All about Prestige 38 model
2 cabins, two cockpit saloons, stowage space large enough to fit an inflated dinghy, two 320hp diesel engines, and a large sun deck. How big must a cruiser be to fit all these features?
Launched in 2008, Jeanneau Prestige 38 (12m) is available in two versions: hardtop and flybridge. Sleek, very sleek even; it exudes Italian vibes!
This sprinkling of chic and sporty Italian style most likely originates from the Garroni naval architecture firm, where the father and son duo design all Prestige boats. This boat is full of original ideas, demonstrated by the hard top equipped with an electric sunroof so you can sail with the wind in your hair.
The entire aft sun deck lifts up and provides enough space to store a fully-inflated dinghy! The dinghy issue often arises on boats of this size; either you can leave it at home which is far from practical, or you can leave it lying around on the foredeck.
The interior of the Prestige 38 is just as stunning: a generously-sized light and airy saloon leads onto a fully-equipped galley, while the forward cabin, which wouldn't look out of place on a much larger boat, features an island bed. The aft cabin, which usually suffers the most in terms of layout, has a large porthole which brings light and brightness.
Equipped with two 640hp diesel engines, Prestige 38S is powerful and capable of hitting a top speed of 35 knots. Packed with all these qualities, it's hardly surprising that the Prestige 38 was a great success.
