IN­TEL­LI­GENT DE­SIGN

Yachting - - EXPERIENCE -

Bill Dixon de­signed both the Pearl 80’s ex­te­rior and her hull. His com­pany, Dixon Yacht De­sign, is based on the Ham­ble River in Southamp­ton, Eng­land, near Pearl’s head­quar­ters. Dixon de­signs sail­ing and mo­to­ry­achts, and is per­haps best known for his mega-yachts, in­clud­ing the 148foot Hol­land Jacht­bouw Heureka, the 160-foot Royal Huis­man Antares and the John­son 105. Dixon also turns out smaller cus­tom and pro­duc­tion builds for com­pa­nies such as Sealine, Az­imut and Hy­las. He has an eye for clean de­sign and a knack for draw­ing re­li­able, sea­wor­thy hulls.
