New Model: Prestige 39 Flybridge Line

Designed by Italian Garroni above with under water hull shape by Michael Peters, the new Prestige 39 Flybridge holds her own while featuring the element, innovation, onboard comfort, and the seaworthiness that have forged the success of this French brand. Aboard the Prestige 39 Flybridge, innovation can be found in the design concept, called by the French builder as Opening on the Sea comfort. This new medium sized motor cruiser offers an all new flybridge design, and a clever layout of the two cabins, both served with personal shower head compartments. The open to the sea comfort from Prestige is confirmed in many areas like the flybridge area up top, wrap around windscreen reminiscent of the new 60 flagship in the living internal saloon, and the big view windows featured in the fore owners suite. Prestige since a year now a separate and unique brand, gives again the hull design of the new 39 Flybridge to renowned Michael Peters. The US designer is credited as being one of the best Vee hull shape designers of recent times, and is responsible for six out of nine models showing how much sea keeping is of a big importance to Prestige. Part of the Beneteau Group, Prestige thinks of the new 39 Flybridge as becoming a leader in her size category of a flybridge Motor Cruiser under forty feet. Surely it will be a big contender for top spot, although competition from other brands who are looking back to the smaller sizes seems to make things more interesting to the buyer.
