The new Princess 56 is a lot of yacht fit in a hull shorter than 60 feet. The open flybridge includes two J-shaped seating areas, one surrounding a table for meals under the sky and the other close to the upper helm station. The dinette on the aft main deck leads into a spacious interior salon with large windows. A second dinette on the portside faces an open galley, which a low divider sets apart from the helm station. A central staircase leads to three cabins. The full-beam master suite is amidships, with a double-berth VIP in the bow and a twin cabin between. Aft of the engine room is also a crew cabin. The bathing platform can be fitted with an optional mechanism to raise and lower it into the water for easier tender operations. With the standard twin CAT C12 engines, the Princess 56 reaches top speeds of 29 knots.
