TMG Yachts introduces the PRESTIGE M8, an exceptional multihull yacht providing an unparalleled cruising experience. With a remarkable living space and unique layout, the M8 sets a new benchmark for spaciousness. Whether sailing in Australia or the Mediterranean, the M8 offers an intimate connection to the sea and surroundings, even indoors, through its stunning windows providing breathtaking views. The design combines the volume, comfort, and luxury akin to an 85-foot monohull yacht with the stability and comfort of a catamaran, promising an unparalleled cruising experience.

Engineered with an innovative hull for enhanced performance and reduced energy usage, the M8 offers smooth and eco-friendly cruising. Impressively, it consumes merely half the fuel of a monohull with equivalent living space, making it an eco-conscious choice.

Powered by twin 600 HP Volvo D8 engines, the M8 attains cruising speeds with minimal fuel consumption, requiring only 20 liters per hour at 8 knots. These engines grant a maximum speed of 20 knots, delivering thrilling performance. The Volvo engines feature joystick control and V-drive transmission, ensuring precise maneuverability and easy docking.

John Cowpe, Managing Director of TMG Yachts, describes the onboard experience, stating that sailing the PRESTIGE M8 feels like floating on a magic carpet.

Stepping aboard reveals a spacious 110 m2 main deck, thoughtfully designed on a single level. Wide side decks seamlessly connect to the central saloon through side doors, allowing unrestricted movement. The luxurious interior boasts meticulous craftsmanship, with floor-to-ceiling windows offering panoramic ocean views, fostering openness and tranquility.

Personalization is a highlight, as the M8 provides two galley configurations: a U-shaped galley on the starboard side of the saloon or an aft galley in the starboard hull. The modular saloon enables owners to choose layouts according to their preferences, facilitated by the hull’s stability. An interior staircase in the saloon provides access to the flybridge, creating a seamless connection between indoor and outdoor spaces.

Below deck, choose between 4 or 5 cabins, each with private heads. The expansive 30 m2 owner’s cabin spans the yacht’s width, resembling a private apartment. It features a roomy bathroom on the port side, a cozy lounge on the starboard side, and a king-sized walkaround bed. The hulls can house four additional double guest staterooms or three, including a luxurious VIP Suite with a reading nook.

Cowpe emphasizes the apartment-like feel of the yacht and its whispered luxury, with abundant windows creating a sense of being at sea even indoors.

Outdoor living is embraced with three expansive spaces featuring modular furniture. These include a large 32m2 cockpit with flybridge access, a spacious foredeck accommodating 8 loungers, and a sprawling 50m2 flybridge with a dual-seat helm station and a table with eight armchairs.

An outstanding feature is the 4.2-meter-wide hydraulic bathing platform, which can extend the cockpit when raised, forming a beach club with steps leading to the bathing area. A roomy garage provides storage for equipment and water toys.

Cutting-edge technology is integral, including the optional Silent Boat Mode that enables emissions-free anchoring via solar panels and a lithium battery bank. The M8 also incorporates SEANAPPS technology, allowing real-time yacht monitoring, maintenance scheduling, and log access through a mobile application.

Cowpe envisions the M8 as a leader in Australia’s power catamaran concept, suitable for cruising both coasts and spending extended periods onboard. European delivery in Trieste, Italy, offers access to the Mediterranean.
