Princess 388 built in 1990 by Marine Projects Ltd to a Bernard Olesinski design. White GRP planing hull, deck and superstructure. Large flybridge with ample seating upholstered in high quality marine upholstery and all in excellent condition. Revolution has been subject to a very comprehensive refit during both present and previous ownership, making her likely to be both the best condition and best equipped boat in her class. Apart from the many upgrades already listed in the specification, her hull was cleaned, new antifoul applied and anodes fitted in Spring 2018 and in 2017 the front windscreens were renewed (frames and glass).
