Looking at the history of the 60-metre Sea Pearl, it is instantly apparent that she’s a superyacht with a first-class pedigree. To start with, this fully-custom Dutch yacht was built for a particularly knowledgeable and exacting client – none other than the owner of the Netherlands-based shipyard Oceanco himself.
Then there’s her exterior and interior styling. Imagined by renowned studio Winch Design, Sea Pearl, like most classic yachts designed by the renowned UK-based studio, has a trademark look of timeless elegance and sophistication. Her exterior design was intended to attract attention from the get-go, so much so that her commissioning owner ensured she was launched in time to take pride of place at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens.
Now listed for sale with Superyacht Partners, Sea Pearl is an appealing investment for anyone looking for a unique, fully custom, head-turning yacht in excellent condition. Since her launch in 2004, she’s been impeccably maintained and improved upon, with several multimillion euro refits taking place over the past few years. For example, in 2012, Sea Pearl revisited Oceanco for an extensive machinery overhaul and installation of a new entertainment system. Her current owner has spent well in excess of $20 million (£17million) to keep the 1,184 GT Sea Pearl a high-performing yacht in great condition.
Thanks to her twin CAT 3512 B DITA diesel engines, her performance includes a top speed of 16 knots and a range of 6,000nm. Sea Pearl is also privately registered under Lloyd’s Classification, was built to MCA and has been maintained to commercial standards. Some of her key features are her six well-appointed staterooms for up to 12 guests, including a master suite with a forward observation lounge and a full-beam VIP suite. On the upper aft deck, the touch-and-go helipad can also be used for an entertainment area when at anchor or in port. A fully-equipped modern gym, large spa pool and a grand piano in the main saloon are also included in her impressive list of amenities.
Sea Pearl is a rare find in today’s competitive market, and according to her broker, a world-class yacht in every respect.
