Palm Beach Motor Yachts has scheduled the world premiere of its new flagship, the Palm Beach 70, at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.

The Palm Beach 70 is a flybridge design with three staterooms. There’s a foredeck cockpit that Palm Beach calls a “bowrider,” for guest relaxation similar to that aboard commuter yachts.

Top speed is expected to be 38 knots with a 32-knot cruise speed. Standard power is a pair of Volvo Penta IPS1350s. Draft is 4 feet 3 inches, allowing for shallow-water cruising.

Are optional engines available? Yes. Hull No. 1 is being outfitted with optional 1,000-horsepower Volvo Penta D13s. According to Palm Beach, those engines provide a 24-knot cruise speed and a range of 793 nautical miles at "fast cruise."
