Step Inside the Black Pearl Yacht

Care for the environment is at the very heart of this game-changing superyacht's design.

Black Pearl Yacht With Sails

Standing at 350-ft, Black Pearl is the world’s largest sailing yacht and is estimated to have cost in excess of $200m. The unique vessel was garnering global attention long before her maiden voyage thanks to her revolutionary design, eco-credentials and technological advancements, all of which have set a new industry standard and seen her scoop up numerous awards for innovation. 

Delivered in 2018 by Dutch shipyard Oceanco, the three-mast yacht is said to be the realization of a radical vision “to build something that was out of the ordinary in every way,” according to the ship’s captain Chris Gartner.

This unmistakable vessel is not the product of one designer but in fact the result of an ambitious cross-industry collaboration between some of international yachting’s greatest creative minds. UK-based Ken Freivokh Design (responsible for the iconic Maltese Falcon ) and Italian studio Nuvolari Lenard (behind Steven Speilberg’s Seven Seas yacht) teamed up to create her striking exterior.

However, it is not just her aesthetics that sets her apart, but also her utilization of the very latest green technology, which according to Oceanco, has rendered her capable of crossing the Atlantic without using any fuel. “How?” one might ask. 

Let’s start with her three imposing 230-ft DynaRig carbon masts designed by Dykstra Naval Architects. The innovative structure sees her sails subdivided into smaller sections that can be set or furled at the touch of a button.

How to Design an Amazing Superyacht Interior

“The key to the DynaRig’s effectiveness is just how easy it makes sailing Black Pearl rather than relying on propulsion from fossil fuels,” says Gartner. “With a single person able to set 2,900-meters-sq (31, 215-sq-ft) of sail area in just under seven minutes, we can quickly and simply turn off the main engines and harness the power of the wind, which costs nothing and is better for the environment.”

In fact, under sail, the yacht can reach an incredible 30 knots and regenerate enough energy to power the boat’s full house load, removing the need to run generators.

Black Pearl is also powered by an advanced hybrid propulsion system that Oceanco designed in collaboration with specialist consultancy BMT Nigel Gee. Gartner explains how the complex system generates electricity through the vessel’s spinning propellers: “Her hybrid propulsion installation has two shaft lines, each with a controllable pitch propeller.

In normal sailing mode, the propellers are set to minimize drag and prevent the shafts from turning. But when we want to harvest some of that kinetic energy to be stored and used onboard, the pitch of the propellers is altered to create a lifting force as the water passes over them. This rotates the shafts, which are connected to a permanent magnet electric propulsion motor, effectively converting the wind energy that is moving Black Pearl through the water into electrical energy.”

Her interiors – which remain a closely guarded secret – were also designed by Nuvolari Lenard and French architect Gerard Villate. Other than that, what we do know is that she has six cabins providing accommodation for up to 12 guests, including a master suite and two VIP cabins. Black Pearl’s total interior volume is a roomy 2,700 GT, significantly overshadowing the world’s second-largest sailing yacht the EOS at 1,500 GT. 

No actual pictures of the inside of the vessel have ever been released but according to Nuvolari Lenard, the interior is a celebration of Louis XVI French design (think elaborate neoclassical touches like wood carvings, gold accents and sumptuous fabrics) as well as some art deco touches.

The Italian design studio has also shared a handful of interior renderings to give us a hint of what may lie inside the Black Pearl yacht. These include an elaborately decorated dining room that can seat up to 16 guests. We would expect to see this same level of grandeur throughout her accommodation.

Black Pearl is said to have a wealth of recreational spaces spread across her three decks, though due to her secretive nature, little information has been published as to what delights she offers her passengers. Aerial photographs reveal a pool aft of the main deck as well as a hot tub aft of the upper deck. There is also a fold-down platform at the aft of the yacht which is likely to transform into a full-beam beach club. 

Ken Freivokh Design features a mysterious unnamed 328-ft-plus DynaRig yacht on its website which some may speculate could give us an insight into the luxury facilities on board the vessel. The unidentified yacht includes a substantial toy and tender garage housing two limousine tenders, a hydroplane and a range of utility tenders and jet skis.

It is also said to feature a helipad and an extending forward deck that can be used for entertaining guests as well as spotting dolphins. If that wasn’t enough, other out-of-this-world amenities include a glass-fronted swimming pool and an aquarium. Could Black Pearl host similar facilities? It’s anyone’s guess.

Oceanco delivers the 106.7m Black Pearl the largest dynarig sailing yacht in the world

black pearl eco yacht

The 106.7m (350ft) three-masted sailing yacht Black Pearl is unlike any yacht the world has ever seen. This unique and complex vessel is the realization of a discerning Owner’s vision. She is the result of an elaborate and successful collaboration on the part of an international group of designers, engineers, naval architects, builders, and project managers.

The designers Ken Freivokh Design, Nuvolari Lenard and Villate Design all played a significant role in Black Pearl ’s design evolution. Dykstra Naval Architects designed Black Pearl ’s three 70 meter (230ft) DynaRig carbon masts and sailing system. The sail area is subdivided into smaller lesser-loaded sails and they can be set or furled by pushing a button. Astonishingly, all 2,900 square meter of sails can be set in 7 minutes.

BMT, Nigel Gee collaborated with Oceanco to create Black Pearl ’s hybrid propulsion system as well as other onboard systems such as waste heat recovery.

Since her launch, Black Pearl has proven to be a new generation landmark sailing yacht with a unique identity. Not only is she the largest sailing yacht in the world, but her unique features such as the state of the art DynaRig system, single level engine room, a hybrid propulsion installation and regeneration mode when under sail – she is set to turn heads the world over – and for decades to come.

Standing at 350ft,  Black Pearl  is the world’s largest sailing yacht and is estimated to have cost in excess of $200 million. The unique vessel was garnering global attention long before her maiden voyage thanks to her revolutionary design, eco-credentials and technological advancements, all of which have set a new industry standard and seen her scoop-up numerous awards for innovation. 

Delivered in 2018 by Dutch shipyard Oceanco, the three-mast yacht is said to be the realization of a radical vision by her owner who wanted “to build something that was out of the ordinary in every way,” according to the ship’s captain Chris Gartner. Who is  Black Pearl’s  owner? This, along with much of her interior details, has never been officially released, all adding to  Black Pearl’s  mystique. That being said, she is widely believed to belong to the Russian businessman, Oleg Burlakov.

This unmistakable vessel is not the product of one designer but in fact the result of an ambitious cross-industry collaboration between some of international yachting’s greatest creative minds. UK-based Ken Freivokh Design (responsible for the iconic  Maltese Falcon ) and Italian studio Nuvolari Lenard (behind Steven Speilberg’s  Seven Seas  yacht) teamed up to create her striking exterior.

A true sailing vessel, the  Black Pearl  yacht is built for adventure and her lower carbon footprint means her voyages are much kinder to the planet than those of a typical motor yacht of similar stature. 

Despite her transatlantic credentials she appears to spend most of her time cruising around Europe with regular sightings in Gibraltar as well as stopovers on the Isle of Portland on England’s south coast, the Spanish ports of Cadiz and Tarragona, the Russian city of St.Petersburg and of course Monaco where her owner is said to reside.

Looking for a fuel-efficient escape across the Atlantic? The Black Pearl might be the yacht to book for your travels.

Not to be confused by Jack Sparrow’s beauty of the sea on Pirates of the Caribbean , a real-life giant sailboat also named Black Pearl hit the waters, and I had to dive in to find out more.

According to Wikipedia, the Black Pearl is 106.70 meters (350.0 ft) from head to toe. Unlike its name-sharing fictional ship, she’s built by steel hull and aluminum and was made to with energy conservation in mind.

largest eco-friendly yacht

So what makes this yacht so efficient?

I’ve been trying to save the planet in one way or another these days; recycling target clothing tags and Starbucks cups any chance I can get, and did you hear about those reusable straws?! But oh boy, traveling AND saving the fishies sounds like a trip I can’t wait to take!

The Black Pearl can supposedly cross the Atlantic using only 20 liters (5.3 US gallons) of fuel. Here’s how:

  • Black Pearl can regenerate electricity through the under sail by the propellers– acting as a turbine the wind pushes the yacht across the ocean.
  • Heat capturing storage units placed strategically on the yacht conserve energy that’s generated and stores it for when it needs to be used – not wasting a spec of energy.

largest eco-friendly yacht

The history behind this beauty

Black Pearl was inspired by the Maltese Falcon, one of the world’s largest sailing yachts, which Black Pearl amazingly surpasses by 18.7 meters! Creating the style and design aspects of the yacht, Ken Freivokh worked with Dykstra Naval Architects and many others who shared their ideas and expertise on board the project to create a fuel-efficient yacht unlike any other.

Both Black Pearl and its inspiration, Maltese Falcon, were created using the DynaRig System, which involves freestanding, rotating masts that are in a square-rigged form. This concept is made to create a way for no gaps no matter what the sail plan. Black Pearl incorporates three 70-meter Dynarig carbon masts and has 2,900 square meters of sails, making her wind power unlike any other!

Black Pearl’s specifications:

Length- 106.7 meters

Interior volume- 2700 t

Guest capacity- 12 people (there are 6 cabins within)

Sail area- 2,900 meters^2

Max sail speed- 30 knots

Black Pearl took 8 years from contract to delivery and I can’t help but wonder how much quicker she would have been finished if only Oceanco and Freivokh had our 3D CAD … ?

Captain Chris Gartner, from S/Y Black Pearl, Creating A Greener Yachting

by ISS | Oct 19, 2020 | Industry News | 0 comments

Alternate text

The 106.7-meter S/Y Black Pearl built by Oceanco is a true eco-conscious yacht for the 21st century

Captain Chris Gartner and his crew aboard Black Pearl took the time to answer the questionnaire put forth by the International Superyacht Society regarding strides to create greener yachting

What was taken into account upon design and build to make the boat as eco-friendly as possible?

• We use the Dyna rig for sailing

• Heat recovery from our generators and PT main engine to warm our ship, swimming pool and potable hot water

• The design of the hull to allow us to move economically through the water

• Regeneration abilities while sailing

• Large lithium ion battery bank to run ship

• Sewage treatment system where we do not discharge anything but fresh water and accumulated sludge outside of 12NM

• Energy management systems that regulates our power consumption under different modes; guest onboard, only crew alongside or guest or crew on a passage.

• Aircon system designed so that areas not in use are regulated to reduce the HVAC power consumption and this is even more prevalent when using the different ‘Eco modes’ that are preset into our control system

• Higher grades of insulation to keep interior temperatures lower cutting down on the HVAC requirements

• Better UV windows do to keep interior temperatures lower cutting HVAC requirements

• Hot air from Captain’s cabin used to heat local city.

• Different modes of propulsion, sailing, Diesel Electric, battery and diesel or the combination of the above.

What is environmentally friendly in the running of the boat daily (water maker, use of eco-friendly products…)?

• We use as many eco-friendly cleaning products as possible onboard – the latest addition that we are trialing are laundry detergent eggs – one egg lasts for 70 washes therefore cutting down on the amount of plastic detergent bottles used.

• All housekeeping products were environmentally sourced without containing harmful chemicals.

• We use bagless vacuum cleaners

• A lot of our toiletries onboard are eco-friendly for example bamboo toothbrushes instead of plastic and we buy items such as shampoo and hand soap in large recycled 5-liter containers which we decant, this in turn offers a more sustainable, plastic reducing alternative and can save up to a years’ worth of plastic bottles from landfill.

• We have a water making system on board for drinking water which stops the use of single use plastic water bottles.

• We have cut down on the number of single use plastic onboard for example we now use bamboo or glass straws, re-usable silicone zip lock bags and reusable shopping bags.

• We have a garbage separation system – all garbage is separated before it leaves the yacht and disposed of accordingly.

• Food cooked during the week is repurposed as self-service weekend food, as we all know food waste in a landfill is not environmentally friendly.

• We send HP printer cartridges off for recycling with the HP recycling program free of charge.

• In the galley we use recycled paper towel.

• In the galley instead of using single use plastics or poor-quality plastics we use Tupperware that will last a considerable amount of time it is recycled once determined unusable anymore or passed onto another department for storage.

• We use glass jars in the galley for storage of spices, Jams and preserves instead of plastic we also purchase items like yoghurt, Mayonnaise, sauces in glass jars.

• Where possible in the galley we use eco-friendly or biological products such as; Milk, Yoghurt, Eggs, Meat, Fish and most fruit and vegetables.

• We recycle all glass jars and bottles; we use them for table decorations for the guests and use them for events such a sweet bowls for Christmas. • Make our own anti-wrinkle spray in the laundry.

• Make a lot of our own cleaning products avoid unnecessary ingredients.

Do you have a policy about single-use plastic onboard?

• Use as little of it as possible which his very difficult to do

• Plastic bags are re-used and we are phasing them out by using plastic containers or re-usable silicon bags

• We all have water bottles and we never buy water in plastic bottles, totally forbidden.

• Chefs try to buy bulk items such as blocks of cheese and slice it up and then bag it instead of buying sliced cheese in plastic boxes • It’s hard to rule out plastic completely but in the galley, we mostly rule out single use plastic to do this we buy at wholesale and break products down accordingly.

• Interior opt to buy eco items wherever possible and try to re-use all plastic containers. We do not allow plastic bags on board, only bags for life.

Do you feel that, generally speaking, owners as well as guests feel concerned about avoiding single use plastic during a cruise?

Yes, everyone wants to do more but it is very difficult as the recycling of plastic is such a farce.

Do you drink the water made onboard?

Of course, we do. We test our water all the time and to make sure that there are no problems and we have many different types of filters to make sure the water is safe to drink. We also have hot, warm, cold, carbonated, lightly carbonated and plain water for crew to drink in the crew pantry.

As an experienced captain, what do you think would bring awareness to owners and guests about not buying plastic bottled water?

• Lead by example about not using single use plastics.

• Suggest to people not to have bottled water that comes in plastic bottles.

•  Give the guests water bottles as an arrival gift so they can use these during their holidays.

Second largest sailing yacht in the world 107m BLACK PEARL joins the charter fleet

By Nina Done   13 January 2023

It has just been announced that the iconic 107m (350ft) sailing yacht BLACK PEARL is ready to welcome her first charter guests on board from the A-lister-approved superyacht hub of St Barts . Now you too can be among the first to experience the ground-breaking yacht for yourselves on a Caribbean yacht charter  this winter.

Delivered in 2018 by the renowned Dutch yard Oceanco , the award-winning tri-deck  sailing yacht has been hailed as an innovative triumph, with its iconic DynaRig sailing system, high-tech design and wave-piercing bow, and has been turning heads ever since.

BLACK PEARL is one of the largest and most ecological sailing yachts in the world, capable of crossing the entire Atlantic burning just 20 liters of fuel thanks in part to her DynaRig sailing system and an innovative propulsion system that harvests kinetic energy under sail.

Charter sailing yacht BLACK PEARL

Her striking exteriors are from the boards of the illustrious Nuvolari Lenard and Ken Freivokh, while her naval architecture comes courtesy of Dyksra Architects, who previously worked on the renowned sailing yacht MALTESE FALCON , from which she drew her inspiration.

Charter sailing yacht BLACK PEARL

Her interiors, penned by Valentina Zannier and architect Gerard Villate, have long been kept under wraps, but now they have been revealed to showcase a luxurious palette with design cues from the neoclassic Louis XIV period, characterized by elegance and refinement, with touches of gilded opulence throughout. So, as sleek and slightly menacing as she may seem from the outside, she is the very essence of sumptuous luxury on the inside.

Sailing yacht BLACK PEARL provides accommodation for up to 12 charter guests across 5 beautifully-appointed suites.

Salon on board charter sailing yacht BLACK PEARL

On board highlights include vast alfresco deck spaces replete with an array of sun loungers, a Jacuzzi and bar for the perfect daytime hangout while on charter, as well as a 4,000-bottle wine cellar and tasting room, and a beach club featuring ceiling lights mimicking the night sky constellations for an added ethereal touch. She also boasts a wealth of convivial social and dining areas for her guests to enjoy while on board.
