Princess 286 Riviera 1988

PRICE £34,995

PBY is very pleased to welcome to the marketing this one of kind opportunity! Listed with us here is this Princess 286 Riviera benefiting from a complete refurb inside & out. 

A lovingly restored classic (1988) with no expense spared on works completed to date. While there are some minor internal cosmetic works still required to fully restore her to her former glory, all the key expense works including all engineering, electrical and upholstering are now completed on this refurbishment project. Below is a summary of the key works carried out to date.  



  • Refurbished (2000) Volvo Penta KAD-32 Diesels *
  • Refurbished Volvo Penta DP 290 legs, drives & transom shields.
  • Completely rewired/re-cabled throughout with new fuse board and external switch panel
  • 3 x new Batteries & Victron 30amp battery charger

  • New Black Canvas Canopy by Esteem Upholstery

This is an example of some of the work that’s been carried out – but by no stretch the complete list. This work has been carried out professionally in 2021/2022 – bringing this Princess back up to date with the technology that would be found on a 2022 vessel 5x the price. 

She is a truly handsome vessel that is capable of coping with some decent seas – being re-engined with those powerful KAD-32’s makes for economical cruising and phenomenal torque. 


Le Petit Coco really must be viewed to be appreciated – she by no stretch feels like a 1988 vessel and would be a true credit to the new owners.
