semco coating and was beautifully presented. Stairs up to the cockpit were on the centreline of the vessel. The teak-laid cockpit featured a generously sized sun lounge to port, and to starboard, she featured a U-shaped dinette with a folding teak table that could cater for a crowd of eight to ten guests with the addition of some folding chairs. The cockpit amenities centre, which was positioned to port against the saloon bulkhead, was complete with food-prep space, bbq, sink, garbage bin, icemaker and drawer fridge. 

A removable shade awning could be quickly installed for sun protection over the cockpit. As you moved into the saloon, which was separated from the cockpit via sliding glass doors, you would observe her all-weather setting for eight around a satin finish timber dining table to starboard.

Over on the portside the saloon layout featured a two-person built-in club lounge, behind which a pop-up flat-screen television emerged from the cabinet at the press of a button. To ensure you were never too far from a beverage bar fridge and cocktail cabinet complete with glass storage were also installed to port. Her retractable sunroof provided enormous light and fresh air in the saloon when required to the extent that you’re virtually outdoors, or you may opt to close the sunroof and crank up the air-conditioning, and then enjoy a comfortable all-weather living/dining cocoon with amazing views! 

Her delightful saloon interior finishes included practical oiled teak flooring, a central carpet inlay, light satin timber joinery, and cream-coloured leather lounges. Mood lighting added to the sophistication. The front of the salon featured portside passenger seating which was delightfully inclusive, with a u-shaped lounge around a small fixed table. Three or four people could sit there and converse with the skipper while reeling in some ocean miles. The owner or copilot/navigator got to sit alongside the skipper on a matching individual leather helm seat.

For ease of access out on the side deck the skipper would love the adjacent pantograph helm door out onto the Starboard side deck. ‘G5’ featured a “sporty” helm station complete with Rexroth electronic controls offering go-slow, synchro and cruise modes. This area was complete with late-model touch screen Raymarine electronics. The analog engine gauged however gave the boat a timeless feel. Skippers would appreciate everything at their fingertips, while passengers would feel part of the action also. Importantly there were no steps or mezzanine levels from the windscreen to the cockpit – just perfect for entertaining. 

Centreline steps lead down from adjacent the helm to the lower deck accommodation and galley. The U-shaped chef’s galley featured hardwearing timber flooring and gloss black Avonite countertops. Her galley appliances included a four-burner ceramic cooktop, rangehood, convection microwave, domestic-sized upright fridge/freezer, dishwasher, twin sinks, and concealed garbage bin. 

The accommodation provided three very generous cabins and three heads, the piece de resistance, and a full-width owner’s cabin featuring sizable oval-shaped picture ports that could be opened for fresh air. Indeed throughout the lower accommodation and galley, lots of opening portlights permitted light, natural ventilation and connectivity with the outside world. Starting in the bow a lucky few would get to enjoy the VIP guest cabin. It had an expectantly plush double island berth, a regal atmosphere derived from designer reading lamps and stainless steel air-con vents, with jewelry and makeup areas. Opening portlights and a hatch could be called on for fresh air and light. The ensuite had a separate shower stall, rectangular washbasin, and Grohe tapware. Amidships is the day head/ensuite (again with a separate shower stall) serving the third cabin which consisted of over and under adult length bunk beds. The two other cabins pale in comparison when compared with the full-width stateroom amidships! The king-sized bed on the centreline was flanked by a two-seater settee, leather-topped dresser, or workstation, with a walk-in wardrobe and a bulkhead mounted built-in television. The spacious ensuite to starboard naturally had a separate shower and VacuFlush toilet. Large rectangular picture windows, several of which opened as mentioned prior, provided wonderful views out of the master cabin. Back aft ‘G5’ was equipped with crew quarters incorporating a single berth and a dedicated crew head and shower. 

Moving forward from the crew quarters via a watertight door you entered the walk-in all-white engine space that welcomed you with a centre checker-plate walkway and full headroom. Access to the lazarette was through a deck hatch and revealed storage space for the fenders and more, plus access to the steering gear.
