Pearl Yachts, which celebrates its 20th anniversary this year, is to enter the superyacht market with the announcement that it intends to unveil its brand new flagship - the Pearl 95, at the next Cannes Yachting Festival.

The Pearl 95 continues the design collaboration between Bill Dixon and the reputed British designer Kelly Hoppen.

The new Pearl 95 is desribed as being both aerodynamic yet practical with plenty of glazing to illuminate the interior and add to its sense of spaciousness. The 95 takes the sporty ethos embedded in Pearl Yachts culture into a semi-raised pilothouse design, with an innovative and voluminous interior. The superstructure maximises glazing, and introducing sweeping curves in the shearline enhancing the connection with the sea.

The feedback from past and current Pearl Yacht owners has strongly influenced the development of the new 95: the owner’s cabin is located forward on the main deck and features a full beam design maximising space and creating a class leading cabin. The main deck saloon is vast with space for a huge L-shaped sofa and a dining table for eight. A unique feature is the floor to ceiling fully glazed automatic patio doors on three sides of the saloon which when open allow for an unrivalled connection to the outdoors. The Sie Matic galley, manufactured to the highest standards is complimented by Gaggenau appliances and has access from the side deck allowing for separate and discreet crew access.

On the lower deck there are two double cabins and two twin cabins, all en-suite with owners given the option to specify a breath taking full beam cabin with walk-in wardrobe and large bathroom in place of the two double cabins. Crew accommodation for four in addition to a captain’s cabin is towards the bow. The yacht offers, reverse air-conditioning, a central vacuum system and Control 4 integrated audio and video system.

Exterior space is made up of a large area aft of the saloon on the main deck, ideal for dining; the flybridge features a Jacuzzi, extensive social seating areas and a sun pad, wet-bar with sink, BBQ, fridge and ice maker offers convenience for smooth entertaining as well as an external helm position.

The Pearl 95 achieves a top speed of 28 knots and has a cruising range of 380 nautical miles thanks to its 2 x MTU 16V M96 2400hp engines. Caterpillar C32 1925hp and 2 x MTU 16V M96L 2600hp are also available.
