World debut for Bill Dixon designed Pearl 65 at 2014 Cannes Boat Show
Luxury yacht builder Pearl Motor Yachts is finalising plans for an exciting world debut of its Bill Dixon designed Pearl 65 at the 2014 Cannes Boat Show, taking place from 9th to 14th September 2014.
Standard features of this beautiful vessel will include a hydraulically operated bathing platform, air conditioning, hydraulic passerelle, generator, and teak decking.
Pearl Motor Yachts will be launching the new Pearl 65 Flybridge yacht at the high profile show alongside its renowned designers, Bill Dixon and Kelly Hoppen MBE.
This is the second of a suite of yachts to be built in a unique collaboration with award-winning naval architect Bill Dixon and celebrated interior designer, Kelly Hoppen MBE. What can we expect – “the innovative Pearl 65 brings incredible levels of style and sophistication to the yacht market” says the marketing material.
Pearl 65 promises to be beautiful in design, but offers superb sea keeping and maneuverability. Powered by either triple Cummins Zeus 600hp, Twin Volvo IPS 800hp engines or twin Volvo D13 shaft drive, the yacht will have a fuel capacity of 770 Gallons (3,500 litres), reach a top speed of 32 knots and have a cruising range of 350 nautical miles.
Designed with Kelly’s well known effortless, calm and elegant style, the vessel offers outstanding levels of comfort – with four luxurious cabins and additional accommodation for two crew members. Each room is synonymous with Kelly’s inventive use of texture and tone, and relaxing neutral colour scheme.
Like the Pearl 75, the Pearl 65 features pod-drive propulsion, incorporating joystick control technology offering the ability to operate the yacht without crew, if preferred.
The new Pearl 65 builds on the success of the phenomenal Pearl 75, which was launched in 2013, and reached worldwide acclaim when named as the best Motor Yacht under 25 metres at the 2013 International Yacht & Aviation Awards.
Iain Smallridge, managing director of Pearl Motor Yacht’s believes that the second in the series of yachts to be made in this special collaboration will make a real impact at this year’s Cannes Boat Show.
“The launch of the Pearl 75 exceeded all of our expectations, we were overw
helmed by the response we received – thanks to the unique elements both Bill Dixon and Kelly Hoppen bring to the Pearl range, and their drive for pioneering design excellence.
