New Model: Prestige 450 Flybridge

Prestige has released some interesting new models in the past years showing some clever layout arrangements, a design stint which started with the project of the 58 launched as 60 and continued to evolve with the 500 series.  The 450 Flybridge here follows the layout of the S of the same designation we presented a couple of weeks ago here on PowerYachtBlog with the added bonus of the helm and entertainment area up top.  In the 450 Flybridge the fly deck is reached via a ladder to port side.  The layout up top offers a helm to port side, C-shaped settee to aft, sun pad to fore, and a wet-bar to starboard, a conventional layout on most flybridge cruisers in this size nowadays.  Inside the 450 Flybridge offers a nice main deck layout with the astern galley, while below is a two cabins with two separate entrances for the owners suite amidships, and guest cabin to fore.  Power is twin Volvo 370 or 435hp engines with IPS pod drives which give a max speed of 33 knots.
