The new flagship of Palm Beach’s GT range, the Palm Beach GT60, made her European debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2021. The result of extensive design work by the boatyard, it is the natural continuation of the acclaimed Palm Beach GT50. The family feeling is evident and confirms the goodness of this project that had conquered the public at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2019 with its performance and lines.
Palm Beach GT 60
The main strength of this boat? The performance at sea is similar to that of her smaller sister: a high-performance boat with great easy handling. The Palm Beat GT 60 features a good range (611 nm at 21 knots) and remarkable attention to the detail, with a very sophisticated and elegant design. Style and performance, therefore, on a boat with a very attractive design.
Highlights include a one-piece glass windscreen and large electric windows on the sides and aft. The GT60 is a boat built with a high-tech vacuum carbon fibre deck and structure that offers twice the strength of fibreglass, but at half the weight. A closed-cell foam core forms the main structure of the bulkheads, a high-tech method that further reduces weight and improves the boat’s durability.
Palm Beach uses vinylester modified into epoxy resin throughout its infusion, which is another proof of the brand’s commitment to quality and durability in construction. The hull is designed for semi-displacement cruising with a design derived from racing boats to be stable and perform at all speeds. The materials chosen and their positioning in the construction allow the PB GT 60 to have a low centre of gravity.
Palm Beach GT 60: the ultimate cruising boat
The boat’s reduced weight translates into lower fuel consumption: at 35 knots the Palm Beach GT 60 consumes around 340 litres per hour, powered by twin Volvo IPS 1350s delivering 2000 HP in total.
This boat was specially designed for those who love cruising with a craft that is both stylish and practical. Extensive use of wood makes the interior warm and cosy to make your stay on board as pleasant as possible.
