Prestige 460: Perfect Family Cruiser for Boating In The PNW‍

Written By:

Equally at home cruising wild stretches of the Puget Sound, or the idyllic calm waters of the Cascade Locks on the Columbia River, the Prestige 460 is not your average 46-footer. In keeping with Prestige Yachts philosophy, this stunning family cruiser offers an unparalleled amount of living space and comfort for her size as well as a very impressive cruising range which gives you the freedom to cruise where your fancy takes you. Her stylish interior and ample outdoor lounge areas make her the perfect retreat after an adventurous day of hiking, biking and exploring gorgeous falls and hidden spots up and down the Pacific Northwest.

Before you even step aboard you'll notice her elegant, clean lines and continuous windows which flood her airy interior spaces with natural light. Prestige Yachts has collaborated with Garroni Design and JP Concepts to create a stunning look both inside and out, and a layout that has been optimized to allow you to truly relax and enjoy an effortless cruising experience. The first clever feature is the L-shaped cockpit which makes the most of the space as it doubles as a spacious sun deck ideal for summer days and evenings. This space is complemented by a large swim platform and sunpads on the foredeck where you can relax with a cold drink as the kids play on paddleboards or inflatables.

As you step inside to fix another drink or to rustle up a simple lunch with local ingredients and a bottle or two of Oregon Pinot Noir, you'll be struck by the thoughtful and practical layout of the Prestige 460's interior. The compact galley sits right by the alfresco lounge, making it very easy to dine under the stars or just throw together a quick snack when you or the kids get hungry after a busy day hiking along the shores of Vancouver Island, or spotting bears and whales from the sundeck. Accommodation onboard consists of a very generous double cabin with an ensuite heads and shower plus two further twin cabins. There is also an additional cabin aft which is ideal for older children who want more independence, or a nanny or other staff member.

Every detail has been taken care of when it comes to longer cruises and heading off the beaten path. Onboard you'll find an ice maker which is sure to come in handy for indulging in a cocktail or two on a sultry evening, and she also comes equipped with air conditioning. The electrical sun awning in the cockpit is incredibly easy to use while underwater lights provide extra charm to a romantic night-time cruise or dinner. There's even a combined washer and dryer onboard for catching up on laundry while you are cruising.

Life aboard isn't just about relaxed family fun, though. Thanks to two Volvo IPS 600 engines which give an impressive 435 HP, the 460 boasts a top speed of 32 knots which makes a short break from Portland up the Columbia River a breeze. She also has a remarkable cruising speed of 24 knots and a range of 240 nautical miles, allowing you to reach the three top cruising areas of the Pacific Northwest, the Columbia River, British Columbia, and the Puget Sound, without the need to stop and refuel.

This gorgeous Prestige 460 is currently available for purchase from Sundance Yachts with a list price of $1,096,272.
