News - Kelly Hoppen styled yacht to launch at Boat Show
Pearl Motor Yachts, one of the UK’s best luxury yacht manufacturers is to launch the new motor yacht Pearl 75 at the next Southampton Boat Show. Running from September 14 to 23, the builder will present its new Pearl 75 yacht alongside world-renowned interior designer, Kelly Hoppen MBE.
In a special collaboration with award-winning designers Kelly Hoppen MBE and renowned yacht designer, Bill Dixon, the luxury yacht Pearl 75 brings new levels of style, sophistication and features to this sector of the motor yacht market.
Laden with a host of unique features, the Pearl 75 yacht is the largest of the Pearl fleet. Created by the highly acclaimed studios of Dixon Yacht Design, she offers owners outstanding levels of comfort with four luxuriously appointed staterooms, an unusually spacious ‘lounge style’ saloon and a unique open-plan galley and dining area which are flooded with light from the conservatory style glass roof.
Externally a Jet Ski garage and a hydraulic bathing platform mean owners can carry a jet ski and tender without the need to take up valuable flybridge space. The Pearl 75 yacht also boasts the ZF series 4000 pod-drive propulsion system incorporating joystick control technology. This offers the owner joystick manoeuvrability and the option of operating the yacht without crew if preferred.
Kelly’s well-known design ethos of balance, sophisticated use of texture and trademark neutral colour scheme is featured throughout the fresh and contemporary interior of the Pearl 75 yacht.
Commenting ahead of the launch Kelly enthused “My aim with this exciting project was to instil a feeling of sanctuary in the Pearl 75, so it was perfect to use my East meets West philosophy. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Pearl 75 team and I’m thrilled with the results. I’m really looking forward to unveiling the Pearl 75 at the Southampton Boat Show.”
Strengthening Pearl’s commitment to producing the highest quality motor yachts in the world, managing director of Pearl Motor Yachts, Iain Smallridge, believes the flagship will make a real impact at this year’s Southampton Boat show. “The response to the imminent launch of the Pearl 75 has been very encouraging and there is a great deal of anticipation surrounding its debut appearance. With its gracious exterior lines, luxurious interior style and technological innovations, we are extremely proud to be able to launch a vessel that really is ground-breaking,” says Iain, and adds, “Our partnership with highly regarded professionals, Bill Dixon and Kelly Hoppen MBE, has not only redefined Pearl’s position at the forefront of innovative yacht design, but thanks to their individual expertise, it has also provided our customers with something that is totally unique to the market.”
Powered by twin MTU 1250 HPs engines, the luxury motor yacht Pearl 75 is expected to navigate comfortably at a cruising speed of 25 knots and a top speed of 30 knots. And Pearl certainly confirms its reputation as the yacht builder that thinks beyond the standard.
