Designed to meet the needs and expectations of luxury yachting connoisseurs, the new Prestige F5.7 elevates the experience of life on board. Living spaces are arranged to favour moments of sharing and connection, as well as preserving privacy. Faithful to the new generation of the F-Line, the F5.7 embraces cutting-edge technology, offering owners a cruising experience with unequalled ease of handling.

The F5.7 is the second model in the new generation of the F-Line and represents a significant step in terms of elegance and refinement. Each design choice, from the hull shape to each detail of fit and finish, is guided by the expression of a certain idea of life on board, for greater well-being, harmony, and serenity.

“The Prestige F5.7 continues the evolution of the brand in its new F-Line generation, offering a new interpretation of the current market trends and customer expectations. The new model positions itself within the core of the brand, the 40 to 70-foot motor yacht segment, demonstrating the constant innovative approach of Prestige,” said Prestige Vice President Erwin Bamps.

Boasting fluid, elegant exterior lines, the F5.7 features curves inspired by the movement of water – a smooth and powerful look. The deep V-shaped hull of the F5.7, designed by Michael Peters, enables this majestic 17m yacht to take to sea and cruise over the waves in comfort and safety. The slightly rounded bow improves stability. The design of the F5.7 reveals dynamic exterior living spaces that also contribute to creating well-ventilated interiors, bathed in light.

“This new F5.7 perfectly incarnates our desire to anticipate the expectations and needs of our customers, by placing ever-more innovative products on the market. The deep V-shaped hull designed by Michael Peters offers real cruising comfort, while the ocean-view galley – the heart of life on board – opens onto the cockpit in an original way, maximising the view of the ocean,” explained Prestige Product Marketing Manager Clémence Cessou.

Covered by a hardtop with an opening sunroof, the flybridge is the ideal place for gathering and features a bar and a well-equipped galley, open to elegant C-shaped bench seating and a table that can accommodate six people.

From dawn to sunset, the F5.7 offers easy access to the sea via two safe passages, to port and starboard, with just two steps down to the vast submersible aft swim platform. The bow features semi-circular bench seating around a table and a sunpad with an adjustable back-rest.

The central gathering place at the stern is functional and enjoyable

At the stern of the yacht, the cockpit is the central gathering place, with facing bench seating and a table for conversation, savouring a cocktail, or enjoying a meal with friends. An abundance of storage space makes the living area functional and enjoyable. Sheltered from the sun by a canvas sunshade, the cockpit can be transformed into a private space, perfectly sheltered from the elements.

The spacious interior saloon is bathed in natural light and offers access to the deck, as well as an exceptional 360-degree view.

“The oceanview galley is the centrepiece for entertaining, enabling perfect communication with the cockpit and offering the possibility of having a true bar counter overlooking the sea,” said F5.7 designer Camillo Garroni. “What’s more, the forward master suite, with its king-sized berth, offers a setting for privacy and relaxation, benefiting from natural light streaming through large windows in the bulkheads and ceiling of the cabin. Three cabins, three bathrooms, and a generous skipper cabin are unique features for a yacht of this size.”

The luxurious forward owner’s suite is designed for privacy

Located on a semi-main deck, this forward owner’s suite is far from the engine room and has flush floors, standing headroom, natural lighting via windows in the hull, and soft lighting from curved lines of LEDs. Fine materials, like wood and textiles in natural tones add to the luxurious charm.

Guests can enjoy a VIP cabin featuring the same refined design, a view of the sea, a comfortable queen-sized berth, a walk-in closet, and a private bathroom. The original diagonal orientation of the berth contributes a feeling of spaciousness and facilitates ease of movement. A third cabin features two single berths and a separate bathroom. A vast aft storage space may be converted, as an option, into a well-equipped skipper’s cabin with its own separate access.

With the new generation of the F-Line, Prestige has aimed to meet the demands of those experienced with high-end cruising, utilising the latest technological innovations. The onboard monitoring and assistance system, Seanapps, monitors onboard equipment and cruising data, simplifies maintenance, and all on-board functions – from the air conditioning to the bilge pump – can be monitored and controlled via the Ship Control online interface that functions like an onboard computer and is accessible from a smartphone or tablet. The Volvo IPS joystick and transmission system, supported by Garmin Surround View, make docking manoeuvres much easier.
