THE NEW PEARL 72 DESIGN HAS BEEN REVEALED, PROMISING A HOST OF FEATURES NEW TO THE SIZE-CLASS
The British yacht builder has announced a new 72’ flybridge yacht that features two master cabins, a total of four en-suite guest cabins, and a crew cabin – plus a garage for large tender and a jet ski..
Pearl Yachts have officially revealed the Pearl 72 project during a press conference at the Cannes Yachting Festival. The model features the latest edition of Bill Dixon’s coordinated exterior design and naval architecture, as well as the celebrated new interior design theme “Indulgence” by Kelly Hoppen CBE. In terms of layout, the Pearl 72 adds a unique introduction to the size-class: two Master Cabins. One is forward with a private entrance, as typically seen on much larger yachts, and the second is full beam amidships. There are two more en-suite double cabins plus accommodation for the crew, in addition to an exceptional garage, with space for a William 345 tender (or similar) and a jet ski.
At the event, Smallridge said, “We are delighted to reveal the latest addition to the Pearl Yachts fleet, the Pearl 72. She makes good on the Pearl promise by offering owners so much more than competing yachts of the same size. The forward master cabin has the luxury of a private entrance, while the master cabin amidships is full beam. In addition to providing an ideal solution for co-owners who enjoy the yacht together, the innovative layout allows owners to enjoy a beautiful view even when moored stern-to in a marina. And there is no better yacht for thrill-seekers; the Pearl 72 sports an incredible garage that raises the bar in this sector of the market. Imagine all of that plus two further en-suite double guest cabins, an enormous flybridge and a beach club!”
Modern Exterior Design
About the 22-metre Pearl 72 with a 5.7-metre beam, Exterior Designer Bill Dixon said, “Every element of the 72’s design follows from the core identity that she is a Pearl. But with this new yacht, we have evolved to a higher level. The hull glass has been expanded for a more modern look, combined with the sporty stance which she inherited from the recent Pearl 62 – a marker of the new generation. The lines are as elegant as ever, now a bit sleeker and more streamlined, and the use of spheric glass gives her curves in all the right places. As for the layout, we were as shrewd as ever to use the available space to our maximum advantage. The flybridge is full length to accommodate unexpected amenities and leave plenty of space for the owner’s choice of layout.”
