The French shipbuilder Jeanneau delivered seven new powerboat models including three in Prestige series – Prestige 630, 680S and 530 – as well as four other inboard and outboard boats: Leader 30, Merry Fisher 895, Merry Fisher 795 Marlin and Cap Camarat 6.5 BR.

For the 2017 season, Prestige is announcing two major new models, one of which is the Prestige 560. This new Prestige features the original shape of the Prestige 550, yet offers additional advantages. Her new swim platform is elongated and affords the same easy access developed for the range, with an automatically deploying staircase. Her interior has been modified as well. Luxurious and bright, the layout of the Prestige 560 offers great comfort and clever design features.

For engine power, the Prestige 560 is equipped with two Cummins Zeus pods with integrated flaps. This equipment is standard and is part of a large package comprising, among other things, autopilot, skyhook (virtual anchor), and software suite. The new Prestige 560 will be presented at the Yachting Festival of Cannes this year. The Prestige 560 will also be available in Sportfly version.

Prestige 560 aside, the new Prestige 630 will adopt the innovations by Garroni Design. She offers a hull and deck plan in keeping with the heritage of previous successful Prestige models. By J&J Design, the wide hull allows space for a larger living area forward: the exterior becomes a place for relaxation, while interior volumes are optimised.

The Prestige 630 adopts the technical attributes of the Prestige DNA, offering a Volvo IPS 950 engine for easy handling, quiet cruising and greater autonomy. The living space is also abundant. With a wide glass door that opens fully to the deck, her central galley becomes a link between the exterior and interior. A bar, entirely open to the cockpit, facilitates maximum enjoyment of life on the water. The interior saloon features exceptional volume. Wide glass panels ensure maximum light, as well as an incomparable panoramic view from the interior.

Adopting the spirit of the Prestige 680, the new Prestige 630 offers a vast flybridge, thoughtfully designed and created for relaxation and comfort on board. The private living space combines a lounge area with a bar galley and a large forward sundeck. The aft saloon extends across the width of the flybridge, with a telescopic table leg that converts the saloon into an additional sundeck. Paired with fine materials and a harmonious selection of finishes, the grey oak creates a luxurious, refined interior.

This new model for 2017 also features the much-appreciated concept of an independent access to the Owner’s cabin, a concept that has been developed across the line. The entire layout of this yacht minimises the use of steps, so that the head and shower compartment become an extension of the cabin, in a fluid design.

The VIP cabin also benefits from a selection of fine materials and bright natural lighting through large, lateral windows. An attractive head and shower compartment contribute to the relaxed atmosphere. The third cabin, which can be laid out according to preference, includes optional convertible beds to convert two single berths into one double berth, and vice versa. These cabins benefit from an ideal layout, with a deck dedicated to guests and separate from the Owner’s cabin. Each private living space is accessed via its own staircase.

Prestige also announces the launch of the Prestige 680S. Her concept of the Sportfly features a large sliding glass sunroof that opens the saloon to the outdoors, instantly transforming the interior space. Integrated into her sporty design, the flybridge boasts a fully equipped helm station as well as an inviting saloon. 

Jeanneau is creating a new line, the Bow Rider, with the launch of the Cap Camarat 6.5 BR. Multi-faceted, this new Cap Camarat offers a new vision of powerboats for varied use. Her wide, central passageway offers direct access from the forward cockpit to the aft cockpit, and facilitates movement about the deck.

She ensures safety at sea with a wraparound protective windscreen. Copious storage further contributes to the comfort and enjoyment of all who spend time aboard. She was inspired by Scandinavian style and cleverly adapted for Mediterranean cruising.

The wide passageway from the forward to the aft cockpit will appeal to those who love fishing. There are two sundecks (forward and aft). The Cap Camarat 6.5 BR offers a harmonious blend of sports and leisure.

Thoughtfully designed and created for cruising, the Merry Fisher 895 features an incomparably bright interior and even greater comfort on board for shared moments of fun and relaxation. This new signature model extends the Merry Fisher line. With more light and enhanced comfort on board, the new 895 benefits from the latest advantages of the line.

Her remarkably bright interior is due to wide windows in the helm station, affording impressive sea views. In the cabin (separate, fully enclosed), the window is also enlarged to benefit from an exceptional view of the exterior. Comfortable design details abound. The cockpit benefits from an L-shaped saloon, reclining seatbacks and cup holders in the armrests. The optional forward sundeck, in addition to the generous aft sundeck, affords an opportunity for relaxing in the sun.

This all-new Merry Fisher features an opening side gate, a recessed sidedeck, as well as a generous storage capacity. The main cabin has wide windows and is equipped with a head with shower and marine WC.

In addition to her contemporary design and assertive personality, the new Merry Fisher 795 Marlin offers real comfort at sea and quality of life on board.

Her layout and equipment on board ensure safe cruising. Her proven hull is stable and fast, for improved performance. Her single outboard engine enables fuel-efficient cruising. With her adventurous style, this “SUV of the seas” boasts a multitude of possible uses. According to her configuration, the Merry Fisher 795 Marlin can favour fishing or family cruising.

She features a large, 3-panel sliding glass door aft, wide side doors, and wide sidedecks for safe and easy movement between the helm station and the cockpit.

In fishing mode, maximum space on deck can accommodate, according to the options selected, all the dedicated equipment for fishing, such as livewell, rod holders, roller on the gunwale, as well as an exterior helm station. The third bolster seat facilitates fishing with friends.

In the family cruising mode, the Merry Fisher 795 Marlin combines comfort and shared living spaces. The model includes a bench seat with backrest, behind the wheelhouse, sheltered from the wind. This faces the larger, comfortable cockpit saloon, which transforms into a sundeck. The larger aft platform facilitates movement about the deck.

These two versions can be equipped with an enclosed head compartment, with marine WC.

The new Leader 30 carries the DNA of the line and makes a statement with a sporty hull design by Michael Peters Yacht Design. The design owes its elongated profile to the talents of Garroni Design.

Long, continuous windows in the hull lengthen the silhouette of this model. The generously sized platform affords access to a large storage locker. The layout of the cockpit is the characteristic of a Leader, with a luxurious contemporary design and enhanced comfort for life on board. 

The adjustable seatback of the co-pilot bench seat offers the choice between a cruising position and a saloon/sundeck position. The aft and side seatbacks recline to transform the space into a large, longitudinal sundeck. Large windows in the hull bathe the interior in natural light and offer an incredible view of the sea.

She boasts bulkheads in straight-grain walnut, furniture with lacquered finish, a large hanging locker to the starboard, and numerous storage compartments (optional wall cabinets). The saloon also transforms into a double berth.

Leader 30 will be presented at the Yachting Festival of Cannes in September, and the Leader 33 will be exhibited at the Paris Boat Show in December.
