A Look Behind the Scenes of Princess Yachts
1.1 scale mock ups are now an integral part of how Princess Yachts brings design into reality. In this new five part X95 mock-up series, we share a look into how the design team at Princess utilises these as part of the yacht development process.
For our customers, the full-scale boat models are a reality tour of what life could be like on-board and provides the opportunity to specify fixtures, fittings, materials and colour schemes whilst personally experiencing the expansive space and layout of the yacht.
The X95 mock-up is housed in the 18th century Ropery building at the Princess South Yard site in Plymouth. It was transported to Dusseldorf boat show earlier this year to allow customers to experience the true feeling of the vast space on-board.

“Having the mock up at Dusseldorf is quite a surreal experience but it actually fits in well with the products. It explains the story and the lengths that we go to, to produce every boat”
