Grand Banks are pleased to release this two and half minute film that reveals the underlying relationship between the Classic range of Palm Beach Motor Yachts and their highly contemporary GT line of models.
Focusing on the PB55 and the GT60, the film morphs one model into the other to visualise their similarities, and their differences as we explain how this new sporty aesthetic emerged.
PB55. A TIMELESS, AWARD-WINNING CLASSIC.
Shortly after it was launched, the PB55 was the deserving recipient of the ‘Best Boat over 30ft’ award.
Making the most of her extended length and beam, the PB55 offers the broadest range of bespoke options. Owners can choose from stateroom configurations with either a forward or midship master as well as an upper or lower galley. Personal style can be reflected in a wide range of exquisite fabrics in the living and accommodation spaces.
As is customary with the Palm Beach Classic series, the salon, galley and staterooms are furnished in hand-crafted, glowing golden teak.
A NEW PRODUCT FOR A NEW CUSTOMER. FROM PB55 TO GT60, PALM BEACH PUSHES THE BOUNDARIES.
At first glance, the PB55 and the GT60 bear only the family resemblance of distant relatives. While one is a high-tech timeless classic that oozes the charm and style of a bygone era, the other is a super-sleek ode to modernism and speed.
However, look a little closer and their shared DNA starts to become more apparent. Both are designed and constructed using Palm Beach’s proprietary V-Warp Technology. This revolutionary process delivers class- leading speed, fuel efficiency and range, as well as comfort and ease of handling in all conditions. Both models display an ingenious use of ergonomics to optimise the use of internal space and offer a range of configurations.
But where they differ is in style and personality. The GT60’s pared-back aesthetic and use of carbon fibre combined with sumptuous internal finishes is futuristic when set aside the refined traditionalism of the PB55. In their different ways, both are exquisitely beautiful. But they are by design suggestive of different lifestyles and experiences on the water.
SUPER-SLEEK SPORTSTER. CUE THE GT60.
The GT60 is the ultra-contemporary model of the Palm Beach range. Designed and built using proprietary V-Warp technology, she’s an extraordinary combination of performance and style. She has a top speed of 43 knots but her efficiency in the water is such that she burns very little fuel to get there.
Her styling is an object lesson in the virtues of clean, uncluttered design – sharp and flowing lines, graceful curvature, smooth and highly durable surfaces, the GT60 has a sculptural elegance that is complemented by the chic and sophisticated materials and fittings that adorn her spacious interiors.
The GT60 offers unrestrained excitement on the water and unrestrained luxury at anchor.
