Project 31@50 - Before the transformation begins

Ahead of her dramatic transformation and refurbishment, we are delighted to share with you a look inside Project 31@50.

Take a look at her interior and follow her transformation on our dedicated Project 31@50 website.

Project 31 has undergone some alterations throughout her life but still remains every bit a Princess - from the impressive hull condition to her original compass and timber finish. 

The helm, which has been modified over the past five decades, will be given an new lease of life. The original period features will be restored and will take pride of place in the new upgraded helm design by the Princess Design Studio. 

While the boat's engines have been replaced during her lifetime, the current Volvo Penta's are in line with those originally fitted on Project 31 so will be reconditioned with the kind support of Marine Engineering (Looe) Ltd, official Volvo Penta Centre, and Volvo Penta.

Inside, the boat's mahogany timber will be lovingly restored while the red leather upholstery and chequered work surfaces will be uplifted with a new stylish, sixties inspired finish by the Princess Design Studio including fabrics from artisan design house Dedar Milano.
