Join us as we recap our 2018 owner’s events.
F1 Barcelona Grand Prix Cruise, 10th – 14th May
This year’s annual cruise to Barcelona took place over a beautiful weekend. Attended by Princess yacht owners, it was definitely a highlight of our events calendar for 2018. As a flotilla, we voyaged towards Marina Port Vell from Port Adriano, where we stayed for 4 nights, enjoying fine cuisine and great company.
On the 13th of May, owners enjoyed platinum access to the Barcelona Grand Prix, arguably one of the more difficult yet exciting race tracks, to watch Lewis Hamilton win the race.
Cala Llamp Mallorca Day Cruise, 15th June
To kick off the summer season in style, we invited our Princess and Chris-Craft owners on a day cruise to Cala Llamp.
The voyage towards the bay was smooth and relaxing as we enjoyed a glorious day at sea under the summer sun. We enjoyed a friendly social lunch at the beach club, Gran Folies, with beautiful views out to sea where we could see the series of beautiful yachts anchored together. An exhilarating jet ski display certainly set pulses racing, giving our owners and their guests the perfect opportunity to hop onto a jet ski and enjoy the crystal clear waters.
French Rendezvous, 6th – 11th July
After a successful rendezvous to Guernsey in 2017, this year we extended our trip to Northern France.
The six-day cruise gave our owners the chance to explore the picturesque coastline of Normandy, taking in the charming ports of Cherbourg and Honfleur. Both marine towns are drenched in naval history and traditional centres, making them intriguing and idyllic locations to visit.
As a flotilla, we voyaged along calm seas to Cherbourg where we spent the first half of the rendezvous exploring this coastal town and its local Calvados. In Honfleur, we enjoyed a walking tour of the town and ventured further through Normandy to discover D-Day landing sites. We said Farewell to our owners with an exquisite meal at Le Manoir overlooking the Seine Canal.
“Everything from the berths, restaurants and cider tour were spot on… and you sorted the weather too! We had a good trip and won’t forget our Calvados night in a hurry.” – Rob & Helen Facer
Cowes Rendezvous, 2nd June
We entered the summer season with our Princess owners on the Isle of Wight.
At the Folly Inn in Cowes, we had a great night of food, drink and entertainment. We even got up and had a dance on the tables! This mini owner’s event is a perfect opportunity to join us and Princess owners, socialise and have fun without committing too much time to being away.
“Thanks to you and your team for a most enjoyable Saturday at the Folly. Sarah and I had a great time, only spoilt by a somewhat sore head the following morning! I am aware of all the hard work that goes into organising such events, so congratulations and thank you once again.” – Tim Summers
Salcombe Rendezvous, 4th – 5th August
The Princess Motor Yacht Sales South-West team invited Princess owners to join them on a rendezvous to Salcombe, known for its stunning shores, clear waters and of course, its gin!
The cruise kicked off with gin tasting at the award-winning Salcombe Gin followed by a delicious surf n’ turf barbecue at the Salcombe Harbour Hotel. This weekend’s event provided the perfect opportunity for our owners to come together and socialise, share stories and enjoy good food and drink at a stunning coastal resort.
