Prestige, a leading brand of motor yachts ranging from 40 to 70 feet, launched the M48, the first model in the M-Line, the new line of power catamarans announced in September
With this new multihull yacht, Prestige takes a major step, offering an all-new experience in the art of living well. The M48 reveals generous, brightly lit, and refined living spaces, affording the ultimate in comfort. It promises life in harmony with the sea and at a gentle pace. Benefiting from an outward facing design, the M48 enables you to truly reconnect with nature and with yourself. While the M-Line features two hulls, it remains true to the heritage of Prestige with optimized interior and exterior layouts, an absolute priority for the M48.
This 50-foot catamaran affords an interior volume equivalent to that of a 60-foot motor yacht. The deck surface – now rectangular – allows for an optimized layout. Vast zones for relaxation on the deck and flybridge have been reconfigured. The bow also presents an increased surface area. The bottom of the hull and the central part were positioned to offer the best balance between livable space and seaworthy qualities.
The M48 benefits from a wider beam than a monohull motor yacht of equal length, allowing for a full-beam owner’s suite, as well as entirely unique guest cabins. The aft cockpit is perfectly designed for comfortable entertaining, favoring gatherings and warm exchanges with two tables, one of which unfolds to create an immense tabletop able to accommodate up to eight guests. Optimal equipment, including an icemaker and numerous spacious storage lockers, enhances the comfort of all on board.
The electric aft platform lowers to a position flush with the twin transom platforms. In this position, the versatile aft platform forms an immense, 6-meter-wide terrace, capable of serving as a tender lift, a beach club or cockpit terrace. A vast storage locker enables the stowing of diverse nautical equipment on board. The stairway to the flybridge is at a very comfortable 45° angle. The cockpit affords direct access to the interior and the 22-square-meter saloon.
The galley, positioned to the starboard side of the saloon, services the cockpit through a window which opens fully, flush to the roof. She features a generous U-shaped countertop complemented by a buffet and storage lockers optimized for cruising. This central location facilitates the flow of movement between the cockpit and saloon.
To starboard, eight people can be seated on U-shaped bench seating around the teak table and enjoy, close at hand, a fully equipped bar. Aft, a vast modular sun pad provides the perfect place to soak in the sun. For safety on board, stainless steel handrails define the space, and a large windscreen shields the crew from sea spray. The entire forward area of the flybridge can also be protected by a full-beam hard top (optional).
M/Y Simull with her dynamic and chic silhouette, generous living space, three elegant en-suite cabins, including a full beam master’s cabin, and with the Sport Flybridge makes her an absolute yacht for your holiday!
Facing the sundeck, a 5-meter-wide bow lounge features, between the hulls, a large, plush, U-shaped sofa with a removable table. This clever layout, which allows easy access to the anchor windlass and storage lockers – fenders, cleats – facilitates handling and docking maneuvers. The skipper cabin is configured in the forward bows, with a berth on one side and a head compartment on the other.
A dedicated owner’s cabin offers a true suite, measuring 5 meters wide, with an impressive total surface area of 18 square meters. This cabin features a king-size master bed and exceptional storage options, as well as private access to a connecting bathroom with separate shower on the port side of the cabin and a separate toilet with sink on the starboard side.
This exceptional layout affords the option of two identical guest cabins boasting queen-size beds, each of which may be converted into two single beds, facing the sea. Each cabin benefits from direct access to its own private bathroom.
The reduction in rolling is remarkable, as much at anchor as while cruising, and at any speed, since the hull of a catamaran does not need to plane to gain stability. The design and propulsion of the M48 greatly facilitate handling. While access to the bow is oft en constricted on traditional motor yachts, aboard the M48, the sidedecks are twice as wide as those of a motor yacht of equal length.
Finally, the M48 features two engines spaced relatively far apart from one another, which constitutes an incredible advantage. With the Volvo joystick and twin engines, one in each hull, the M48 boasts extremely intuitive handling while docking. At port or at anchor, it is easy to pivot and maneuver yacht with full peace of mind. The performance of the M48 has been optimized for a cruising speed of between 8 and 18 knots, with a propulsion provided by 2 x 320 HP with the top speed of 20 knots.
