Prestige 680-ibi

New Prestige 680 was launched in Croatia this month

Prestige Yachts, a motoryacht brand of the French Beneteau Group, has announced plans to intensify its presence at the major boat shows in new strategic regions. The strategy includes exhibiting no fewer than seven models at the Yachting Cannes Festival in France in September, and 10 models at the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show, in the US.

In addition, two new models have been added to the brand’s portfolio currently made of powerboats ranging 12m-22m (40ft-75ft).

The Prestige 680, announced this March this year, was just launched in Croatia this month. The yacht offers a hull and accommodation plan in the tradition of the DNA of the other Prestige models.

The exteriors by J&J Design feature a pronounced hull strake for comfortable, fast navigation. The yacht also preserves the technical attributes of the Prestige DNA by offering an IPS 1200 engine type for easy manoeuvrability and suitable even for sailing short-handed.

The flybridge gives a very large, private space linking a lounge area with a galley bar to a large sun bathing area forward. Visibility towards the stern at the helm position is the maximum so that it is always easy to manoeuvre.

The company is also announcing the launch of Prestige 680S, a second new model in the line.

The concept of the Sportfly features a large sliding glass sunroof that opens the saloon to the outdoors, instantly transforming the interior space. This “liveable” concept will be presented over the course of 2016.
