Boat Lagoon Yachting is a proud partner of Princess Yachts, one of the most iconic producers of elegant, luxury yachts. Today, we’d like to shine the spotlight on the incredible design process that goes into crafting their remarkable vessels.
The Story of Princess Yachts
In 1965, Princess Yachts was born in a small Plymouth industrial unit. Over nearly 50 years, it has developed into one of the most successful yacht builders in the world. Starting out with two people building a single boat, Princess now has over 2,000 craftspeople and produces 200-300 boats each year.
Princess crafts more than 80 per cent of their boats’ components onsite, giving them control over the quality of each element. It is no surprise that Princess yachts are renowned for their meticulous attention to detail, producing high-quality vessels that are beautiful both inside and out.
Princess’ innovative, modern designs are brought to life through superior craftsmanship. They use their expertise to bring together advanced technology, practical layouts, and elegant finishings. Princess yachts are built with skill and passion to ensure that each element fits together perfectly, providing incredible aesthetics and performance.
The Princess Design Studio
The Princess Design Studio brings each yacht design to life with meticulous attention to detail. The interior elements are delicately crafted using elegant materials and finishes to ensure an incredible living experience. This sophistication is perfectly combined with the high level of functionality that makes Princess Yachts a luxury yachting leader.
The dynamic team of interior designers at Princess Design in Plymouth are dedicated to helping customers customise their yachts’ interior and exterior styling. They accept specification queries sent through their global distributor network. Customers can modify soft furnishings, high-quality furniture, and lighting and bathroom finishes throughout the brand’s range of high-performance motor yachts.

The Princess interior design team uses their wealth of experience and knowledge to advise yacht owners on the best items to suit their personal style. This can include suggestions for innovative space-saving designs or different aesthetic elements like materials and patterns. They can assist in customising the design of any Princess yacht model to help you realise your yacht dreams. This includes considering all of your specifications and working within your budget.
Breathtaking Interior Design
Princess’ incredible interior designs blend functionality with sophisticated elegance. Stylish materials and finishes are employed to give each Princess yacht interior a timeless quality. They incorporate elevated furnishings into an intuitive layout optimised for full functionality. They also pay close attention to the small details, like lighting, technology integration, and accessories, that make a design superior.
Rule-breaking design of the ‘Princess X class’ – X95 and X80 Exterior
Princess’ most recent development, the Princess X95, features an innovative new design that redefines what a luxury yacht is capable of. This complex project was developed in partnership with renowned Italian designer Pininfarina, and leading naval architect, Olesinski.
This unique design team refers to their groundbreaking new design as the luxury SUV of yachts. It has been developed with an open-plan modular interior that maximises space, providing a variety of customisable floor plan options.
This unique concept provides a flybridge and main deck interior space that cover almost the full length of the yacht. This Super Flybridge, the X Class’s defining characteristic, provides 10% more outdoor space and 40% more indoor space than a traditional motor yacht. This new yacht design takes Princess’ remarkable craftsmanship to the next level and sets the standard for further developments in yacht construction.
A Range of Impressive Vessels
Princess is well-known for the excellent craftsmanship and inspired interior design of their vessels. In addition to the X95 superyacht, a variety of smaller Princess vessels are astounding in their own right.
The beauty and design expertise present in the X95 are fully carried over into her sister ship, the Princess X80. This vessel also has a ‘super flybridge’ that provides 30% more space above deck for enjoying the seafaring experience.
This design incorporates ample natural light to illuminate the four en-suite cabins, saloon, galley, and forward dining area. There is also accommodation for three crew members. This spacious design provides a yachting experience unlike any other for a boat of its size.
The Princess Y95 is the flagship of the Y Class range and is optimised for long-range cruises with inspired styling and a comfortable interior design. Its impressively spacious design provides berthing for up to ten people, and it can reach speeds of up to 24 knots.
Following the announcement of Princess Yachts’ most technologically advanced and fastest-ever yacht, the revolutionary R35 performance sports yacht, record-breaking results and the most aggressive product launch plan in the 53-year history of the company, Princess reveals the all-new Y85, a further result of the collaboration with Pininfarina, aimed at redefining the Princess’ brand identity through a masterfully studied range of motor yachts.
The elegant Princess Y85 is an impressive sight to behold out on the water. Its expansive single-level main deck has a flexible galley arrangement with generous entertaining spaces. Three separate seating areas allow the crew to move seamlessly throughout the ship without disturbing guests.
As with the Princess Y95, this vessel was designed in collaboration with Pininfarina and Olesinski. Their design prioritises a stylistic grace that gives the Y85 a fluid contour, similar to a sports car. These flowing lines seen throughout the design not only add to the beauty of this vessel but maintain good aerodynamics for a smooth ride. The Y85’s exterior living spaces are replete with lavish detailing to accentuate these innovative structural lines.
The Y85 leads a new interior/exterior design language for the Y Class range. The exterior living spaces are richer than any previous Princess, with high levels of paintwork to seating and wet bars accentuating their form. Teak details give a soft tactile warmth both underfoot and to key touch points, such as the capping to the aft flybridge glass screens,” Said, Andy Lawrence Princess’s director of design
The interior design of the Princess Y85 is equally inspired. Intricate paintwork and teak detailing add richness and comfort to interior spaces. Three-metre windows provide ample natural light and allow guests to enjoy a breathtaking ocean view as they dine or recline in the saloon. Impeccable artistry defines every inch of this incredible vessel, from its outer shape to the smallest interior details.
The new Princess Y72 joined the collection of award-winning Princess motor yachts when it was released in 2021. This yacht emulates the same brilliant design and high-quality craftsmanship as its sister yachts and catapults it into the future. The refined sophistication of this vessel makes it a pleasure to experience.
Like its larger sister vessels, the Y72 features spaces uniquely optimised to be aesthetically pleasing and highly functional. Full-length windows bathe the interior in natural light, and gorgeous satin-finished oak and walnut details outline luxurious furnishings. Boat Lagoon Yachting customers will soon be able to view this beautiful yacht for themselves in our Singapore location.
This expertly designed yacht features modular cockpit seating, convertible foredeck seating, and extensive windows to provide natural light to below-deck cabin areas. This S Class Sport motor boat makes clever use of space and offers a comfortable yachting experience ideal for sports enthusiasts. The sportsbridge offers a seating area and wet bar, equipped with waterproof speakers and optional lava brick barbecue.
The Princess V55 is an athletic vessel designed with intelligent use of space and impressive performance capabilities. This powerful sports yacht can reach a top speed of 37 knots, delivering an exciting cruising experience. With excellent visibility and smooth handling, this yacht can be easily manoeuvred in various sea conditions. Her overall design and naval architecture are also from the Olesinski Studio. Visibility from the helm is also excellent.
The cockpit features an L-shaped seating area with additional aft seating, a wet bar and electric barbecue, perfect for entertaining. The L-shaped seating area displays this yacht’s innovative design. It can be lengthened by a foldable chair on the end for a spacious seating area or minimised to provide mobility while underway. This design perfectly displays the prowess of the Pininfarina school of design and exemplifies Princess’ expert pairing of performance and functionality.
