Designer description Studio Garroni
Garroni Design was founded in 1971 by Vittorio Garroni. His love of sailing in France led to a collaboration with Jeanneau, which began in the 1980s with Prestige 41 and continues to this day.

Prestige, the luxury motor yacht brand launched by Jeanneau in 1989, Vittorio Garroni was responsible for creating some of the best selling yachts in history.Jeanneau models such as the Cap Camarat 755 (about 1000 hulls sold), Merry Fisher, Runabout and all current NC and Leader models. Garroni has produced around 70 different models for Prestige.

Chief designer of the studio Camillo Garroni says: «When I start thinking about a new boat, I always remember that it should be modern and relevant in ten years. Working with Prestige Yachts, I always insist on innovation, otherwise my work will become routine. We study the market, the needs of the owners, we listen to the dealers, and then together we decide what to do next. The use of advanced software such as Catia allows us to share the changes we make to the design in real time, even if we are thousands of kilometers away from each other.
