59-metre superyacht Pearl lying in the port of Tarragona, Spain

Built as La Baronessa for a repeat client in 1998, the 59.4-metre Pearl was designed by Nuvolari Lenard as one of their largest projects at the time. The highly private yacht is currently spending the winter around Spain and was seen in the port of Tarragona last month. Built with an aluminium hull and superstructure, Pearl was refitted in 2007 and has been kept in immaculate condition by her crew since. Sparkman & Stephens developed the naval architecture of the vessel.
