The new 88 Motor Yacht epitomises everything that is Princess. She is powerful, agile and gracefully elegant and is ideally suited to long range cruising.

Her unique deep-V hull design utilizes the very latest resin infusion technology and so her performance and handling are both impeccable and efficient.

The layout of the exterior spaces offers wonderful flexibility for enjoying life on deck. Wide side decks lead from the large cockpit to a secluded foredeck seating area and the flybridge provides exceptional space for relaxing or entertaining with a large dining table, bar and optional spa bath. On the main deck, a powered balcony can be specified which folds neatly from the starboard side deck, connecting the saloon with the anchorage through sliding glass doors.

The interior styling and detailing is exceptional with the finest fabrics and finishes adopted throughout. The expansive saloon and formal dining area are exquisitely furnished and bathed in light from large panoramic windows either side. The wheelhouse and highly equipped galley are separated from the main guest areas with discrete crew access ensuring the utmost privacy, including an independent servery access to the dining area.

Below decks, owners can specify four or five en-suite cabins. A beautifully appointed forward VIP stateroom, starboard double and twin port cabin are accompanied by either a palatial full beam stateroom or two further double cabins as required.

Crew are accommodated aft of the machinery space where there are substantial quarters comprising of a captains double cabin, a twin cabin and a crew mess area. This can be alternatively arranged to accommodate three crew cabins if required.

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.
