by admin

Following the success of the GT50, Palm Beach have now added the GT60 to the new GT range.

Launched from their factory in Johor Bahru, Malaysia, in early December, the first GT60 has been undergoing sea trials before being shipped to the US. The boat will have its first public showing at the Miami Boat Show in Feb 2020.

Mark Richards, CEO of Grand Banks, builders of Palm Beach Motor Yachts says the new GT range presents a new family of boats for Grand Banks. “We knew when we released the GT50 we had a winner with multiple sales throughout the world following the debut of the first boat”.

Richard’s adds that, the emphasis for the GT range has been on producing a high-speed fuel efficient boat with stylish elegance and a contemporary refined interior. The first GT60 recorded a constant 43 knots on trials and although fuel figures were not yet available, Richards says he is confident they will be exceptional low for a boat of the GT60s size and displacement. “I am confident they will be amongst the best in the industry”, says Richards.

Powered by a pair of Volvo Penta IPS1350, the layout and interior styling of the GT60 is to the highest quality and emulates what the company offers with the GT50, and in fact all of the Palm Beach range. The first two GT60s have been sold and Richards is predicting positive response from the Miami show.

To be released in 2020, is a new GT70 that will join the GT50 and GT60 as the third member of the GT family.
