Master Builders: Princess Yachts International is a shipbuilder with over 40 years of know-how. The company, which began in 1965 and was known as Marine Projects (Plymouth) Ltd., originally specialized in making 20- to 30-foot ships. Today the company is regarded as one of the world's most prominent manufacturers of Flybridge yachts and "V" class sports yachts. Yacht building began in 1970 with the launching of the Princess 32. Over the next decade, approximately 1,200 Princess 32s were ordered and sold.

The Princess 95MY is the latest creation of PYI. The ship is just over 95 feet long. It accommodates 10 guests and a crew of six. Spring 2007 is its expected launch date. More details of the superyacht will be made available at Boat Asia 2007, which runs April 19-22, in Singapore at Sentosa Cove. It will be Princess Yachts International's maiden run as an exhibitor at boat Asia.

The Princess V-70 is the outfit's largest V-class sports yacht to date. It has two suites with double beds, sleeps six overall, and has crew quarters for two. The saloon features a 32-inch plasma television and a DVD/CD player with a Bose surround-sound system. There also is a kitchenette with a dishwasher and a laundry area.

Engineering and designing elements are staples of Princess yachts. Regardless of size all vessels are designed to promote as much open space as possible. Materials used throughout are guaranteed to be the finest available. By incorporating the most stringent quality-control standards from top to bottom, the company has grown remarkably over its history.

Princess Yachts International has introduced more than 80 models. Approximately 350 yachts are produced yearly from the firm's five factory sites in Plymouth, England, by its 1,500 plus employees. Ninety to 95 percent of boats produced annually are exported to exclusive distributors throughout the world.
