New Model: Prestige 450 S

Prestige continues to reinvent its line with Italian designer Garroni extending and evolving the looks of what he shown a couple years ago with the new 60 flagship.  As it often happens a new top line model usually represents an upgrade and a change to all the line and Prestige has rightfully followed this philosophy with the 450 taking another step from the one year ago presented 500 series.  The Prestige 450 S is a fully enclosed hard top sport cruiser which bring some interesting features in this size from the astern galley on the main deck, to the two separate staircases for the two cabins; owners and guest to fore.  This last is very unusual for a cruiser measuring thirteen meters which adds privacy to the owners room to midships and separate its completely from the guest cabin to fore.  Certainly an appreciated feature if your cruise will involve guests.  Another two extra berths are available in the convertible saloon dinette on the main deck which is located to port side, opposite of the helmsman station, and a two person relaxing sofa.  Power is twin Volvo 370 or optional 435hp engines with the easy to use IPS pods propulsion.
