The yachts under the spotlight
Pershing 92’, created by the designer Fulvio De Simoni together with the fundamental support of the technical staff of Pershing and the close collaboration with Norberto Ferretti, the AYT (Advanced Yacht Technology) and the Centro Stile of the Ferretti Group, , creating more room especially in the hall and the stern cockpit on the main deck. This is a new racy and modern model, with maximum comfort on board, creating continuity between the interiors and the exteriors and incomparable living spaces. Pershing 92’ fits perfectly with the new design course inaugurated with the famous Pershing 72’, successfully followed by the last models, the Pershing 64’ and the Pershing 80’, characterised by a distinctive open personality, with ample volume and total luminosity for direct contact with the sea highlighting the “family feeling” concept that has guided the stylistic choice of the entire project. Pershing 92’ develops all the stylistic elements that distinguish the models of the fleet: the windows of the superstructure, the wide glass walls, the large retractable glass door which divides the cockpit from the salon as well as the inimitable performance of each Pershing yacht. The yacht, the owner’s suite and two guest cabins with two side by side beds at the bow, all with en-suite bathroom. The elegance of the furnishing is the result of the collaborative teamwork of two historic Made in Italy labels: Poltrona Frau, which has designed and realized the dashboard, all the seating and all the details of the internal furnishing, and Ernestomeda, which realized the gallery. Accessible from inside and outside, there is an area at the stern that has been equipped as a crew lodging. It is made up of two cabins with bathrooms, and they are linked to the kitchen. Pershing 92’ is motorized by 2 MTU diesel of 16 V with 2638 horse power with surface propellers Rolla and ARNESON transmission and reaches the maximum speed of 41 knots and 38 knots at cruising speed. The propulsion system is completed by the MASTERTRIM function, which optimizes the performance, the trim and the consumption of the craft according to the speed and the load in a completely automatic way. Its slimmer profile, larger volume and the study of space confirm the great care given to the project making Pershing 92’ a new point of reference which can bring about the revolution of the concept of on board living.
