Can someone with experience give me some input on these boats? I've read the reviews and they look like very good boats.

I found a 1973 model which seems like a very old boat but I'm wondering just how long it might be expected to last.

Thanks,

Tom

I don't have the princess, but I've got the seawind II. Same builder, different designer. What would you like to know?

Re: Allied Princess 36

I just wanted any details I could get. I just looked at the boat though, and it probably isn't the boat for me.

I love to look at the older full keel boats and presently own a Bristol 27 as my first monohull, but I was a catamaran racer for 15 years.

I know cruising isn't a race but maybe I'll go look at the Ericson 35 MK III I've been considering and just keep my Bristol.

My Bristol 27 has proven herself to be a rather good old boat so maybe I'll restore her.

So far I haven't done much to the boat besides a bottom job, new main, and engine (s) replacements. Ended up with an outboard instead of the 352 lb 10 hp Bukh. Then I sailed her hard for 3 years.

The boat is a pretty awesome boat though. The owner has had her for 19 years. He was a cabinet maker as you may be able to see from the photos taken below decks.

That's a nice boat. They have a reputation of being heavily built.

Also, really nice cabinetry and customization.

Re: Allied Princess 36

When planning your princess food, use lots of pink and purple sprinkles on cakes and biscuits. Finger sandwiches are very dainty, and can be cut into diamond bite-sized pieces.
