Black Pearl is the world's most advanced superyacht, offering true zero-emissions cruising, which is unheard of on a boat of her scope and size. The yacht's controllable pitch propellers feed power back into the ship via a pair of shaft generators, providing enough power to support the yacht's hotel load.
The owner's brief for the 106.7 metre sailing superyacht from Oceanco included building a "zero impact" yacht. As was revealed in the full feature in Boat International's June issue, the owner wanted to prove that it was possible to not be dependent on consuming natural resources.
Energy is saved at every turn, from the HVAC system to her advanced DynaRig sails that allow Black Pearl to take advantage of the eco-friendly natural resource of the wind. Black Pearl also will only have reusable water bottles on board to prevent needless waste from being created.
