August 2012 – In less than two weeks from the launching of hull number 2 of Pershing 108', the flagship of the fleet and the first three-engine model manufactured by Pershing, the Mondolfo shipyard, historical seat of the brand, will be enhancing its fleet with another prestigious yacht.
In fact, on 13th August, the launching of the first Pershing 82' hull, the new model of Pershing fleet, a brand of the Group which is amongst the leading world manufacturers of high performance open motor yachts from 15 to 35 metres, will be held at Marina dei Cesari in Fano.
With its 82 feet of cutting-edge design, this model, which is the contemporary restyling of Pershing 80’, will be the protagonist for the brand at the Cannes and Genoa boat shows, exceptional showcases where this model will be premiered.
23.99 metres long and 5.50 metres wide, this new boat is once again a creation of the yacht designer Fulvio De Simoni, in collaboration with AYT (Advanced Yacht Technology – the naval research and design center of the Ferretti Group) and the team of architects and designers of the Centro Stile Ferrettigroup.
Designed to enhance the pleasure of yachting and to ensure maximum performance at sea, Pershing 82’ has two powerful MTU 16 V M93 of 2435 mhp (1792 kW) with Searex SR140S propulsion system together with Rolla surface piercing propellers, capable of reaching a top speed of 45 knots and a cruising speed of 40 knots, with a range of 300 nautical miles. The propulsion system is run by AUTOTRIM, an exclusive functionality that opimizes the performance and the consumption of the boat at any speed and with any load, in a completely automatic manner.
Featuring a streamlined and aggressive external profile, Pershing 82’ immediately shows the strong sporting spirit that distinguishes it, given its elongated lines that permit the enlargement of the internal volumes, providing wide spaces which guests can enjoy, offering greater comfort and liveability.
The liveability of external spaces has increased with the sun deck, a distinctive feature of the latest Pershing models where, next to the retractable helm, at the bow, there are two comfortable lateral chaises longues next to the pilot's seat, in which a practical minibar has been placed.
The sun deck is easily accessible by means of an innovative carbon steel staircase, created by AYT in close collaboration with Besenzoni, which drops automatically into the cockpit by electro-hydraulic control and automatically disappears upwards when closed, freeing the space in the cockpit. For further comfort, at the stern there is a sun bed area with separate backs that can be electrically lower.
On the main-deck, the large cockpit and the main saloon, divided by an electro-hydraulically controlled retractable door, offer maximum comfort.
Customizable to the Owner's needs, Pershing 82’ has a standard layout with 4 guest cabins: the master suite amidships, a VIP cabin forward and two cabins with twin beds at the bow of the master suite. It has 3 bathrooms: an en suite in the master suite and in the VIP cabin, and a guest bathroom that can be used as a restroom during the day. Additionally, there are two crew cabins (one for the captain and one for the sailors) which can be reached through the saloon, with laundry room and bathroom. The optional layout has 3 guest cabins with a lounge cinema room starboard.
Nada Serafini, Brand Manager of Pershing, expresses her satisfaction by saying: “By launching Pershing 82’, the brand confirms its commitment to yacht designing meeting the market demands without betraying the Pershing spirit: yachts with big volumes that combine sportsmanship, performance and style. In addition, this new launching highlights once again the strategic importance of the brand for the nautical pole of Fano”.
Outstanding performance, comfort and design: these are the keywords that make Pershing 82’ an ideal yacht with which to experience life at sea and which meets the requests of the most demanding ship owners.
