The new, aggressively styled Prestige 630S with a light-filled interior and proud French pedigree will be launched in the U.S. at the Miami Yacht Show on Collins Avenue, starting Feb. 15. The newest in Prestige’s SportYacht lineup, the 630S has three cabins (plus a captain’s quarters) and a 24-knot cruising speed powered by twin 725-hp Volvos with IPS950 pod drives.
Inside, the 630S has a clean, contemporary, European-styled salon, with luxurious settees and a dining table where guests can enjoy 360-degree views from windows all around. In addition, a large sliding glass sunroof lets in more light and fresh air when it’s open.
What’s immediately remarkable about this newest Prestige is the pronounced rake of the front windshield, which carries up to the same angle on the Venturi on the flybridge. The low radar arch aft repeats the same rake there, so the boat seems to be moving forward even when it’s standing still. The flybridge has a full helm station with U-shaped seating that converts to a sundeck, plus a grill for entertaining. The overhang from the flybridge offers protection to the cockpit bellow.
The sidedecks have high stainless steel rails for safety, and they’re lined with teak. So is the swim platform, which lowers for easy access to water sports. The foredeck has the now de rigueur sunpad.
We don’t have many details on this boat yet, but the fingertip joystick controls should make docking and low-speed maneuvering easy and intuitive. Prestige says the boat has a range of 305 nm at its cruising speed, and it tops out at about 30 knots.
