Jeanneau Prestige 450

An impressive master cabin on a 45-footer separates this boat from the competition

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.

  • Generous accommodation in a sub-50ft boat
  • Superb visibility


  • Creaking interior woodworks
  • Non self-parking wipers
  • Small engine hatch that doesn't quite open vertically

Price as reviewed:



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