Brief Summary

Pearl Motor Yachts is no stranger to making cool looking boats. Their previous three models, the Pearl 50, 55 and 60 are standouts in their class, in our opinion. But that just wasn’t good enough for Pearl, so back to the drawing board they went. And instead of making design changes to the existing models, they went ahead and raised the bar with some cool innovations. The result is seen here in this first look. Currently under development, it’s the new Pearl 75, and if first impressions are any yardstick, then this boat will most definitely measure up to the Pearl name. Italians take notice: soon your students may become the professors.

    Captain's Report

    Pearl Motor Yachts 75
    This just in...Pearl Motor Yachts has been back at the design table and what emerged is a luxury yacht befitting the flagship moniker. Italians take notice, there is a new kid on the block.

    Never Too Proud...

    One of the things we like about Pearl is that they are not too proud to take a concept invented somewhere else, embrace it, and try to improve upon it. Starting at the bow: Pearl has taken the conventional bunny pad, raised it slightly and moved it further forward. What better place to exhibit what is bound to be standard equipment on this yacht’s guest list? The concept reminds us of the hood ornament on automobiles used until these great chrome maidens went out of style in the ‘70s.And just behind, at the base of what appears to be a massive, single-piece windscreen, is a C-shaped settee and table. This is a great place to hang out and have lunch, or have cocktails at anchor, enjoying a sunset and watch for the green flash. This was a design concept first put forward about eight years ago by an Italian brand to some hooting and gaw-fawing by some northern Europeans. So now it is interesting to note that the Brits have given the idea their stamp of salty approval.

    Check out the raised seating at the bow and the sunpad forward. Aft is the hydraulically operated swim platform and PWC garage.

    Moving aft, we have teak stairs flanking a PWC garage and a hydraulically operated beach/swim platform. Notice too, the large hull side windows. These will be sure to flood each of the four ensuite staterooms in natural light, along with the glass on the main deck. Again, lessons learned from our friends in the land of amore.

    The Accommodations Deck...

    Just ahead of the engine room bulkhead are the crew quarters with hi/low berths for two. It’s accessed via a spiral staircase in the aft deck pylon. We like this crew placement because it helps insulate the engine room noise from the paying guests forward and puts the crew squarely in the thick of the engine room where they should be. This location makes it handy for the crew to check fluids in the morning, monitor hose clamps throughout the day, and keep an ear cocked for that unusual squeak that is usually a precursor to something going wrong.

    Four staterooms sleeping eight, all with ensuite heads, plus crew quarters.

    In the center of the hull is the full-beam master stateroom which is huge, not only because of the boat’s 19’6” (6.0 m) beam, but also because for the fore and aft dimension which is about 16’ (4.9 m). This means that the space devoted to the master of the house is on the order of 300 sq. ft. (28.4 sq. m.) which is a big cabin even on the Queen Mary! Forward of that is a pair of guest staterooms, each featuring twin berths and ensuite heads. These bunks will be narrow which is fine for owners wishing to cruise the Riviera. Those wishing to do some serious cruising might want to consider “L”-shaped layouts, doubles or a Pullman.

    Thoughtful Heads

    Please note that the guest heads have been carefully designed to separate the toilet, sink and shower so that two people can use the heads at the same time (actually, three people could, come to think of it.). This is a thoughtful design and solves a lot of timing issues between couples.Fully forward, the VIP stateroom is really different than anything we have ever seen in a bow cabin and we like it because it has two features we have never seen on a boat in this class. First it has a desk/vanity on its aft bulkhead, and it also has a love seat built into the starboard bow. The hanging locker is also fairly large for a forward cabin. (Builders take note.)That’s four staterooms, four heads, sleeping for eight in addition to crew quarters in a 75-footer, which is good and makes the boat ideal for chartering.

    The main deck of the Pearl 75 is both unusual and versatile. The galley is enclosed and reachable only from the saloon, and the main saloon is large and the forward area of it makes into a dining area that can be made larger or smaller, depending on what you need.

    The Main Deck...

    Aft is a large open deck tailor-made for al fresco dining. The aft and side doors are all electrically actuated. An interesting main saloon layout has sofas and seats everywhere, a TV on a lift system in the middle, three high/low tables – including the main dining table. The dining area and the table, can expand or contract, depending on the number of guests aboard. This is a very clever feature and recognizes that sometimes there are only two or three guests aboard.The galley is U-shaped and slated to have the best of the appliance world. Two high backed helm seats lie ahead and to port, and a settee and dinette lie to starboard.

    Wide open spaces and interesting accommodations are featured on the flybridge deck. Check out the sunpad next to the helm. Which is very Italian – eye candy for the helmsman!

    The Flying Bridge...

    A commanding view awaits the passengers on the bridge deck. While the preliminary drawings do not show a hardtop, rest assured, a hydraulically operated Bimini is in the plans. Chaise lounges adorn the aft deck, a Jacuzzi and U-seating with table to port. To starboard lies a flybridge bar with sink, barbecue, fridge, and ice maker. On this deck, the helm lies to starboard, and a bench seat with forward sunpad is to port. There is a lot to like in this layout, particularly the forward-facing companion seating.

    Specifications & Power...

    The Pearl 75 is slated to have a LOA of 75'5" (23.00m), a beam of 19'6" (5.98m), and a draft of 5'9" (1.55m). Displacement is 55 tonnes (121,254 lbs. – 55,115 kgs.), Her fuel capacity will be 1532 gallons (5800L), and water capacity will be 343 gallons (1300L). Power is supplied by four diesels driving through pod drives. Why four engines? Because at the present time no one makes pod drives big enough to handle the large wheels that would be needed for this boat with twins. As demonstrated in the Lazzara 75 LSX some years ago, the four engines with IPS drives are actually more efficient than twin V-drives. Also, having four smaller props means the boat will draw less water than if it has two big ones.The Lazzara 75 had the four diesels lined up side by side, but we actually prefer the staggered layout with jack shafts that Pearl is using because it makes maintenance easier. It also means wider engines can be used. While it may appear to make the engine room larger than needed, in fact it does not, as there are generators and a lot of other equipment that needs to be shoe-horned into this space. Pearl says that the boat will have a WOT of 32 knots and a best cruise of about 25 knots, giving it a range of about 350 nm. Clearly, Pearl Motor Yachts is making a boat that has taken a number of good ideas of other builders and combined them with some terrific designs of its own to come up with a truly noteworthy motoryacht. This will definitely be one to watch for, and if you want to be at the head of the line when the keys are handed out, the time to contact the builder is now.
