New Model: Prestige 350 Flybridge

A very interesting and expected model from Prestige, this is the 350 Flybridge. Designed by Garroni, with the help of J & J, and Je De Premmorel for the concept the new 350 Flybridge builds on the hull lines of the early 2010 launched NC11, and is to be the entry level smallest model of the Prestige brand. Very stylish looks for a small size flybridge motor cruiser, a spacious aft deck, and interiors are the 350 Flybridge strong points. Living spaces on the main deck offer a C-shaped settee to port side, bar, and helm station to starboard. Below is an L-shaped galley, and the two cabins; owners room to fore, and double guest to port side. In every area the 350 Flybridge surprises for its spaces considering the length of just over eleven meters and this is acquired thanks to the use of stern drive propulsion, which also give better efficiency to the positive, but have higher annual servicing costs on the negative. Power is from twin 220hp Volvo engines which as I said for the NC11 do look a bit small for this size and weight flybridge motor cruiser.
