[dropcap]P[/dropcap]earl Yachts, one of the UK’s leading luxury yacht builders, was present at the German Boat Show exhibiting the new Pearl 65 whose interiors are the result of their precious cooperation with the most in-demand British interior designer, Kelly Hoppen, whose studio also developed the interiors of the new Pearl 80 (see the picture gallery below).
The hull design and exterior layout of the two models, the Pearl 65 and Pearl 80 are by Bill Dixon. More specifically, the Pearl 65 brings together all the comforts of a superyacht in a boat that is 20.2 meters long (and 5,16 meters wide). This hugely successful model sleeps eight (plus two crew members) and is powered by 2xVolvo IPS 1200 engines, driving it to a top speed of 32 knots.
The saloon area with the galley aft is an extremely social space, with a bi-fold door that opens to unite it with the cockpit in such a way as to create one big welcoming rest and relaxation area.
The accommodation area contains four cabins, with the class leading owner’s cabin midship, the VIP cabin forward, a twin cabin to starboard side and a further bunk cabin on the port side. The yacht has three en-suite heads.
The helm station on the fly deck is in a forward central position, while the stern area has a perimeter sofa and a central low table, with shade provided if desired by the opening a hard top with sunroof.
The hull delivers impeccable seaworthiness. The perfect relationship between weight distribution, wet surface area and balance guarantees outstanding stability, great performance and reduced fuel consumption.
Pearl 80 – Picture Gallery
The Pearl 80 is offered with three alternative interior themes; ‘Studio’, ‘Taupe’ and ‘Luxury’. ‘Studio’ is bright and fresh characterised with stripes and rich browns. ‘Taupe’ has pale joinery contrasted by calming earthy tones such as fawns, ivories and warmer greys, whilst ‘Luxury’ has the feel of a chic modern apartment with polished surfaces, nickel and accents of black.
