Pearl Motor Yachts, one of the UK’s leading luxury yacht builders, is continuing its successful collaboration with award-winning naval architect, Bill Dixon and world-renowned interior designer, Kelly Hoppen MBE, with the launch of a new Pearl 65 Flybridge yacht.

Designs for the vessel feature Hoppen’s renowned calm and elegant style. Fresh and contemporary, the onboard accommodation has four splendid cabins – each of which showcase Hoppen’s inventive and elaborate use of texture and tone.

“The launch of the Pearl 75 exceeded all of our expectations, thanks to Bill Dixon and Kelly Hoppen’s pioneering design excellence," says Iain Smallridge, Managing Director of Pearl Motor Yachts. "It therefore goes without saying that we are delighted to be joining forces again for the all-new Pearl 65 Flybridge which promises to lead its class in innovation and quality.”

The Pearl 65 will feature pod-drive propulsion, incorporating joystick control technology. Like the Pearl 75, it gives the owner joystick manoeuvrability and the ability to operate the yacht without crew, if preferred. Powered by either triple Cummins Zeus 600hp or Twin Volvo IPS 800hp engines, the yacht will have a fuel capacity of 770 Gallons (3,500 litres), reach a top speed of 32 knots and have a cruising range of 350 nautical miles.
