The PB 55 was introduced at the Newport International Boat Show in September 2011 and was awarded “The Best New Motor Boat (over 30ft)”. The 55 was modeled on the company’s flagship 65 and comes with a two or three cabin layout and rear tender garage. Like all PBs each boat is styled to suit the owner’s unique specifications.
Built in Australia to the highest standards available, our factory enables all stages of construction to occur in one facility under the watchful eye of proprietor, Mark Richards. Utilizing solid works 3D design programs coupled with computerized CNC systems and state of the art tooling ensures precise construction.
Latest generation E glass, vinyl ester, epoxy resins and stitched multi-axial fabric over Corecell linear foam are used to provide a very strong, but lightweight hull and deck. All bulkheads and fixed furniture are structurally bonded to the hull and deck for superior strength and rigidity like a performance racing yacht. Each model is engineered with proprietary noise silencing materials and the exclusive Quiet Chine © hull to provide a tranquil environment while aboard.
Palm Beach uses Volvo marine engines and world-class equipment, but will build to client specifications if alternatives are preferred. All engine and ancillary equipment sit atop fully isolated and decoupled engine mounts to reduce noise and vibration. The engine room consists of loaded vinyl acoustic isolation panels, preventing noise from moving outside of the engine room into the boat’s living area.
Palm Beach Motor Yachts is always looking to the future to ensure we stay at the forefront of technology and design. We pride ourselves on perfection and refinement and this is reflected in the quality of our vessels.
Welcome to our beach.
Our range is inspired from leading edge yacht racing technology and Mark’s experience at the pinnacle of yacht racing in global competition. In applying these philosophies to the design of his classically styled range of motor yachts, he has created a range that offers so much more to the astute boat owner.
Stability and agility are paramount and uncompromised. A trip offshore in rough conditions delivers superb performance with a fine bow entry and warped hull, providing outstanding fuel consumption and comfortable cruising speeds. Maneuverability and ease of handling comes through hydraulic steering, electronic gear selection and optional bow/stern thrusters.
All engine and ancillary equipment sit atop fully isolated and decoupled engine mounts to reduce noise and vibration. The engine room itself consists of loaded vinyl acoustic isolation panels, preventing noise from moving outside of the engine room into the boats living area.
The internal fit out is not unlike that of a high tech racing yacht where the bulkheads and fixed furniture are structurally bonded to the hull and deck further reinforcing the strength and lightweight properties of the hull. When it comes to internal fit out, we offer owners with a choice of either our traditional finish dominated by polished Burmese teak in conjunction with handcrafted joinery or our Contemporary finish. While still using teak trimming, our Contemporary finish utilizes more soft furnishings and composite materials to provide a more modern feel while maintaining our high quality. The choice is yours and as with all Palm Beach Motor Yachts, the fit out is entirely custom to suit each owner.
