To celebrate its 30-year anniversary, Prestige has launched an all-new and highly innovative X-Line range, which was announced during the 2019 Cannes Yachting Festival.
The new X-Line range has been developed to compete in the burgeoning ‘crossover’ category of luxury motor yachts.
The first boat to be launched in the X-Line range will be the X70, a new 21-metre yacht that will have its debut at Cannes in 2020, with other models to follow.
The X70 will focus on space, light and luxury with an emphasis on hand-selected materials and exceptional fit and finish.
Prestige and Garroni Design have created space and movement by moving the side decks to the flybridge, enhancing circulation and optimising room on the main deck. This redistribution and blending together of the interior and exterior living spaces greatly increases the size of the cockpit and ensures entertainment areas flow throughout the vessel.
This flagship yacht of the X-Line range will have Volvo IPS technology providing smooth, fuel-efficient cruising.
David Beck from Sundance Marine, who distributes Prestige in Australia, previewed the prototype X70 in France earlier this year.
“The living spaces onboard were outstanding. Stepping on board the prototype in the shipyard opened my eyes to a new way of living onboard, where the flow between indoors and outside are seamless.
The new X-Line is perfectly suited to Australian conditions and family entertaining – this will generate a lot of interest.”
