Good afternoon, Erik Mayol with Denison Yachting, we’re in beautiful San Diego, California today and we’re on board the END GAME, she is a 2020 Prestige 520 Fly. This 52-Foot Motor Yacht could not be more perfect for Southern California. She has a stunning profile and some of the best amenities in her class. The thing that really sets the 520 apart from the competitors is the salon and how central it is to your experience on board. Whether you find yourself on the inside looking out or entertaining family, there are a few salons that offer as much as this yacht does. Another aspect of this boat that makes her ideal for this area are the 3-cabins found below decks. These consist of a midship master that takes up the full beam of the boat as well as a VIP forward which is just steps away from a twin cabin.

The 520 Fly is a great option for anyone in the owner-operator market. This is largely because you have great visibility from any of the 3 helm positions that you run this boat from. Before we get going, I want to take a minute to show you how she ran on today’s sea trial. The seas right outside San Diego harbor were about 1-2 feet and made for a perfect way to see this boat underway.

Let’s kick things off on my favorite part of this boat – the flybridge. For its size and what it offers in terms of entertaining, it’s one of the best in class. Starting aft, we see an alfresco dinette with U-shaped seating. This molded-in seating area is based around a teak table. The back of the bench on the forward side is adjustable and can add some extra forward-facing seating. When in this position, you have great access to a sun pad with back rest that raise up. Looking to port we have a wet bar with a sink, prep space and refrigeration.

Forward and to port up here is the upper helm. Up here we have all the electronics and navigation equipment found at the main helm. We’ll break these down a little more at the lower helm but between the Raymarine electronics, seating and the visibility, there is nothing not to love about this fly bridge. Leaving here let’s next take a look at Endgame’s hydraulic swim platform.

Currently there is a Sea-Doo Wave Runner with seating for 3 that is used in lieu of a tender. When this is deployed, you’re left with a large teak finished dive platform where you can entertain all day. Finally back here, we not only have the boat’s shore power connections but also a fresh water shower.

Two steps up from the swim platform we have access to the cockpit on the starboard side. I love the layout of this area. Not only do you have a second open-air dinette center line but there’s seating for up to 6 on all sides. The seating to port ends at the stairs leading up to the fly bridge. Looking directly below these stairs, you’ll see the cockpit has an ice maker hidden away. Another great feature back here is the aft helm station equipped with a convenient joystick for backing the boat into your slip stern first. Looking to starboard take note there’s an access gate on and off the boat as well as side decks that lead forward to the bow. Below the molded in guest seating is where the crew quarters are located. Down here we have a berth, plenty of room for storage and a private head and shower.

Another space to point out is the engine room which is accessed in the middle of the cockpit. Down here we have in games twin Volvo IPS 600s that are 435 horsepower each. These engines provide this 520 Fly with a cruise speed of around 21 knots and a top speed somewhere around 26 knots. From here let’s step into the salon through a pair of floor-to-ceiling glass doors.

These slide over in order to connect the outdoor cockpit and the indoor entertaining spaces. Making this design one of the most remarkable in her class is the aft galley. In here, we see a Vitrifrigo fridge and freezer as well as your cooking appliances. For these there’s a 3-burner cooktop above a Miele oven. Directly across from the galley we have a convenient breaker panel where you have control over most of the boat’s crucial systems like batteries, lighting and AC. Immediately forward of this are stairs that lead down into the master. The private entry to the master is one of the most popular features on the Prestige 520 along with the massive full beam stateroom. In here is a reading sofa to port coupled with very large windows that include portholes for great cross breeze while reading or napping. Forward into starboard is an ensuite head with shower.

Jumping back to the main deck let’s pick up forward of the galley where we have a pair of seating options. To port is a u-shaped sofa custom fit for the area. In addition to having a fold-out table, the view out of these windows is impressive. Directly across from the formal dinette to starboard is a raised L-shaped seating area with its own windows and a door that opens to the side deck. Rounding out the main deck we have the lower helm. I just want to take a minute to break down the electronics found here as a majority of these are doubled up on the fly bridge.

Everything here is based around the Raymarine multi-function displays. Just below the port display we have a chain counter, autopilot and Volvo multi-function engine display. On the outboard side of our helm, we have a seakeeper control panel, joystick and throttle controls.

Leaving the main deck, let’s head below and take a look at the first of two remaining guest accommodations. The port side guest stateroom has 2 beds that easily slide together to make a queen size bed. Also on the outboard side is a large window with an opening port for great ventilation. The third accommodation is located in the bow and this is the VIP. As you enter the VIP you will notice lots of natural light and large marine queen island berth that has the option of splitting into two twins as well. Also accessed directly from the VIP is a shared head with a shower.

We’re going to end today’s walk through of END GAME on the bow which is directly above the VIP stateroom. The primary feature up here is a pair of adjustable sunpads. These are separated by large skylights that flood the VIP with overhead light. The foredeck is also enclosed completely by a substantial safety rail and provides peace of mind if you have kids or pets on board. Forward of the sunpad we have the ground tackle. This is made up of a Lewmar Windlass, large chain locker and polished Lewmar anchor.
