Prestige Yachts has clearly hit a homerun with the new X70 after it won the award for Best Interior Layout at the World Yacht Trophies and was a finalist for the Best Of Boats award. The X70 was the beginning of a brand-new model line from Prestige, the X-series, which looked to expand upon its range of luxury flybridge boats, like the 680. "Prestige's new X-line series is very exciting for the owner that wants a home on the water, complete with all of the luxuries and comfort you would expect at a 5-star resort," said Jay Hendrix, SI Yachts Vice President. "Prestige is all about comfort while on the water and they bring those same creature-comforts you're used to relaxing at home on to every boat."
The exterior profile of the X70 has a traditional Prestige feel to it, yet with some noticeable updates. The flybridge area seems to have received an overhaul from the 680 Flybridge design with a lounge/sunbathing area aft. There is also the addition of a staircase leading from the bridge to the bow, as well as an addition staircase leading to the aft cockpit. The side-decks have essentially been moved to the flybridge, which allows the interior walls to be expanded and increased space.
Aft is the beach club. Need we say more? The Prestige Beach Club will mimic that of much larger superyachts with outdoor dining, sunbathing, a hydraulic swim platform, and all of the amenities your guests need to enjoy their time in the sun.
While the abundance of large windows for the main deck salon are still consistent with previous models, the lines flowing from aft to bow have become sleeker and could potentially have added more opportunities for natural light near the foredeck. As Prestige releases more renderings and information, it will be interesting to see how the interior space here is used!
As with all Prestige Yachts, the Garroni Design team places an emphasis on open space in the interior living areas, but also in the outside social areas. When cruising on a yacht for days or weeks at a time, space becomes very important in creating an environment that doesn't feel constrained. Prestige's commitment to space allows the exterior relaxation zones to blend effortlessly with the interior salon and dining area. Prestige has described the interior of the X70 to be appointed with hand-crafted materials and a luxurious fit-and-finish.
Volvo IPS technology has once again been chosen as the propulsion system of choice. Volvo is well-known as a fuel efficient, high-performing, and reliable engine. With joystick control, expect the X70 to be easily maneuvered and smooth.
