This product is featured in: Prestige 460 to launch at the Miami Boat Show.

The next-generation Prestige range kicked off with two very impressive 50ft models, the 500 and 550, notable for some exciting thinking on master cabins. Now comes the same concept in a more affordable 45ft package.

Inspired greatly by the layout of its best selling 500, this is a unique sub-50ft aft cockpit boat in that it has two entirely separate cabin areas, each accessed by its own individual stairwell.

Price excludes VAT.

Verdict

A daring and avant-garde boat offering unique big boat accommodation to the sub-50ft market but attention to detail needs tweaking.
