The recently debuted M48 from Prestige received a prestigious Design Innovation Award in the multihull category at last month’s Genoa International Boat Show.

The Design Innovation Award 2022, created by the Italian Marine Industry Association and by the company I Saloni Nautici, was presented during a special ceremony on Friday 23 September.

Every year an international jury assigns the award to one of the new models present at the Genoa International Boat Show with the aim of supporting and encouraging innovation and excellence in the world of nautical design.

The M48 was recognise by the jury thanks to the Prestige power cat’s “search for a new typology that combines comfort and efficiency in performance”.

“We worked on an entirely new base to offer a new ‘art de vivre’ in harmony with nature. One that is 100% motor yacht, without any of the constraints inherent to sailboats,” said Rosalie Le Gall, Prestige product marketing manager.

“We decided to apply and exclusively motor yacht design. This design concept enabled us to offer a multihull that is not as wide as a sailing catamaran, but taller.”

Touted by Prestige as unique in its market segment, the M48 features “unparalleled freedom of movement and stability to experience serene moments at sea”.

Prestige designer Camillo Garroni sums it up succinctly: “The M48 is a villa that opens on to the sea.”

Meanwhile, the M48 is also nominated for the prestigious title of European Powerboat of the Year 2023, which is awarded each year by the German magazine Boote recognising outstanding new boat models on the European market.

The winner is expected to be announced at boot Düsseldorf in January 2023.

Prestige Motor Yachts are offering yachting journalists two exclusive sea trial days aboard their first power catamaran, the Prestige M48, at Port Ginesta in Spain later this month as part of a big showcase for Group Beneteau boating brands.

It follows the power cat’s debut alongside the Prestige X60 at last month’s Cannes Yachting Festival, as previously noted on

Taller than others of its kind on the market, the M48 has a deep bridge deck linking the two hulls, promoting a similar look and feel as a monohull below deck.

The results are generous, brightly lit refined living spaces and full beam cabins, affording the ultimate in comfort.
