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 Afloat.ie.

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.

The new Prestige X60 has been awarded the prize for Best Innovation of the Year 2022 at the prestigious World Yachts Trophies ceremony during the Cannes Yachting Festival.

“This award, two years after the X70 won the award for Best Layout, illustrates once again the savoir-faire of Prestige and the unique, revolutionary design of the X-LINE,” the leading motor yacht brand said.

As previously noted on Afloat.ie, the Prestige X60 has its world debut at Cannes last month and comes with a design “guided by the core concepts of voluminous living spaces, natural light and easy flow of movement onboard”.

Leading motor yacht brand Prestige will make a double world debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival next month — presenting the Prestige X60 and M48 to the public for the first time at the show from 6-11 September.
 
The Prestige X60 comes with a design guided by the core concepts of voluminous living spaces, natural light and easy flow of movement onboard. 
 
The result is a yacht that offers an exceptional level of comfort, with multiple areas for relaxation and an entirely open ‘infinity cockpit’ that affords incredible views of the ocean and creates easy access through a large electric sliding door to the saloon.

The Prestige M48, meanwhile, is the first power catamaran from Prestige Yachts. Taller than other power cats 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, creating generous, brightly lit refined living spaces and full beam cabins, affording the ultimate in comfort.
 
Twin 320hp Volvo Penta D4s give the Prestige M48 a maximum speed of 20 knots with the reduced wet surface area of this multihull design making it 20% more efficient than a similar-sized monohull — giving a range of 250nm at 18 knots or 600nm at 8 knots from the 1,200-litre tank.

Both will make their public debut at Cannes alongside other Prestige motor yachts on display, namely the 420F, 460F, 520F and 590F. For more details get in touch with Prestige’s Irish agents MGM Boats at mgmboats.com.

Leading motor yacht brand Prestige has launched the M48 as the first model of its new M-Line.

The M48 is a luxury power catamaran described as “a major step” for the French company and is positioned as “an all-new experience in the art of living well”.

Space is of the utmost importance, with the M48 being cast as “a villa that opens onto the sea”. That means a generous, brightly lit interior with a 20sqm flybridge, and extra-large sun lounge and a volume equivalent to a 60ft yacht in a 50ft vessel.

And the inverted bow design helps “contribute to a unique and harmonious design signature”, says designer Camilo Garroni.

Visits and sea trials are scheduled in Cannes on 9-10 June, ahead of the M48’s premiere at the Cannes Boat Show in September.

Prestige’s Irish agents MGM Boats will have more details in the coming weeks.

Irish dealers MGM Boats were on hand this morning when the new Prestige X70 was launched at boot Dusseldorf today, the first in the new crossover range from Prestige Yachts.

The X70 has been developed with space, light and luxury in mind, and materials have been hand-selected to ensure exceptional fit and finish. Prestige Yachts and Garroni Design have been innovative in their use of space, enhancing circulation and optimising room on the main deck by moving the side decks to the flybridge.

"The X70 is the most innovative yacht of her category and her generation, enabling people to experience an entirely new way to live on the water", MGM's Gerry Salmon said at the launch today.

Greatly increasing the size of the cockpit has resulted in the redistribution and bringing together of interior and exterior living spaces, ensuring entertainment areas flow throughout the vessel.

The single-story nature of the X70 offers an infinite choice of main deck and cockpit layouts, and the interior is furnished with high-quality fabrics and designer furniture from prestigious brands including RODA and Duvivier.

There is also a Beach Club fully integrated into the aft platform providing further entertainment space and proximity to the water.

The X70 is the first boat to be produced in the new X-Line range from Prestige. This groundbreaking new 70-foot mini superyacht will start sea trials in early summer and then have its world debut at Cannes the following month.

This flagship yacht of the X-Line range is designed to take you where you want to go. The Volvo IPS technology provides smooth, fuel-efficient cruising with exceptional manoeuvrability.

In due course, the X70 will be joined by smaller and larger models complementing the state-of-the-art the Prestige X-Line range.
