By the Numbers
The optional twin 1,000 hp Volvo Penta D13-IPS1350s (900 hp IPS1200s are standard) get the Prestige X70’s fully loaded, 101,016-pound hull up and moving. Pushing the throttles to wide open, we averaged 27.7 knots with a fuel burn of 102 gph and a range of 273 nm (less a 5 percent fuel reserve). Pulling back the throttles produced a range of 363 nm at 11.2 knots at 1,500 rpm and a burn rate of 31 gph. Sipping the fuel at 8.5 gph allows for a 933 nm range at 7.9 knots.
