New Model: Palm Beach 65 Flybridge

Palm Beach Motor Yacht from down under Australia has recently launched the 65 Flybridge model. This model builds on the standard 65 launched more or less a year ago, with Palm Beach adding a flybridge with second helm station up top. Traditional down East lobster boat lines are standard on all Palm Beach yachts and the 65 is no exception with a nice modern touch added by the coach roof windows. A six guest berth interior accommodation plan is standard on the 65, with an optional choice of having also a two cabins with galley down choice. A total of six different layouts exist for the interior, three for the lower and three for upper main deck. A two berth crew cabin is located to mid ship behind the guest cabins area. The additional flybridge although also customisable offers in standard plan a central helm with two co-pilot seats to both sides, an L-shaped dinette, and a free aft deck. Power is twin Volvo 700hp with IPS pods which deliver top speeds of 32 knots.
