New Power catamaran Prestige M8

New Power catamaran Prestige M8 (65 ft)

The Jeanneau-Beneteau group announces for its PRESTIGE division the release of the new M8 catamaran for the next Boat Show in Cannes in the fall of 2023 and will be present at the 2023 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

Added Nov 2023: Yes, it was there, but on a private visit, which is odd for a public operation like a boat show.

After the release of the M48 (48.6 ft), Prestige Yachts is continuing its development plan for its new catamaran division and is stepping up a gear with a new 65-footer to be called the M8. Measuring 65 ft (LOA), it’s probably the same explanation as for Fountaine-Pajot, referring to 8 for 80 ft if you take into account the volume of a comparable yacht (conventional monohull), which is really similar to an 80-ft yacht.

The sales price was not formally revealed at the boat show (FLIBS), but the M48 is priced at around €1,489,500 euros. So we’ll probably be looking at around €4.75 million euros for the M8. That’s the asking price for Europe, which is roughly equivalent to over $5 million usd, and that’s just the MSRP. I can’t wait to see how the market reacts to this very high price for a new catamaran. We’re not looking at a catamaran with a well-established reputation like SUNREEF, for example.

After the release of the M48 (48.6 ft), Prestige Yachts continues its development plan for its new catamaran division and is increasing in power with a new 65 footer that will be called the M8.

The selling price has not been revealed but the price of the M48 is around €1,489,500 euros. So we will probably be around €4.5 million euros for the M8.

If you are interested in a catamaran, it will be our pleasure to discuss with you this model or any other manufacturer such as Lagoon, Leopard (Robertson & Caine), Fountaine-Pajot, Bali and of course SUNREEF but this last one is a Custom catamaran.
