Discover the stunning Palm Beach GT50 Express at the 2019 Singapore Yacht Show

While developing its next model, Palm Beach identified a void in the refined high-performance marketplaceand the stunning new GT50 was born. The design philosophy was to create a visually elegant cruiser capable of 40 knots, with an economic cruise speed in the mid-30-knot range, and all in a yacht that was simple to operate and easy to own.

The Palm Beach GT50 Express will be on display at next 2019 Singapore Yacht Show (April 11-14) for its Asia Pacific debut. While the first GT50 Open has recently made its world debut at the Miami Yacht Show.

Initial sea trials hit the company's precise target top-speed projection of 40 knots and a cruising speed of 35 knots with a pair 600-horsepower Volvo IPS 800s. Moreover, at 35 knots the fuel consumption was only 40 gallons per hour (151 liters per hour). At 25 knots the GT50 sipped a measly 24 gallons per hour (90 liters per hour) or 1.3 miles to the gallon. These impressive figures make the Palm Beach GT50 one of the most efficient yachts available today.

"When I started Palm Beach almost 25 years ago, I had one over-arching set of objectives: to design and build the best-performing, most efficient and most beautiful yachts on the water," said Mark Richards, Palm Beach Motor Yachts founder and CEO. "The GT50 represents a culmination of the best of Palm Beach, and there's really nothing out there like it today."

The GT Series incorporates Palm Beach's hull design that results in less resistance to achieve plane while keeping the bow in the water. Each yacht slices through the water and avoids wasting energy to get up on top of the water.
