Luxury motor yacht ‘Spirit du Brazil’ is the latest new Pershing 115’ superyacht. She is to leave Marina dei Cesari in Fano now for a long trip to her home port in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It will take the Pershing 115’ motor yacht about a week to cruise around Italy, after which she will be loaded onto a large transport ship which will cross the Atlantic Ocean to Brazil – where her lucky owner is eagerly waiting for her.

Tilli Antonelli, President and Founder of the Pershing S.p.A. shipyard: “South America is an extremely important market for us, and one in which we are achieving very good results. This is also due to the support of our dealers like, Spirit Yachts, who have been working with us for over 25 years,”

The standard version of Pershing 115’ is powered by twin MTU diesel engines totaling 7400hp. This combined with the applied thrust of two Kamewa Rolls Royce hydro-jets produces a top speed of around 40 knots.

The recently launched Spirit du Brazil, however, features a significant innovation which makes her stand out from many other luxury motor yachts. Spirit du Brazil has been empowered by a new generation Vericor TF50 gas turbine, which with a central hydro-jet thrustable is able to create a power of over 5100hp!

The result is an improvement in both performance and resistance to significant stress. More usual in aircraft design, this technology is rarely used on yachts due to its complexity and indeed the high cost of the individual components.

Another interesting advantage of this structure is that the superyacht is quieter to run and has no vibrations – even at a top speed of 52 knots.
