The Prestige M48 is distinguished by a classic motor yacht profile, rather than a typical catamaran. The high and powerful planking, the sporty roofline, and the well-integrated flybridge give the Prestige M48 a nice presence without being aggressive.
The functionalities and the volume on board offered by the Prestige M48 bring it closer to a classic 60/65 foot motor yacht, with nearly 130m2 of living space.
At 14.98m (49 feet) long, with a beam of 6m, the Prestige M48 is "relatively narrow" for a powercat, which is very beneficial when in port. It's high planking allows the nacelle to be positioned 70cms above the water, a good point when sailing, while allowing to re-imagine the layout on board, using, in particular, the space located under the floor of the nacelle.
The Prestige M48 has a 2 Volvo Penta D4 with joystick and V-Drive transmission, the IPS being justified neither from an efficiency point of view (IPS are especially efficient from 22-25 knots), nor from a maneuverability point of view, due to the spacing of the propellers and the integration of a joystick.
With a maximum speed of 20 knots, the Prestige M48 consumes 80 liters at 17 knots! At 8 knots, a speed often used on this type of motor yacht catamaran, the Prestige M48 offers a range of 600 nautical miles.
