New Model: Prestige 520 Flybridge

Prestige new 520 Flybridge is a direct inheritor of its predecessor, and the model it replaces the 500 and thanks to a vast offer of multiple choices to the customer will seem as a big headache to most of the competition with one important Achilles-heel.  From a hard-top option covering the flybridge, to a choice of stern sun-pad layout or L-shaped settee in the aft deck, and a tender garage or crew cabin choice, choices is the word of the new Prestige 520 Flybridge.  A three cabin motor yacht, the Prestige 520 also offers one of the most impressive full beam owners stateroom in this size which also features it own independent entrance.  The living of the Prestige 520 all located on the main deck presents itself with an astern galley layout, and dinette converting saloon forward.  The Achilles-heel of the Prestige 520?  It is probably its speed of only 26 knots delivered from the only twin Volvo 435hp engines with IPS pod propulsion set up available.
