INTRODUCING THE PEARL 80
SETTING NEW STANDARDS FOR LUXURY AND COMFORT ON BOARD
Warwick, November 2017. Pearl Yachts is introducing a new model in its range: the new Pearl 80. This yacht breaks ground for the yard with impressive manoeuvrability and exceptional comfort. With a length of 24-meter and a 6-meter beam, the new model stands out for the large, luxurious spaces and the outstanding levels of comfort, result of the successful collaboration between naval architect Bill Dixon, who developed the exterior, and designer Kelly Hoppen, in charge of the interior layout.
Following a long-term collaboration with the highly acclaimed Dixon Yacht Design, Bill Dixon has once again provided the distinctive exterior styling and hull design for the Pearl 80. Lines are aerodynamic with a huge focus given to both the large windscreen and the three tiers of glazing seen from each side. The generous strip of continuous windows close to the waterline make for an extremely well illuminated lower deck, whilst on the main deck the effect is of a conservatory roof flooding the galley area with light. Seen from the water, the boat is reminiscent of a dart or an arrow, crafted for speed and efficiency. Construction is in vacuum infused GRP and the yacht features a white gel coat finish.
Bill Dixon says “Apart from the obvious attributes of style and performance, the Pearl 80 wins by being adventurous in design. Offering clients unique and interesting design solutions to enhance tomorrows yachting lifestyle.”
Designer interior styling
Following its exclusive relationship with award winning interior designer, Kelly Hoppen MBE, 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. Clients can expect plenty of variety in fabrics and textures with highly considered contrasting tonalities. Both darker and lighter woods are used to add a sense of visual depth, whilst high-gloss, white lacquered ceilings provide reflection, adding to the sense of spaciousness. Known for her love of grey and neutral tones, each interior style contains Hoppen’s unmistakable hall marks, ensuring decor schemes that are as timeless as they are elegant. Clients can be sure that onboard they will relax in interiors worthy of a five-star hotel. A suite of Kelly Hoppen curated accessories such as table lights, vases, cushions and candles compliment the design.
Kelly Hoppen comments: "The design is traditional yet contemporary; clean lines and neutral hues enhance the overall space creating a sense of effortless style. We have incorporated touches of cool grey into my signature palette of taupe’s and beiges to creating a stunning, yet calm, interior.” She also adds, "I am delighted to collaborate with Pearl Yachts once again, and proud to be part of creating a design that I believe will stand the test of time.”
