Pearl Yachts has launched its first ever superyacht, a 29.2-metre (95-foot) semi-custom flagship that will be given a world premiere at the upcoming Cannes Yachting Festival in September.
The British shipyard’s new vessel, the Pearl 95, which was announced in June and coincides with its landmark 20th anniversary celebrations, is a big jump up in size from previous flagship Pearl 80. Continuing the successful relationship nurtured during the design of Pearls’ 65 and 75 models, the yard is again working with Dixon Yacht Design for the exteriors and Dragon’s Den star Kelly Hoppen MBE on the interiors.
Pearl Yachts’ first superyacht is described as cohesive with the style of smaller vessels, but “even more luxurious and breath-taking… the Pearl 95 offers everything the Pearl client has come to love but on a considerably larger scale.”
As well as aesthetic cohesion with the rest of Pearl’s offerings, the 95 is designed to continue the manoeuvrability and ‘feel’ of its sister yachts.
Generous glazing and smooth, clean lines add to the airy atmosphere and sense of space inside, while a large forward sundeck and transom beach club make the most of exterior spaces. The transom setup is a particularly eye-catching feature, with the Jet Ski hatch opening up to reveal the tender garage, and after the tender is launched this space can be utilised as an additional relaxation zone with sun loungers and a bar.
The 95’s main saloon includes floor-to-ceiling side doors for an ultra-connected gateway to the great outdoors. The roomy spot also includes plenty of space for an L-shaped sofa and eight-person dining table.
Accommodation aboard the Pearl 95 is for up to 10 guests across four or five en-suite cabins (depending on configuration), with a full-beam owner’s cabin boasting forward-facing panoramic views. If opting for four cabins, owners can instead enjoy an additional VIP suite with walk-in wardrobe and large bathroom in place of the two doubles. Crew quarters can house five, with a captain’s cabin forwards towards the bow.
Power on the 95 is drawn from twin 2400hp MTU 16V M96 engines, giving the yacht a top speed of 28 knots. Other configurations will also be available.
