Improve-it = Palm Beach 70

In January 2023 Palm Beach commissioned a first 70 model with extended bridge.  Unlike previous 70 with flybridge this new version of Palm Beach flagship model features an extended fiberglass bridge deck, adding space to the flybridge, and covering the aft deck with a rigid protection.  This area on previous PB70 was usually extended with an awning, in order to cover the aft deck from the sun.  The 70 is the current flagship from Palm Beach, and is offered in Sedan and or Flybridge versions.  Other options in the Palm Beach 70 are that for an upper or lower galley, and two or three double guest cabins layouts, plus a crew cabin at midships.  The Palm Beach 70 is powered by twin Volvo 1000hp with IPS pod drives or line shaft propulsion.  Palm Beach are renowned for being super efficient thanks to a unique hull shape design, and light weight construction, and the 70 is a confirmation of this consuming just under two hundred litres an hour at 25 knots, which equals to eight litres per nautical miles at that speed, with Volvo 1000hp and IPS pod propulsion combination. That surely makes it one of the most economic 21 meter yacht on the market today.
