Pros:
Cons:



The princess is a strong, well built full keel design.
There were 130+ built between 1972 and the early 80's when
Allied went out of business.

Very satisfied. Traditional design. Performs very well in heavy winds. Easy to handle, good deck space. Our cabin was remodeled, removed dark laminate and replaced with white laminate, teak and cane cabinets. Also installed new teak/holley sole. Westebeke 40 a workhorse. Very stable, likes some air.Well built.

My boat is Allied Princess Hull #8. I am in the process of a major refit. Last year I did an epoxy bottom job, as a precaution, installed a new fore-stay and a new Hood SeaFurl on the jib, as well as alot of minor things (batteries, fresh water system, etc.). This year I am refinishing the interior and plan to add radar, etc. I maintain an Allied Princess Owners web page at:


http://www.geocities.com/TheTropics/8005/AP36PAGE.html



which has names of other owners and some information about the boat in general.

Pros:
Cons:

Hull # 135. Bought in Nov 97. Solid design, solid performer. Open cockpit is great however must have an appropriate dodger/binimi especially during heavy weather. Boat was not updated for some time so have ample opportunities to personalize. Replaced 30 gal bow h2o tank to augment 80 gal. primary tank, replaced head with Lavac system and using fresh h2o from the 30 gal tank with optional external water source (Ursula is now sold on sailing with this mod), doubled the batteries and rebuilt battery compartment, installed a new refer system (Adler Barbour). Vindalf II deserves the extra attention for what she delivers. Safety, seaworthy, and comfort. No euro design here, just traditional that gets lots of attention. Vindalf II is now on the hard at Panama City FL while I do my last tour to Germany. She will have a super dry hull when we return and it's perfect timing for a bottom and top paint job. I have no particuliar problems to report at this time and will gladly correspond comments.

Pros:
Cons:

I have hull #124 1979 "My Lady Too" Ketch Rig with a 50 hp Perkins. Excellent
sea boat, good sailing abilities in
most conditions. Am in the process of upgrading the standing rigging.
Also doing the basic sand and varnish the brightwork as well as other items that need attention, she is afterall a boat and a good offshore boat at that. Will be happy to discuss anything about these vessels with anyone.

Pros:
Cons:

I have had my Princess #89 for almost three years. She was near death when we found her. Restoration is well under way and she is coming back to her original splendor. Unicorn is sloop rigged with a 44 foot stick, lots of sail (51 feet above wL). She is quick for a big boat with a full keel. we have logge over 3500 nm during the past 2 summers, sailing around Cape Breton, PEI and Northumberland straight, Ske is dry safe boat. I hope to be able to equal her capacity for heavy weather, she presently out sails me, but I am catching up. This is a great boat with lots of room, very forgiving and a real attention getter. We are always receiving compliments and questions about her identity and history.

Pros: sails well, good heavy weather boat, lotsa room , simple systems, built very strong
Cons: not that fast

Our hull # was was not used to much and stored very well, well maintained, bright and ariy inside with loads of room and storage, love the ketch rig and sail options it provides, very well behave in heavy weather, 4' 6" draft makes her get in close in the coves, and easy to anchor, full modified keel is a benefit to docking and tacking, huge cockpit , hard to add to what has already been written about the boat, for us it is an awesome cruising couples boat, Dove II
