The Pearl 75, showcasing Bill Dixon’s sleek external lines and an elegant interior scheme by Kelly Hoppen (MBE), is the latest yacht to reach the shortlist for the International Yacht and Aviation Awards 2013.

The aim was to design a yacht that was totally unique to the market in order to redefine Pearl’s position at the forefront of innovative yacht design.

The brief included a unique propulsion system, a distinctive interior design and a host of exclusive features designed to create more on-board space than her competitors.

The largest of the Pearl fleet, the Pearl 75 offers owners four luxuriously appointed staterooms and a unique open plan galley, lower helm and seating area sheltered under a conservatory-style glass roof.

Kelly’s design ethos of balance, sophisticated use of texture and her trademark neutral color scheme runs throughout the fresh and contemporary interior of the Pearl 75.

Externally, a Jet Ski garage and a hydraulic bathing platform mean owners can carry a jet ski and tender without the need to take up valuable flybridge space.

The Pearl 75 also boasts the ZF series 4000 pod-drive propulsion system incorporating joystick control technology. This offers the owner joystick maneuverability and the option of operating the yacht without crew if preferred.

Powered by twin MTU 1250 HPs engines, the Pearl 75 can navigate comfortably at a cruising speed of 25 knots and a top speed of 30 knots.

With its gracious exterior lines, luxurious interior style and technological awareness, Pearl Motor Yachts and Kelly Hoppen have launched a vessel that pushes the boundaries of design and sets a new standard for innovation.
