Prestige 680 The largest boat the Jeanneau Group has ever built (the Prestige 750 is built at the Beneteau Group Facility), the Prestige 680 is a no-holds-barred luxury motoryacht meant to go toe-to-toe with the best. This is a best-in-class kind of yacht, more concerned with being the greatest new thing rather than invoking old-school nostalgia.

Several features jump out, including the large swim step aft, a massive entertainment-focused flybridge, and generous padded sunlounge at the foredeck. The market demands light, airy interiors, so the 680’s cabin is completely encased in glass windows with subtle horizontal windows running along the hull. This gives the whole presentation a very futuristic look.

Owners and guests will probably spend most of their time enjoying the flybridge, complete with plenty of seating, a dining table, BBQ, mini-bar, and helm. A deployable canvas top will come in handy when the rain falls.

There’s a helm down there too, unlike some new yachts that opt for a single helm in the flybridge to make the cabin a purely luxury affair. The sumptuous berths can be found below with some layout options. The 680 boasts twin Volvo Penta D13 900-horsepower diesel motors for a reported cruising speed of 22 to 24 knots and maximum speed somewhere around 27 to 29 knots.

The Prestige 680 appears to have the luxury Euro-motoryacht formula pretty well pegged. If interested, you can contact the local dealer Sundance Yacht Sales for more information and pricing.
