Experience your exceptional.
Your yacht is an extension of yourself. A statement of your lifestyle. She needs to deliver unforgettable experiences for you, your family and friends. Every Princess yacht is designed with our forward-thinking mentality and crafted with meticulous attention to detail. So whether you’re dashing across the water or moored in your favourite bay, you will recognise the difference our design and details make, inside and out.
Whatever it means to you, your Princess yacht will let you leave the world behind. And take your world with you.
Perched on the edge of the English Channel lies the city of Plymouth, where we established our home in 1965. Today Princess shipyards cover an area of over 1.1 million square feet, an area rich in British maritime heritage. In fact, South Yard, where our X Class super flybridge yachts are constructed, is a former naval yard dating back to the 17th century.
A princess through the decades.
Like all the best dreams, ours started small – with a rented barn across from our current site on Newport Street, where we built our first boat in 1965. Since then, we’ve built and shipped tens of thousands of boats all over the world, from the yacht that started it all, the Project 31, to the new X-Class super flybridge yachts.
Dedication and attention to detail resonates deeply with our Plymouth craftspeople; over 3,200 people, each possessing a mastery of their skill. Through a culture of innovation, our yachts are not only some of the most technically-advanced in the world but also the most beautifully realised. Over 80% of each Princess yacht is crafted in-house.
Building to a better future.
As a brand with our heart on the sea, sustainability is at the core of our values. Because of this, we are offering more responsible ways of yachting; from hybrid-technology, to the option of eco-friendly upholstery material substitutions and energy saving technologies and measures, reducing our impact is more than just a box ticking exercise.
As part of our ongoing commitment to the environment we have implemented the following measures:
We have partnered with the Marine Conservation Society to protect and sustain marine environments for future generations. This includes: raising money for essential conservation work, driving awareness amongst Princess customers on the importance of protecting the oceans, only serving sustainably caught seafood and banning single-use plastics at all of our events. Princess is currently the custodian of the Eddystone Reef, working with MCS on several projects, including eco-moorings to protect seagrass beds, and turtle tagging in Turks and Caicos.
Collaborating with MarineShift360 to analyse our manufacturing processes and quantify beneficial, sustainable techniques going forward. In 2010 we became the first major European boat-builder to be awarded ISO14001 in recognition of our achievements in reducing our environmental impact. We are also breaking new ground in large scale resin infusion technology, a closed moulded process which almost completely eliminates styrene emissions in the workplace and local environment.
Introducing a radically new design concept for the yacht. We have completely redesigned the flybridge yacht to create a new standard of luxury living space. Our new X-Class yachts are ideal for those who want to spend a lot of time on board and prefer long voyages.
