Pearl 95 shortlisted for two international “Best of” Awards

Pearl Yachts is delighted to have been nominated for two further awards by Boat International and Motor Boat & Yachting, two of the industry’s most authoritative publications. The British brand’s award-winning flagship Pearl 95 is on the short list for two further accolades, “Best Naval Architecture – Semi Displacement or Planing Motor Yachts” and “Custom Yachts” at the 2023 World Superyacht Awards and Motor Boat Awards, respectively.

British luxury motor yacht builder Pearl Yachts made the short list for the World Superyacht Awards and the Motor Boat Awards with the Pearl 95. Yachts are judged solely on their merit by the distinguished editorial teams at Boat International and Motor Boat & The Motor Boat Awards winners and runners up will be announced soon in January, while the World Superyacht Awards wait until May to announce their final results.

Smart at Scale

The flagship Pearl 95, just under 30 metres, boasts 5 guest ensuite cabins including a full beam owner’s cabin on the main deck, as well as an expansive beach club with fold-down buttresses. She has proven to be an award-winning combination of performance, style and quality, having previously taken the title of “Best Layout” at the World Yachts Trophies. The Pearl 95 went on to receive further recognition with the awards of “Best Interior Design – Power & Motor Yachts” and “Best Main Saloon” at the International Yacht and Aviation Awards.

Unified Design Achieves Beauty and Performance

The exterior design and naval architecture of the Pearl 95, like all Pearl Yachts, is the work of Dixon Yacht Design, an established and respected icon in the industry. Bill Dixon, the Chief Architect, modelled a fast yet efficient hull for the Pearl 95, with support from the most powerful traditional and digital tools. Lifestyle features and sophisticated interiors are little comfort without a solid foundation, so the design office pours attention into perfecting each Pearl’s seakeeping and handling to achieve a superior onboard experience for guests.

Managing Director of Pearl Yachts Iain Smallridge commented, “Award announcements are always exciting for Pearl. As a boutique yacht builder specialising in flybridges, every model we make has to offer something unique in the segment to stand out. Fortunately for us, the judges are just as appreciative of our design ethos as our customers. The double nomination of the Pearl 95 is a welcome confirmation of our brand’s direction, coming just between the premiere of the new Pearl 72 at FLIBS and the upcoming Pearl 82 project announcement at boot Dusseldorf.”
