Black Pearl – Carkeek 47

The Carkeek 47, Black Pearl, is one of the latest high performance yachts to come from Premier Composites in Dubai.  The Black Pearl Team were looking for a system that would be at the top level performance wise, but that would also be robust as their racing takes them all over the world. As a result, Diverse engineer Peter Knight, installed the highest level B&G H3000 Processor, incorporating the two axis rate giro for wind stabilisation.  Alongside this there is a full range of Diverse custom load-cells and string pots to measure sailing variables. On the electrical side the boat carries the latest Lithium-Ion battery solution resulting in a weight saving of over fifty percent compared to standard lead batteries!
