New Model: Prestige 750

It's an interesting time for the Beneteau Group the current largest boat builder in the World. It's motor boating brands have been a source for innovative layouts in the latest years, and the Prestige designers trio of Garroni, JandJ, and JP concepts do it most with the new 750 flagship of the brand.  It's been for a long time standing and called the holy grail of layouts in this size, that for an owners room at amidships, but this new Prestige challenges that concept with an owners cabin to fore, in a separate dedicated deck between the lower and main floors. This can have many advantages less water noise coming from the hull when on the bed, and higher no headroom problem.  Another challenging feature in the Prestige 750 is that of an astern galley and dinette, first featured on the Ferretti 630 in 2005, but a feature which hardly if ever seen in this size.  The Prestige 750 comes a few feet short of being a super-yacht but many of the features makes it an impressive for its size.
