Black Pearl is a yacht made to be used. From the expansive saloon windows, to the aft superstructure designed to allow guests to cast for fish, the yacht has been created to emphasise a sense of connection with the sea, usability and, most of all, enjoyment for all who step onboard. This is not a yacht which has been designed to sit at the dock and look pretty – though custom exterior paint created to match the exact colour and lustre of a Tahitian pearl ensures she does just that – Black Pearl is a vessel made to go places, see things and above all, bring joy to her owners.
Black Pearl’s three decks are noticeable for the light which spills through each of them, and the sense of space the build team has been able to create within the parameters of each deck. Naval architects LOMOcean designed the yacht to be a modern classic with a clean, less-is-more approach which gave plenty of scope to make the most of the liveable spaces onboard.
On her main deck, Black Pearl’s extensive saloon stretches full beam, with a spacious aft deck seating area leading into it, while a well-appointed galley is positioned behind it. Forward of the galley lies the bridge with custom windows designed by Glasshape able to withstand a 12-metre wave, or 16t of pressure. Those large windows in the bridge overlook the sunny seating area on the forward deck, replete with plenty of space to lounge; the perfect spot to settle in with a good book and watch the world pass by. On her upper deck there’s ample space for a tender and two jet skis as well as a crane, while forward of that deck, an enclosed flybridge with a wealth of seating has proved a popular place for guests to breakfast, or to gather and talk over the day’s adventures. Black Pearl’s lower deck is reached by a stairwell with sculptural handrails leading guests down to the staterooms. A four berth stateroom sits forward, in a clever use of space which makes this yacht an inviting family or group space. Two VIP staterooms lie amidships, followed by the master cabin. A door provides access to the crew quarters, and from there, the engine room, and then tender garage completes the lower deck.
