At 36’0" LOA, 27’6" LWL and 11’0" beam, the Princess is smaller than the Mistress but offers the same feeling of open space. With 14,400 pounds displacement (6,000 less than the Mistress), the Sales found her ketch-rigged sail area of 604 square feet just right. On their Bahamas cruise, helped by the shallow draft of 4’6", they enjoyed sailing with a jib-and-jigger combination whenever the wind piped up and, when anchored, leaving the mizzen up to help steady the boat in tide-swept gunkholes. Forty gallons of diesel fuel gives a good range under power with the standard Westerbeke/Perkins 107. Ed reports absolute confidence in the boat. Just look at the massive worm-gear steering without any wires to break or to slip off the quadrant, he remarks. Allied, by the way, installed the same reliable wheel steering on the Mistresses.
