History of Prestige Yachts
Prestige Yachts was branded about 30 years ago, however their roots and history date back to the 1950s. The Jeanneau shipyard was created by Henri Jeanneau back in 1957.
Henri had a passion for automobiles and airplanes, and soon developed an interest for powerboats. He built a wooden hull in Les Herbiers (France) and used it to participate in the 6 hour Paris boat race, where he won first prize!
In 1958 his shipyard built its first fiberglass hull. The hull created a technological breakthrough in the industry. The first powerboat off the shipyard´s production line was the Sea-Bird, which was first manufactured in 1963. Then in 1964 the Jeanneau shipyard also built sailboats, the first model called the Alizé.
From 1964 to the late 1980s, the Jeanneau shipyard produced sailboats, powerboats, racing powerboats, and catamarans. In 1989 Jeanneau with the collaboration of Garroni Design, made the first Prestige yacht. The yacht was launched into the luxury yacht market. That first Prestige 41 demonstrated exceptional capabilities with a contemporary style that everyone loved.
It didn’t take long to find an audience. Prestige has been crafting and delivering a range of incredible boats ever since. Prestige always pursues the desire to create exceptionally unique boats, always building the best.
Since 1989 Prestige has reinvented and perfected its models thanks to decades of experience at sea. Designed by sailors, for those who love the sea, Prestige yachts are the jewel of French marine engineering.
