Princess Motor Yacht Sales to open marine service centre at Saxon Wharf

Posted: 8th August 2019

We are delighted to announce that Princess  Motor Yacht Sales has signed a ten-year lease at Saxon Wharf on the River Itchen, Southampton and  is  set to create a maintenance and  retrofit  centre for its customers. 
  
Saxon Wharf already offers outstanding facilities for  motor yachts  and other large craft. Its position near to Southampton Water makes it the ideal location for large boats in need of secure, quick turnaround lift-outs, repair work or full-scale refits. 
  
Princess  Motor Yacht Sales is the world’s largest distributor of Princess Yachts, a  British luxury motor yacht manufacturer, well known for its forward-thinking designs and meticulous attention to detail. 
   
“This is a really exciting development,” says Richard Broadribb, MDL’s Property Director. “Princess  Motor Yacht Sales  has a pre-eminent reputation, well respected in so many arenas, and we’re delighted to be able to accommodate them on site. The company’s presence highlights the benefits of Saxon Wharf in its location and quality of MDL’s highly skilled team. We look forward to working with them for years to come.” 
  
Saxon Wharf boasts a 200-ton boat hoist as well as fully serviced pontoons able to accommodate boats of up to 80 metres. Its position so close to the Solent and right in the heart of Southampton city centre within easy reach of London and the M3, makes it a highly desirable location for marine businesses.  
 
Since  Princess Motor Yacht Sales  started in 1964 the company’s  operations have  expanded to  include new yacht sales, used yacht sales, brokerage, charter, shared ownership, and aftercare services throughout the UK and in the Channel Islands, Spain, the Balearic Islands, Turkey, Switzerland and Germany.  With her sister brand Argo Yachting, the company is also a distributor for Chris-Craft in the UK and the Balearics.  
  
The boatyard at  Saxon Wharf  will be used  to carry out  the care and  maintenance,  along with  bespoke  upgrades  of  these  beautiful craft. 
 
“Alongside growth in our Princess business, this facility will allow for the future growth of Argo Yachting along the south coast, providing a luxury brokerage and aftercare service to all yacht brands,”  says  Max Whale, CEO.  “While we will retain our other sales and service office, Saxon Wharf  will increase the scope and depth of our aftercare capabilities. It  offers an excellent opportunity to build a bespoke unit around our  customers’ present and future needs.”
