Irish dealers MGM Boats were on hand this morning when the new Prestige X70 was launched at boot Dusseldorf today, the first in the new crossover range from Prestige Yachts.

The X70 has been developed with space, light and luxury in mind, and materials have been hand-selected to ensure exceptional fit and finish. Prestige Yachts and Garroni Design have been innovative in their use of space, enhancing circulation and optimising room on the main deck by moving the side decks to the flybridge.

"The X70 is the most innovative yacht of her category and her generation, enabling people to experience an entirely new way to live on the water", MGM's Gerry Salmon said at the launch today.

Greatly increasing the size of the cockpit has resulted in the redistribution and bringing together of interior and exterior living spaces, ensuring entertainment areas flow throughout the vessel.

The single-story nature of the X70 offers an infinite choice of main deck and cockpit layouts, and the interior is furnished with high-quality fabrics and designer furniture from prestigious brands including RODA and Duvivier.

There is also a Beach Club fully integrated into the aft platform providing further entertainment space and proximity to the water.

The X70 is the first boat to be produced in the new X-Line range from Prestige. This groundbreaking new 70-foot mini superyacht will start sea trials in early summer and then have its world debut at Cannes the following month.

This flagship yacht of the X-Line range is designed to take you where you want to go. The Volvo IPS technology provides smooth, fuel-efficient cruising with exceptional manoeuvrability.

In due course, the X70 will be joined by smaller and larger models complementing the state-of-the-art the Prestige X-Line range.

Ireland's MGM Boats have received the 'Prestige Yachts Dealer of the Year Award' at the Jeanneau Dealer Conference in Turkey last weekend.

MGM Boats, who are headquartered in Dun Laoghaire Harbour but who have bases in Cork and Belfast and on the River Shannon, have represented the brand since 2002 and have been part of the consulting team to assist in design concepts and market research for the brand. In April, they delivered a new Prestige 620 Sport to The Conway Club, a beds–on–board concept company in St Kathrines Dock in London's docklands.

The firm's Martin Salmon told Afloat.ie 'it is a great achievement for us to win this award. We have had a very close relationship with the Prestige team for the past 15 years and are looking forward to future sales and many of them'.

Created over 20 years ago, Prestige is now an internationally recognised brand, present on four continents through a network of specialised dealers trained by the shipyard. There are currently over 2,500 Prestige owners worldwide.
