World's largest sailing yacht 'Black Pearl' delivered

World's largest sailing yacht 'Black Pearl' delivered

Nothing short of a sensational moment, the 107m/350ft sailing yacht ‘Black Pearl’- the world’s largest sailing yacht- was delivered from the Oceanco shipyard this weekend.

Following a highly secretive build process, the distinctive sailing yacht Black Pearl left the Dutch shipyard to greet her owner and break a world record in the process.

Indeed, as the 143m/469ft sailing yacht A is technically a motor sailer that depends on engine power, Black Pearl is technically the world’s largest sailing yacht.

Utilising the same advanced DynaRig technology as the iconic 88m/289ft sailing yacht ‘Maltese Falcon’, Black Pearl features three free standing masts which rotate in place for greater sail adjustment. Optimising the efficiency whilst lending her a uniquely cool look, the DynaRig arrangement is finely finished with black sails that promise to make her unmistakable.

Allowing the captain to set sail at the touch of a button, the sophisticated on board technology makes it much easier to operate the the carbon fiber masts. As each of the masts extends to around 70m in height, it is obviously a huge advantage to be able to harness their power in a more straightforward way.

Whilst her jet black hull and large sails steal the eye’s attention, there’s a lot going on behind the scenes of sailing yacht Black Pearl that is particularly noteworthy. Indeed, her hybrid propulsion systems are combined with a pioneering ‘waste-heat recovery’ technology that intelligently stores and uses all of the heat generated by the on board machinery.

Taking the prestigious title of “world’s largest sailing yacht”, the delivery of Oceanco sailing yacht Black Pearl is surely one of the most significant events of the year

Due to being a highly secretive superyacht, there are currently no published images of the interior of sailing yacht Black Pearl, though it has been confirmed that her spaces have been designed by Ken Freivokh, Nuvolari Lenard, and Villate Design- a powerhouse of many brilliant minds certain to have produced something remarkable.

As more information and images of sailing yacht Black Pearl become available, YachtCharterFleet will be sure to keep readers fully informed.
