Named Best New Powerboat upon making its U.S. debut in 2010, the Palm Beach 50 exemplifies what it means to be a Palm Beach Motor Yacht. Sweeping classic lines, contemporary styling and fine materials complement the yacht's exceptional performance. The ergonomic helm is uncluttered and practical, clearly labeled, with a stunning classic wheel, joystick controls, and a large electric window adjacent to the helmsman. Enjoy a remarkably smooth ride and incredible fuel economy thanks to a perfectly balanced monococque hull with a unique shape and very low center of gravity. The Palm Beach 50's hull features an exceedingly low center of gravity and is designed to stay in the water throughout the speed curve. Add to that only 6 degrees of deadrise, and the result is rock-solid stability.

Treat yourself to an unforgettable experience of beautiful furnishings, luxurious details, thoughtful amenities and wide-open spaces which make the Palm Beach 50 as lovely on the inside as she is on the outside. Entertaining is a breeze in the open salon, with large electric windows and great 360° visibility. The single-level layout makes nearly every part of the PB50 visible from anywhere onboard as the large cockpit flows seamlessly through to the salon, with extra easy access from the aft galley flip-up window to the cockpit. You have the freedom to cruise your way with additional amenities including a full galley, luxurious seating and overnight accommodations. Wide side decks and power windows deliver a clear view of nature. Extended canvas stretches over the cockpit to protect from the elements, while open sides preserve your connection with the water.

All Palm Beach luxury yachts are impeccably crafted from the hull up to deliver epic performance, range and efficiency for a ride unlike anything you've experienced before!
The salon is on the same level with the cockpit just forward of the galley when entering through the sliding door. There is plenty of comfortable seating spanning both sides of the boat with a free standing custom table / ottoman available where needed. The 360 degree views through the extra large windows is spectacular. A 40" TV lifts from its cabinet with a touch of a button and is viewable from all seating positions. This is definitely a great place to spend indoor time while aboard.
