The 18.7m Prestige 590 arrived this week in Hong Kong, joining the Prestige fleet and making its debut in the Hong Kong market. She is available for immediate delivery, with Asia Yachting welcoming appointments for one-on-one previews.
The elegant, French-made flybridge motor yacht was launched by Prestige in 2019, and was named a finalist in the “Best of Travel” Category at the Best of Boats Awards the same year.
The three-cabin, three-bathroom 590 is designed by Italian studio Garroni Design, with whom Prestige has a three-decade partnership. The 590 is noted for particularly deft use of space, offering a generous layout with ample areas for entertaining and relaxing; feeling somewhat larger aboard than her 18.7 metres.
Sleek exterior lines give way to an interior replete with fine furnishings, set apart by rounded edges, comfortable sofas and inviting materials.
Her understated aesthetics are set off by a layout that emphases clear sightlines, to offer an enhanced sense of freedom: in addition to the impressive, continuous windows in the wide forward hull, the interior of the 590 is amplified with oversized windows and direct access to the wrap-around cockpit bar. Meanwhile, the side door near the helm station provides easy access to the exterior.
Record pace of sales for Prestige 520
Despite the impact that Covid-19 is having on the global market, Asia Yachting has also announced consecutive sales of the 16.11m Prestige 520 in Q2 2020, marking a record sales pace for Prestige since the partnership with Asia Yachting began in 2017.
“We are extremely proud of this sales momentum given the current climate, and it shows that the luxury of space and the use of luxurious materials in Prestige yachts are highly recognised in much of Southeast Asia,” says Olivier Besson, CEO of Asia Yachting.
The healthy demand for yacht delivery and transport in Hong Kong offers a stark contrast to current global trends amid the ongoing pandemic. In a recent interview with Asia-Pacific Boating, Charles Massey, head of Sevenstar Yacht Transport’s Hong Kong office, confirmed that Hong Kong is now the top destination for deliveries in Asia “by a long way”, and may well be the number one destination in the world for its size.
