The shipyard of Mondolfo is thus ready to host the fundamental towing tank tests for the latest Pershing yacht, 24.97 metres in length, 5.50 in width and designed once again by the yacht designer Fulvio De Simoni in close collaboration with AYT (Advanced Yacht Technology – the Ferretti Group’s naval research and design centre) and the team of architects and designers at Centro Stile Ferrettigroup.
The superstructure of the new Pershing 82 yacht, which is already assembled and varnished with a special silver colour (like the hull), and the furnishings which are almost complete, display the strong sporty character of this model, immediately recognizable from its external profile which is more appealing than that of the Pershing 80’, its predecessor.
The profile of the sun-deck is also taking shape, which can easily be accessed from an automated hatch and a carbon steel staircase, created by AYT in close collaboration with Besenzoni. Once inserted, the staircase is decentralized and drops automatically into the cockpit by electro-hydraulic control and automatically disappears upwards when closed, freeing the space in the cockpit.
All the other stylistic features that have distinguished the Pershing models, contributing to its worldwide success, remain the same on the new motor yacht Pershing 82: the large windows on the walls, the large retractable door that divides the cockpit from the saloon with electro-hydraulic control and the special system of fiberglass vacuum molding.
The first hull of the new Pershing 82′ yacht has 4 comfortable guest cabins (the master suite amidships, a VIP cabin forward and two cabins with twin beds at the bow of the master suite) for the standard layout, and 2 guest cabins (one for the captain and one for the sailors) for the optional version, with laundry room and bathroom.
Below deck, space is typically divided for a mega yacht, for example the galley is separate from the saloon and it communicates with the crew area to allow greater privacy for the guests and the ship owner. The galley, which is L-shaped and is completely separate from the sleeping area, ensures comfort and a good quality of life on board.
The sleeping area is a model of comfort and design. In the master suite, amidships, we find the easily recognizable wide open-view windows, which marked the aesthetic course of the new Pershing range. The sinuous shape of the window permits a generous amount of light to enter throwing a pleasant play of light onto the Poltrona Frau leather furnishings.
The VIP cabin, at the bow, with an en-suite, features an elegant central bed and two big lateral wardrobes, while the two guest cabins have a more traditional setting with two twin beds. All the guest cabins aboard luxury yacht Pershing 82 have a carpet.
The below deck lighting system is also included. It consists of embedded LED lights, distributed along the ducts on the concealed molding, providing indirect lighting and guaranteeing a welcoming atmosphere.
Besides the innovative solutions designed for the external structure and for the design below deck, the new Pershing 82′ was developed to ensure maximum performance at sea: two powerful coupled MTU 16 V M93 of 2435 mhp (1792 kW) with Searex SR140S propulsion system together with Rolla surface piercing propellers that guarantee a maximum speed of 45 knots and a cruising speed of 40 knots and high levels of comfort, in addition to the autonomy of more than 300 nautical miles. The propulsion system is run by AUTOTRIM, an exclusive functionality that optimizes the performance and the consumption of the boat at any speed and with any load and is completely automatic.
Nada Serafini, Brand Manager of Pershing, states: “We are close to the launch of this new model, a boat which perfectly fits the new aesthetic course of the brand and which we believe can satisfy the demands of many ship owners who require excellent performance at sea together with the unmistakable Pershing design. The Pershing 82’ will be the jewel in the crown which will represent us at the Autumn boat shows”.
Total flexibility of space and innovative technology are the guidelines of our stylistic choices for this new boat in which the most prestigious brands are represented and which reaffirm the high sporty performances which are typical of every Pershing yacht.
