    Marine Projects - Project 31 for sale

    Motor BoatsCruisersavailableMarine Projects

    This boat became the Princess 32 after Marine Projects evolved into Princess Yachts in 1971. However it benefits from a thicker hull than the Princess and unlike the later Princess models is able to take the ground on its twin keels. The original engines have been replaced with a pair of Volvo Penta MD 21b's each producing up to 75 HP and both are in excellent running order, with the starboard side engine recently having had a new heat exchanger fitted and the port side engine having had a new clylinder head gasket fitted and head skimmed.


    One of the stern drives was comprehensively refurbished in 2016 and both are serviced annually with new bellows and anodes fitted in May 2019. The boat was also anti fouled at that time with two coats of Cruiser Uno on top of a base coat of Primocon.

    With her low air draft this boat has taken us under the low bridges on the Worcestershire Avon and the Kennet and Avon canal, not to mention chalking up many sea miles in the Bristol Channel, where her weight and hull design provide good stability in a lumpy sea.

    She has a 75 litre calorifer to provide oodles of hot water and a shower in the heads, and plenty of space to accomodate a family of five, with room for two more in the cockpit berth. A 12v fridge keeps your drinks cold whilst the 700w inverter allows you to use the many 240v sockets when not hooked up to shore power, so this boat is ideal for extended cruising on the inland waterways as well as port hopping.

    New headlining and ceilings fitted in 2015 with LED lighting, new curtains fitted in 2016 and new covers for cockpit berths. New cockpit seats fitted in December 2017. New steering cable and helm fitted in September 2018.

    Price includes Navman GPS / Chart Plotter with built in Uk chart software & data card for the Bristol Channel and separate depth and fish finder. More pictures available on request.
