Design Concept

The Palm Beach Motor Yacht range was inspired by leading edge yacht racing technology. Since production began in 1995, every model has been constructed using high performance structural materials to produce extremely strong, lightweight hulls that deliver superb performance and outstanding fuel consumption.

Over the years, ATL Composites has worked with Palm Beach Motor Yachts to develop and produce CNC-routed DuFLEX® bulkhead and floor components, cored with BALTEK® SB.100 end grain balsa and laminated with a high performance epoxy resin and reinforcements to the designers specifications to optimise the weight in their various models including the Palm Beach 65.

The Palm Beach 65 is the natural progression following the popularity of the Palm Beach 50, and shares the same high quality build finishes. Smooth and easy to handle, this luxurious motor launch can be handled by family and friends without the need for extra crew.


ATL Composites have supplied DuFLEX Component Packs for the bulkheads and floors, and additional Packs have been incorporated for soles, longitudinals and selected internal fit-out pieces. Fitouts are either fibreglass-taped in place in curved areas, or bonded into position with ATL’s FRP Bonding Angles for right-angle joins.

The DuFLEX components and other fixed furniture are structurally bonded to the hull and deck with Techniglue® R15 epoxy adhesive, providing strength and stiffness to the superstructure. The R15 is a toughened system with high compressive and tensile strengths, and has been formulated to produce a high strength bond with exceptional peel properties, making it ideal for the most critical applications.
