Prestige 750 Flybridge


If you are looking for a boat that has ample entertaining space or one to cruise with your family and friends then this is a great boat for you. The Prestige 750 has exceptional exterior and interior living space as well as a layout that affords privacy, safety, and ease of movement on board.


The galley is aft, which is a current trend. By having an aft galley it allows for the cook to easily socialize and serve the dining area, salon, and aft deck. The galley is L-shaped allowing for ample counter space as well as a way to separate the galley from the salon. The galley also features an island that allows for two people to easily work in the galley at the same time. To the starboard is the dining area. This dining area can sit six to eight people. Having a stand-alone table is something that is rarely seen on a yacht this size.


The salon on the Prestige 750 has a very open feel. This openness facilitates a two-way flow through the boat as well as providing room when there are a lot of guest on board. The salon features three sofas and an ottoman that can seat eight people comfortably. It also has a flat screen TV that is on an electronic lift. The lower helm is conveniently located on the other side of the salon. This allows for the captain to easily socialize with guests while underway.


A unique feature of the Prestige 750 is the main deck master stateroom. This is a feature that is rarely found on motor yachts below 100 feet. Similarly, to larger boats the master is forward of the salon with a private companionway entrance. The master stateroom features a king sized bed, a lounger and nice sized walk-in closet to port and desk to starboard that doubles as a vanity. The master head highlights a large shower stall and doublewide sink.


Below deck there are three staterooms and two heads, plus crew quarters abaft the engine room. The VIP stateroom is full beam and would be the master stateroom on most boats this size. The VIP stateroom on the Prestige 750 features a walk-in closet, a desk/vanity, ample storage on the port side and under the bed, and lots of natural light from the opening port lights. The VIP also has its own private head that features a diffused-drain basin and shower. Forward of the VIP stateroom are the two other guest staterooms. These two staterooms share a head and are nearly identical. They both feature twin berths with hull side windows.

As mentioned earlier the Prestige 750 has exceptional exterior living space. To begin, it has a hydraulic swim platform that is perfect for lounging by the water while at anchor. Just up from the swim platform is the aft deck.  The aft deck is rather large making it a great place to socialize and enjoy the yacht. It features an aft bench and a table that can be used for dining. Also on the aft deck are stairs leading to the flybridge.


The flybridge on the Prestige 750 has an open layout that makes it a great entertaining space. The helm has a doublewide seat and a fixed pod with complete instrumentation and functionality. To the starboard of the helm is seating for three to four people so they can easily socialize with the captain and look forward to enjoy the adventure. Behind this seat is a sun pad that is protected from the wind while underway. The flybridge on the 750 also has a U-shaped settee that is perfect for entertaining and dining. Opposite to the settee is a console area that can house a refrigerator, ice maker, sink, and grill. The aft area on the flybridge is large enough that it can accommodate a tender.


Whether you are looking for a boat to entertain or for cruising with your family and friends, this boat is a good match for both. The open concept allows for comfortable entertaining and the staterooms and amount of outdoors space make it a great choice for families.

Boat Show and Stop Off And Drop Off

Origianlly Published By: Captain Ed


The end of October tends to bring an end to the sport fishing season for us. With the boat back in its home slip at Pasadena Yacht club, We have begun fixing everything we broke last season and generally doing a good fall cleaning for the boat.

The end of October also means the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show or FLIBS.  The boat show is the largest of its kind and an amazing thing to see. I spent two days at the show.  I enjoy going to the FLIBS to see new products that have come onto the market and lets face it, its cool just to see that many boats all in one place. There are thousands of boats crammed into a relativly small area. Walking through the show, it is incredible how many fellow boat crews you run into. I don't think I walked 50 yards without seeing a crew from a boat that I knew.

One of my goals at the show was to find any display or vender that would be interested in displaying one of the posters that Capt Barb Evans and I had printed for the Stop off and drop off campaign. The posters basically are a reminder to any and all boat crews that will be leaving the states over the next few months headed for the Caribbean that they should consider  stopping by Home depot or Lowes and pick up a few rebuilding supplies that they can drop off as the head south through the Bahamas. Stop Off and Drop Off is the meant to help the islanders of the central Bahamas rebuild in the coming months since the Hurricane. We are not asking for donations. We are just asking that each boat that heads through the central Bahamas grabs a few boxes of nails or a sheet or two of ply wood. If 10 boats carried one sheet of plywood to San Salvador or Rum or Long Island, That would put a roof on one house. Of course it would be nice to carry more if you can. From what I have heard, there have already been 15 boats that have Stopped off and dropped off. We all have to stop at one of those islands as we head south, and a few marinas such as Riding Rock are offering free dockage if you drop some stuff off.  Capt Barb and I walked the show handing out the posters and got a tremendous response. Thanks to all the vendors that are supporting the effort and a special thanks to Carey Chen for donating the art work for the poster and helping to push the effort.

My brother Tom Thompson is working with the newly reformed Bertram company. They had a booth at the FLIBS and had drawings of the first boat they are producing. They are getting a great response on the first new Bertram with will be a 35 foot Moppie styled boat. They have plans to go up in size from there. Seems like they are trying to return to their American roots.

Maritimo Now All Things To All Boat Owners

Media Release- November 5, 2015



Leading luxury cruiser manufacturer Maritimo has just completed a major upgrade of its Hope Harbour based Marina, Travel lift, Service Centre and Shipyard and can now provide a one-stop shop for boaties with craft ranging from trailer boats  up to 70 ton mega yachts.



Maritimo’s General Manager of Operations , Phil Candler, said the Hope Harbour facility was perfectly located on the northern Gold Coast and boat owners did not have to travel the extra distance up the Coomera River.



“Being at the southern end of the Sanctuary Cove Resort we are easy to get to and with the 70 ton travel lift and under cover marina berths we can accommodate some serious sized boats,” he said.



“We have the capability to do antifouling, full hull resprays, all electrical work, engineering, varnishing, cabinetry, boat refits, electronics upgrades, upholstery and fiberglass  repairs.



“We are registered agents for MerCruiser and Volvo Penta  and the team that we have assembled at Hope Harbour is second to none in the industry.”



The Maritimo shipyard team can arrange the service  of engines and generators, supply davit systems, hydraulic swim platforms and undertake vessel detailing.



Mr. Candler said Maritimo had appointed  Mr Gary Klein as  Hope Island  Service and Shiplift Manager.



“Gary has come from running his own successful business  and fully understands the customers expectations in a service based industry,” said Mr Candler. “He has a great team of highly skilled staff and contractors headed up by Peter McGrath , who are on  hand  to work on all   types of vessels.”



Mr Klein said the location of the Maritimo facility was one its  biggest draw cards.  “We  are wind and tide protected and that makes it easy  for boats of all sizes to access the marina and the travel lift,” he said.  “ Many people are not aware that this facility is available to the general boating public, but we are going to change that. “We are going to be competitive in the market place and we have a team of highly skilled and professional people here who can provide advice on any aspect of boat maintenance and upkeep.”



The Maritimo facility has hardstand capacity for thirty  vessels with  several under cover sheds for major work that requires weather protection. “We also  have  a significant marina with covered berths and abundant car parking for boaties working on the vessels or having work undertaken,” said Mr Klein.
