“One of the fastest yachts in the world to use Volvo Penta IPS” – Volvo Penta
Palm Beach Motor Yachts has a strong history and relationship with the Volvo Penta team, and incorporating the power and reliability of their engines, with the efficiency of our construction, engineering and hull design achieves a beautiful synergy that simply dominates the open sea in terms of performance and fuel consumption. Customers can choose to include multiple EJS joystick controls in their motor yachts, which integrates with all the onboard propulsion systems to provide intuitive manoeuvrability and precision handling control using just your fingertips. The combination of these systems means you have aggressive power on command when you need it, incredible top speeds and high speed cruising, unrivalled efficiency from any similar sized yacht, and the ability to single-handedly dock like a pro when coming into port.
Palm Beach Motor Yachts offers multiple options for many of our models from power plant to drive chain, as well as navigation equipment, and the ability to choose your ideal layout and fabrics throughout the vessel. Our latest redesigned PB65s that feature full walk-around decks and new cutting-edge construction methods, have also shown superb performance improvements:
The PB65 will reach up to 39 knots. The fuel efficiency is also exceptional. The combination of an efficient engine, the hull shape and the low weight of vessel all bring the total cost of ownership down.
