Refurbishing any boat is a labor of love, but especially when it represents five decades of a company's success in the yachting industry. Princess Yachts, originally known as Marine Projects, Ltd., at its inception in 1965, has undoubtedly grown into one of the finest luxury yachting brands in the world. As a tribute to 50 prosperous years in the industry, Princess Yachts endeavored to launch a restoration project of one of its first yacht models ever built. After scouring Europe in search of an original yacht from its beginnings, Project 31, the first model ever sold, was discovered and in poor condition. As a symbolic gesture to the journey the company has been on over the last 50 years, an amazing refurbishment was set forth and the results are magnificent.

Merging impeccable Princess Yachts craftsmanship from 1965 with today's expertise, the restoration of Project 31 showcases the engineering and innovation evolution that has marked the company as one of the leader's in the luxury yacht industry. Not forgetting their company's roots, the team of Princess Yachts engineers and designers were more than enthusiastic about working on this once in a life-time venture, putting heart and soul into Project 31. With a sleek, retro vibe enhancing the fun of the 1960's, Project 31 also encompasses the sophistication of what the Princess Yachts brand produces today.

The transformation of Project 31 has been a center of attention for Princess Yachts since her debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival, drawing numerous people to admire her. This renovation of a classic is truly the culmination of five decades of accomplishment and a cause for celebration. Princess Yachts has been consistently launching successful product lines for 50 years and the possibilities for the company continue to be limitless.
