British shipyard Pearl Yachts will be in the spotlight at Boot Düsseldorf from January 20th to 28th, in the huge Hall 6, among the most important and prestigious shipbuilders of the Show.
The Pearl 65 will take place, bringing together all the comforts of a superyacht in a boat that is 20.2 meters long (and 5,16 meters wide). This 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 hull design and exterior layout are the work of Bill Dixon, while the styling and interiors are by Kelly Hoppen MBE.
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 of a hard top with sunroof.
The hull, designed by Bill Dixon, aims to delivers seaworthiness. The relationship between weight distribution, wet surface area and balance is said to guarantee outstanding stability, great performance and reduced fuel consumption.
The shipyard will welcome visitors to an exclusive stand, which has been designed to reflect the innovative rebranding campaign recently launched by the company.
On Saturday 20th, the stand will host a press conference attended by, amongst others, yacht designer Bill Dixon, which will focus on new model development, and an industry first announcement.
Virtual Reality technology will also be on hand to offer visitors a tour of all the models in the range offered by the shipbuilder: Pearl 65, Pearl 80 and Pearl 95.
