Palm Beach started the 2019 season under a wave of new creative enthusiasm for a new line of yachts, branded as the GT series. The first of the new exciting line up is the GT50, later to be joined by a proposed GT60 and GT70. “For me, the GT50 represents a merger of 35 years of boatbuilding passion and design experience to create a very exciting new series, with a clear goal of creating the most efficient powerboat in the world today. Watch this space for more.” – Palm Beach Motor Yachts CEO Mark Richards.
