Broker's Comments

An opportunity to purchase a well presented and popular 1984 Princess 30DS with twin six cylinder Volvo TMD 40B engines! Capable of both inland and coastal cruising in comfort.
Antifouled, polished, serviced and the bow thruster fitted during April 2022. The boat safety cert expires on May 13th 2023.

The classic sleek lines are still eye catching and modern looking. These boats have a comfortable fore-cabin with two single berths that can also convert to a double. Moving aft into the dinette and galley area where the table fills in to offer a comfortable double berth and also a heads to starboard.
Further aft up into the spacious saloon area offering a further two single berths and the helm to port which has all the cockpit instruments required for extended cruising.
The cleverly designed helm and navigation seats fold away underneath the saloon seating to create the single berths.
Finally into a very spacious and sociable stern cockpit area that has a very spacious lazarette below. She has recently had a Bow Thruster fitted and the helm is very well instrumented, and with twin diesels she's capable of offshore or inland waterways where sedate cruising can be done easily on one engine.
New Cooker fitted April 2023
New BSC April 2023
