50' Prestige 500S Express Cruiser
Call for Price
One thing Prestige Yachts knows how to do is combine luxury with affordability. A perfect example of that is this 500S. Here is a boat with a luxurious layout, boat garage, and three private staterooms including a full beam owner's suite. As for the price, we think this is one of the more positive stories about getting value for your hard-earned money.
The Prestige line of boats has a distinct mission in the Jeanneau family of yachts: to provide superior performance in a coastal cruising powerboat that has an enduring nautical style, maximum living spaces, and incorporating virtually all of the amenities available in class that a real cruising couple or family could want.
Prestige Yachts’ mission is to do all of the above, and much more, at a price point significantly below its primary competition. The result is that the Prestige 500S is a boat that can be appreciated by veteran yachtsmen who know a price-worthy boat when they see one.
Our test boat was powered by twin 435-hp Volvo Penta IPS600 propulsion systems. The 500S's maximum speed on test day was 34.3 mph (29.8 knots). At this speed she was burning 42.5 gph and has a range of 217 nautical miles.
Best cruise was found at 2250 rpm where the boat was just over the hump on plane going 16.8 mph (14.6 knots), burning 14.5 gph, getting exactly 1.0 nmpg for a range of 311 nautical miles. I suspect most boaters will want to cruise her a bit faster, say, at 2750 where we found her going 20.0 knots and getting .89 nmpg.
