New Model: Prestige M48

In 2022 Prestige surprised everyone by announcing and launching its first power catamaran.  It is a bold move by Prestige and Beneteau Group, who already have a catamaran platform with the Lagoon brand who also offers two 67 and 78 feet power models.  The M48 comes from a design of Garroni, the designer of all Prestige models with help coming from Philippe Briand.  The two designers presented a fourteen meter by six sized power catamaran, with accommodation of three or four double cabins, plus a crew cabin forward.  The master cabin is located forward in the three cabins version, or in the starboard side in the four cabins layout.  A crew cabin is located to forward in the port hull with a shower head located on the other hull.  The living is on the main deck and features an astern galley layout.  The Prestige M48 is powered by twin Volvo 320hp in line shaft propulsion giving a top speed up to twenty knots.  Prestige is following the M48 with the bigger M8 nineteen meter model set to launch later this year.
