Jimbo, a 2017 Palm Beach Motor Yachts 45, is an owner-operator-friendly, two stateroom, two head express cruiser on the market with Grand Banks for $1.29 million.

Jimbo is powered by twin, 435 hp Volvo Penta IPS600 diesels that are paired to pod drives. This 45-footer will reportedly spool up to 33 knots quickly, but dial it back to a 23-knot cruise speed for a range of about 325 nautical miles. The Seakeeper gyrostabilizer ensures a smooth and comfortable ride along the way. Volvo’s Penta IPS600 pod drives with joystick controls and bow thruster make maneuvering in tight spaces an effortless task.

Step aboard Jimbo through the transom door. The first things I noticed in the cockpit were the synthetic-teak sole, swim platform and the wet bar with Silestone countertop, two sinks, refrigerator and an ice maker. The extended swim platform is spacious enough for a few guests to catch some rays before taking a dip in the water. Rinse off with fresh hot or cold water at the cockpit shower and relax in two Italian folding deck chairs, forward-facing leather bench-style settee or the aft-facing leather bench-style settee. The cockpit is partially covered by the hardtop, offering guests the option of sun or shade.

Enter the salon via a starboard side door from the cockpit and the satin-finish teak cabinetry, teak drawers, high-gloss teak table and teak trim glow from the natural light flowing in through nearly 360 degrees of windows. Guests can relax on the portside L-shaped sofa with a removable teak table while catching the big game on the retractable 42-inch Smart TV with Bose surround sound, or join the captain on the portside companion bench-style helm seat and soak in those panoramic views.The aft galley is to starboard and has the following amenities:

  • Two-burner flush-mounted cooktop
  • Microwave, 110/120V 60hZ with magnetic wood cover
  • Solid Silestone countertop incorporating a large recessed stainless-steel sink with removable cover, designer faucet
  • Water purification system Seagull
  • Refrigerator AC/DC compatible
  • Dishwasher
  • Under-bench recessed disposal bin with Silestone cover

The helm station is starboard side forward the galley. Three large windscreens along with the large side windows give the captain an almost 360-degree uninterrupted view of the surrounding waters. The captain’s bench-style seat is wide enough for two and all screens, throttles and IPS joystick are within arm’s reach. The helm has the following electronics and navigation systems: 

  • Garmin navigation package
  • 8216 Color LCD display
  • Volvo Penta 7-inch MFD display
  • Garmin GMI 20 4-inch display on dash
  • Garmin B175 Transducer
  • Volvo Penta Autopilot
  • GMR 18 HD Radar
  • Sounder GSD 25
  • P79 Transducer
  • FLIR Night Vision Camera, Optional Upgrade

After a long day on the water, owners and guests can retire to one of two staterooms belowdecks. The master stateroom has a custom-tapered island berth with custom carpet and LED overhead lighting. The solid-teak cabinetry creates a warm and cozy vibe. Turn on the reading lights to take in one more chapter before falling asleep. Personal belongings are stowed in hanging lockers, stowage lockers and under-berth stowage lockers. The guest stateroom has a pullout double berth, custom carpet and LED lighting. Teak cabinets and stowage lockers provide plenty of space for VIP guests. Two heads are available: One full head that is shared and one day head. 

Grand Banks stated that “the PB45 is equally suited for casual outings or longer-range cruising. Enjoy luxurious touches from bow to stern, including all the comforts of home with her two stateroom & two head layout, contemporary fabrics, solid stone countertops, optional upgraded salon teak fit-out and a generous galley. The custom cockpit layout offers optimal socializing areas with generous, comfortable seating. The salon and spacious cockpit open together to provide an exceptional entertaining space, along with expansive power windows that allow natural light and sea breeze to fill the interior.”
