December 2018 – Set to make a big impact at the first major international boat show of 2019, Pearl Yachts will exhibit a larger yacht than ever before at Boot Dusseldorf. Running from January 19thto 27th, the show will offer visitors the opportunity to explore one of the UK boatbuilder’s stunning new generation yachts, the Pearl 80.
In Hall 6, the favoured exhibition zone for the most prestigious boat builders, the spotlight will be focused on the Pearl 80. A dazzling class leader, at 24-meters LOA, this delightful yacht is perfect for relaxed Mediterranean cruising.
The Pearl 80 breaks ground for the yard with impressive manoeuvrability and exceptional comfort. At 24-meters and with a 6-meter beam, the new model stands out for its large, luxurious spaces and outstanding levels of comfort. The yacht is another splendid example of the design partnership that ensures the Pearl name is synonymous with exclusivity and superior quality – Bill Dixon designed the exterior layout while interior designer Kelly Hoppen was in charge of the interior.
The Pearl 80 turns heads with her aerodynamic lines, crafted for speed and efficiency. Huge focus is given to a large windscreen and the three tiers of glazing seen from each side. The striking strip of reflective hull glass close to the waterline makes for an extremely bright lower deck, whilst on the main deck the effect is of a conservatory roof flooding the galley area with light.
Award winning designer, Kelly Hoppen brings her magic touch when it comes to luxe interiors. Clients can expect plenty of variety in fabrics and textures with highly considered contrasting tonalities. Known for her love of grey and neutral tones, each interior contains Hoppen’s unmistakable hall marks, ensuring decor schemes that are as timeless as they are elegant.
The designers have optimised the interior space with a full beam saloon dedicated lounge area, an open plan galley arrangement that can be enclosed at the touch of a button and a breakfast /dinette area opposite the galley. On the lower deck is the beautifully appointed and class leading full beam owner’s cabin.Further forward are two twin guest cabins with the option to be converted into doubles. The VIP cabin is found in the bow with the double bed neatly set on the angle to maximise space. There is separate access for crew accommodation.
With its deep V high speed planing hull, the Pearl 80 delivers impressive manoeuvrability and speeds of up to 35 knots. She is equipped with two MAN V12-1800 with V-drives, allowing excellent weight distribution and easier maintenance. MAN engines are a tried and tested formula, credited with excellent power to weight ratio performance and an outstanding service network worldwide.
The yacht boasts three external dining areas; on the flybridge, at the bow and aft of the saloon on the cockpit. Sunbathing pads are located forward on the flybridge and also to the bow. Tenders or jet skis are stowed on the stern. The jet ski has its own garage, and can be launched easily without the deployment of a crane. Once launched, the stern area becomes a large hydraulically lowered bathing platform enabling guests to get close to the water.
The Pearl 80 is the result of a long period of design and investment in new models and represents a new generation of Pearl Yachts spearheaded by the awe-inspiring Pearl 95. The new launch development programme has already been tremendously successful with a number of sales already confirmed for 2019.
