Black Pearl: Please, Don’t Call It a “Sailing Yacht”

A new video has been published on the 106.8 metre Oceanco sailing yacht Black Pearl.

Inspired by the 88-metre Maltese Falcon, Black Pearl started when Ken Freivokh was contracted by the owner on 2010 to handle design and styling on the project. Black Pearl was developed in collaboration with Dykstra Naval Architects, Ken Freivokh, Nuvolari Lenard, BMT Nigel Gee and Gerard P. Villate.

With an LOA of 106.8 metres, she is one of the world’s largest superyachts. Black Pearl is a tri-deck sailing yacht and was built from a steel hull and an aluminium superstructure. Accommodation for 12 guests is split across six cabins and her 15 metre beam allows for a total interior volume of 2,700GT.

For our team, it’s very difficult to call it a “Sailing Yacht”…
