Ancasta thinks big for London Boat Show with Prestige 680 debut
Leading dealer Ancasta International Boat Sales will delight London Boat Show visitors this January with a premium line-up of yachts from world leading brands: Prestige and Beneteau. The highlight this year will be the new Prestige 680 Flybridge - making its UK debut following a successful world debut at the 2015 Cannes Boat Show in September.
"The 680 from Prestige – a 21m luxury cruiser - is a very big deal and it's really exciting for us to be able to present it to the UK market in January,” Ancasta’s group marketing director, Will Blair told BoatsandOutboards. “We’re expecting it to create a real stir at ExCeL London because it’s such a beautiful, versatile boat, and delivers incredible value for money. The show provides a great opportunity for the Ancasta team to spend time with customers who’d like to see firsthand what’s on offer across a range of fantastic boats from Prestige and Beneteau."
Blair said the 680 builds on all the key features that have made the Prestige range a success. “We think British boaters will love the fact that the key elements of the Prestige 750 have been incorporated into the 680 design, creating a very manageable 68 footer that delivers surprising performance.”
He added that the brokerage market is healthy and buoyant in 2015. “So this is the perfect time to bring some really exciting products to the London Boat Show and build on the momentum of the great trading year we’ve had.
“A real point of difference about Ancasta is that we offer a very attentive after sales service, with a dedicated department ensuring customers are assisted at every stage of the buying process, be that from arranging factory visits to helping with the boat specification decision making. We really take people through each step with care – it becomes a partnership.”
As well as enjoying all that the Prestige 680 has to offer, don’t miss other great models being presented by Ancasta: The new Swift Trawler 30 from Beneteau as well as the elegant Gran Turismo 40, and four Oceanis sail models from Beneteau (full list of boats expected below).
More about Prestige 680 Motoryacht
As UK dealer for Prestige, Ancasta has confirmed that the 680 will come fitted with twin Volvo Penta IPS drives, capable of generating a total of 1,800hp. The engines will return a top speed of 30 knots and a fast cruising speed of 25 knots.
A major selling point of the Prestige 680 Flybridge is that all living space is on one level. Owners can choose a layout with three or four cabins, and a popular feature is her forward master stateroom a couple of steps down from the main deck. Reviews in the marine press praise the fact that the 680 benefits from features and accommodation that are normally only found on much larger boats.
The flybridge has a very large, private space linking to a lounge area with galley bar and a large forward sun terrace.
Inside the Prestige 680, expect style, luxury and attention to detail when it comes to the materials used and the overall finish. The living space enjoys panoramic views through large windows which allow natural light to flood in. The popular aft galley layout enjoyed by other Prestige models has been translated into the Prestige 680.
