Leading Performance and Fuel Efficiency
The Palm Beach GT60 was designed with a vision to deliver one of the fastest and most fuel-efficient cruisers in the world. The GT60 is the second model in the award-winning GT Series that couples a rare combination of both speed and fuel efficiency, thanks in large part to the unique hull design and light-weight carbon fibre construction. The GT60 is a product of our continuous pursuit of perfection, being designed, constructed and crafted by the hands of experienced sailing racers, boat builders and racing yacht experts.
“The GT60 is an absolute dream result, that our team worked tirelessly on perfecting over the past 12 months. To have such a beautiful boat wrapped around a twin-engine system, that outperforms similar sized competing products that use 3 engines—or twice the horsepower—is a truly remarkable achievement.” – Mark Richards, founder & CEO.
Speed & Comfort
The sleek curves captivate you at first glance, and her unparalleled performance alongside the boat’s impeccable fit and finish is guaranteed to leave a lasting impression. The layout of the yacht is designed around maximising entertaining spaces flowing directly from the large teak swim platform, through the transom access to the full beam cockpit and salon. Featuring a centrally located wet bar, with plenty of comfortable seating and large electric windows side and aft, you and your guests will love cruising as the world flies by at an effortless 40 knots.
The salon’s cleverly concealed large recessed sunroof adds to the fun of being on the water, allowing terrific airflow throughout the vessel, while the enormous single piece curved glass windscreen give you exceptional visibility and further opens up the main space. Forward of the salon is the new walk-around carbon fiber helm station that continues the hand-sewn diamond-stitched quilted seating, and has been ergonomically designed to put every control within reach, exactly where you need it.
The GT60 is constructed with high-tech vacuum infusion in the hull, deck and cabin to deliver the most durable and light-weight build, so you can cruise faster, further and for longer. Her signature warped semi-displacement hull design uses a fine entry at the bow to slice through the water, with the hull designed to remain in the water rather than exerting unnecessary energy to get above it on plane, resulting in a highly efficient and silky-smooth ride. The deck and superstructure are carbon fiber to maintain a low center of gravity and further reduce weight, while the entire vessel is infused with the highest quality vinylester resin to ensure she will endure the elements with confidence for generations.
Power and Features
Power is delivered by twin Volvo Penta IPS drives, with your choice of either the 725 HP IPS 950s, or 1,000 HP IPS 1350 packages. To further enhance performance through weight distribution, the GT60’s full-beam baffled fuel tank and engine blocks are centrally mounted so the yacht is perfectly balanced. With the press of a button, the electrically actuated tender garage opens at the transom, revealing the 10′ alloy RIB tender that’s concealed beneath the cockpit. The tender is stowed on our custom launch rails, with the 20HP outboard in place for swift and easy deployment. The foredeck features a large comfortable sun pad, accessed safely and easily via the walk-around side-decks with polished stainless grab rails. The accommodations include a spacious lower galley and master stateroom amidships, and a forward VIP stateroom. Both accommodations have ample storage, and include their own private full ensuites.
