Ancasta has been named as Prestige Luxury Motor Yachts Dealer of the Year 2018. The announcement was made at an event held in Port Bourgenay, France, at the end of June. Following the news it was announced that the world launch of the new Prestige 590 would take place at Cannes in September.

The Prestige brand has experienced exponential growth in the past few years and the builder now lays claim to being the world’s leading manufacturer of motor yachts between 40ft and 60ft, based on volume of boats manufactured. The award, which Ancasta has now won three times, acknowledges the fact that UK market share for Prestige continues to grow.

The award, presented for Ancasta’s exceptional sales and outstanding service, was presented to Nick Hatfield, Prestige Brand Manager for Ancasta, by Jean Paul Chapeleau, managing director of Prestige Luxury Motor Yachts, and Jean Philippe Brun, Prestige sales director for the UK. Nick commented: "It’s great to pick up this award on behalf of the Ancasta team. We’re extremely proud to represent Prestige and very excited by the great new product that we will see for next season and beyond".
