British Branded Boats on Display at Palma International Boat Show

Two British brands Oyster and Princess have announced their line-up for the 30th Palma International Boat Show which opens on May1st.

Princess Motor Yacht Sales will be showcasing seven models whilst Oyster Marine will have its stunning 100ft superyacht Penelope on display.

Jamie Collins, Director of Operations for Oyster Yachts in Mallorca, says, “Having Penelope in Palma gives the general public and the marine industry the first real opportunity to see an Oyster superyacht in the flesh.  More a small ship than a large yacht, she is eye-catching, performance orientated and boasts generous internal volumes.  Initial feedback on her, and predecessor hull number one Sarafin, has been extremely positive and we hope to welcome onboard plenty of new faces in May.”

Together with Oyster at the Boat Show will be Princess, the British boatbuilder with exciting news to report both on the Island and back in the UK.  In Mallorca, Princess will be opening an additional office in Philippe Starck-designed Port Adriano on 4 May, their second in the southwest joining established premises in Puerto Portals.

Meanwhile its superyacht yard in Devonport has just been earmarked for 4.6 million pounds of government funding and praised for creating a further 400 new jobs in Plymouth as it develops its 40 metre range.

Nigel James, Director of Princess Motor Yacht Sales on the Island, comments, “Our expectations are high for 2013, and justifiably so, as we are proud and confident of our products.  Companies with the right product combined with the right price, quality and service will triumph in today’s market and we’re head and shoulders above the competition in this respect.”

Included in the seven-strong Princess line-up will be the spacious four-cabin flybridge 64 and little sister 60, as well as the agile and dynamic V57 and V42.  Professional and dedicated Princess staff will be on hand throughout the Show to guide existing and prospective clients through the entire range and Princess experience.

Running from 1 to 5 May 2013, organisers of the Palma International Boat Show have overhauled the format into an activity-packed ‘nautical week’ with the Palma International Yachting Forum and Superyacht Brokerage and Charter Show running alongside.
