Since this is a craft that measures 15.05 x 4.54 metres, it is no surprise that the spaces and technical features are of the highest quality. Below deck, for example, we find a level of comfort that is unrivalled by any other Italian rib. In the cabin, there is a large central hub and a kitchen complete with a sink, a 40-litre fridge and a microwave oven. The opposite side houses the bathroom facilities, including a marine toilet, a shower, furniture units and a sink. As you would expect on a vessel of this scale, the main cabin plays host to a large bed, with seaview windows set into the hull, as well as cabinets and valet trays all around. Towards the stern, there is a double guest bed, along with wardrobes and drawer units.
One of the striking features of the design is the set of ceiling windows that fill the cabin with light. Moreover, a long series of LED lights in the false ceiling renders the space all the more attractive. Another unusual feature is the aperture leading to the prow, which makes it possible to go below deck without having to return to the console. In the cockpit, starting from the stern, the Prince 50 boasts two wide walkways that wrap around the sundeck, a dinette with solid-teak and steel table, a kitchen unit with a sink, a worktop/chopping board, two induction burners, a 100-litre drawer fridge and an ice maker.
The helm station features three separate, ergonomic armchairs and a high-quality cockpit protected by a double-layer tempered-glass windscreen rather than the more usual Plexiglas. The dashboard can be fitted with a large-screen display or with two screens side-by-side, each measuring at least 12 inches. At the bow, the designer has sited a dinette with an electrically activated, height-adjustable table that can be entirely concealed below the deck, which itself is made entirely from highly prized solid teak, whereas the bitts are all retractable and the stainless-steel handrails feature a special oval shape to make them easier to grip.
The array of accessories is comprehensive, including as standard two pedal-controlled stern mooring hoists, air conditioning in the cabin and an electrical power generator. Making the vessel all the more exclusive is the cushioning from Italvipla’s “Tropical” range, made using special materials that do not become excessively hot under prolonged sunlight, even in the darkest shades. The customisation options are extensive. From the outset, Nuova Jolly Marine has always gone to great lengths to meet its clients’ requirements, and accordingly offers a rich palette of colours for the hull, the deck, the tubes and the cushioning.
The optional extras that can be used to customise the Prince 50 include the T-Top in coated stainless steel with fibreglass roof, the sun canopy with carbon poles and the bow thruster.
