The Palm Beach GT50 is without a doubt, one of the sexiest high-speed luxury cruisers on the market today. Kitted out with Twin Volvo IPS 800s, she achieves blistering speeds in the early 40s matched with an ultra-smooth ride thanks to her uniquely shaped hull.
The factory recently worked on the build of a customised GT50 Express due to a return-customer request,
“With the design of this GT50 Express, we were set the brief by the owner to provide a fitout that drew inspiration from the owners previous boat, a beautiful Palm Beach 50 launched in 2005. The challenge was to blend the traditional styling of the Palm Beach 50 with the contemporary GT,” says Production Design Manager, John McKay.
This was the fifth GT50 built, and a perfect blend of classic Palm Beach design and the elegant style the GT50 is known for…
“The result speaks for itself a clean, warm, modern and tasteful reinterpretation of a Palm Beach classic,” remarks John.
“The owner was heavily involved in the design and build of the boat tweaking the design and driving the overall vision. We worked with the warmth of timber. Teak being chosen by the owner to give more character and warmth to the cabins. We even managed to fit some items from the previous boat. Bespoke door handles cast with the PB logo found a place in the new build.”
“Being a return customer they already understood the benefits of owning a Palm beach. We are lucky to have such great clients to work with that makes the design and build process enjoyable for everyone involved,” says John.
