Prestige releasing F-Line flagship at Dusseldorf


The French brand will debut its new 690 F-Line flagship indoors at Boot Dusseldorf in January followed by an outdoor showing in Miami in February.

The Prestige 690 will be the new flagship of the French brand’s F-Line


Prestige is scheduled to stage the world premiere of its Prestige 690 at Boot Dusseldorf from January 23-31, 2021, followed by a display at the Miami Yacht Show from February 11-15. Earlier this month, the French builder debuted its flagship X70 at the 60th Genoa International Boat Show.


With an overall length of 21.54m (70ft 4in), the 690 will succeed the 680 as the new flagship of Prestige’s F-Line series of flybridge models and features a 240sqft flybridge that the Groupe Beneteau brand describes as a “reference in her category”.


The flybridge has a portside helm station with twin carbon-fibre helm seats and double armrests, a dining area that can accommodate up to six people and a large, fully equipped galley. Multiple layout options are available for the aft area including an island lounge, lounge chairs or an outdoor saloon with a comfortable sofa.

The cockpit includes an aft ‘sundeck’ that’s suspended above the transom door, while the foredeck offers another inviting outdoor area, with a triple sunpad and a forward-facing sofa in the bow.


The bright interior includes a well-equipped galley to port opposite a dining table with an L-shaped sofa and loose chairs, while forward is a saloon featuring a larger L-shaped sofa paired with accompanying armchairs. The helm station to starboard has a twin bench seat.


Prestige continues its tradition of offering a private staircase to the master suite, which is located in the bow and has a forward-facing bed.


The standard layout of the flybridge, which Prestige describes as a “reference in her category”


A three-cabin layout offers two more full-beam doubles (one facing forward, one facing aft), while the four-cabin layout replaces a double with two guest cabins. There’s also a well-equipped aft crew cabin with twin beds.


The upgraded décor and furniture options include Roda outdoor furniture and Foglizzo leather interiors. The Ship Control system and a generator are included as standard, with Volvo IPS 1200 or IPS 1350 as the twin engine options.


Prestige is also developing the 690S, for its Sportyacht line, with the model including a smaller flybridge and an electric sunroof.


The flybridge is also offered with outdoor furniture from Italian company Roda


The company is also producing the 420S, the Sportyacht version of its entry-level 420 that debuted at last year’s Cannes Yachting Festival and became the brand’s fastest-selling model.


Asia Yachting, which represents Prestige in Hong Kong, Macau, Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore and Thailand, staged the Asian premiere of the Prestige 420 at the Thailand Yacht Show in January.
