Prestige Yachts has once again changed the landscape of luxury motor yachts with the launch of the new X70. Scheduled to make its official premier at the Cannes Yachting Festival in September, 2020, the hype at the Dusseldorf Boat Show surrounding the new model is real. The new X-line model series is a product line that is "dedicated to luxury and the art of living well" according to Prestige. "(We are) launching the X70, the first model in this innovative and seductive line, and reinventing space and ease of movement on board," the builder said in a press briefing.
"We're very excited to see the new X-70 debut," said Jay Hendrix, Vice President of SI Yachts. "This boat is unique. Not just the innovative design, but it really took into consideration the experience of the owner that wants to cruise for weeks at a time. Interior space is important, but so are maintaining your outdoor living areas. I believe Prestige hit a homerun with the X70."
What's so different about the design of the X70?
Prestige is calling the new design of the X70 an architectural revolution and we have to agree. A traditional flybridge yacht uses 70% of the beam to account for circulation along the side-decks. The new Prestige X70 completely repositions the side-decks on to the flybridge! This enables the flybridge to use over 90% of the space available. The benefits include increased space in the exterior living areas, for the salon to stretch the full beam, and for an over-sized cockpit space. The forward deck is accessed through a door from the interior and from the flybridge.

Exterior Features Of The X70:
The exterior has the traditional Prestige feel to it thanks to the continuing partnership with Garroni Design. There are multiple outdoor sunbathing options including the foredeck lounge and aft on the flybridge. There are four staircases connecting the living spaces from main deck to top and from bow to aft. The greater ease of movement on board thanks to the additional staircases is noticeable. The flybridge hardtop has a sunroof for additional openness or an extending shade aft over the flybridge lounge area. The Beach Club is an exciting addition to the Prestige line and gives owners a unique space near the sea to enjoy thanks to a 300% increase in the size of the cockpit.
The Interior Salon Of The X70:
The main deck of the Prestige X70 is composed of four spacious, open living areas. The salon (seen above) takes advantage of the X70's full beam as well as the large windows along the port and starboard sides. Ample seating provides a comfortable, climate-controlled space to enjoy the cruise or have a cocktail with friends. The central galley is placed at the heart of the main deck and includes an easy access to the flybridge for serving guests outdoors.
The Inside Helm On The X70:
The inside helm has stunning views and visibility thanks for the wrap-around windows and elevated helm seat. The helm "love seat" is big enough for two or there is wrap-around seating on each side.
The Lower Deck Accommodations Layout:
The Prestige X70 blends luxurious appointments with inviting living spaces for a truly comfortable experience when staying overnight. The owner's cabin stretches the full beam of the yacht and is placed midship with its own en suite bath and an incredible amount of interior volume. There is access to the owner's suite from the main deck via a private staircase. Additionally, the VIP suite and a guest cabin also have their own entrance. Full crew accommodations are also an option.
Rendering Of The Owner's Suite:
Prestige has also integrated the very best materials onboard the X70 for an exceptional fit-and-finish. The leather is from Foglizzo, the audio system is from Bowers & Wilkins, and the woodwork is applied manually piece by piece. The ambiance aboard the X70 is truly one of a kind.
For propulsion, Prestige offers both Volvo Penta IPS 1200 or 1350 engines. Volvo Penta is the choice of many luxury yacht builders because of their reliability, quiet performance, and fuel efficiency.
