Black Pearl has now cruised nearly 30,000 nm and crossed both Atlantic and Pacific oceans on her way back to New Zealand, where she’s just completed a refit which included hull repaint and a complete check-up and servicing of the entire engineering systems. She has proven to be a very seaworthy and reliable yacht, which a happy owner and crew can attest to.
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.
