It’s the same luxury we are used to see in the range, but on a smaller scale: the new Prestige 420 will debut at Cannes Yachting Festival.
Brand extension is the chance to live what a brand means, in all its range of experiences, into different segments or sectors. With the new Prestige 420 the French builder has moved the brand experience to the smaller size of 42 feet, or around 12 meters, to target a new generation of owners.
Spacious and bright, Prestige 420 reflects the values of the brand in bold yet familiar lines by Garroni Design.
This model boasts a V-Drive propulsion system that optimizes the weight balance and the onboard space. In the engine bay there’s two Cummins engines delivering 380 or 425 hp each. They can be matched with joystick and variable bowthruster to ensure easy handling and precise control when maneuvering.
The large flybridge of Prestige 420 offers dedicated zones for specific uses. There’s a full outside helm station, a galley, a large sundeck, and a dining area with a table and a U-shaped sofa. It’s the space distribution that owners expect from a yacht.
Where a larger yacht would have a crew cabin, which is redundant here, Prestige 420 sports a huge lazarette with much stowage space
To ensure the usual Prestige experience, the model offers a large forward sundeck, a hydraulic platform, and an L-shaped cockpit seating with a table in the aft cockpit.
Where a larger yacht would have a crew cabin, which is redundant here, Prestige 420 sports a huge lazarette with much stowage space, directly accessible from both the swim platform and the cockpit.
Inside, the new Prestige 420 features high-end finishes and materials. The galley opens onto the cockpit, while the U-shaped couch in the saloon, which transforms into a double berth, faces a further sofa.
Belowdecks there’s space for two cabins, both featuring windows in the hull for a bright atmosphere. The Prestige 42 room is located aft and features a central double berth and a private bathroom in a warm ambiance. The guest cabin also features a large central double berth, but we are sure it will be possible to opt for a twin-berth solution.

What is sure is that Prestige 420 can be configured to include a second bathroom for the VIP cabin or a large walk-in closet, with hanging space, shelving and even a washing machine.
Not just Cannes: the new Prestige 420 will be presented at Southampton, La Rochelle, Genoa and Barcelona’s Boat shows.
