British shipyard Pearl Yachts debuted its new 24m Pearl 80 at Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show last week, to fill the breech between the Pearl 65 and Pearl 95 models.
According to the yard, this latest concept was designed and built by naval architect Bill Dixon and interior designer Kelly Hoppen in answer recent client feedback. She has been built to combine fast speeds and agility; as such, her aerodynamic hull with white gel-coat, is reminiscent of an arrow.
Inside, the owner can relax in a private cabin that is flooded with natural light from panoramic portholes on each side, while guests are accommodated in two twin guest cabins with en-suite bathrooms, or a further VIP cabin.
Following requests for more discreet service, the laundry, crew accommodation and engine room have a separate access point on the starboard side, reducing guest's interaction with operations on board.
Key features of the design include three external dining areas located on the flybridge, at the bow and aft of the saloon on the cockpit. This allows for a full-beam saloon to be entirely dedicated to a lounging area.
Pearl 80 is offered in three alternative interior themes: ‘Studio’ with stripes and rich browns, ‘Taupe’ in calming earthy tones and ‘Luxury’ with chick polished surfaces, nickel and accents of black.
Powered by twin 1,800 hp MAN V12 engines, Pearl 80 can reach a top speed of 30 knots. She also boasts a cruising range of 300 nautical miles at 25 knots.
