Founded in 1965, Princess is located in one of Great Britain’s most historic port cities, Plymouth. An historic shipyard with roots dating back to the 1600s, Plymouth has long been the center of Britain’s naval expansion. In fact, it was from Plymouth that the Pilgrims set sail to begin colonies in America. Plymouth is currently home to the largest shipyard and naval base in Western Europe, Devonport Dockyard.
With over 1 million acres of shipyard to call their own, Princess builds their superyachts in this historic harbor. With yachts designed to the owner’s preferences, their local craftsman, descendants of earlier Plymouth shipbuilders, are truly masters of their art. Committed to taking care of the environment as well as their clients, Princess has partnered with the Marine Conservation Society to restore the damaged Eddystone reef located off Plymouth. Building some of Great Britain’s biggest luxury yachts, Princess continues to innovate while staying true to their craftsman roots.
Princess has a wide network of distributors around the world to service their customers. With dealers on every continent and in over fifty countries, you’re certain to find a shipyard near you.
