Project: Prestige 500 S

Prestige wants to make the last part of 2010 a very busy year for them presenting a total of three new projects. The new Prestige 500 S will replace the 50 S2 and as all the range is a Garroni design, with Premorel for the concept. For the 500 S Garroni follows similar ingenuity details as seen on relative Jeanneau family sport cruiser the new NC11, but here having bigger possibilities due to the extra four metres in size. The interior is full of superb concepts starting with the astern galley by the patio door, to the full beam owners master stateroom. Most impressive is surely that this is a three cabins sport yacht with full beam owners suite layout none of which is a bunk berth. Below offers space for three cabins, and apart the mentioned owners room located to mid ship, we have a VIP to fore peak, and a third two single berths guest room. Other creative ideas are the telescopic aft deck sun shield, and another open canopy for the fore deck sun pads, both of these usually found on boats of bigger sizes. Power options has so far not been announced but the image does show a pair of Volvo second generation series drives which should offer a power of 600 or 700hp to this thirteen tons sport yacht.
