Yacht of the Month: Perle Bleue


Arguably the best purchase on the worldwide market today for a recent (circa) 40-metre custom Dutch-built boat, PERLE BLEUE is not only in top operational condition but comes with an unparalleled charter reputation and an Asking Price of just US$ 16,900,000.


“That is a very competitive price for a top quality vessel launched in 2007,” says her YPI broker, Matt Albert. “Considering the current US$/Euro exchange rate, for anyone interested in a motor yacht of this size and quality…now is the time to act.”

PERLE BLEUE is a 37.7m Hakvoort motor yacht built in Holland and launched in 2007, refitted in 2010. She was built for an extremely knowledgeable owner who has owned yachts for more than 30 years and who put a lot of time and effort into creating what he referred to as “the perfect sized” motor yacht.

Hakvoort are amongst the very best quality custom shipyards in the world and with the modern Terence Disdale design and well conceived layout, PERLE BLEUE easily stands out from the often more traditionally-styled custom Dutch yachts.

PERLE BLEUE is owned by an owner who is still operating, using and appreciating the yacht – a vital factor when contemplating buying a brokerage yacht.

“Some yachts have owners that pull back on operating costs in the lead up to the sale,” explains Matt, “resulting in the buyer having to eventually pay more to bring her back up to A1 standard post-purchase. This is not at all the case with PERLE BLEUE.

In December 2010 PERLE BLEUE had a brand new hull repaint and a pre-season technical refit of around US$ 350,000 prior to embarking upon her Caribbean charter season.

PERLE BLEUE is also a very successful charter yacht,” adds Matt. “That’s a very important factor for potential buyers – she offers the option of being able to generate some excellent yacht revenue.”

“What makes her an even more attractive offer,” concludes Matt, “is that currently there is an opportunity to secure her for somewhere close to half the value of a brand new replica yacht – this for a vessel that is only four years old. To build her as a new yacht today at a custom Dutch shipyard would cost somewhere in the region of EUR 20,000,000. Just another reason why PERLE BLEUE earns her place as this month’s YPI Brokerage 'Yacht of the Month.'”
