Take Delivery in Europe!

Have you ever thought of discovering the wonders of Coastal France, Spain, Italy or Corsica? Have you thought of chartering a boat in the Mediterranean but decided that you would rather do this on your own yacht? Have you looked at shipping your current Yacht to Europe and then shipping it back to America?

If you have thought of one or several of the ideas above but never did it because it seemed too complicated, we have a suggestion: Buy your new Prestige Yacht and ask for a delivery in Europe!

I had to the opportunity to delivery a brand new Prestige 680 to Mr H in Les Sables-d’Olonne, a seaside town in western France. Mr H plans on cruising around the Mediterranean over the next three months and then have his boat shipped back to the west coast of Florida. This was the second time around for Mr H who had cruised his Prestige 620 around the Med nearly 3 years ago! It gets better and easier every time!

The entire process was extremely seamless! All the necessary paperwork and setup was taken care of by Prestige Yachts America, their American dealer, and a company that specializes in European cruising for foreigners. If you are interested in the awesome way of discovering Europe, contact your dealer now and ask them about this possibility that Prestige Yachts offers! What are you waiting for??!


Summer Adventures on our Prestige 560: Part 1

This blog chronicles the boating adventure of the Rubin family in July, 2017. Casting off in Baltimore with Boston as the destination and many stops along the way.

It’s finally almost here – the trip we’ve been planning for months and dreaming about for years. In the last few weeks, we kind of lost our minds and decided to buy our lifetime dream boat, a Prestige 560 Fly. We knew we would do this some day, and decided what better time than right before our 3 week boat trip to Boston? We named the boat Sababa, a Hebrew word that indicates that things could not be better, and with a boat like this, and this upcoming trip with my family, that’s how I feel!

Over the last six months, we mapped out an itinerary with several key milestones that include poker and shopping in Atlantic City along with dinner with Aliya and Dan from NJ at Buddakan, a “drive by” to waive at the Jays on the NJ shore, a play on Broadway (School of Rock), pizza (vegan for some) in Mystic, Ct, visiting Amy & Michael (Ann’s brother and family) in Providence, Martha’s Vineyard, biking in Nantucket, touring Falmouth on Cape Cod, and the highlight of our trip: stopping in Boston for two nights to visit Tamara at Camp Young Judea in New Hampshire during visiting day; and let’s not forget, Peter Lugar’s with Cousins Kenny and Laurie in Brooklyn on the way home. Finally, we may be joined by the Geva boys in Brooklyn for the final stretch back to Baltimore. Click for our full itinerary.

Day 1: Baltimore to Cape May, NJ

I woke up just after 6:00 a.m. this morning full of adrenaline. Months of planning, so many details, an unexpected new boat that we could not have even imagined buying a month ago, and the time had finally arrived. I did not want to wake up Ann, so I stayed in bed for about 15 minutes, but then I had to get moving. With everyone sleeping, I took care of some details – moved the water hose from the dock to the boat, put our empty luggage in the crew quarters, which we use as storage, removed the remaining covers from the bow and stowed them, and secured the galley. At around 6:50, I woke up Elana, and we went for a 2 mile run along the inner harbor. Beautiful morning, and lucky for me, I am still able to keep up with her – barely.

When we got back, Ann was already up and having breakfast. Elana and I took showers, and I started getting the boat ready. Turned on the generator; pulled the power cords and stowed them; turned on all the electronics; turned on the main engines; plugged in our route to the chart plotter, and we were ready to go. Benny was still sleeping, so Ann, Elana and I released the dock lines, brought them onto the boat, and we were off! (enable FLASH to watch this video clip)

As we pulled out of Harbor East marina, Ann and Elana brought in the dock lines and the fenders, and I piloted and navigated from the flybridge.

Heading out from Harbor East Marina
Leaving Baltimore behind us.

Our route this morning was 118 nautical miles. We cruised along just below 6 knots through the inner harbor area for about 15 minutes until we were ready to get on plane.

Day 1 route, through the C&D Canal

As we approached the Key bridge, I brought Sababa up to 23 knots, at 89% load on the port engine and 92% on the starboard one, and we were planing.

As we approached the Key bridge, I set a cruising speed of 23 knots.

Elana and Benny assumed the teenage position, despite all the beautiful scenery around them.

What teenagers do on a boat.

We followed the shipping channel up to the Elk River, which connects the Chesapeake to the C&D Canal. I had timed our departure to hit the Delaware River at 12:30, and despite some no wake speed in the C&D, we arrived about 15 minutes early, which was just fine. Water in the Delaware River and the Bay was as calm as can be. I had heard many stories of the rough waters there, and so it was with great relief that we had a completely smooth ride. Even as we approached Cape May, NJ and looked out on the open Atlantic Ocean, there were no waves. It was sunny and 77, and in fact, up on the bridge we had to put on sweatshirts because it felt chilly.

Our new boat, which we’ve only had for 2.5 weeks, handles great. She leaves a pretty big wake behind, and we had to be conscious of that because it really impacts other boats if we’re not careful.

Sababa has quite a wake. We almost knocked over a sailboat in the C&D Canal, so we learned to be more careful.
We saw a couple of pretty lighthouses along the way in the Delaware Bay.

Beautiful lighthouse near Cape May inlet
After leaving the Delaware Bay, we were in a no wake canal for several miles. We tried to get on plane in several stretches where it is allowed, but our wake was too big for the canal and we were knocking boats left and right, so we came down and cruised in slowly the rest of the way. We cruised into Canyon Club marina and were lucky to get a T-head to tie up to. That’s a lot easier than docking in a slip, especially because they only had finger piers with pilings, and with this new boat, I felt relieved to have an easy docking experience. I’m sure before long, I’ll have to conquer my fear of docking in an unfamiliar marina with a fixed-pier slip, but for now, floating T-head is the bomb!
So happy to dock Sababa on a floating T-head
This marina has in-slip fueling, and we filled up, putting 307 gallons of fresh diesel (capacity is 581) in the tanks, which took about 25 minutes and was not great for my always sore back. Ann took the kids to the pool, and I stayed behind and washed the boat down for about 20 more minutes.
After the pool, quick shower, and we went into town for dinner taking advantage of the free marina shuttle. Cape May is a typical ocean-front East Coast town full of salt water toffee shops, fudge stores, and unhealthy, overpriced restaurants. Fortunately, we had Yelp, and despite the eating habits of my immediate family (carnivorous me and my 3 vegans), we found a nice Mexican restaurant, where we were all happy.

After dinner, we walked around the quaint town area and along the beach. The teenagers again doing what teenagers do (although this time it was staged).

Elana and Benny see something they like
We listened to the Cape May County String Band that was playing in a park in town. Benny observed that the minimum age for being in the band must have been about 80. I got into it and started dancing!

Cape May Beach
We found a trolley in town, and since we were planning on Ubering back to the marina anyway, we figured we would just see where the trolley took us. It seemed to go in the direction of our marina, and google maps on my phone confirmed that, so we took a ride, and then walked the 1.2 miles back to our marina. Totally exhausted when we got back.

Tomorrow, we have a 38 mile ride to Atlantic City. It will be my first time piloting a boat on the open ocean. Forecast calls for 80 degrees and 10-15 knot winds. Waves around 2 feet. That sounds pretty good, and Sababa should give us a pretty smooth ride. Looking forward to playing some poker at the Borgata and having dinner with our friends Alia and Dan! The kids and I are going to skip the morning run, as we are pretty sore from today’s adventures.

So far, the trip is off to a great start! Can’t believe it’s only been one day. Feels like eternity since we were home in Pikesville, Maryland.

Prestigious Pedigree by: Capt. John Wooldridge

This article appeared in Power & Motoryacht Magazine’s May 2017 issue.

This new addition from Prestige blends contemporary styling, sterling performance, and room for a couple of families to enjoy cruising.

It’s early, but not too early, as you quietly slip out of the large double berth in the master cabin of the Prestige 630. You climb the stairs of the private entry on the starboard side and emerge into the saloon. Large windows all around give you a nearly 360-degree view of the fog-bound anchorage where you have been on the hook overnight. A glance at the electrical panel, and the feeling of a cool, dry environment on your face, confirms that the chilled-water air conditioning is functioning perfectly and that the genset is running smoothly, even if it is not immediately obvious to your ears. And even though there’s a distinct swell rolling around in the anchorage, the optional Seakeeper is silently keeping the yacht stable and steady for your family and friends—a priceless convenience.

You quietly exit the saloon through the three-panel sliding glass door, climb the teak and stainless stairs to port, and make your way forward to the flybridge helm. Powering up the twin Raymarine MFDs at the port-side helm console, you check the anchorage for other boats while a pot of coffee is brewing in the galley just to starboard and abaft your double helm bench seat. Targets on the radar remain in the same position relative to your position as when you put the yacht to bed, and this morning’s weather overlay shows a bright, clear day ahead. You open the large sunroof in the hardtop overhead and, even now, the fog seems to be thinning above the anchorage.

Grabbing a mug of coffee, you ease down onto the starboard-side double bench seat that faces forward, stretch your legs out, and exhale. This is your time, that special time of day when you can read, plan, or simply look outward, taking in the details of an interesting shoreline or tracking a distant boat on some new horizon. This is why you got into boating, and the flying bridge is in no small way a reason why the Prestige 630 was your choice for a family cruiser.

First and foremost among those reasons is the Prestige 630’s concept and design, another masterful blend of contemporary lines and comfort features from Garroni Premorel Concept, a trusted Prestige partner. You are sure the look of this boat will still be pleasing to your eyes in five or 10 years. Another one of your favorite features: the long, uninterrupted hullside windows that flood the accommodations level with light and provide great views from each stateroom. Outside, there are three distinct living areas, more than enough for some separation and privacy on longer cruises. Inside, you like the large open-plan saloon, with a galley aft and to port, and a lower helm forward and to starboard—it’s perfect for cruising when the weather is less than cooperative or comfortable.

Accommodations on the lower deck are also appealing and they include a voluminous VIP stateroom with an island double in the bow and a guest stateroom with twin berths to port, both en suite. More importantly, the full-width master stateroom has private stairway access from the starboard side of the saloon—a hallmark of the larger Prestige models. You take another sip of coffee and remember that you chose this layout because it is perfect for two families that enjoy cruising together. Even now, your best friend and his wife are sleeping in the bow, the girls are sharing the guest cabin, while the two boys have taken up residence in the crew’s quarters located aft of the engine room at the transom.

When the crew is up and about, you’ll join your mate in the galley to prepare breakfast, first opening the gas-cylinder-assisted bulkhead that swings up and locks, eliminating the barrier between the aft deck seating and the saloon. You liked the galley placement from the beginning, since it gives the chefs equal access to seating fore and aft, and because it makes meal preparation and service to both those areas—as well as to the table and L-shaped seating area situated aft on the flying bridge—relatively convenient.

Since the distance to your next planned destination is short, only a couple of hours running in open water, there will be time to get in a bit of sunbathing, maybe a quick swim off the optional hydraulic platform that lowers to make reboarding (and loading the dinghy) so much easier. Or maybe the youngsters will want one more ride on the tube, towed behind the RIB, before you secure it in place aft and raise the anchor.

I had a chance to run and evaluate the Prestige 630 recently, and I can tell you that it is one of the more comfortable yachts of its size I’ve had the pleasure to operate. Power is a pair of 725-horsepower Volvo Penta IPS 950s, which are twin D11s matched with IPS 2 pods. The engines are located aft between the crew’s quarters and the master stateroom, to create better balance for the boat on plane, as well as maximize the amount of available space below. Accessed through a door in the crew’s quarters or through a hatch on the aft deck, the engine room is truly spacious, allowing good access to engines, the optional genset, and other primary systems.

The hull is from J&J Design, with engineering by Prestige. It features a modestly raked stem that is deep enough to cut water at slower cruising speeds, but shallow enough to climb above the water at higher speeds. Three sets of lifting strakes join spray strakes that begin well forward above the waterline and morph into submerged chines just ahead of amidships, helping the Prestige 630 get on plane more quickly and effectively directing spray well away from the hullsides. The hull changes from a deep-V forward to a semi-V aft, finishing with a 16-degree deadrise at the transom. During my sea trial, the hull made for a ride that was comfortable despite the washing-machine-like water conditions.

Running on a closely spaced, 2-foot chop on a windy day on Sarasota Bay was instructive. Winds were 10 to 14 knots, gusting to over 20 knots out of the northeast—very good conditions for a series of boat-handling maneuvers. We ran south with the wind on our starboard quarter, then north on the port bow, gathering engine speed, velocity, fuel-burn, and sound measurements. The resulting numbers conformed very closely to the performance figures furnished by Prestige, and handling on all points was superb—which you should expect from the fly-by-wire, hydraulic power-assisted steering that is standard with Volvo Penta’s IPS system. It is important to point out that the boat I tested, which was Hull No. 2, was loaded with options that might have affected performance, but did not in my view.

There is so much that will appeal to a cruising family in this design. On the flying bridge, there’s a massive sunpad ahead of the twin forward-facing benches. The back cushion of the port-side bench removes to fill in the footspace and enlarge the sunpad. An optional hardtop with sunroof allows the owners to choose just how much sun they want. The upper helm can house two Raymarine Glass Bridge gS165 displays (although it looks like you might be able to mount another one, duplicating the three displays at the lower helm), with ample room remaining for engine controls, joystick, system switches, and auxiliary control panels. The outdoor galley­—with grill, sink, and small refrigerator—is standard; an ice maker is optional.

In the cabin, the layout is also family-friendly. With the galley aft (plus a bar to starboard across the aisle) and the dining area for six to eight people ahead of it on the port side, there is a lot of comfortable seating amidships with great views for everyone. (That effect is achieved by lowering the bottom of the window profile). Power-opening windows improve natural ventilation in the saloon. There’s also a small bench seat to starboard and abaft the helm, with a space behind it that can be fitted with an optional flatscreen TV on a lift—movie nights are often on a cruising family’s agenda.

The lower helm has its own dedicated power window, plus desirable features like a fully adjustable double bench seat and tilt wheel that make it easy for the captain to operate the boat whether he is standing or sitting. The wide, stitched, dark helm console knocks down glare effectively, and it houses three 16-inch Raymarine displays with nary a digital/analog instrument in sight. Additional stitched covering is used on the starboard extension that holds the IPS joystick, bow thruster control, and twin engine binnacle—they’re all within easy reach of the wheel. If you have ever spent any time in rough, open water, you will appreciate the handrails that help you up and down from the helm bench, as well as down the companionway to the accommodations forward.

The Prestige 630 falls towards the upper end of a lineup that spans from 42 to 75 feet, but it has the look and feel, as well as the carefully crafted details, of its much larger sisterships. If you’re in the market for a well-found family cruiser, it deserves your attention and inspection.

Prestige 460 by: Jason Wood

This article originally appeared in the June issue of Power & Motoryacht Magzine

New new new is what the market seems to want—indeed, demand—these days. After all, last week’s thing is not going to be the next big thing. And it’s only become more pronounced since the global financial crisis has turned into a combination of opportunity and why wait? Many boatbuilders have kept a laser-like focus on developing new models so they’ll  have a shot at creating the next “next big thing.”

Hardly. Prestige is following a path similar to that of some other builders. It’s making more hay with the initial investment in engineering and design. The best part: The management team at Prestige makes no bones about it—as in, there is no attempt at deception. They understand that it just makes sense not to start from the ground up every time a new model is to be produced.

The Prestige 460 is a rebirth, if you will, based on the very bones of the 450 Fly, a model introduced in 2013 that got a lot of things right in her two-stateroom, two-head layout. The 450 ran well and topped out at around 31 knots in our sea trial. Her layout had a galley aft, so it could easily service the cockpit or saloon. And best of all, the 450 had aspirations (delusions?) of superyacht grandeur, with a separate stairway entrance to the amidships master.

The 460 builds on the same hull as the 450, and the flybridge mold is the same, too. However, the deck mold changed and with it the living space grew a bit, as I was shown by Adrien Berton, Product Marketing Manager for Prestige, who pointed out the details and earnestly explained the thought process. “The cockpit is wider,” he said, showing me where the space was gained, “and the L-shaped bench is farther aft.” There was one surprise, where the 460 takes the superyacht aspirations further: crew’s quarters aft. “The crew cabin was a request from the dealers,” Berton says, “as was easy access forward to both side decks.”

In the interior, the saloon area is longer with a dinette to port and a loveseat to starboard, abaft the helm station. A companionway forward is slightly offset to starboard.

In the amidships master, the berth is situated longitudinally, and offset a bit to port. Best of all, that new deck mold means there are no steps in the overhead, as on the 450. Such a seemingly small change can in fact alter the whole feel of that stateroom.

“The 460 is more like a small 500 than a larger 450,” Berton said, citing another successful model in the Prestige line. And with loads of features in this proven hull, many boaters may discover the 460 will be their next big thing.

Prestige 680S Review by: Lenny Rudow

Does the Prestige 680S do enough to stand out from the 70-foot flybridge market? Alex Smith heads for the French Riviera to find out.

THE PRESTIGE 630: A STEP AHEAD – By Patrick Sciacca


“Prestige Yachts crunches the numbers on its 630 to create a sporty, stylish performer with a think-different attitude.” Patrick Sciacca, Editor-in-Chief, Yachting Magazine

Steps. They are a means of ­transporting someone, or something, from one level to ­another. Steps, as they relate to the Prestige 630, transport a yachtsman from a craft that runs through the water to one that feels like it’s ­floating above it. But these aren’t steps in the ­traditional sense; they are a build technique that lowered the 630’s center of gravity considerably. That, in turn, created the vessel’s pillow-soft ride. How did it happen without compromising the build? A lot of math.

To create the interior volume and nearly 7 feet of headroom throughout the yacht without steps, the 630 would have needed its three decks stacked at a height stretching to about 12 feet. That would have made for a tender-riding yacht. To solve this problem, Prestige added steps: areas hidden above the salon headliner where the ­superstructure drops about 1½ feet per section, all strategically placed. Where each step occurs, build material is overlapped, beefed up and reinforced to help distribute force incurred underway.

Prestige’s 630 has a length overall of 62’5″ and a max beam of 16’4″

An added benefit is the reduction of material ­required to keep the 630 sturdy and stout while taking out weight. When you remove weight, you require less horsepower to propel the yacht. When you need less horsepower, you need less fuel. When you put those two things together, you get optimized performance and a vessel with longer range, faster speed and improved handling.

There’s one step in the salon. Another is at the galley aft, and another is where the interior meets the cockpit door. This keeps the headroom consistent, eliminating the feeling of ducking down. And when you remove that foot-plus of height out of each step, you’ve reduced overall vessel height by about 5 feet. Hence, the lower center of gravity. The natural low profile of the yacht, plus the optional Seakeeper gyro, makes the 630 a vessel that’s as stable as a table underway.

I know because when I ran our test 630’s fully ­infused, cored-sandwich hull out of Sarasota, ­Florida, there was nothing that 20 knots of wind, waves or wakes could do to dissuade the yacht from her appointed duty. She soldiered on, unfazed.

Yes, we are all members of the sunblock-evrything-before-you-leave-club, but sometimes it just feels good to have the warm rays hitting your face while you’re cruising across the salt on a beautiful day – UVA and UVB rays be dammed. Prestige Yachts understands this. When the builder envisioned the hardtop for the 630, it made sure the majority of the length included a retractable section, allowing the helmsman and his guests to enjoy fun in the sun. If you live in a mostly rain-free area,there is a 630 sans hardtop, with just a radar arch.
If you look at the overhead closely, you’ll see where the builder inserted the steps to reduce overall vessel height and maintain headroom.

My 630 was powered with twin 725 hp Volvo Penta IPS950s, which shined. The engines pushed my 54,470-pound (dry weight) test yacht across the water at an average top hop of 29.9 knots. The motors burned 70 gph and turned 2,550 rpm, within 50 rpm of their rated maximum of 2,500 rpm. Her fly-by-wire steering was real-time responsive, turning 360 degrees in about two boat lengths. She had a sporty feel for a 63-footer too, helped in part by the moderate setting programmed into the IPS drives. (The builder can set the rate of turn for the pod drives to the best fit for the yacht.)

Dialing the motors back to 2,250 rpm put the vessel into a steady 24-knot cruise with the diesels consuming 52 gph. With a 713-gallon fuel capacity, that translates into a range greater than 340 nautical miles at cruise speed, with a 10 percent reserve.

The sea trial was admirable, made even a bit more impressive when you consider that several straight-shaft-powered peers need up to 1,150 hp to achieve the same performance numbers while burning more fuel. The impact of those steps is evident again.

And I can’t overstate the effect the steps have on the yacht’s interior spaces. The unobstructed salon stretches from the sliding cockpit doors to the helm, all the way forward to starboard. In between the cockpit and salon to port is the galley aft with three-burner Bosch cooktop, Miele microwave/convection oven and dishwasher. The galley serves guests both inside and outside with a flip-up window to the cockpit. Open up the sliding doors, and the 630’s entertainment area stretches about two-thirds the length of the yacht. So don’t be shy with the party invites.

Raymarine electronics with these stylish flush-mount displays are all standard on board the Prestige 630

Those guests will have room to lounge in the salon with an L-shaped settee to port, a chair and another settee for three. All are within earshot of the helm, which has a bench-style seat that can flip up to a bolster for stand-up driving. The settees and chair are made of a synthetic PVC material for durability in the saltwater environment, but Prestige can accommodate owners who prefer a different fabric or leather.

There are two interior wood options for the 630: gray oak soles with wenge accents, or wenge soles with gray oak accents. Either way, the feeling you get walking into the yacht is clean and modern.

The same description holds for the master stateroom, accessed to starboard via its own stairway from the salon. Just eight steps down, the room opens up to full beam (16 feet 4 inches). And above the head of the berth is the step from the salon to galley level on the main deck. As in the salon, the headroom here can accommodate your NBA-playing friends. A hanging locker can handle the most challenging clotheshorse for your week or longer sojourn. The master has an en suite head plus a settee to port for rainy days on the hook with a good book, and a vanity to starboard when prepping for a nice dinner ashore at your favorite port of call.

The cut-down shape of the windows adds to the 630’s exterior aesthetic and enhances views from aboard

Rounding out the accommodations is a forepeak VIP stateroom with step-up berth and vanity, and a third stateroom abaft to starboard. Both of these guest staterooms are en suite. The third stateroom has twin berths that can slide together to make a double. Interestingly, when the berths are combined, the end table between them disappears, but a new one that is under the inside berth appears.

A crew cabin is accessed via the yacht’s swim platform. Most American buyers will likely be owner-operators, instead using this space for gear or toy stowage.

The Prestige 630 has a story much deeper than her 3-foot-3-inch draft. She is a tale of a builder constantly striving to improve: to maximize every extra inch of available space and then some, to optimize every ounce of speed, and to wrap all that functionality and performance in a vessel that exudes substance, style and comfort.

It’s a lot of math, and the numbers add up to excellence for this voyager.

Every picture tells a story. This one says the Prestige 630 is a family-friendly voyage

The Prestige 750, Flagship of the Prestige Range

The Prestige 750 glides across Sarasota Bay as part of last month’s Sea and Shore event.

Step aboard the Prestige 750 and it quickly becomes evidently clear that you’ve just stepped aboard a serious yacht. With an overall length of 74 feet and a displacement of just over 91,000 pounds, the Prestige 750 may not quite be a super yacht, but she’s close.

Designed by the team at Garroni Design, the Prestige 750 features a large open floor plan, big vertical windows for plenty of light, and an overall atmosphere that is grand for sure but at the same time elegantly simple.

The main salon resembles that of a modern Manhattan apartment with great open spaces and plenty of natural light

“The Prestige 750 stands out as an efficient, luxurious yacht that’s pushing into the realm of super yachts at a reasonable price tag of around $4 million. If it could be said that a yacht exudes confidence, then this one definitely would be on that list.” Zuzana Prochazka, Boats.com

A distinguishing feature on the Prestige 750 is the master stateroom which is located forward on the main deck, something that’s rarely seen on yachts under 100 feet. Because there is so much volume in the forward part of the hull, owners enjoy a full-beam master suite that’s only two steps down and forward of the main salon.

The master cabin located all the way forward is completely private from the rest of the living accommodations and require no stairs to climb or descend to access.

“Prestige did a great job with the 750. She’s a comfortable motoryacht with good seakeeping ability, in an exotic yet subtle and manageable package. “The Modern Boating Family” will surely notice her style, economy, and performance. Her minimalist crew requirements will have others looking as well.” Scott Shane, Power & MotorYacht

The flybridge on the Prestige 750 offers the best of the best for true outside living

“Topside, the flying bridge has a second control station along with a huge sunpad that can be converted easily to a guest bench seat, all forward of the outdoor grill and galley console and a large dining and seating area. An electrically actuated sun shade in the hardtop provides even more sunning options here.” Chris Kelly, BoatQuest.com

All and all, there’s not a whole lot not to like about the Prestige 750. It’s big, it’s bright, it’s incredibly seaworthy, it’s extremely comfortable, and it’s the flagship of the Prestige range. And, while $4,000,000 is not insignificant, compared to other yachts of this size range, it’s truly a great price for a yacht of this magnitude.
