The all-new Maritimo Yachts X50 delivers on class-leading fuel economy and range. Plus, high-speed cruising functionality and the latest technology available. The X50 was designed with an obsessive consideration of drag reduction creating maximum efficiency in the hull profile. In addition to the trademark X series aft accommodation, the new X50 has two large staterooms and ensuites in the forward accommodations. From its race infused bloodline, the X50’s powerful exterior form blankets an innovative yet simplistic functional web of expansive customizable arrangements and advanced design features.
Excellence at sea defines Prestige Yachts 520S. This 52-foot coupe has stunning character features that set this vessel apart from any yacht on the market of its class. Her powerful hull is designed for optimal propulsion, dependable high performance, and provides excellent handling at sea. The 590S features a generous interior volume that enables you to live in your private suite with separate access to the master stateroom. Along with room for family and friends in the VIP stateroom and the third stateroom with twin bunks. The Prestige 520S is a sport-chic yacht designed for high-speed performance and luxury living.

The combined experience of Prestige Yachts design team and Jernej Jakopin helped to design a highly perfected hull in the Prestige 420 Flybridge. It effectively combines a large interior volume, a safe and comfortable sea passage, and reflects the initial requirements and the desire to integrate an IPS on this size of the boat; offering exceptional maneuverability. The 420 FB creatively combines the open and bright space on the main deck with the very private spaces of the two cabins with separate entrances. The whole yacht offers ergonomics and a particularly neat atmosphere.
