106m sailing yacht Black Pearl
The 106.7 metre Oceanco sailing yacht Black Pearl delivered in September 2016, sold by Moran Yacht and Ship. Under sail she can reach an impressive top speed around 30 Knots.
Black Pearl was developed in collaboration with an all-star cast of designers — Dykstra Naval Architects, Ken Freivokh, Nuvolari Lenard, BMT Nigel Gee and Gerard P. Villate all contributed their respective expertise.
With she's 106.7 metres is officially join in the ranks of the world's largest superyachts.
Black Pearl is a tri-deck sailing yacht and was built with steel hull and an aluminium superstructure. Accommodation for 12 guests is split across six cabins.
Auxiliary power comes from a pair of diesel engines for a top speed of 17.5 knots. However, thanks to her three 70-metre Dynarig carbon masts and 2,900 square metres of sails, it is when under wind power that Black Pearl truly comes in to her own.
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 need less waste from being created.
