The Princess 41 offers excellent accomodation along with good sea keeping and is deservedly popular both as a family cruising boat and long term liveaboard. Malaika is one of the last built, has been modernised and upgraded to a high standard and benefits from the larger Volvo Penta TAMD60B engines which have proven the most durable option fitted. She is well presented, ready to go and priced highly competitively as her owner has decided to downsize.

Malaika has clearly been subject to a thorough programme of upgrades and maintenance and is almost certain to be the best of her class. Internally she has been upgraded with new wood finishes, headlinings, fittings and much more. Mechanically, the engines and compartment are in far better cosmetic condition than we are used to seeing at this age and her electrical systems and navigation equipment are all of a much higher standard than usual.
