Sneak Peek Of The New 42' Prestige In The Test Tanks!

As our plane descended into Nantes on June 23, 2014, Jennifer and I felt excited and proud to travel to France’s 6th largest city. Prestige Yachts, built by Group Beneteau, is located in Nantes, and my first Dealer Meeting with their team was scheduled for several days during that week. Galati Yacht Sales added this outstanding brand to our already impressive line of yachts, just prior to the Miami International Boat Show.

Prestige has become a global brand with international flair and distinction, and we saw firsthand why. The meeting began with an overview of the company’s 22-year history and a discussion of their goals, strengths and passion to the yachting industry.

During the weeklong meeting, Prestige emphasized their commitment to the USA market, announcing the purchase of several U.S. boat companies, including Four Winns and Wellcraft. As their commitment continues to grow, Prestige is focused on creating an ocean going yacht with performance, design and value that matches the American market needs.

A factory tour at the end of the week provided insight to their advanced manufacturing and automation techniques. For example, seven tanks at the end of the line thoroughly test every boat prior to leaving the factory. Prestige’s process is also well documented on After the factory tour, I clearly understood how their yachts combine the perfect balance between performance and comfort.

I strongly suggest that anyone interested in boating take the time to call one of our yacht specialists today and inquire about this fabulous brand. Galati has several new models in stock for you to view and sea trial. I am confident that you will share my passion for this builder.
