Pearl Yachts announces its participation in the 2023 Cannes Yachting Festival, to be held from the 12th to the 17th of September. Guests at the stand will find the brand’s latest generation on display, with the Pearl 62, the new Pearl 72, and the Pearl 95, expressing the state-of-the-art of exterior and interior design by Bill Dixon and Kelly Hoppen CBE respectively. And for a glimpse at the future, the stand will host a VR lounge where guests can experience the soon-to-launch Pearl 82 for the first time.
While the largest and smallest of the range already have reputations at the Cote D’Azur event, this year will mark the first appearance of the Pearl 72. The brand’s thoughtful and fresh approach to the features and lifestyle on board has earned attention from media, customers, and competitors.
Anticipating the 2023 Cannes Yachting Festival, Pearl Yachts Managing Director, Iain Smallridge commented: “Cannes is our first stop following the 25th anniversary celebrations, which was a milestone for our shipyard and for our team. We joined the top players in the nautical world a few seasons ago – that was something gradual. With 25 years behind us, it’s possible to look ahead and see where this incredible trajectory can take us – we look forward to sharing our yachts, as well as our heritage and our vision with old friends and new ones, very soon.”
The Pearl range at Cannes Yachting Festival 2023
Pearl 62. Compact and Competitive
Measuring 18.6m, the Pearl 62 is the only yacht in the size-class to offer accommodations for eight guests across four cabins, including a full beam owner’s suite with a private entrance, plus the owner’s choice of a crew cabin or jet ski garage. Other highlights include an aft galley open to the cockpit, a vast flybridge, a foredeck lounge, and the benefits of Volvo IPS pod drive propulsion, including joystick control.
Pearl 72. Layout Leader
In terms of layout, the new Pearl 72 makes 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. 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. There are two further 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.
Pearl 95. Smart at Scale
The flagship Pearl 95 boasts a full beam owner’s cabin on the main deck, as well as an expansive beach club with fold-down buttresses. She has proven to be an award-winning combination of performance, style and quality, taking the title of ‘Best Layout’ at the World Yachts Trophies. The Pearl 95 went on to receive further recognition with the awards of ‘Best Interior Design – Power Yachts’ and ‘Best Main Saloon’ at the International Yacht and Aviation Awards.
