Princess Specifications

Princess Specifications (Built by Allied 1972-1982)

Designed in May of 1972 and kept in production until late 1981, the Princess was most likely Allied's most popular boat of the time. Originally available as only a ketch or sloop, a cutter option was added as an option on the Princess II, the successor of the original Princess. The Princess II came to the market in late 1977 and featured an enclosed quarter cabin, a bowsprit, and more ports. The changes between the Princess and Princess II were nothing compared to what happened to the Seawind to make the Seawind II, so the differences are not significant enough to change a buying decision.

Approximately 140 were constructed, including 12 Princess IIs that were built with 5'1" drafts, reinforced transoms, larger cockpit drains, and higher lifelines. Wallace Hale owns one of the 12 and can be contacted with your questions. The Princess was one of the three Allied models featured as "Classic Plastic" in the December 1997 issue of Cruising World. A Princess can be found used for 40 to 50K. Expect to pay closer to 60K for a newer Princess II.

Hi, we are about to purchase an allied princess. Your site has been a great help in our deciding on her. Is their an owners association that we may hook up too?
