Prestige 680 a finalist for Motor Boat Awards

Motor Boat Awards finalist logo

The all-new PRESTIGE 680 has been selected as a finalist for the Motor Boat of The Year Awards in the Flybridge over 60ft category.

Camilo Garroni, designer of the flagship Prestige 750, also designed the 680 and managed to incorporate many of the same features from the larger yacht into the 680.

The bright and open layout of the Prestige 680 is refreshing, and accommodations below sleep 8 plus 2 crew members (aft). The hull is designed for powerful IPS 1200 engines. See the Prestige 680 specifications page on the InterMarine website.

We are certain this yacht will win many accolades. The winners of the Motor Boat Awards will be announced at the London Boat Show in January 2016.

Here’s some staff photos from yesterday

Here’s some staff photos from yesterday. Captain Tony P was scheduled to run a performance test of the new Prestige 680 yacht, and the test requires six people to be on board. So InterMarine staff jumped in to help. The water was rough, but the 680 yacht ran like a champ and the test was completed successfully. See more about this vessel on our Prestige 680 luxury yacht product page.

The tides are changing

Last month we wrapped up the magnificent Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, now in its 55th year. The show was bigger than previous years, spanning seven show locations as opposed to the five we had last year. The boats are big, the clientele is bigger – and that’s the trend we are seeing.

More and more, we see the tide is turning in favor of the boating industry. Not only has the average consumer achieved the means to engage in boating due to better economic trends and astute product developments from boat manufacturers, but we are seeing the ultra-affluent demographic embracing the boating lifestyle as well. Prestige Luxury Yachts continue to bring some of the best-selling vessels we have, and in fact several of those models were sold at the show. Jeanneau is not far behind, and Chaparral continues to steal market shares from their main competitors.

Four Winns showcased their spirit of American innovation with the introduction of the 440H, THE largest bowrider in the market at this time. Truly a unique vessel, it blends a comfortable bowrider area complete with electric-lift teak table and a large, open cabin (yes, it spans the entire width of the boat and yes, you can stand comfortably inside).

All in all, there is something for everyone and there is no reason a family can’t enjoy boating. In a future post we will focus on Bayliner, the champion for entry-level runabouts and practical deckboats.

So what are you waiting for? Let’s get on the water!

The 2014 Palm Beach Boat Show was beyond spectacular

The Palm Beach Boat Show is a show of the spectacular, the luxurious and the upscale, set to the background of the beautiful and buzzing Downtown West Palm Beach.

People love to come and browse, and that is a-ok with us. We love to meet new people. But during this year’s show, we were amazed by the dedication of the boaters in this crowd. We had buyers who literally battled the wind and rain to get to the yacht they wanted.

All our displays were built with the utmost care and enthusiasm. We saw Prestige and Jeanneau really shine as several knowledgeable buyers snapped up 50′ and 62′ yachts as well as the sophisticated Jeanneau NC11. This crowd understand stylish leisure and this shows in the offers that were made on several of Chaparral’s elegant cabin cruisers.

During this year’s show, attendance numbers bettered last year’s by 15% and it is estimated that $92M were poured into the area. We are so happy to have had the opportunity to meet so many of you.

Prestige Flagship Yacht scheduled to set sail in 2014

2014 Prestige 750 set to launch late 2014

Prestige Luxury Motor Yachts is no stranger to innovation. Recently launched models include the All-New 2014 450S showcasing a layout only found in larger 50′ + models. Now, they set their sights upon a much larger endeavor with the development of the Prestige 750, their flagship 75′ yacht.

The Prestige 750 will feature exceptional comfort and exquisite details along its 75′ of space. The experienced designers from the renowned Garroni team built a yacht fit for the tastes of the elite, and her hull was designed to exceed the very highest seakeeping expectations.

The 750 was built to enhance your life at sea, with extra-large swim platform, oversized flybridge, ample seating spaces, high-tech helm stations in cockpit and flybridge, and FOUR cabins to fit all on-board guests. One of the more innovative elements is moving the owner’s cabin forward and on the main deck for added privacy and comfort. Powered with either MAN 1000 HP or MAN 1200 HP, this motor yacht delivers the best performance and fuel efficiency in her category.
