1988 Princess 435 powered by twin Volvo Penta TAMD61A shaft driven diesel engines. This is a good example of a comfortable and sea kindly family cruiser, big enough to provide a high degree of creature comfort without being so big that it couldn't be handled by a reasonably competent family crew. 8 berths in 4 cabins.

To starboard there is a C Shaped settee, easily big enough for six. In its centre, the standard layout includes a high low dinette table.
Most of the space under the settee is devoted to stowage, in the form of a huge drawer. Not only does this make easy access it also serves as the base for two infill cushions, converting the settee into a 7ft 8in by 3ft 1in berth.
Four steps down from the saloon, an oval door opens into the aft cabin, this is a very large cabin and has a 6ft headroom and is 9ft long. Natural lighting is provided by four portholes in the sides and transom and a sky light above the berth. The berth itself is 6ft 4in by 4ft 8 in, it has a pair of bedside tables each with removable hatches giving access to the rudder heads. (The water tank is stored under the bed with some storage). Hanging locker and dressing table are to starboard. There is also an ensuite in this cabin with a separate shower compartment with a teak grating and teak topped seat, with a magnificent 6ft 5in headroom.
From the forward end of the saloon, three more steps lead down to the galley where a large fridge/freezer, microwave oven, two deep circular s/s sinks and a gas/electric hob are arranged round three sides of a square. There's plenty of storage space.
Directly opposite the galley is a twin berth cabin.
The forward cabin is smaller than the aft cabin but does provide a double berth, measuring 6ft 1in by 5ft. There is however, a reasonable area of level sole at the foot of the bed with a 6ft headroom.
The toilet compartment is much the same as the stern, except that its a semi-ensuite arrangement, reached either from the dinette or directly from the forward cabin, its headroom is 5ft 9in.
