Based in the city of Plymouth – in Devon, England – Princess Yachts International is a British motor yacht manufacturer that is majority French owned, and as a result, strongly influenced by French design elements.
First founded in 1965 as Marine Projects (Plymouth) Ltd., it was later bought by South African businessman, Graham J. Beck, in 1981. Today, the brand has become known for its plentiful collections of popular yachts: flybridge yachts ranging from 42- to 64-feet in length, motor yachts ranging from 72- to 98-feet in length, “M” Class superyachts ranging from 105- to 130-feet in length, and a series of V Class sports yachts ranging from 39- to 85-feet in length.
In 2010, Princess Yachts International earned the ISO14001; becoming the first major European boat-builder in the world to achieve it. Every model in the Princess collection that is up to 85 feet in length meets the RINA Green Plus (Y) notation, an independently verified environmental accreditation from the Classification Society RINA – a testament to the brand’s commitment to ensuring its design solutions, onboard equipment and operational procedures are manufactured in such a way as to have a positive impact on the environment.
