Pearl Yachts in the United Kingdom has completed sea trials on Hull No. 1 of the Pearl 72, which is scheduled to make its public debut at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in late October.

Exterior design and naval architecture on the Pearl 72 are by Bill Dixon. Interiors are by Kelly Hoppen.

“The hull glass has been expanded for a more modern look, combined with the sporty stance, which she inherited from the recent Pearl 62,” Dixon stated in a press release. “The lines are as elegant as ever, now a bit sleeker and more streamlined, and the use of spheric glass gives her curves in all the right places.”

The Pearl 72 has what the builder describes as two master staterooms. One is forward with a private entrance, and the other is belowdecks, full-beam and amidships. Pearl Yachts calls this setup “an ideal solution for co-owners who enjoy the yacht together.”

Guests are accommodated in two additional en suite staterooms. There also are crew quarters and a garage that can hold a Williams Sportjet 345 tender and a personal watercraft.

Let’s talk about “indulgence”: That’s what Kelly Hoppen Interiors calls the theme of the Pearl 72s interior design, which aims to capture New York City urban living on the water.
