Based in Plymouth, England, Princess Yachts is one of the world’s premier yacht builders, with a rich shipbuilding heritage encompassing tens of thousands of successful builds. Princess Yachts offers 20 yachts across their Performance Sports Yachts, Flybridge Yachts, Sportsbridge Yachts, Motor Yachts and Super Flybridge Yachts ranges. Princess Yachts builds composite yachts from 13m to 40m. Working out of historic British shipyards and owned by French luxury group LVMH, Princess Yachts continues its tradition of combining hand-built artistry with the latest technologies and design.
Princess Yachts began in 1965 as ‘Marine Projects’, a tiny outfit in a rented shed in Plymouth. Their first boat was Project 31, which sold over 150 vessels by 1969. However, it was the 70s that solidified the yard as a going concern, when they launched the iconic Princess 32 flybridge yacht that would go on to sell over 1200 units. The era of the Princess flybridge yacht had begun. In 1980, Marine Projects began a long-standing partnership with yacht designer Bernard Olenski, resulting in a move towards larger, faster craft including the Princess 30Ds and the Princess 65 in 1990, then Britain’s largest production boat. By 2001, Marine Projects formally took on the name it had been known for, becoming Princess Yachts International. By 2010, it had launched its M-Class Superyacht range with the 40M Princess, and released its flagship 40M Solaris in 2014. Princess Yachts kept chasing innovation, and in 2020, it launched the X95- a groundbreaking, aggressively styled long-range superyacht with acres of glass and an oversize volume.
Princess Yachts operates over 6 locations in Plymouth, Devon, on the edge of the English Channel. The yard’s facilities span over one million square feet, and Princess Yachts operate with a staff of over 3,000 expert craftsmen, engineers, and designers. Their flagship South Yard, where the X-Class Superyachts are constructed, is a historic former naval yard dating back to the 17th century. Yet for all the history surrounding this prestigious shipyard, Princess Yachts remains relentlessly forward-looking, and the shipyard has been recognised for its eco-initiatives and partnerships.
