This morning, the technical launching of the first Pershing 108’ hull took place successfully at the Marina dei Cesari of Fano. The latest creation of Pershing, a brand of the Ferretti Group, among the world’s leading manufacturers of high performance open motor yachts from 15 to 35 metres, will be presented to the public next spring. An important event that takes places just a month after the launching of hull number 9 of Pershing 115’, the fleet’s flagship.
The launching of the new prestigious maxi yacht, which with its highly innovative design and high performance candidates itself to become one of the models of reference in the International nautical world, testifies the continuing research of Pershing in terms of research and development.
“We are enthusiastic about the launching of Pershing 108’ – says Nada Serafini, Brand Manager of Pershing. – Only a few weeks after the launching of hull number 9 of Pershing 115’, we have successfully concluded the technical launching of the long-awaited new boat, destined to become the top model of the Pershing range, thanks to innovative engineering using three engines and the personalised interior design, which make this model an authentic setter of trends. Furthermore, the new launch highlights the vivacity of the brand and the strategic importance of the nautical pool at Fano.”
Designed by Fulvio De Simoni, in collaboration with the AYT (Advanced Yacht Technology) of the Ferretti Group and the team of architects and designers of the Centro Stile Ferrettigroup, the new boat is a leading yacht, with a versatile layout and an innovative technology on board.
The Pershing 108’, 32.90 m long, has 4 guest cabins and 3 crew cabins, offering customers a choice of three different internal layouts for the owner’s suite, to have more versatile and customized spaces. A boat that has cutting edge layout and on board technology, as well as motorization for the first time subdivided with the aim of ensuring high performance while paying attention to the environmental impact. The standard version of Pershing 108’ has three diesel 1940 KW MTU and, thanks to the three surface propellers, it reaches a maximum velocity of 40,5 knots. With a single central operating engine, it is possible to reach an extraordinary autonomous sailing speed of 11 knots per 1070 nautical miles, useful when the boat needs to go from one place to another, with lower consumption and safer night sailing.
This new yacht with a white pearl hull – an innovative colouring that characterizes all the models of the fleet – has kept the “family feeling” over the years, making it unique and recognizable among the other models of the Pershing fleet, and also its originality. The incredibly spacious upper sun deck is equipped with an innovative console, a large C-shaped sofa with a table which can be lowered to seat level, a bimini top, an ice box, a barbeque and a sink, making this an independent and functional area. A discrete space, which makes it easier to enjoy the moments of relaxation on board and which can be used at any time of day.
Every detail of Pershing 108’ has been designed to meet the various customers’ needs, facilitating the use of space, the livability and the privacy of life on board, as evidenced by the interesting solution which allows guests easy access to the bathroom from the cockpit.
There is, therefore, great expectation surrounding the Pershing 108’: even before its launch, the yacht has already been recognised as the “Best Production Motor Yacht” at the last Asia Boating Awards.
