Powerful and spectacular, the uniquely electrifying cruising experience offered by Pershing continues to captivate enthusiasts with an amazing blend of design and technology.
Last July saw the delivery of the second Pershing 140 unit, the brand’s first all-aluminium flagship and a milestone that ushers in a new era for yacht construction.
A product of collaboration between naval architect Fulvio De Simoni, the Ferretti Group Product Strategy Committee led by Piero Ferrari and the Group’s Engineering Department, Pershing 140 is the brand’s first model built at Ferretti’s Ancona Super Yacht Yard, which specialises in the construction of steel and aluminium super and mega yachts over 40 meters in length.
The design of the exteriors, laid out over two decks and a spacious sun deck, confirms the sleek lines that are emblematic of the brand’s sporty and competitive character, combining design innovations with some of the brand’s most iconic details, such as the two lateral wings integrated into the superstructure and then connected at the start of the walkways to the gunwale. Other standout features include the raised cockpit with direct access to the sun deck, the private owner’s area on the main deck, and a beach area that can be extended by opening the three fold-out sides.
Unlike the first unit, which was fitted out at the owner’s request with an entertainment room, this unit has a full-beam private master suite with double bed, entered through the owner’s studio and small lounge. The layout is completed by a roomy walk-in wardrobe and a big bathroom. The interior design can be fully customised with the support of the designers at Studio Fulvio De Simoni and the Project Architects on hand at the Ferretti Group Super Yacht Yard. The yacht also features the finest materials and furniture produced by top luxury designers, including longtime Pershing partner Poltrona Frau, Minotti, Artemide, Roche Bobois, Molteni and Fontana Arte.
The second Pershing 140 unit will be on show at the Ferretti Group Private Preview, the exclusive annual event held at the Monaco Yacht Club from September 3 to 6 this year, where a group of selected guests and customers will have the chance to admire firsthand an engineering masterpiece that is arousing growing interest among owners around the world. Underscoring the model’s success, the third unit is now under construction at the Ancona Super Yacht Yard and will be launched next year.
