Palm Beach Motor Yachts has delivered their largest and most outstanding vessel, the Palm Beach 70 to its Auckland owner in time for the America’s Cup.
It is a yacht designed to appeal to customers looking for a larger version of the companies impeccably built, efficient cruisers. Her interior is finished with golden teak, providing a timeless elegance throughout her three-stateroom layout.
The spacious flying-bridge Motoryacht provides numerous social areas to welcome family and friends aboard in large gatherings and more intimate spots. The Palm Beach 70 (22.84m) has a foredeck cockpit that puts passengers at the forefront to experience the yacht’s impressive performance.
This flying-bridge Motoryacht helps the builder fulfil its mission of creating impeccably built, performance-oriented yachts that raise the bar in the industry. The Palm Beach 70 builds on the Palm Beach 65, taking up the mantle of the flagship of the fleet, and backing it up with cruising comfort and efficiency.
The Palm Beach 70 is built on a semi-displacement warped-hull design with less resistance to plane more easily. Matched to a pair of Volvo Penta IPS 1350s, the hull achieves a 32-knot cruise speed and a top speed of 38 knots.
But a yacht is more than a hull passing through the water, and her onboard comforts are also an achievement. The Palm Beach 70 has a welcoming saloon with a helm station forward and a galley opposite. The galley has a U-shaped counter to allow the chef bracing points for meal preparation underway. The saloon has a pair of large L-shaped settees in each aft quarter, with a dining table serving the port settee. The entire salon benefits from large windows and the warm glow of golden teak. The aft deck has a transom settee with dining table flanked with access to the generous teak swim platform.
Below decks, there is a three-stateroom accommodations layout. An amidships master is situated to port with wide pocket doors opening onto the passageway, opening up space when an owner couple is aboard alone. A generous private head is forward with double sinks and a glass-enclosed shower.
The VIP stateroom in the bow features a queen berth on centreline. The guest stateroom aft to starboard has twin berths. The head compartment does double duty as a day-head, with an additional door to the passageway.
