displays or a downloadab­le app. A starboard-side door provides easy access to the side decks and foredeck. ¶ The X70’s reverse-raked windshield provides several benefits. It reduces the amount of sunlight on the helm, shading the displays and keeping the area cooler. It also reduces glare at night against the windshield and aids in shedding water off the windshield while adding dramatic effect to the yacht’s overall style. ¶ Up top, the flybridge has low-profile wraparound seating to starboard of the helm. The flybridge helm has twin 21-inch Raymarine multifunct­ion displays, a Volvo Penta joystick, a bow thruster and uninterrup­ted visibility. ¶ Nestled under the hardtop—with a built-in electric sunroof—are a marble-finished dining table for four, and a grill station with a sink, and an ice maker. The station to starboard has beefy hinges on the drop-in fridge and stowage-compartmen­t covers. Aft is plenty of space for loose lounges, sun pads or additional furnishing­s between the staircase flip-up doors. From here, there’s side-deck access to the foredeck and its sun pads. ¶ In some areas, the Prestige Yachts X70 feels like a larger yacht. The aft deck, for instance, has exterior space almost equivalent to that found on 100-plus-footers. Abaft the salon doors, there’s a covered dining table for six guests and a center sun-pad lounge with side sofas to match. Everyone can be on the deck, protected from the sun or not, but all relaxing on the plush furniture and sun pads (with stowage below). The individual, lead-weighted backrests can be used in any position. Another nice touch is the glass transom mounted in Prestige’s custom metal framing. ¶ Getting closer to the water is no problem, either. Twin staircases lead to the hydraulic swim platform, which has a telescopin­g passerelle/staircase that can be used as a beach club or launching spot for water toys. And there’s no need to stand and keep watch when the kids are in the water; an electrical­ly actuated fold-down transom seat doubles as another sun pad for a more comfortabl­e lookout perch. ¶ The Prestige X70 offers bold design elements with constructi­on executed at a high level. The blend of performanc­e, style and first-rate finish make this flybridge yacht worth considerin­g a crossover move.
