Prestige Australia is very proud to have the latest new Prestige 500 travelling to Australia with a HERO.
Due into Fremantle on April 26th, the Wallenius Wilhelmsen Logistics’ M/V Thermopylae is the first of its new generation of Post Panamax HERO (High Efficiency RoRo) PCTC vessels.
Measuring in at 36.5 m wide and 199.99 m long, the Thermopylae features 5 liftable car decks, allowing for more configurations for cargo of various sizes and hence increased capacity for cars, trucks, equipment and breakbulk. The vessels more shallow draft allows her to call ports with shallower depths, increasing her scope of service geographically.
Taking steps towards the Orcelle vision of zero-emission shipping, the Thermopylae design includes emission reducing features such as a streamlined bow, new Promas rudder and an engine configured to allow the vessel to operate more efficiently in a wider range of speeds and drafts. In addition, the vessel is fitted with an Exhaust Gas Cleaning System that reduces sulphur emissions to below 0.1% in compliance with ECA regulations. This system also removes 70% of particulate matter, significantly reducing NOx emissions.
The new Prestige 500 is a perfect example of Prestige Luxury Motor Yacht’s commitment to designing and producing contemporary luxury motor yachts that are always breaking new ground.
The Prestige 500 offers a living space entirely on one level. In seamless communication with the cockpit and the saloon, a spacious galley is ideally situated for easy access to the interior and the exterior. No longer separated from the living area, the open galley is discretely integrated and centrally located, a detail that chefs will appreciate!
The luxurious owner’s suite, with private access and an adjoining head and shower compartment, is located mid-ship, where space is maximized and natural light floods in through large windows in the hull.
