V for Victory – Princess V52 wins 2012 Boat of the Year Award

Princess Yachts International enjoyed another successful evening at the annual IPC magazines Motor Boat of the Year awards where, the already highly acclaimed Princess V52 picked up the coveted title of ‘Motor Boat of the Year’ for the Sports Cruisers category.

The V52 was said to be the ‘unanimous choice’ of the judges and the one boat in the most competitive category that the judges would (if it were their money) most like to buy for themselves. “The V52 is a boat which offers an almost implausibly well-balanced package of handling, performance, accommodation and practicality.” Enthused Motorboats Monthly. “It’s the supreme jack-of-all-trades that leaves its owners with nothing to complain about and an awful lot to celebrate”.

It is not the first time Princess have collected the award in the Sports Cruisers category with the V62 and V45 both picking up the award in previous years, emphasising the Company’s strength in the performance motor yacht sector. Managing Director Chris Gates was delighted with the accolade. “We take real pride in making every Princess the best they can be so to receive independent recognition that you have succeeded is extremely rewarding. The whole team can be very proud of this award, it is yet another testimony to the passion we have throughout the Company to produce world class boats”

The V52 was just one of twelve Princess craft on display at the London International Boat Show including the brand new V57 and V39 Sports Yachts which received her world premier at the show. The model is also on display on stand 6E41 at Boot Dusseldorf 2012.
