F I N D YO U R B E AC H The sea’s magnitude and beauty are nothing short of humbling. So when this boundless expanse is your playground, you need a yacht that lives up to the grandeur. Palm Beach designs every one of our yachts with a deep respect for the sea, passion for perfection and an understanding that, just as the sea is constantly evolving, so must we. We’ve always believed in pushing boundaries, in reaching for more, in never settling for good enough. We work tirelessly to deliver the most stunning yachts with incredible performance so you can cruise ever farther with prestige and grace. Meticulous craftsmanship, modern technology, impeccable style and unparalleled power work in perfect harmony for a difference you’ll feel every time you step onboard. Discover new waters, chase the horizon and find your beach.
P OW E R F O RWA R D Palm Beach has set the bar in performance, power and long-range cruising, thanks to our commitment to design evolution, innovation and enhancement. Upholding a Powerful Legacy Palm Beach has long been known for its hydrodynamic expertise, resulting in yachts with advantageous performance, efficiency and cruising speeds. Maneuverability and ease of handling come through electronic gear selection and optional bow/stern thrusters, and quiet operation and reliable propulsion come courtesy of our trusted marine engine partners. Designed to meet the most stringent performance classification for offshore vessels, your Palm Beach can take on any navigational conditions with ease. Unparalleled Performance Palm Beach delivers unparalleled performance, thanks to trusted partners Volvo marine engines and Seatorque enclosed shaft systems. Choose your preferred drive system—steerable pods directed by joystick control, or an enclosed, self-contained shaft-and-thrust bearing system— and revel in a degree of performance you can’t find in any other yacht of this caliber. Quiet operation, superior handling, minimal noise and vibration, incredible cruising speeds, and maximized fuel economy come standard on every Palm Beach yacht.
BEAUTIFUL AND STRONG The real value of a Palm Beach becomes clear over time. Our yachts are designed to last generations and to elevate each on-water experience. A Strong Foundation Long known for our rock-solid hulls, Palm Beach continues to up the ante. Every new hull and deck benefits from 100% vinylester resins and cross-linked, closed-cell foam core. Our monocoque construction bonds all bulkheads and interior furniture directly to the hull and deck. The combination of these construction techniques makes for a much stronger, stiffer and quieter product with an improved center of gravity. Add to that expertly painted hulls, and the result is a beautiful high-gloss finish that withstands the roughest conditions. All Systems Go Palm Beach engines and equipment are chosen not only for reliability and longevity, but also for ease of maintenance, which ultimately leads to less work at the dock and more time on the water. To put it quite plainly, our engine rooms are the best in the business, with fully molded engine room liners, state-of-the-art sound insulating materials and beautifully varnished teak engine room soles. Our mechanical systems are designed and engineered to be the most efficient and reliable in the business. No matter which power option you choose, youâ€™ll experience incredible economy, reduced noise levels and vibration, and an international service-and-support network thatâ€™s second to none.
NAUTICAL DESIGN NEVER GOES OUT OF STYLE Palm Beach emanates style inspired by the sea itself. Every thoughtfully designed yacht is infused with the perfect balance of enduring nautical tradition and modern grandeur, resulting in a sleek, graceful look that will never lose its charm. Luxurious Touches Down to the last detail, your Palm Beach is a work of fine art. Burmese teak, sumptuous furnishing coverings, solidsurface countertops, lustrous baubles, book-matched veneers, seamless joinery and hand-selected furniture make each yacht a working heirloom for its owner. Step onboard a masterpiece. Right at Home Light-filled salon. Spacious cockpit. Wide-open galley. Generous staterooms. Roomy heads. The list of interior spaces goes on and on. And while an abundance of modern amenities—home theaters, ranges, refrigerators, washer/ dryers and more—will make you feel right at home, our large power windows delivering breathtaking views of nature will remind you you’re anywhere but.
SAFETY & QUALITY

Built-In Reliability Upgrades to our facilities and equipment have allowed for process improvements that have benefited product development, overall quality and owner experience.

Expanded non-skid side deck walkarounds and stainless steel grab rails increase onboard maneuverability and safety for passengers of all ages. Excellent Warranty Palm Beach professionals exhaustively inspect every yacht off the line to ensure it surpasses strict quality-control measures and the highest certification standards. Our superior warranties reflect the confidence we have in the reliability of our yachts.

A P OW E R F U L H I STO RY In 1995, Mark Richards launched a boat-building business in Palm Beach, New South Wales, on the shores of the magnificent Pittwater. He had a simple philosophy: “Provide the customer with a product that’s as close to perfection as humanly possible.” For four years, Palm Beach built specialist sailing yachts and enjoyed a loyal following and much critical praise. In 1999, Mark and his team of expert tradesmen went in a new direction, adding powerboats to the mix. Palm Beach Motor Yachts, beginning with the original PB38, went on to win international and domestic acclaim. Today’s Palm Beach yachts continue to set the industry standard in both beauty and performance, with years of expertise, passion for the water and superior quality built into each sleek hull.
