New Luxury Motor Yacht From Pearl Undergoing Sea Trials

A new luxury motor yacht built by Pearl Yachts, has just successfully completed sea trials, and by all accounts, this Pearl is a real gem!

UK based yacht builder, Pearl Yachts introduced their new flagship, the Pearl 80, at the recent Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show . The new 80 foot motor yacht, which the company describes as “ bringing together sumptuous space with luxurious styling and outstanding levels of comfort” obviously stayed in the area, as she was recently spotted undergoing sea trials in the waters around Miami.

At just under 80ft, the Pearl 80 is the largest yacht that the British yard has launched, to date.

Unique Features of This Motor Yacht From Pearl

According to Boat International, the as yet unnamed vessel, is designed to accommodate up to eight guests split across four cabins, including a full-beam master suite, situated amidships. Two further doubles and a twin complete the guest layout, while the aft crew quarters allows for a staff of two people.

The interiors were designed by Kelly Hoppen, who says particular emphasis was placed on modern styling with a flair for fun and entertaining. Out on deck, guests can choose between the foredeck seating area or the superyacht sundeck, complete with wet-bar, spa pool, sun-loungers, electric barbecue and a retractable bimini top. The hydraulic bathing platform provides easy access to the water and can be used to store a Jet Ski as well as a tender.

As the company’s new flagship, no luxury or amenity has been overlooked. Setting the bar for yachts in her class, she is outfitted with reverse-cycle air conditioning, LED televisions in all guest cabins and a Fusion stereo system that can pipe music throughout the yacht.

She is powered by twin 1150HP CAT C18s, and can achieve a top speed of 30 knots. With a a maximum draught of just over 5ft, the Pearl 80 is ideal for exploring the shallow cruising grounds around Miami or Ft. Lauderdale!
