LA PERLA is a refined solid steel blue water motorsailor that sails. The interior is inspired by classic motor yacht volumes and views. The Master cabin has dominant transom windows, great old world ambiance, very sexy. Outdoor living space includes a substancial flying bridge with all weather enclosable aft deck cockpit. There is excellent water access by built in stairway to the sea and a dock for your dingy. The bow sprit and newly refinished decks are generously proportioned. Dutch Jongert pedigree is evident through out LA PERLA. She sleeps seven in the owner's party in three double staterooms plus four crew in two twin cabin staterooms. There is ample crew separation.
LA PERLA is boarded on either port or starboard side of the on-deck covered dining /cockpit area. The entrance to the main salon is on the port side of the covered cockpit and is down four steps. The salon is finished in the beautiful satin finished teak that Jongert is famous for. To port is a built-in stereo center with beautifully built-in storage drawers for china and cutlery. The starboard side of the main salon features an L-shaped couch measuring approximately 12 feet in total and there is a custom teak/hydraulic table that is a wonder to watch as it opens automatically and converts itself from a cocktail to dining table. An especially nice feature of the main salon on LA PERLA is that it is so bright and airy and that one can look out, while seated, through large windows both port and starboard. Additionally, there is a double set of windows to the aft cockpit and the long view forward through the raised pilothouse, contributes to an overall feeling of spaciousness and essentially 360 degree views from LA PERLA's salon.
The covered cockpit is large measuring approximately 10x12 feet and is suitable for dining eight comfortably. With the hard top above, this area provides protection from the sunlight and yet with her three-sided soft enclosure she can be fully enclosed or wide open for Caribbean breezes. This makes a great place to enjoy the outside for those who do not have their tan up to speed as yet.
Forward of the galley, up two steps, is a raised crew mess area and opposite to starboard are the two-crew staterooms. The forward stateroom features over and under sleeping with en suite head and shower, opening ports for fresh air and direct access to the fore deck. The second crew cabin is a captains cabin with a large double bed below and a single above to starboard. The Corian and teak head is quite large and features a separate tile step-down shower. There are two opening ports in this area as well as two large full-length hanging lockers.
Unlike most sailing yachts, the fore deck on LA PERLA provides the same amenities as many large powerboats. There is built-in seating facing forward and enough room on deck to make this a third area to take the sun.
Lastly, the final place on the outside to mention is the extended bowsprit. Not only does it provide the common sense answer to handle multiple anchors but is it a great place to walk out on under way and to look back at the vessel under sail.
The galley is forward of the main salon and down six steps. The galley can be completely enclosed from the rest of the boat and it is quite large. Measuring approximately 10x8 in floor space the chef finds it very easy to work in the galley and with built-in freezers and refrigerators and the large amount of counter space available, a good chef has no trouble in turning out gourmet meals.
