Prestige X60 first look: Asymmetric deck design offers the best of both worlds

Prestige is launching a smaller sibling to its X70 crossover yacht. The new Prestige X60 sports a similar profile to its big sister, complete with raked-forward windscreen and larger than usual aft deck and beach club.

Asymmetric main deck layout leaves room for a sidedeck to port but not to starboard

However, it offers a slightly different take on the Prestige X70’s unusual full-beam main saloon that pushes the sidedecks up onto the flybridge.

Instead of running across the entire width of the main deck, the Prestige X60’s saloon occupies the full-beam to starboard but stops short to port, leaving room for a deeply bulwarked side deck on this side of the boat.

A sliding section of glass towards the aft end of the saloon opens up onto this sidedeck, acting as an oversized side door as well as providing a cooling flow of air through the interior.

Another smaller side door next to the helm gives Prestige X60 owners easy access to the foredeck on the starboard side too.

This new solution helps counter criticism that the X70’s lack of side decks makes it harder to rig fenders and take a lazy line forward when berthing stern to in the Mediterranean. The galley is amidships and wraps round the two-seat helm console.

A spacious foredeck lounge with multi-purpose seats/sunpads on either side of an octagonal table make the most of its squared off bow, while a fold out aft-facing bench on the transom gives credence to its beach club status.

The lower-deck comprises a full-beam owners’ suite amidships with its own private staircase, a VIP suite in the bow and a twin guest cabin in-between.

Propulsion for the Prestige X60 comes from twin 600hp Cummins QSC8.3 diesels, but buyers can choose between either V-drive shafts or Zeus pods.

Axopar 25 yacht tour: Is this €80k boat the coolest 25fter yet?

At the recent Cannes Yachting Festival, MBY deputy editor Jack Haines took the chance to tour the Axopar 25, which was making its global debut.

Though it looks very similar, the 25 uses a different hull mould to the 22 and is 0.8m longer. The key difference is that the Axopar 25 – available as a Spyder or T-Top (pictured) – instead of the open deck of the 22, has a cuddy cabin with sleeping space for two people and a toilet.

On deck, instead of the walkaround layout of the 22 the Axopar 25 has an asymmetric design with a walkaway down the port side that leads right forward where there is a double sun pad positioned atop the sleek coachroof.

Aft, the Axopar 25 has the same choice of layouts as its smaller sibling with either a bench, U-shaped dinette to multi-storage unit with a sun pad to pick from.

Axopar 22 test drive review: The new benchmark for entry-level boats


If the Axopar 22 is anything to go by, the deep-vee twin-stepped hull should be an absolute peach and is likely to punch well above its weight when the going gets rough.

A wide selection of single outboards are available with power ranging from the modest 150hp Mercury to the top of the range 225hp, capable of 40 knots flat out and a comfortable cruise in the early 30s.

Axopar wants this and the 22 to appeal to a new breed of boater, possibly a first time owner who is after something that’s good to look at but also safe, practical and easy to handle that will look after them and their family.

The 22 set the tone but with the added comfort and security of a protected cabin on a boat that is compact enough to sit on a trailer, the Axopar 25 is likely to prove a popular choice.

LOA: 26ft 3in (8m) (ex. engine)
Beam: 7ft 4in (2.23m)
