Prestige celebrates the production of its 200th 50-foot motor yacht. Three years ago, the first Prestige 500 was christened at the Düsseldorf boat show and received an enthusiastic response from the public and marine professionals alike. Conceptualised by the Garroni Design team in a coupé version and a flybridge version, the Prestige 500 is a model of innovative design.
A comfortable motor yacht, she features both inviting spaces for festive gatherings and more private spaces, owing to her generous interior volume and owner’s suite, a true innovation on a 50-footer. The Prestige 500 is impressive for her bright interior, functionality and quality of life on board. What’s more, her seafaring qualities are incontestable, in large part due to her Volvo IPS 600 twin engines and her specially studied hull.
With a clean, elegant design, her timelessness has contributed to her continued success, and today, the motor yacht has been honoured with some of the most prestigious awards:
- “Best Interior Design” (World Yachts Trophies – Cannes 2011)
- “Best Motor Yacht” (Nautical Design Awards – Milan 2011)
- “Best of the Best 2011” (Robb Report, 2011)
- “Best Flybridge” (Motor Boat of the Year Award – London 2012)
- “European Powerboat of the Year 2012” (Düsseldorf, 2012)
Jean-Paul Chapeleau, Director of the Prestige brand, commented:
“We are very proud of the success of the Prestige 500, which has been the flagship of the Prestige brand for the last three years, at a time when we have accelerated our international development.
Her unique combination of great seafaring qualities, original interior design features and a very competitive offering explains this success. »
