The Princess 25 was an all new design by John Bennett and production started in 1974. The hull is deep V in the front section to semi V aft. The craft continued the Pilgrim 25 design of incorporating a wheelhouse hardtop and open plan design. These craft are all outdriven with petrol and diesel options and some twin engined versions. Nearly 250 were built. These iconic boats have a real following and benefit from an owners club.
