Palm Beach Motor Yachts’ flagship yacht, the PB  65 (70′ LOA, 19′ 2″ beam), was launched in 2009 to critical acclaim by owners.

Today, the model continues to be refined and adapted to each owner’s style, and the latest new build showcases an optional bowrider. The PB 65 benefits from 100 percent vinylester resins and a cross-linked, closed-cell foam core for durability, strength and weight reduction. Precisely crafted with a fine point of entry and a warped-V hull shape, the PB 65 carves through the waves with smoothness and ease. The narrow entry shifts the center of gravity closer to the center of the yacht, right where it should be for the perfect trim. While most yachts have a round bilge, Palm Beach yachts have only six degrees of deadrise for rock-solid stability.

A shallow draft (only 12 inches from the waterline to the bottom of the hull at rest) means effortless planing and cruising with less horsepower. Powered by twin Volvo Penta IPS 950s, the boat runs to a top speed of 36 knots and cruises at 30 knots. A light-filled interior with salon, staterooms and aft cockpit can comfortably host gatherings.

Detailed styling and luxury amenities enrich the cruising experience and bring comfort to a new level. You’ll find a tender garage, laundry and all the extras expected on a yacht of this scale, without losing an ounce of your space and freedom.
