Pearl Yachts has officially revealed the new Pearl 62 model at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2019. The first hull in the new Pearl 62 line-up is currently under construction with exterior design by revered English yacht designers Bill Dixon, and interior design by multi-award-winning designer Kelly Hoppen MBE. The new Pearl 62 will be officially presented to the industry at boot Düsseldorf 2020. So what new features can we expect from this new arrival?
Measuring 18.6-metres with a beam of 5.3-metres, the new Pearl 62 boasts 4 double guest cabins including a full-beam master suite with its own dedicated entrance.
Designed around maximizing owners experience, highlights on-board include spacious flybridge, complete with a fully-equipped bar and BBQ area for memorable al fresco dining experiences with friends and family. Designer, Bill Dixon, explains: “On the exterior, the emphasis is on offering the owner a great lifestyle from the forward seating and sunbathing area, to the aft deck and hi-low platform, with great connection to the sea, and dedicated storage for jet skis and paddleboards.”
Equipped with a choice of twin Volvo IPS engines, the Pearl 62 offers impressive top speeds of up to 33 knots and a cruising range of 300 miles.
A long-time collaborator with the Pearl Yachts team, Kelly Hoppen has created a chic new design interior design theme for the Pearl 62. ‘Modern’ interior centres around sleek detailing created by contrasting materials and structured bespoke built-in furniture items. Commenting on the new design, Kelly Hoppen said: “The design for Pearl 62 is sleek and linear: clean lines and contrasting materials embellish the spaces and afford the interior a general feeling of refinement. The design ethos is all about the balance of finishes, textures, and palettes to create a timeless design that is both beautiful and functional.”
Hoppen’s trademark detailing can be found throughout the Pearl 62, from the ribbed walls to the luxurious suede bands on the cushions. All materials and furniture items blend to create a luxurious and modern interior. “Every nuance was considered for Pearl 62,” Hoppen continued, “from bespoke, forward-thinking storage solutions and gadgets, to high-end detailing. This interior allows the owner to add their personal touches, which gives her a unique appeal. The luxurious appeal of a traditional superyacht was retained by using exquisite joinery and detailing along with my signature neutrals, ensuring that every detail blended seamlessly to create a chic, cutting-edge yacht interior.”
The Pearl 62 was designed to have the four cabins and privacy of her successful predecessor and most popular Pearl to date, the Pearl 60, but this time with Volvo IPS engines positioned right aft. The challenge for Dixon Yacht Design, Bill Dixon states, was to match the feeling and volume of an aft cabin motor yacht, with the sleek, sporty, feature-led exterior associated with Pearl Yachts. Dixon explains: “The outstanding owner’s cabin has its own extremely private access right just forward of the aft deck. Three further guest cabins have their separate entrance forward, with the two twin guest cabins occupying the full width of the boat. The main deck has galley aft with a slide away window opening it up to the aft deck, and large areas of side glass add to the spaciousness of the large saloon and internal helm.”
“The stunning flybridge layout occupies the whole length and features three separate seating zones. I believe we have succeeded in creating a class-leading design, offering a unique blend of layout and features, with the Pearl Yachts style.”
The first hull in the PEARL 62 line is scheduled for completion January 2020. The Pearl 62 will be on display at the upcoming edition of boot Düsseldorf, held from 18th – 26th January 2020, we look forward to meeting the new arrival.
