As a manufacturer like all other yacht manufacturers the world over, Princess inherently produces waste and uses a range of chemicals in the process of building yachts. However, as a responsible company that is driven to set industry benchmarks in sustainability, there is a target to cut waste to an absolute minimum in order to both drive manufacturing efficiencies and significantly reduce the environmental impact.
Princess is applying its environmental ethos to the design of its luxury yachts. The Deep V hulls that Princess is renowned for, and a new wave piercing bow being developed for new flagship models, along with Princess active ride control, will see Princess’s marine architects design ever more efficient hull shapes that deliver up to 30% fuel savings whilst being incredibly stable throughout the speed range aiding efficiency.
Princess Yachts was the first manufacturer in the yacht building industry to achieve ISO 14001, which maps out an effective Environmental Management System (EMS), a set of processes and practices that enables Princess to reduce its environmental impacts.
A good example is the Esthec® synthetic teak deck found on the R35 high performance sports yacht. It comprises of 25 per cent recycled materials along with natural resins, fibres, minerals and colour pigments.
