Prestige 680 details revealed ahead of Cannes show launch

Motorboat & Yachting: The new Prestige 680 will come with twin Volvo IPS 1200 and a choice of three or four cabins, UK dealer Ancasta has confirmed.

 

There’s still five months to go until the 2015 Cannes Boat Show, but the Prestige 680 is already shaping up to be one of the biggest new launches at this year’s event.

The 21m-flybridge cruiser will be unveiled in September, but Prestige has released a few select details to build up the hype. UK dealer Ancasta has confirmed that the new arrival will come fitted with twin Volvo Penta IPS drives, which will generate a total of 1,800hp.

These sizeable units will return a top speed of 30 knots and a fast cruising speed of 25 knots, the brokerage firm added. Other key details to emerge include the layout, which will be available in a choice of 3-cabin or 4-cabin.

Fit and finish
Exterior styling by J & J Design includes stretched lines and a pronounced hull strake for comfortable, fast navigation. On board, three large windows let in plenty of light and give the skipper a 360-degree view, while the side access door makes the Prestige 680 a practical choice for cruising short-handed.

Below decks, there are two main accommodation areas; the full-beam owners suite in the bows, and the guest cabins amidships, which can be laid out as two doubles or a double and two twin cabins. Add in the twin crew cabin at the stern and the Prestige 680 can accommodate a maximum of ten people overnight.

We’ll have to wait until September to see the finished article hit the water, but in the meantime Prestige has released plenty of renders to whet our appetite.
