With a unique combination of traditional craftsmanship, the very latest technology and unmistakable Princess styling, the 98 Motor Yacht has a commanding presence.

Her exterior spaces have been designed with entertaining in mind with a wonderfully large cockpit dining area shaded below the vast flybridge, which can be specified with an optional hardtop to shelter it from the heat of the day. The foredeck provides a more secluded escape where a walk-through seating area creates the perfect place for a quiet aperitif.

This magnificent motor yacht is also well equipped for enjoying water sports with a large transom garage that can house a jet ski and an electro-hydraulic bathing platform which, when not launching the tender or jet ski, can be used as a submerged swimming or diving platform.

Her interior is beautifully finished to the highest standards and panoramic windows ensure the saloon and dining area are light and open with views from every position. The impressive wheelhouse includes an additional dinette for enjoying breakfast or drinks whilst underway. Both the helm and the highly specified galley adjacent can be accessed by crew from the side decks to ensure the utmost privacy for guests.

Accommodation on the lower deck can be configured for eight or ten guests and each cabin is spacious and sumptuously appointed. The owner's suite is positioned amidships and makes full use of the 98's generous beam where large hull windows provide exceptional views beyond. Crew are accommodated in separate quarters aft of the machinery space with a choice of configurations for up to six.

Princess Yachts

princess-yachts2The origins of Marine Projects can be traced back to a day early in 1963 when three men set about starting up a boat chartering business. Cliff Viney a former merchant navy engineer working as a marine engine tuner. David King a serving officer in the Royal Navy and Brian Phillips also a serving officer in the Royal Navy; decided to purchase a Senior 31 hull and deck moulding to fit out in their rented shed in Newport Street, Plymouth.

The 31 foot hull and superstructure arrived within a few days and the men decided to form a limited company. The original name Marine Enterprises had already been registered, so they thought up another name and that was how Marine Projects came into being. At first they made slow progress until King and Phillips left the Navy and joined Viney full time. They found it difficult to get deposits on firm bookings and decided to sell the boat instead.
