PRESTIGE 420 inherits from their sisters

,


Designed like all the PRESTIGE boats by Garroni, this new PRESTIGE resumes the concepts that have made the success of PRESTIGE:

– A pure general line, light and timeless, discreetly incorporating the flybridge.
– Seeking balance to reconcile a large internal volume with the PRESTIGE line

 

 

An all weather HullPrestige 420

The combined experience of PRESTIGE’s design office and Jernej Jakopin helped to design a highly perfected hull. It effectively combines a large internal volume, a safe and comfortable sea passage and reflects the initial requirements and the desire to integrate an IPS on this size of boat.
The PRESTIGE 420 will indeed go further in its promises with a Volvo Penta IPS (IPS 400 and 500) engine that offers exceptional manoeuverability.
With this hull, the PRESTIGE 420 is the most efficient and most economical IPS400 offer on the market of fly boats.

Prestige 420An advance deck plan

The layout of the main deck makes life on board easy with its safe side decks, its recessed fore sunbath and its wide foredeck.
A large cockpit protected by the long flybridge is the natural extension of the interior space, giving direct access to the central galley. The 420 also has an optional hydraulic bathing platform and a gangway.

 

 

A XXL Flybridge !Prestige 420_4JML4182

The Flybridge of the PRESTIGE 420 is one of the highlights of the boat. Of an exceptional size for a 42-foot vessel, it is accessed by an overhead staircase.
This perfectly proportioned Flybridge contains all the comfort of a big boat. You will find a sunbathing, a helm station with bolster seat in the line of descent, a built-in galley (optional) and a rear lounge with a folding teak table. The surface and length of the flybridge adds a distinctly contemporary style to this 42-footer.

 

 The « Coupé » line

Prestige 420
True to the PRESTIGE spirit, the 420 also comes in a coupe version. Thanks to the large glazed electrically opened sunroof, the interior space opens at will or closes completely depending on the weather and your wishes. It transforms the saloon into a sunbath.
Powered by a Volvo Penta IPS400 or IPS500, the PRESTIGE 420S offers performance that goes with its sporty lines, and
allows a top speed of 34 knots.

 

A reinvented interior

Prestige 420Ingeniously combining the open and bright space on the main deck with the very private spaces of the two cabins with separate entrances, the whole offers ergonomics and a particularly neat atmosphere. As with all the PRESTIGE boats, the central galley ideally serves the saloon and the cockpit.

The raised saloon offers a 360° view, even when sitted. Its position allows it to accommodate 6 people easily around a large folding and electrically lowered table (optional). This table converts into a double bed. This position also makes it possible to be with the pilot when under way.
Prestige 420Unique on a 42-footer, both stairways each serve privatly each cabin. The main cabin has a large area with plenty of storage space and its independent head with separate shower. The fore cabin features a differently fitted volume, with a head with direct day access.
This exclusive PRESTIGE fitting-out is an absolutely unique feat on a 42-footer. It makes the Prestige 420 the only flybridge boat on the 40-foot market with a wide body central cabin and independent access.

 

 

Prestige 420

 

In 2015 PRESTIGE will celebrate its 25th anniversary! 25 years of conquest, establishing a global network of dealers, launching yachts from 40 to 75 feet, and 25 years of success with over 3,500 boats sold.

PRESTIGE 420 hérite de l’ADN de ses grandes soeurs !

,


Le cabinet Garroni a dessiné cette nouvelle PRESTIGE 420, comme il l’a fait pour tous les modèles de la marque depuis 25 ans. Ce vedette mise sur le succès des versions PRESTIGE précédentes, à savoir :

– Une ligne pure, légère et intemporelle, intégrant harmonieusement un flybridge

– Des grands volumes intérieurs très équilibrés

 

Une Carène très aboutie et une manœuvrabilité extraordinaire

 

Le travail d’équipe entre le bureau d’étude de PRESTIGE et de Jernej Jakopin permet d’offrir un grand volume intérieur, un passage Prestige 420dans la mer sûre et confortable tout en d’intégrant un IPS sur cette taille de bateau.

 

La PRESTIGE offre une motorisation Volvo Pen­ta IPS (IPS 400 et 500) qui lui confère une manoeuvrabilité exceptionnelle et devient, grâce à sa carène, le modèle le plus performant économique en IPS400 sur le marché des vedettes fly.

 

Le plan de pont facilite la vie à bord

 

Prestige 420L’aménagement du pont principal offre des passavants sécurisés, un bain de soleil avant encastré et une grande plage avant.

Le spacieux cockpit protégé par le long flybridge est le prolongement naturel de l’espace intérieur, donnant un accès idéal à la cuisine. La 420 peut également être équipée, en option, d’une plateforme de bain et d’une passerelle hydraulique.

 

Un flybridge exceptionnel

 

Prestige 420

Cet espace parfaitement proportionné comporte tous les aménagements de confort d’une grande vedette: bain de soleil, poste de pilotage avec siège bolster dans l’axe de descente, cuisine intégrale (option) et salon arrière avec une table en teck rabattable.

Prestige 420Le Flybridge de la PRESTIGE 420 est un des atouts majeurs de cette vedette. D’une taille exceptionnelle pour un bateau de 42 pieds, on y accède par un escalier aérien.

 

La surface et la longueur du flybridge ajoute un style très moderne.

 

La version « Coupé »

 

Prestige 420La PRESTIGE 420 est également proposée dans une version « coupé » avec un grand toit électrique vitré, permettant d’ouvrir ou de fermer à loisir l’espace intérieur. Selon la météo et vos envies, vous pourrez alors transformer ou non le salon en un très agréable bain de soleil.

Motorisée en Volvo Penta IPS400 ou IPS500, la PRESTIGE 420S offre des performances en phase avec sa ligne sportive. Elle peut atteindre une vitesse maximale de 34 nœuds.

 

Un nouvel intérieur optimisé

 

Mêlant avec génie l’espace ouvert et lumineux du pont principal avec les espaces très privés des deux cabines aux entrées séparées, Prestige 420l’intérieur bénéficie d’une ergonomie et d’une ambiance particulièrement soignées.

Comme sur les autres PRESTIGE, la cuisine centrale dessert parfaitement le salon et le cockpit.

Prestige 420Le salon surélevé offre une vision à 360°, même en position assise. Il permet d’accueillir 6 personnes autour d’une table repliable qui s’abaisse électriquement pour se convertir en lit double (en option). Enfin cet emplacement a l’avantage d’être à proximité immédiate du pilote pendant la navigation. Deux escaliers privatifs desservent chacune des cabines en toute intimité.

 

La cabine centrale dispose d’une vaste surface avec beaucoup de rangements et d’une salle d’eau privative avec douche séparée. La Prestige 420_3JML8434cabine avant propose une salle d’eau profitant d’un accès de jour direct. C’est donc la seule vedette flybridge du marché des 40’ ayant une cabine centrale avec un accès indépendant.
