In August 2020, French luxury yacht brand Prestige will launch its new X70, offering a rethink on its F and S series. The new X line offers an interesting change of layout, with the flybridge placed forward onto a forward-facing front window. The designers decided to make bow access via the flybridge forward, rather than from the aft main deck, freeing up more space on the flybridge. According to the company, this means 90% of the flybridge beam can be used for social space, rather than the normal 70%.
It also means the main deck saloon occupies the entire beam of the boat, which opens onto a larger aft deck. The main deck is composed of four distinct living areas: a large helm station with improved visibility, a central galley with easy access to the flybridge, a aft cockpit enlarged by 300% and a beach club. Below deck, a full-beam owner’s cabin features fine materials and great storage space. The cabin is accessed by private staircase, with a guest and VIP cabins have their own entrances.
The X70 will be equipped with Volvo IPS 1200 and IPS 1350 engines, offering reliability, lower maintenance costs and optimal performance.
