The Pershing thrill
The first boat Pershing produced in the 1980s was the 45' open and was everything its founders and designer Fulvio de Simoni had in mind: an excess of power in a luxurious package. Further innovations soon followed.
One of Pershing's most distinctive features is that most models are equipped with surface propellers. This allows the boats to reach unprecedented speeds for boats of this size and with this high level of comfort and space on board. This performance is delivered to you with some sense of drama; the distinctive grate tail. The boats react remarkably sensitively to the helm, giving speed lovers an active sailing experience. An additional advantage of these drives is that at the high cruising speeds, the boats are relatively economical which means that you have a greater range with less refueling.
Pershing is further a yacht builder that has a user-friendly indoor-outdoor operation. Think of the convenience of a salon that can easily be completely closed off, safe from the elements and unwanted visitors. Then, with simple actions, this salon can be opened up to merge seamlessly with the outdoor spaces. Consider lots of glass, large, electrically operated roofs and sliding doors.
Naturally, high-speed ships also have to be very safe, which is why the hull, deck and superstructure are manufactured using a unique vacuum-laminating system. This process, in combination with the hull design, results in a stable seaworthy hull that offers optimum safety even in heavy weather conditions. Other innovations are the curved, one-piece molded windows that provide a bright light and thus make even the smaller rooms feel more spacious.
Pershing Yachts has evolved into a fleet of 50-foot to superyachts. From the 5x to the 140, they all still meet the original brief to realize "The Pershing thrill" in design.
