UK boatbuilder Pearl Yachts are set to be the stars of the French Riviera at this year’s Cannes Yachting Festival 2019 from 10th to 15th September. Pearl Yachts intent to make a statement in displaying their largest flagship models Pearl 80 and the Pearl 95, measuring 29.2 metres, the Pearl 95 is the largest model in the Pearl Yachts line-up and made its world premiere at the Monaco Yacht Show 2018. Recognised for her opulent, yet simple interior design by Kelly Hoppen, this year, the Pearl 95 gets to Cannes as multiple awards winner: best interior, best layout, overall innovation.
The second-largest yacht in the Pearl Yachts fleet, the Pearl 80 also received industry-wide recognition earlier this year, when it was nominated for industry boat awards.
Pearl Yachts Managing Director, Iain Smallridge, comments on the British yard’s attendance in Cannes this year: “It’s great to be at Cannes with two best selling models: the Pearl 80 and Pearl 95, now award-winners and nominees.
It’s an honour to be recognised by the industry,” Smallridge continues, “and we’re immensely proud of the results of our hard work and successful collaborations with the designers of these yachts.
We’re excited to once again welcome guests onboard both yachts in September, and are looking forward to seeing plenty of new and familiar faces.”
Renowned British designer Bill Dixon is responsible for the sporty exterior design of the PEARL 95, where a semi-raised pilothouse merges seamlessly with the glazed Deep-V hull for a commanding silhouette.
Prospective owners are offered the opportunity to make their stamp on the yacht, with a choice of three luxurious interior design themes from designer Kelly Hoppen, all featuring particularly impressive amounts of natural light throughout.
The opportunity to tour the yacht experiencing the full splendour of the exquisite interior, scrutinise the superior craftsmanship and see for themselves the attention to detail that has been considered throughout.
With luxurious materials such as marble, teak, ceramic and linen used across both yachts, an onboard tour will delight all the senses and enable clients to fully visualise their own dream yacht.
