It was in 1957 that Henri Jeanneau, to which the famous Jeanneau Yacht Group would be named, created the now thriving shipyard. Having been a passionate powerboat racing enthusiast, Henri sought to create a fast yet stylish boat entirely made of wood. From the very first Jeanneau boat constructed back in those early days, the design has distinguished itself as timeless and with a certain “artisanal savoir-faire”. In the following year, Henri’s new model was among the first to adopt a new technology born from the Petrochemical Industry that would soon reinvent the marine industry into what it is known for today. This new fiberglass technology resulted in a much sturdier and more efficient boat and is highly regarded as the reason for Jeanneau’s early success.
The very first Prestige Yacht did not make its appearance until 1989 when the Jeanneau shipyard collaborated with Garroni Design to develop a new style of luxury motor yacht. Born was the new Prestige 41, a model that immediately demonstrated the experience and versatility of the Jeanneau team of builders. The first 41, much like her older siblings today, showed a commanding style of luxury while also proving to be quite the seaworthy vessel. With the beginning of the new century, Prestige opened a 70,000-plus square foot facility in Les Herbiers, France that would help the continued growth of the brand as it unveiled the all-new Prestige 36 flybridge. Today, the coupe-style motor yachts and popular Flybridge models are a stable of Prestige’s yearly line-up.
