Following the global success of the first Princess 40M, Princess Yachts are delighted to announce that Hull #3 has now been launched at our historic South Yard site as she enters into the final completion and commissioning schedule.

The 40M, the largest composite motor yacht ever built in Britain, was launched to international acclaim in 2012 with the first craft, Imperial Princess, claiming a World Superyacht Award. The 40M effortlessly combines cutting-edge technology with superb performance, and the ultimate in on-board opulence.

Princess is set to add a new 35 metre to its growing range of M CLASS cruising yachts in 2014. The new Princess 35M will be a semi-custom motor yacht capable of cruising both at high and low speeds with an impressive long range and outstanding efficiency, while providing expansive deck areas and comfortable and spacious accommodation for owners, guests and up to six crew.

The M CLASS range of technically advanced and highly customisable yachts – which now includes the Princess 32M, the new 35M and the World Superyacht Award-winning 40M – has stamped the Princess marque firmly on the 100ft-plus market, demonstrating the Company's ability to design and build some of the most technically advanced superyachts and cementing its reputation as one of the world's most experienced shipyards.

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.
