Prestige Yachts X70 Brings a New Look

The Prestige X70 is a 26-knot flybridge cruiser with room for three or four staterooms.

It all starts with the reverse-raked house window, a defining trait of the Prestige Yachts X70′s look—an aesthetic from the pen of Italy-based Garroni Design—and one that separates this yacht from its siblings in the builder’s F-line and S-line. They too are Garroni designs with a raked look. The new visual detail gives the X70 a rugged, lean-forward appearance while providing function by shielding the helm from direct sunlight and, in turn, excessive heat.

The yacht’s cut-down bulwarks amidships and nearly sole-to-ceiling glass in the house sides work with the hullside glass to create a visually lower profile too.

Garroni pushed the X70′s house sides out nearly full beam, repositioning foredeck access from the side decks to the flybridge, where flanking steps lead forward to the optional foredeck lounge. A benefit of this design is increased interior volume.

Open the sliding glass doors to the salon, and it’s one-level living from the yacht’s teak cockpit all the way forward to the two steps leading up to the lower helm station.

The X70′s standard cockpit layout has two teak tables aft, a sun lounge on centerline forward, and settees to port and starboard. In this setup, the salon includes a six-seat dining table to starboard and a settee to port. If an owner prefers an alfresco dining setup in the cockpit under the flybridge overhang, the sun lounge moves aft, and the tables go away. Inside, the space previously used for dining will get a sofa, which creates a conversation area with the settee across from it.

A U-shaped galley is forward in the salon—abaft the helm station—and comes standard with Miele appliances including a fridge and freezer, a four-burner electric cooktop, and a microwave/convection oven.

Accommodations belowdecks are for either six or eight guests with three or four staterooms, including a full-beam master. In either scenario, there are three heads, plus a single crew cabin with a head far aft.

The X70 has two Volvo Penta powerplant options: Twin 900 hp IPS1200s are standard, and twin 1,000 hp IPS1350s are optional. Prestige says the X70 has a 19-knot cruise speed and a 24.5-knot top hop with the IPS1200s, as well as a 20-knot cruise and 26-knot top-end speed with the IPS1350s.

Owners can choose to personalize the X70′s interior with gray oak wood or satin- or high-gloss walnut.

With the X70, Prestige Yachts takes a purposeful step into a new design direction—one that blends a comfortable, familiar feeling with something completely new.
