Boat Test #1738
By: Captain Christopher Kourtakis
This has to be one of the most well designed and thought out yachts that has been introduced to the market in quiet some time. From bow to stern there is something for everyone and a “wow” feature in every part of the yacht. Prestige is going to have to make an extra set of molds because this one is going to sell out.
It’s hard to not be absolutely impressed with the design and layout of the bow lounge on the yacht. With “innovative asymmetrical architecture that provides exceptional volume and comfort” the entire forward bow is embellished with large plush cushions. The cushions on both the port and starboard have a rumble seat functionality to them to create a face-to-face dinette area around the small octagon table. By removing the cushions, you have a teak covered walking surface that have four oversized storage lockers built into the floor. These lockers are finished and perfect for dock lines and fenders.
The magnificent layout of the bridge is open. The double wide helm is forward to provide an unobstructed view of the bow. The u-shaped lunge to the starboard is plush and can accommodate 4-5 guests comfortably. Immediately behind the helm is the fully equipped galley, containing a six-person dining table that is perfect for alfresco snacking. Aft of the dinette is a seating lounge with cocktail table. The hard top is equipped with an opening roof and plenty of room to mount all your electronics.
Stepping through the wide electric opening bay door into a cabin creates a true indoor-outdoor lanai feel. Exceptional wood finish and soft touch marble countertops can be seen throughout. Access to the master is aft, while the guest quarters are forward giving you excellent privacy when needed.
The functionality and the elegance and luxury that this yacht radiates is phenomenal. Having captained every model in the Prestige lineup, I can’t wait to get behind the helm of this beauty. I know that her design and performance will match if not exceed the other Prestige models.
