Affordable Luxury

Affordable luxury: A beautiful combination of words. And Prestige, Jeanneau’s line of motor yachts, is the epitome of this appealing term. On this post, we are going to focus on the Prestige 500s Express yacht; 50′ of value and comfort.

The Prestige 500s features two staterooms, a guest room with twin beds and a portlight, an electric garage door opener for your dinghy, teak surfaces, a sunroof, washer/dryer combo, and a galley in the aft of the salon so that no one has to miss out on the fun!

How do the makers of this gorgeous yacht manage to keep it at such an affordable range? They knew precisely where to use alternative materials that are more durable than their expensive counterparts. Prestige has utilized keen design and material utilization methods to enhance the look and durability of this yacht without the added expense usually associated with other high-cost materials.

Among the other noteworthy features of this luxurious yacht is ample railing, a retractable passerelle, a bow thruster even with the IPS (which helps with med-mooring situations), lots of windows, dual-opening aft sliding doors, a breakfast nook table in the master stateroom, and a generator included in the standard model.
