Founded in 1965 as Marine Projects Ltd., Princess Yachts has grown into one of the finest luxury yachting brands in the world, producing beautifully elegant and innovative designs that continue to grow in sophistication and technology. The powerful and sleek hulls of every model offer a unique combination of speed, maneuverability, efficiency and gracefulness, crowning Princess as the perfect yacht for any passage.
The Princess flybridge motoryacht style didn't emerge until the 1970's, but the flagship high-performance V-hull design helped catapult Princess to the forefront of its niche in design and sales. And adding Volvo inboard diesels for serious performance in 1975 helped solidify Princess Yachts' place in the market. By the 80's Princess had begun a long-standing relationship with legendary yacht designer Bernard Olesinski which lasts even until today. By the end of the decade they had the famous Plymouth yacht manufacturing facility constructed as well.
In the mid 90's the larger V-Class sport yachts were being constructed, bolstering sales world-wide with their powerful propulsion and seaworthiness owners had been looking for in a quality, proven luxury yacht brand. By the end of the 90's the new headquarters and a new manufacturing plant spread across 13 hectacres provided for serious output, and the Princess 52 is delivered as their first electronic diesel engine in Europe.
In 2000 the flagship V Class sports yachts are delivered, starting with the Princess V65, and in 2001 Marine Projects ( Plymouth ) Ltd officially becomes Princess Yachts International, and the production facilities begin to grow even more. In 2012, the Princess 40M Class superyacht is delivered, and the Princess V52 is awarded best Sport Cruiser while the Chairman and founder, David King, is awarded the Judge's Special Award at the Motor Boat of the Year Awards. Winning numerous awards since, the Princess brand is one to be reckoned with considering it's constant innovations and desire to raise the bar again and again in its market, and it is safe to say they will be around for a long time to come.
Today, HMY is one of the leading Princess dealers worldwide with several available boats along the east coast of Florida to South Carolina. HMY's longstanding reputation as a leader in the industry builds confidence in our customers whether they are buying or listing their own Princess Yacht for sale.

Years of Experience
In 2015 HMY sold over
Jay Jurgens went above and beyond for both parties and was extremely professional throughout the whole process. It is refreshing to me in the world we live in today to come across a salesman like him who not only viewed the deal from the side of his seller but exhibited the concern and integrity towards me the buyer as well. His sincerity and professionalism meant a lot to me. I can say unequivocally beyond a shadow of doubt that if anyone ever asked me about my HMY experience and if I could recommend a broker and sales person, it would hands down be Jay Jurgens.

Regarding the transaction of my "Double D" with Scott Levin, I firmly believe that the negotiations could not have been handled better. Any and all question and concerns were handled quickly and professionally. There was never any pressure to do this or that and I for one believe that shows a high level of knowledge, confidence, and professionalism. I realize that this transaction may be "small potatoes" but it is a sizable investment from my perspective, and I appreciate and applaud the fact that we were never treated as such. Mr. Levin is a credit to his field and boating as a whole.

Babb Rawlings is by far one of the best sales people I have ever run across. His attention to his client's desires, knowledge of the industry, ability to present relevant boats, and assistance during negotiations are unprecedented. Even more impressive was his post-sales support. I cannot compliment Babb enough on everything he did to make the process of purchasing a boat so enjoyable. I would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone in the market to buy a boat.

When I met Babb Rawlings, it didn't take long to realize I could count on him due to a series of events that made Babb a standout individual and an incredibly knowledgeable broker. Babb helped me buy an excellent 65 foot Princess motor Yacht - not evading or deflecting from any difficult situation or question, and miraculously, he simultaneously sold my Chris Craft Express Cruiser at the same time. It certainly was a pleasure doing business with Babb and I would highly recommend him to anyone.

Overall we have to say a big â€˜Thank you' to HMY, Nery and especially William. William is great to work with, he withstood our â€˜pressure' very well and managed to guide us through our first time boat buying experience professionally and very friendly and helpful at the same time. He certainly went the extra mile(s) it takes to make a deal like this a great experience. The time will come and we are back in the market for an upgrade, who knows when, but William will be our first guy to call, so HMY better make sure they treat him well!
Gina & Thomas 50' Sunseeker
As the head of a Regional Home building company I often only get to hear from customers when there is an issue that can't be resolved. I seldom get communication from customers when there's not an issue and thought you should hear from a customer and friend about the exceptional customer service provided by Yvonne, Nicole and Carmela. We had a change of plans Monday evening and the weekend of the Rendezvous was open. I got in touch with Yvonne on Tuesday and she took care of the registration and put me in touch with Nicole and Carmela and we're signed up for the excursions and have the itinerary in hand.

My experience with HMY and the Viking Service department has been Amazing! The level of support and service I have received from Pat Kelly, Mike Samuels and Captain Steve Campbell have made what otherwise would be a horrific experience manageable, and I would not consider buying my next vessel from anyone other than HMY. I'm seriously considering trading up to the Viking 52. Nonetheless, I just wanted to tell you that you have an incredible team!

I just want to take this opportunity to tell you how pleased I am with the service department headed by Steve Campbell. I have never in all my years wrote a letter like this telling the boss what a great devoted staff he has. Billie, Jimmy and of course Steve C. It is a pleasure doing business with you.

I would like to express my appreciation for the superb job Tony Maggio did on selling the Bertram. Tony went above and beyond the call of duty making sure the boat was ready for sea trial and survey, and all through the process. I look forward to a continued, successful relationship with Tony and the HMY team.

Thank you for all of your hard work, Brian! Truly was the best boat buying experience we have ever had. Mom wanted me to tell you thank you very much for all of the gifts and her pink visor! Great experience working with you!
