Launched 25 years ago, the Prestige range of motor yachts success is founded on a few simple concepts: all living spaces on one level, 360° panoramic views, and an independent owner’s suite. The art of Prestige is in combining these concepts in just the right way. Passionate and demanding, Prestige owners seek to realise their lifelong dreams aboard an exceptional, refined motor yacht that is built to last. The brand’s clean lines, multiple living spaces and dynamic design have all contrived to maximise performance and comfort whilst allowing owners to enjoy the reality of practical luxury boating.
In a period when many other manufacturers have reduced their production, Prestige’s 30% growth speaks volumes about the popularity and reputation of this luxury motor yacht brand. Today, over 3,600 Prestige motor yachts, from 42 to 75 feet, cruise waters around the globe, and with more new models around the corner we are very excited at Ancasta to be involved with such a thriving brand.
YACHTS LINE - Sumptuous living spaces, easy movement about the deck, excellent sea keeping, and that unmistakable PRESTIGE style... The Prestige Yacts range is spearheaded by the flagship Prestige 750 and also includes the Prestige 620 and the Prestige 680 in both Coupe and Flybridge versions.
FLYBRIDGE LINE - An innovative layout with the galley aft ideally situated to service the saloon or cockpit, 360° panoramic views, masses of light and of course comfortable and functional. The Flybridge line from the Prestige 420 up to the Prestige 560 are all POD driven with each owners cabin having its own private stairway, providing an access independent of the public living spaces.
COUPE LINE - The Coupe Line is a perfect example of what happens when the best international design talents come together. Sharing the same internal layout as the Flybridge line and once again benefitting from POD drive while gaining the huge opening sunroof which opens the saloon to the wonderful sea air.
Each year the Ancasta Motorboat Club looks to create series of fun, informal events that are open to owners looking to take their boats to places they have not been before, to places they are perhaps not comfortable cruising to on their own or simply open to those who enjoy cruising in company. With a professional skipper, the cruises are safe and a fantastic opportunity to try new things and share experiences with fellow boat owners.
Following the success of last year and the feedback that club members are keen to venture further offshore, we are planning a cruise to the Channel Islands in May, a Swift Trawler rendezvous in August and the familiar end of season BBQ in the Solent.
More information will be released for each of these events shortly but if you are keen to join us, pencil in these date and drop us a line to tell us the boat model and number of people.

19th - 21st Aug 2016 - The Swift Trawler Rendezvous
29th -30th Oct 2016 - End of Season BBQ
The club is open to all motorboat enthusiasts and absolutely free to join.
Nick is our Prestige Brand Manager and has been an integral part of the Group since he joined to work weekends while at University! Nick took a full time position at Port Hamble shortly after graduating and was later delighted to move to our Lymington office where he soon assumed the role of Office Manager for this extremely busy branch of the network.
Excelling as a Brokerage Manager, Nick's appointment as the Prestige Brand Manager, seemed a natural progression, and we are thrilled to have him back in the fold of Ancasta's head office in Port Hamble.
Geraint is the Manager of our Chichester office and member of the Prestige New Boat Sales team.
Geraint joined Ancasta in 2007 having worked in the marine industry for over 15 years.
Involved in boating most of his life, Geraint was originally on the River Thames before moving to the South Coast in 1996. His specialist area is modern British powerboats, including Fairline, Princess and Sunseeker, so we are very pleased to have him as part of the Prestige new boat sales team.
If you find yourself in Chichester Marina, be sure to drop in and see the team!
Katy is a Yacht Broker and member of the Prestige Sales team.
Having been raised next to the River Hamble in Old Bursledon, sailing has always been a huge part of her life and she first discovered her passion for boat sales with Ancasta at age 18 when she was employed as a brokerage assistant.
Katy then spent the next six years gaining invaluable experience when she was asked by a local competitor to set up and manage a new brokerage.
In 2011 she was very glad to come back to Ancasta, and enjoy being a part of the Prestige Motor Yacht Sales Team.
Matthew began his experience with Ancasta over ten years ago when he started helping us out with boat shows before becoming a qualified yacht broker in 2005, and permanent fixture of our weekend team. Successfully selling boats for our Brighton office, Matt then moved away from the area for several years before returning to the fold and re-joining Ancasta as a full time broker in the summer of 2013. In June of last year, he joined the Prestige sales team, where his extensive knowledge of the luxury motor boat brand is being very well placed as is his passion for motor boating.
Lee Ball comes from a very strong background of 20 years as a Sales Manager in the motor trade, and that experience certainly paid off.
Lee joined Ancasta and with no previous involvement in the marine industry, took to the role like a duck to water. Selling three brand new Prestiges in very quick succession, he has obviously having found his niche, and is also the sole occupier of Ancasta's Mylor office.
Lee says he is thrilled that he convinced his young family to move to this beautiful and picturesque piece of Cornwall and so are we. He has proved to be an integral and much valued member of the Prestige team.
The Commissioning team is responsible for making sure the new boat is to your exact personal requirements and specification. Once the boat is commissioned you have a full handover day with one of our skilled technicians to talk you through all the elements of your new boat and its equipment.
Once you have taken ownership of your new boat you will be fully supported by our Aftersales team. One of the benefits which really make Ancasta stand out from all of our competitors is the strength and support of our Aftersales department. Our team of experienced technicians and engineers is dedicated to ensuring that your boating remains fault free during your ownership.
The parts ordering service is in place to support customers who have purchased boats through us, and other boat owners looking for a simple and efficient way to obtain spare parts for all makes and models of the sail and powerboats that we sell.
