Palm Beach Performance
Palm Beach has long been known for our hydrodynamic expertise, resulting in yachts with advantageous performance, efficiency and cruising speeds. We’ve honed this incredible performance over the decades with particular concentration on the following key factors:
FINE ENTRY & WARPED-V
No other yacht on the water maximizes hull efficiency as expertly as Palm Beach. Our hulls are precisely crafted with a fine point of entry that carves through the waves with smoothness and ease. This narrow entry shifts the center of gravity closer to the center of the yacht–right where it should be for perfect trim. Whether running down sea, into the sea or across seas, our hulls track like sports cars.
FORM STABILITY & LOW VERTICAL CENTER OF GRAVITY
Perhaps the single most important key to onboard comfort is stability. Most yachts rock back and forth while idling or at rest, but a Palm Beach maintains a steady balance. Our hulls feature an exceedingly low center of gravity, and while most yachts have a round bilge, Palm Beach yachts boast a more sophisticated build with only 6 degrees of deadrise. The result is rock-solid stability.
Palm Beach yachts boast remarkable visibility. Our yachts’ single-level layout means you can see nearly every part of the yacht from anywhere onboard (excluding, of course, the flybridge, which rises above the main level). Designed with full walk-around sides and power windows, your views of nature are clear and bright.
CE CATEGORY A RATING
Designed to meet the most demanding benchmarks for offshore performance, your Palm Beach can take on any navigational conditions with ease. A CE Category A rating is the most stringent performance classification for offshore vessels. Yachts in this category are largely self-sufficient and designed for extended voyages in winds of over 40 knots and waves greater than 13 feet. Palm Beach construction standards don’t merely qualify for Category A—they easily surpass it.
