TMG Yachts is now the exclusive distributor for luxury powerboat manufacturer Prestige Yachts, part of Groupe Beneteau.

17 February 2023


Prestige Yachts is now represented by TMG Yachts. Prestige is part of Groupe Beneteau, the French-based manufacturer renowned for producing four different lines of powerboats, including the world-famous F-line, the flybridge yachts, and the recently-launched M-line power catamarans. The 40- to 80-foot range also includes sports sedans and crossover vessels.

Announcing the appointment, Erwin Bamps, VP at Prestige Yachts explained, “Australia is an important yachting destination and a key market for Prestige.

“The widening product portfolio, with the recent introduction of our M-Line family of multihull motor yachts, is offering an opportunity to grow our presence in the Australasia market.

“With our partner TMG Yachts, we look forward to further expanding our existing footprint with a clear focus on customer experience and service.”

The recently launched M-line of power catamarans from Prestige has already set the standard in this segment and will be the industry reference others follow.


This new M-line rounds out a very complete offering for Prestige, which dominates the 40- to 80-foot powerboat market across the world.

The X-line with her modern trawler style and added space, courtesy of the full beam main deck interior, is a wonderful complement to the F-line, where Prestige continues to innovate and lead with their traditional sleek flybridge range.

Commenting on the partnership, John Cowpe, TMG Yachts Managing Director said, “In line with our growth strategy, we are very pleased to announce that we have accepted the opportunity to represent one of the global powerhouses in motor yacht manufacturing, in Prestige yachts.

“Prestige Yachts is headquartered in France with production on the French west coast and on Italy’s Mediterranean coast.

“These vessels are a fantastic fit for the Australian boating community.  For those wishing to explore Europe before shipping over to Australia, there are lots of exciting options available.

“The DNA of PRESTIGE sits well within our company, the French Art de Vivre (Art of Living) delivers discrete elegance.  An unpretentious yet luxurious product.  Allowing easy owner operations and delivering experiences and memories in an escape from the every day.”

Tanguy Tertrais, Sales Director Asia Pacific, said, “We strongly believe that TMG Yachts is the right partner to promote and represent the full Prestige product line in such a key market. Australia has always been a demanding market and looking for space on board, comfort, and luxury, which our F, S, X and M-Line are offering.”

The first opportunity to have a look at the Prestige range with TMG Yachts will be at the Auckland Boat Show towards the end of March.

Beyond that, TMG Yachts will host viewings at the factory in Italy and in France for interested clients. Prestige Yachts will arrive in Australia towards the end of 2023, starting with the M Line.
