Prestige on show

The new M48 and X60 models from French shipyard Prestige Yachts will be on display at the 2022 Cannes Yachting Festival.

Prestige, a leading brand of motor yachts ranging from 40 to 70 feet, will showcase the M48 and X60 together for the first time at the 2022 Cannes Yachting Festival.

M48 is the first model in the M-Line, the new line of power catamarans announced in last September. With this new multihull yacht, Prestige offers an all-new experience in the art of living well.

The M48 reveals generous, brightly lit and refined living spaces, affording the ultimate in comfort. It promises life in harmony with the sea at a gentle pace.

Unique in its segment, this yacht offers unparalleled freedom of movement and stability for peaceful moments at sea. Benefiting from an outward-facing design, the M48 reconnects those onboard with nature.

“Our customers’ expectations extend to multihulls. Prestige yacht owners cruise with their families and, for the majority, without crew,” said Erwin Bamps, General Manager at Prestige.


“They particularly value the feeling of spaciousness afforded by the 360-degree view in the saloon, the extraordinarily bright interior, the optimal design of the owner’s cabin, and ease of handling of our yachts.

Today, our buyers want more luxury, space, and comfort. High cruising speed is no longer a demand – stability is, on the other hand. These have naturally pointed us to the catamaran.

“With this platform on the water, Prestige renews its promise to realize the dream of living on your own private island.”

The unique characteristics of the M48 enabled Prestige to successfully launch into this promising market.

“The M48 is a villa that opens on to the sea,” added Camilo Garroni, Designer at Prestige.

“For the M48, the objective was to offer a true powercat, well positioned in the world of yachting, with an owner’s suite worthy of that found on a 70-footer.

“Ergonomic design and flow of movement on board are redesigned, while wide side decks ensure safety on board. The cockpit is freed, the visual barriers aft have been removed in order to fully benefit from the view of the wake.

“For the design, we have chosen inverted bows, innovative for Prestige, which contribute to a unique and harmonious visual signature.”

Launched in 2021, the X-Line family of PRPrestigeESTIGE expanded with a new model, the X60. With a design concept based on voluminous living spaces, easy flow of movement and natural light, the X60 features unique architecture, clever layouts and luxurious finishes.

Following the launches of the X70 and the Prestige 690, the arrival of this new yacht of over 18 metres affirmed Prestige’s position in the market segment of large motor yachts.

Voluminous living spaces, natural light, easy flow of movement on board: these core concepts have guided the design process for the new X60.

Her architectural statement, redistributed space, multiple zones for relaxation and exceptional level of comfort onboard make the X60 the worthy heiress of the X70, flagship of the product line.

Designed for smooth, harmonious cruising, her design features a seamless connection with the sea. The architecture of the X60, by Garroni Design, is unique.

Like the X70, she reinvents space onboard, breaking with established codes with asymmetrical side decks on the main deck.

On this model, passage between the foredeck and the cockpit is via the port side deck. A side door to the interior helm offers easy access to the exterior.

This architecture permits a real gain in space, both inside and out. As on the X70, the Infinity cockpit of the X60 affords 40 percent more space than that of a classic 60-footer. It opens onto an extraordinarily spacious saloon.

The hull conserves the heritage of her big sister, with sinuous lines and energetic curves. The low centre of gravity lends the hull of the boat unequalled stability for exceptional comfort on board.

The Cannes Yachting Festival will take place from 6 to 11 September 2022.
