Palma Grand Tourisme
Fast Cruising Catamaran
Innovative, state-of-the-art design
The Palma Line builds upon the expertise of Nicolas Purnu, a long-time associate of Marc Lombard for multi-hull designs, and of Jean-Noel Lebrun, with 40 years of fiberglass works.
We offer fast, safe, very light yet exceedingly comfortable catamarans with overall lengths between 30 and 35 feet. Their modular designs meet the sharpest family cruising requirements.
The Palma Grand Tourisme features a composite coachroof.
Hulls are optimized for performance & stability. The deck designs reduce aerodynamic drag while optimizing the space available for the crew as well as movements on board.
The yachts are built in France in Charente-Maritime. The sandwich hull and deck use PVC foam for increased strength, weight savings, and durability.
Built for performance
With a square top mainsail, bowsprit, chine hulls, a 5.70 m beam for a 3.3 tons light weight the Palma Grand Tourisme is a fast and stiff yacht across all wind conditions.
The Performance Package offers up to 81 m2 for upwind sailing. A carbon rotating mast from AGPlus is also available and will add over 4 m2 .
Flexible navigation plans
Palma cats have two fins with a maximum draft of 0,99 m to let you sail and beach deep inside lagunas and harbours, further extending your navigation reach.
Great for friends & family cruising
Each Palma GT catamaran offers two aft cabins with 1.40m wide double-berths and 1.90 m headroom and may add smaller cabins forwards, directly accessed from the companionways.
Each yacht is equipped with a full bath on Starboard and may host a second bath or a small office on Port.
A choice of deck configurations
The Palma GT offers two choices of kitchen configuration: U-shaped behind the mast or L shaped at the yacht center. An owner's dressing room is also available on Starboard.
Options for long range cruising
All Palma units may be fitted with a water-maker, a 130 liter deep-freezer, solar panels, and two diesel engines or e-pods to sail in full autonomy for extended periods of time.
All Palma cats are equipped with Incidences sails, Z-Spar masts, Harken & Antal gear, Lancelin ropes, Ruchaud upholstery, Vectran lifelines, Lewmar Delta anchors, as well as NKE or Raymarine electronics and autopilots.
Standard configurations include a 13 m long mast. The Performance package delivers extra power with a 14 m long mast, a bowsprit, three high-end Aramide & CZ laminate sails, and two extra winches.
As options we also offer synthetic teak from Flexiteek for the cockpit floor as well as a composite wall between the aft cockpit and the deck saloon.
Your choice of engines
You may select one or two outboards engines, two electrical pods and their lithium battery bank, or two Nanni inboard engines.
If you choose a single outboard engine it will run coupled to the rudders. Using two engines will provide extra flexibility in tight marinas.
Easy to handle
The twin helm stations provide excellent visibility across the horizon and all around the yacht. With up to five winches, controls remain always at your fingertips.
The powerful yacht mainsails are controlled through dedicated winches located at the center of the aft cockpit bench. The low blocks of the mainsail tackles are mounted on Harken big-boat carts & rails to allow for fast and precise adjustments.
To free the gangways and to facilitate movements along the yachts, the shroud chainplates
are bolted on the roof sides instead of the hulls.
Davits are available as an option to store your tender behind the transom beams.
The right choice for the environment
The light weight of the Palma catamarans means their construction is a smaller drain on our planet resources compared to heavy cruising cats.

Equipped with an outboard engine and two sails, the Palma GT starts at 170 000 € plus VAT.
