At the official ceremony of the European Powerboat of the Year Awards held on the 21st January 2012 in Düsseldorf, the superb Prestige 500 was awarded the title of 'Powerboat of the Year' in the category of yachts over 45 feet in length.
The award winning new Prestige 500
The annual awards celebrate the very best in boat design and construction. Selected by a jury composed of the biggest European magazines in the marine industry, this trophy is a handsome reward for the new Prestige model.
The Prestige 500 also won the trophy for 'Best Interior Design' last September at the World Yacht Trophies Awards in Cannes, France. It was also awarded 'Best Motor Yacht' at the Nautical Design Awards in Milan, the 'Best of the Best' 2011 in Hainan by the magazine the Robb Report, and was also honoured with the prestigious title of 'Motor Yacht of the Year 2012' in London in the category of yachts up to 55 feet in length.
The Prestige 500 is designed to offer multiple, comfortable living areas for the entire crew. The open cockpit, the interior saloon, the comfortable helm station and the owner's stateroom with private entrance are all designed for maximum enjoyment of the yacht and the environment.
The first Prestige 500 will be in Australia on display at the Sanctuary Cove International Boat Show in early 2012. It is also available as a sport top version, the Prestige 500s.
