Miami - The latest chapter in the rapidly growing Palm Beach success story, these sleek, contemporary, high-performance motor-yachts are the head-turning exception in a crowded field of Downeast style yachts. The unmatched ride, seaworthiness, and meticulous joinery work are hallmarks of every Palm Beach model, and the 52 is no exception. The 52 sport an innovative new feature that allows safe and secure passage to the foredeck while maintaining all of the stylish appeal to which Palm Beach customers are accustomed. These “flush-deck walk ups” consist of several gentle steps that progress up from the level of the cockpit to midships, making tying fenders or lines a breeze even in adverse conditions.
The first hull in the 52 line also features an owner-selected accommodations plan featuring two staterooms and a generous down galley that offers all the utility of home. On the main deck, the 52’s stylish helm sits opposite a double companion helm seat providing spectacular views in all directions. Stepping into the salon, a straight settee to port and a large L-settee to starboard melds seamlessly with the spacious cockpit, complete with forward- and aft-facing seating and plenty of lazarette storage. Hiding under the cockpit is a easily-activated tender garage that can be accessed without moving any cockpit furniture. The power package is comprised of twin Cummins QSC 8.3 600 MHP diesel engines with optional twin Volvo IPS 950 725 MHP available to European market. Top speeds exceed 30 knots with the Cummins package and are anticipated to exceed 35 knots with the Volvo IPS option. Palm Beach Motor Yachts is currently enjoying its most successful Miami show, having sold a number of models during the show, including a number of the all-new 52.
