Prestige 420 wins international award
The French builder’s new entry-level yacht won its category at the 2021 Motor Boat Awards.
The Prestige 420 won the ‘Flybridges up to 50ft’ category at the 2021 Motor Boat Awards, with the winners announced in a virtual ceremony. The 42ft 10in motor yacht was once again honoured for its ingenuity and elegant lines, optimised distribution, large flybridge and incredible layout for a boat of this size.
The French builder’s new entry-level boat seduced the Motor Boat Awards jury: ‘The Prestige 420 is a good-looking, good-value, well-proportioned family flybridge and ticks all the boxes.’ The entire Prestige team was delighted to receive the prestigious award, which was a tribute to the shipyard and Garroni Design, the brand’s long-time design partner.
The table in the aft cockpit can be lowered to create a large sunbathing area
Launched at the 2019 Cannes Yachting Festival, the Prestige 420 quickly became the brand’s fastest-selling model. The boat is fitted with twin Volvo Penta IPS 400 or 500 engines and operations are made very user-friendly with the inclusion of a joystick control at both the flybridge and saloon helms.
Special features start with the hydraulic swim platform, where there’s a grill and sink built into the transom for a waterside barbecue. The flybridge also has sunbathing areas and a twin-seat helm station forward, plus an L-shaped sofa and a table aft, while the foredeck has a triple sunpad for more outdoor lounging space.
The covered aft cockpit has an adjustable table that can be lowered to form a large sunbathing area. The interior starts with an aft galley that leads to a comfortable, raised saloon with seating on four sides and an adjustable table that can be raised for dining. The helm station is to starboard.
The lower deck has a full-beam master suite and a VIP cabin in the bow, as well as room for a washing machine.
The new Prestige 420 is the French builder’s fastest-selling model, featuring a clever use of space, luxury finishing and easy navigation. And the first unit in Asia shows just how much fun this compact flybridge can be.
