The Prestige 500S is a surprisingly roomy 49.1-foot coupé yacht debuted by the Groupe Beneteau-owned French shipyard at the 2012 Cannes Yachting Festival. Perfect for quick getaways or lazy weekends, this elegant yacht features a private full-beam owner’s suite and thoughtful layouts with raised levels for maximum depth and space. Lightweight and well-balanced, the 500s has a low fuel capacity, with a high-speed cruising range of more than 200nm. Built especially for Volvo IPS pod drive system, this yacht’s Michael Peters-designed hull provides smooth, easy handling.

The teak swim platform leads up to the cockpit, which features wraparound seating and a table perfect for al fresco meals. A three-paneled sliding glass door leads to the aft portside galley, perfectly positioned to serve both cockpit and the salon dining area. The interiors throughout are spacious and sophisticated, a blend of restful tones and bright, rich woods. Glass surrounds the entire main deck, providing stunning views, natural light, and exceptional visibility at the helm.
The galley is well equipped, with a glass and ceramic three-burner Schott stove, a stainless-steel sink, a Vitrifrigo fridge-freezer, a built-in microwave and plenty of counter and storage space. Forward is a raised living/dining area with U-shaped seating wrapped around a folding table. A facing starboard sofa provides more space for lounging. Forward and starboard is the helm, which benefits from almost uninterrupted views from the windshield and side windows, as well as a large Raymarine multi-function display, tilt steering, and an electronic sunroof that lets in fresh, salty air.
A companionway opposite the galley provides private access to the owner’s suite below deck. Because the pod drives are positioned so aft, there is space to make this suite full beam. This cabin offers a true getaway from your getaway, with a queen bed surrounded by two big hull windows and opening portholes providing as much fresh air and natural light as you desire. A built-in vanity can be found to port, with facing seats on either side, perfect for late night conversations under the moonlight. An ensuite bathroom with a walk-in shower provides a comfortable place to freshen up. Between a large hanging locker and built-in storage, this cabin offers plenty of space for your belongings. Just aft and to port is a third guest cabin, with two twin beds. The VIP and guest cabins share access to a starboard day head with separate shower.
The guest cabins can be found down a central companionway to the left of the helm. The forward VIP room is versatile, with single beds that slide together to create a double when needed, and a hanging storage locker. Hull windows on either side of the bed provide a bright, airy atmosphere.
The 500S is equipped with two 435hp Volvo Penta IPS 600 pod drives that can reach up to 30 knots. A hinged transom provides stowage for a 10-foot tender with outboard. The engine room is accessed from two hatches in the cockpit, which lead to either side of the engine room.
