Hakvoort Shipyard launched the luxury motoryacht PERLE BLEUE. Diana Yacht Design was responsible for the naval architecture brief and Donald Starkey designed the contemporary wood-paneled interior.
PERLE BLEUE is the second yacht built by Hakvoort for the same owner.
Recognizing that the vast majority of time onboard is spent outside, PERLE BLEUE has exceptionally large aft deck areas and a magnificent sun deck. The yacht also offers splendid accommodation for ten people in a full beam master stateroom and three guest suites.
French Moderne—a design period that ran parallel to Art Deco in America—was selected for the living spaces. In the main salon, deco-style furniture such as the armchairs and the aft port armoire support the theme. Much of the furniture was handcrafted in Italy.
What truly sets her deco tone is a series of murals anchoring the four corners of the main salon. The characters in the mural suggest a lively feeling, recalling the mood of the deco period and great stories like F. Scott Fitzgerald’s, “Tender Is the Night.”
Part of the inherent beauty of this luxury charter yacht is the consideration given to every natural material used on board. As opposed to a sensory overload of gilt, this yacht features lacquer or accessories, woods, stones, leather and metals in unique ways that surprise, but never overwhelm. A vivid example is in the main-deck powder room with a rare marble that runs two-thirds of the way up the walls and ends in a jagged break, where it is joined by a mirror that continues the rest of the way up the wall to the ceiling. The effect of the seam where stone meets mirror is reminiscent of a ridgeline. The space is finished with a hammered copper pedestal sink and a monochromatic wood checkerboard veneer on the door that matches the companionway.
While the living areas are French Moderne, the master stateroom is Indochine. The Zen-like suite is tempered by elements such as lacquered night tables and a geometric terraced divider that smoothly make the transition from deco to Asian. The bathroom, with its luxurious soaking tub and custom washbasins, is a tour de force of textured stones and finishes. The rain shower is floored in river rock.
Guest accommodations on the lower deck are in suites named after popular St. Barth’s spots—Eden Rock, François Plantation and Isle de France. The design in these cabins is colonial Caribbean, with some facets that seem very nautical.
All TV’s are Runco brand, considered the very top of the line. All televisions interface with a Kaleidescape entertainment system. 3,000 hours of music and 600 movies have been downloaded and are accessible remotely from any TV.
The Sun Deck was designed with a misting system to cool those coming in from the sun beds. Forward is a spa pool with waterfall. At night, a cracked-glass bar is uplit by LEDs, giving a green glow to the sprawling deck. Loose furniture includes several oversized rattan chairs and ottomans that beckon quality time with a good magazine and a cold drink.
Watertoys include a 16-foot, teak-decked Castoldi tender and a Sabre 38 sportfish boat in tow. For active charter guests, there are water skis, snorkel gear, and assorted towable toys. Health-conscious guests will appreciate the exercise equipment on the aft sundeck, including a treadmill with TV monitor and free weights.
NOTE: NO WAVERUNNERS OR JETSKIS CARRIED ABOARD.
