Flagship Pearl 80 begins sea trials


Largest yacht to date built by British yard Pearl

The first Pearl 80 yacht has started sea trials off the coast of Miami.

The 24m vessel was launched earlier this year at Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show. It's the largest yacht built to date by Pearl Yachts.


Pearl 80 can accommodate eight guests in four double cabins, including a full-beam master suite. A separate cabin allows for a crew of two people.

On deck, the guests can choose between the foredeck seating area or the sundeck complete with wetbar, spa pool, sun beds and electric barbecue.


Power is provided by two MAN V12 diesel engines, each delivering 1,800 hp. Top speed is 35 knots. Cruising at 25 knots, Pearl 80 has an estimated range of 350 nautical miles.
