|Prestige 550 is a Clear Winner|
At the 2014 Norwalk Boat Show, I had the unique pleasure of seeing the Prestige lineup from 40 to 62ft. The quality of these yachts, the incredible styling, and the thoughtfulness of design was not surprising all the way through the fleet. What was surprising, however, was that Prestige really nailed it on the 5's.

|Speaking of space, this kitchen on the 55' is awesome. Notice the walkout to the cockpit.|
|The multi-function head aboard the 45'|
|Popup television, anyone?|
|Innovative Step-Down Features aboard the Prestige 450|
|Master Head-Room, Anyone?|
|Positioning the bed on the centerline gives you walk-around space with stand-up headroom...|
|...and gives you a view out the port-side window when you wake up in the morning. Nice.|
|Go from the cockpit deck at sunset, past the refrigerator for a drink, then down to your master bedroom.|
|The galley occupies both sides of the salon in the Prestige 450, but doesn't interrupt flow. Clever.|

With the impending launch of the Prestige 750, Prestige will be entering a luxury yacht market that is ripe for a buyer who understands the concept of value. I picture a Silicon Valley entrepreneur selling her company and purchasing one of these to motor off into the sunset. With thoughtful choices, exceptional execution, and a fantastic value for the money, any savvy entrepreneur would have a lot in common with these yachts. Since the 750 falls on the 5's, it's bound to be a big winner.
|The Prestige 750 is sure to be a winner in the small superyacht category.|
