Thanks to a joint work from Pearl Yachts and their US dealers, the Pearl 80 will be exhibited at the Florida show.
The upcoming Palm Beach International Boat Show, scheduled for March 28-31, will be the stage for the UK-built yacht Pearl 80. Featuring hull design by Bill Dixon and interiors by Kelly Hoppen, she is a luxury cruiser ideal for the Americas. The yacht sports amenities such a jet ski garage, a hydraulic bathing platform and a flybridge fully equipped for outdoor entertaining: these features should make it perfect for the Continent.
Only for the Americas?
The hull design and exterior layout are by naval architect Bill Dixon, while styling and interiors come from Kelly Hoppen. A large and protected aft cockpit leads to the salon through full-height glass doors. The galley wall lowers onto the room itself, allowing light and views to get inside and cancel the separation between the two spaces when guests or owners are cooking.
Below deck, the master room is – uncommonly – to bow, while the mid section is dedicated to two twin cabins and a full beam VIP is located further aft.
The yacht can accommodate eight guests and also features a crew cabin for two with heads and a laundry area.
Owners can choose between three décor options designed by Kelly Hoppen.
The best outdoor space is definitely the flybridge, which boasts a dining area and a bar with a bbq, fridge and icemaker, beside the second (or most likely the first) helm station.
Four different powertrains are available for Pearl 80, with the mightiest one good for a top speed of 35 knots and a cruise of 25.
The shipyard states – again – that Pearl 80 is made for the Americas, as the Dixon-designed V hull and 55 tons displacement make her stable in chop and current. Will it be successful in the Med as well?
