HRH The Princess Royal Visits Princess Yachts


Princess Yachts, the UK’s largest yacht manufacturer, were delighted to host Her Royal Highness The Princess Royal at our South Yard facility in Plymouth this week. The Princess Royal visited Princess Yachts as an extension of awarding our Apprenticeship programme with a Princess Royal Award in 2020. The awards are selected by Her Royal Highness and the President of City & Guilds Group, Sir John Armitt, to recognise organisations whose training has delivered measurable business impact.

Princess Yachts award-winning Apprenticeship scheme won The Princess Royal award for ‘positioning apprenticeships as a viable career choice’. We were recognised for having invested in our apprenticeship programme to ensure that we have a strong talent pipeline in place. Apprenticeships at Princess are open to employees of any age, with apprentices progressing their career path within the business and in fact 10% of the current managers within the business are former apprentices. Getting an apprenticeship with Princess Yachts is widely viewed as an extremely attractive career opportunity within the region.
