The Princess V58 has all the levels of luxury and standard of fittings as the other contenders, but she can also boast sports boat like performance. Silky smooth, quiet and precise handling that would be indelibly planted in the minds of anyone who cares to take the helm. The handling is so precise it is literally a case of turn the helm a couple of centimetres and you can immediately see the bow move a couple of centimetres in that direction. Smooth is not a strong enough adjective to describe the feel of the steering, which was of course complimented by precise electronic engine controls, the steering is exceptional the V58's turning circle and leaves other 58 footers (pardon the pun) in her wake.
The boat leans into turns like a 20-foot mono hull, while having props in the mini tunnels formed between the large chines and the keel, eliminates tail slippage and help her props bite the water hard. Push the throttle firmly forward and the electronic engine controls bring the hull onto the plane quickly and if not pulled back will continue to accelerate up to 32 knots, that's more than some ski boats and you will hardly feel like your moving the ride is quiet and smooth.
This boat also has an extremely sharp bow entry, so the hull slices through the water cleanly, while the tunnels formed between the second strakes and down-turned chines also aid lateral stability and straight-line tracking.
She's an extremely seaworthy and dry boat. But it isn't only her performance and handling that make this boat a real winner. Like all sports cruisers, her rear cockpit is designed for entertaining and outdoor living and in the case of the V58, this cockpit is enormous, her design also allows for plenty of living room below decks. Walk down the stairs into the main saloon and you'll find it's bright, four large portholes let plenty of natural light into the cabin, and open plan.
A beautiful handmade-wooden table surrounded by an equally beautiful semicircular leather lounge, is to port facing the bar, sound system and TV mounted on the wall above the cabinet. Two bar stools, which are stored in an underfloor locker when not in use, are employed for people sitting around the right side of the dining table. The cook will love the fully functional galley, which is positioned along the starboard side of the main saloon. It features a two-burner stove, ample bench space, above bench and under bench storage cabinets, a concealed fridge/freezer, sink with mixer tap and a microwave/conventional oven and grill and naturally a dishwasher.
The guest's stateroom is positioned in the bow. It is also luxuriously finished, TV and hanging locker and island bed.
The main stateroom is larger and sited under the helm floor and can be used even in heavy sea conditions being located further to the stern of the boat and has its own ensuite and entertainment system. Moving back up to the helm station, needless to say this boat is fitted with comprehensive instrumentation and a top of the line Raymarine electronics package radar, chartplotter, auto pilot and the list goes on and on. Every electronic aid a skipper could wish for is in this boat including bow and stern thrusters with a remote for single handed docking also handy when picking up a mooring.
Above the helm station is a semi-hardtop with an opening sunroof for those wishing to soak up a few rays. A dual helm seat and L-shaped lounge to port allows passengers to keep the skipper in the conversation loop. Behind the helm seats is another large, U-shaped lounge surrounding a rectangular table. With the wet bar and sink opposite this area, it normally becomes the centre of the entertaining scene. It's also a great space in any weather conditions with ample heating and cooling bellowing from every corner to keep you and your guests very comfortable.
The hydraulically operated tender garage lid is covered with a large sun pad, ideal for the sun lovers onboard, while the wide swim platform makes the ideal launching platform for waterborne activities. Out on the fore deck is another sun pad that is surrounded by a hip height bow rail for the added security of people moving about on the bow. With a modest price tag where you can by a five-star luxury home overlooking Sydney Harbour for that sort of money. Her magnificent joinery, eye catching sleek lines, glimmering white gelcoat, teak decks and polished stainless steel metal work combine to complete this a very stylish package.
Her opulent finish and standard of workmanship is first class. The aft cockpit and below deck areas maximise the use of all available space and her layout is purely functional. And remember, when you get sick of the view surrounding this floating home you can simply weigh anchor and move to another idyllic location. The V58 sports cruiser is truly a jewel in Princess Motor yachts crown.
