The new Palm Beach 52 made her international debut at the 2015 Miami Yacht & Brokerage Show.

Palm Beach Motor Yachts also announced the upcoming release of the entry-level, the Palm Beach 42.

Both models feature a ‘flush-deck walk up’ from the cockpit to midships to assist in tying fenders or lines, particularly in adverse conditions.

This innovative new feature is a series of graduated steps that have been designed to not detract from the style of the vessel.

The 52 embodies Palm Beach’s contemporary styling, and the model on show featured two-staterooms, a generous down galley, a double companion helm seat opposite the helm on the main deck, a straight settee and L-settee in the salon  and a tender garage that is easy to access.

Powering the 52 are twin Cummins QSC 8.2 600 MHP diesel engines with a top speed of 30 knots, or optional twin Volvo IPS 950 725 MHP capable of more than 35 knots.

In the crowded field of Downeast style yachts, Palm Beach Motor Yachts are sleek and contemporary, offering a standout ride, seaworthiness and meticulous joinery.

The Miami Show was the most successful yet for Palm Beach, selling a number of models including multiple 52’s.
