Our yachts are proudly crafted in Plymouth; Britain's Ocean City. The city of Plymouth is at the heart of everything we do and we care deeply about the community within which we operate and where many of our staff live. We have continuing relationships with the following organisations which also form part of the fabric of our local community and are proud to be able to support them.
Local to Princess Yachts’ Newport Street and South Yard factories, Albion is Plymouth’s local rugby union club. As part of the new partnership, Princess Yachts becomes a ‘Key Partner’, sponsoring coaching, match day events and summer clubs for local children and featuring as a sponsor on the front of the Albion Women’s Team shirts. The contract will also provide Princess employees with discounted match tickets and reserved grandstand seating. Princess Yachts will also sponsor Albion’s prestigious ‘Project 150’, which endeavours to develop an official youth team and women’s team, with further support for ‘Albion Academy’ which provides rugby training sessions for school children and young people.
Plymouth Argyle is an EFL League One football club with a mission to engage with the local community through sport. By partnering with Princess Yachts, Argyle will offer over 1,000 opportunities for Princess staff to attend matches, they will host team building activities with employees, and provide mascot opportunities and places at half term courses for Princess employees’ children. Through the partnership, over £5,000 will be generated for local charity, Plymouth Children in Poverty (PCIP) in addition to 150 team shirts being donated to local school and football youth clubs.
Promoting Children in Plymouth, as part of The Drake Foundation, collaborate and bring together private, public, charitable and educational sectors to facilitate effective, long-lasting projects that can make a difference to improve a young person’s future. By working with PCIP to help eradicate poverty in Plymouth and by raising the aspirations and achievements of under-privileged young people, Princess Yachts will be investing back into the community by providing opportunities for the young people of Plymouth through careers events and sponsored sporting opportunities such as ‘Super Saturdays’ and summer camps with both Plymouth Albion and Argyle. Princess Yachts also sit on the Promoting Children in Plymouth Working Group to maximise its commitment to this important organisation.
Princess Yachts are proud supporters of the RMA – The Royal Marines Charity which offers lifelong support to the Royal Marines Family. Despite the withdrawal from Afghanistan, the Royal Marines remain deployed on duty serving the nation around the globe 365 days a year – whether on anti-piracy duties, protecting the nuclear deterrent, guarding embassies, or on Special Forces operations. The RMA are the Royal Marines’ Charity and Association, and are uniquely placed to understand, respond and react, enabling Marines and their families to overcome their challenges, from life-changing injury or limiting illness, to mental health issues, transition to civilian life and even poverty, offering targeted support to ensure no one is left behind.
Theatre Royal Plymouth (TRP) is a registered charity providing art, education and community engagement in Plymouth and across the region. TRP presents world class productions on all scales as the South West’s principal centre for performing arts. Through our partnership we aim to overcome the challenges people face accessing the arts, especially vulnerable and disadvantaged people in Plymouth. Together we can create pathways that are genuinely accessible to those who might otherwise never get to engage with the arts. We collaborate to make productions that represent the community and creates the space for people to tell their story in their own way.
