    Originally a steel built commercial vessel from 1976, La Perla, was converted from the hull up in 2011 in Croatia. Its strong and sturdy hull was designed for the rough seas of the North Sea and was therefore ideal for the existing owner, who wanted a robust commercial vessel and convert it into a luxury charter yacht, capable of accommodating up to 24 guests.

    The reconstruction project was a complete overhaul with a new superstructure, cabin arrangement, piping, generators and technical systems, while only the main engine remained. La Perla has the desired classic look with a recently reft interior, completed in 2020. With an incredibly versatile cabin arrangement, La Perla can comfortably accommodate up to 26 guests across 13 cabins, located on two of her four decks with eight cabins with balconies on the main deck alone. 

    La Perla’s canoe stern combines perfectly with her sleek lines and classic look further accentuated by an exterior refresh and new paint, completed in 2019/2020. Designed to be the best charter yacht on the market, La Perla offers her guests the best amenities. From the top sundeck which comes complete with a Jacuzzi, to the bathing platform at water level, along with the multiple sundecks and charming alfresco saloon on the aft deck.

    Notable features abound, with each cabin on the main deck having their own private balconies. With her unique style, rich history and classic look, La Perla is the perfect entertainer, capable of hosting large corporate events, weddings and quite simply large families seeking to get away from it all. She has cruise ship capabilities within a manageable size vessel. With her Croatian Charter license and economical consumption, La Perla is ideal for those wanting to get into the charter market in earnest.
