Pearl 62 Designed by Dixon and Hoppen To Premiere at Boot Dusseldorf 2020
New Pearl 62 by British brand Pearl Yachts features Bill Dixon exterior and Kelly Hoppen interior, and joins existing 65, 80 and 95 models.
Pearl Yachts will stage the world premiere of the Pearl 62 at the 51st edition of Boot Dusseldorf (January 18-26, 2020), with the newcomer joining the current 65, 80 and 95 models.
The new model succeeds the Pearl 60, the British brand’s most popular model to date. Equipped with a choice of twin Volvo IPS engines, the Pearl 62 is expected to have a top speed of up to 33 knots and a cruising range of 300 miles.
The new model was developed by Pearl’s usual team of renowned yacht designer Bill Dixon for exterior, and celebrity interior designer Kelly Hoppen MBE, who has worked with the likes of David and Victoria Beckham.
Measuring 18.6m (61ft) in length with a beam of 5.3m (17ft 4in), the Pearl 62 features an aft-galley layout and four guest cabins including a full-beam master suite with private entrance. Arguably the yacht’s signature feature is its large flybridge, which features three separate seating zones, a fully-equipped bar and a barbecue area.
Dixon said: “The stunning flybridge layout occupies the whole length and I believe we have succeeded in creating a class-leading design. The emphasis is on offering the owner a great lifestyle from the forward seating and sunbathing area to the aft deck and hi-lo platform, with great connection to the sea and dedicated storage for toys.”
Hoppen has created what she describes as a “chic, cutting-edge yacht interior”, centred around sleek detailing, from ribbed walls to luxurious suede bands on the cushions.
“Every nuance was considered for Pearl 62, from bespoke, forward-thinking storage solutions and gadgets to high-end detailing,” Hoppen said.
“This interior allows the owner to add their personal touches, which gives her a unique appeal. The luxurious appeal of a traditional superyacht was retained by using exquisite joinery and detailing along with my signature neutrals, ensuring every detail blended seamlessly.”
All newly launched Pearl yachts are covered by a comprehensive five-year warranty programme.
