History of Prestige Yachts
Although Prestige Yachts was only branded about 30 years ago, their roots and history date back to 1957. It all began when Henri Jeanneau, who was mostly fond over airplanes and automobiles, began admiring powerboats that used to pass by his windows. His interest in powerboats instantly became a passion with an interest in competitive powerboat racing. He then crafted his first wooden hull in Les Herbiers, France. After Jeanneau won his first race, he then decided to dedicate his life to shipbuilding and started producing boats in series and established his own shipyard, Jeanneau Shipyard.
In 1989, the first Prestige Yacht was born; Prestige 41. Jeanneau Yachts and powerboats became extremely popular among yachtsmen for their characteristics, sleek design and how easy they were to handle. Jeanneau didn’t want to stop and rely on past achievements, that’s when Prestige Yachts began. With the designs of J&J Design and Jeanneau’s design team, the shell of this yacht was the best they have seen yet. And let’s not forget about the inside, the Italian’s, Garroni and Musio Sale crafted the deck and interiors. Since then, Garroni has worked on all of Prestige Yachts interiors; reflecting on timeless lines, contemporary solutions, and spacious floorplans with a light airy look and feel.
The Prestige 620 Flybridge is an amazing cruising boat, an interior layout that is hard to beat and slightly different from any in its class range. Sliding glass doors into the interior of this vessel greet you to the galley. The galley has been strategically located to be placed in-between the two main dining areas. The galley is also equipped with an island, perfect for extra food prepping. The natural light that flows in from the large windows on both sides, plus an overhead sunroof, is nothing but exquisite. Below deck contains three staterooms and a crew quarter. The master has a full beam that features a desk/vanity combo as well as a soda and en suite. Overall, the combination of cruising and luxury tied into one on the 620 Flybridge is a yacht perfectly easy for entertaining with an enjoyable cruising experience.
A substantial cruising yacht with high topsides and tall superstructure describes the Prestige 550 Flybridge to the tee. This particular Prestige Yacht delivers a lot of boat for the money. The huge windows, both above and below, allow for an even bigger feel on the already celebrated space. The master cabin spreads across a 15 foot 8 inch beam and the VIP feels almost as huge! Under the stairs is enough room for a full-size washer and dryer, along with extra storage space. The guest twin, on the port side, shares a forward head compartment, with no attempt at a third head or fourth cabin, giving each area enough room to breathe and feel as open as it can.
Most would call this yacht, a bold icon. A unique size for a motor yacht, 50-feet. The interior layout features two concepts that define this yacht; an immense living space on a single level. A spacious galley that services both the interior and exterior. Also, an en suite swallowed in light by two large panoramic windows with an independent access entry. This particular Prestige Yacht has won more awards than any other 50-foot yacht in the entire world.
With timeless lines and a highlighted exterior, the style of Garroni design is beautifully expressed on the interior that cleverly combines the bright open living space on the main deck with private spaces in the two cabins; both with separate entrances. With two Volvo IPS 400 diesel engines, this yacht has a cruising speed at 24 knots showing off this Prestige Yacht in exquisite lengths. With a secure and comfortable hull, designed by Jernej Jakopin, it promises with exceptional sea keeping and maneuverability.
