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 2,300 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.

Maritime History

Plymouth has always played a key role in Britain’s maritime history. Home to  Sir Francis Drake in the 14th century Plymouth played a key role in many of the great sea captain’s most famous voyages. And in 1620 the Pilgrim Fathers set sail aboard the Mayflower from Plymouth’s historic Barbican. Some have argued that Plymouth’s maritime heritage dates back even further - to 700BC, as home to the premier port in England. Nowadays, Plymouth holds the largest naval base in Western Europe, Devonport Dockyard, which has been at the heart of Britain’s maritime defence for more than 300 years.

South Yard

Plymouth's Reef

Plymouth’s waters hold a wealth of marine life. As a brand with our heart on the sea, we feel strongly about protecting the ocean and the wildlife that call it home. The newly protected Eddystone Reef, just offshore from Plymouth, once damaged by unregulated fishing is now home to  sea anemones, cup corals as well as a multitude of sea creatures. Princess and the Marine Conservation Society (MCS) are working together to protect and sustain marine environments for future generations, including supporting the ongoing protection of the Eddystone Reef as well as marine conservation efforts across the globe.
