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 is the French brand’s fastest-selling model
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 42ft 10in yacht has a surprisingly spacious interior
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.
The 42ft 10in yacht has a hydraulic aft platform, sizeable flybridge and roomy foredeck
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 Garroni-designed interior has lots of seating in the saloon
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 full-beam master cabin has separate access to the VIP cabin in the bow
The lower deck has a full-beam master suite and a VIP cabin in the bow, as well as room for a washing machine.
