Princess Yachts was founded as Marin Projects when it launched it’s first boat in Plymouth (a town in the Southern United Kingdom) in 1965. They then progressed to launch their first flybridge motoryacht, which was to be built with high performance inboard diesel engines, in 1974. This first Princess Yacht model was a 37′ V-hull. By 1975 the line continued to grow when Princess launched their first aft cabin model, the Princess 41. This was also the year that Princess built their first boat with Volvo inboard diesels, the Princess 412. By 1980 the company was starting to gain recognition in the yacht market and Bernard Olesinski designs high first Princess, the Princess 30DS. This was the beginning of a design relationship that continues to the present day. Just two years later, in 1982, the Princess 45 became the largest production motoryacht in the UK, which gave the company confidence to launch their first sports boat model the following year. The models continued to grow in size, along with the company, and when in 1988 Princess was awarded the Queen’s Export Award, they decided to built a new manufacturing facility in the Plymouth area measuring 4,200 square meters.
The new facility enabled further growth and development and in 1994 Princess developed their first V Class sports yachts, the V39 and V52, both with outstanding performance and sea keeping abilities and widely accepted in world markets, laying a strong foundation for today’s V-class range of high performance sport yachts. Showing it’s strength, the company has continued to grow ever since and now offer models of all designs up to 40 meters.
