Crafted in Plymouth, England
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 M Class Superyachts are constructed, is a former naval yard dating back to the 17th century. From the outset, our goal has been to meticulously sculpt our yachts around our owners’ enjoyment of them. Such dedication and attention to detail resonates deeply with our Plymouth craftsmen. Over 2,050 people, each possessing a mastery of their skill, fastidiously realise this vision in our shipyards. 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.
In 1965 David King and two friends fitted out and chartered their first boat. Instantly a success, the boat was sold, marking the beginning of what is today one of the world’s leading shipyards. In fact over 130 were produced and sold between 1966 and 1969. David has remained with us and to this day is deeply involved in new product development. As for our original boat, she has been lovingly restored with pride and passion in our Plymouth shipyards as part of our 50th anniversary celebrations.
Over 10,000 boats later, taking pride of place in our fleet is the latest addition to our S Class series – the S60. Towering above and over twice the length of our first boat, with captivating performance and luxurious beauty she is a proud symbol of our spirited dedication, experience and expertise and the sheer will to create the pinnacle of motor yachting. The new Princess S60 is everything we’ve learned distilled into the ultimate experience.
Beauty is always in the detail
We are determined to develop ever more ingenious ways to ensure every last millimetre of your boat is ergonomically sound, highly practical, and spatially perfect. Once our team of naval architects, designers and engineers have determined a design, our craftspeople fastidiously bring it to life. Every beautiful detail is crafted and finished within our Plymouth shipyards. This enables us to consistently monitor quality throughout each build. Seeing is believing though, so we invite future owners to pay us a visit and see beauty in progress through their own eyes.
Deeply ingenious, the Princess deep-V hull
Our pioneering deep-V hulls are born from our naval architect’s obsession with exceptional seakeeping and voluminous space. Their sculpted form is shaped from a lightweight, resin-infused hull composite which can create greater internal volume compared to standard hull production methods. This ingenious design ensures it requires less power and burns less fuel to achieve its maximum design speed. Such precision thinking gives rise to the most exhilarating performance, defined by its efficiency, agility and poise. So whether you’re slicing through the seas at 40 knots or navigating stormy waters – a foundation of superior engineering rides with you.
