PERSHING GTX116 – Innovative, disruptive, exciting

Shipyard: Pershing (Mondolfo – Italy)

The first yacht in the new GTX range, Pershing GTX116 is the perfect synthesis of elegance, volume and the unmistakable Pershing thrill. It confirms the sporty DNA of the brand, while exalting the concept of comfort, thanks to wide open spaces, areas designed to be in direct contact with the sea and absolute liveability guaranteed by the new five-cabin layout. With its sleek profile, it represents the emblem of the brand’s sporty character, accentuated by the application, in the bow section, of a stylistic feature: a reference to the imagery of luxury SUVs, a strong identification of the new Pershing GTX116 in SUY, sport utility yacht. Pershing GTX116, in this new range, is tinged with a new shade of grey with the deckhouse characterised by a special blue, while the large windows flood the interiors with natural light. A truly unique yacht characterised by a hull more than 35 metres long and 7.70 metres wide with no less than 150 square metres of external areas entirely connected to the sea that amplify liveability on board.

The new Riva 82′ Diva project defines an unprecedented perimeter for Riva’s flybridge range, joining the four current models of extraordinary success: Riva 90′ Argo, Riva 102′ Corsaro Super, Riva 110′ Dolcevita and Riva 130′ Bellissima. Riva 82′ Diva joins the fleet, setting new aesthetic and functional standards, not only for Riva’s flybridge range, but for the entire category to which it belongs. The new concept privileges the liveability of the external areas and proposes a new way of interpreting the internal ones. The flybridge, one of the flagships of the project, has been developed to accommodate three distinct areas: a central lounge complete with dinette and bar, a forward sunbathing area and a lounge area. Aft of the main deck, there is a spacious and innovative beach club of unprecedented dimensions for the category and with a large sundeck.

Once again, Wally anticipates market demands by producing a yacht that is ahead of its time, building on the innovative features that made the wallywhy200 so successful. The wallywhy150 is a versatile model thanks to its careful use of space, considerable living space and unmistakable personality.


The outdoor areas are the most impressive feature of the wallywhy150, with dimensions that are unmatched in this market segment, as demonstrated by the completely open upper deck.

On board one can choose to dine on the sundeck, relax on the large sunbathing area or in the shaded lounge: the outdoor spaces occupy almost the entire length of the boat.


The interior layout of the wallywhy150 features a master cabin forward of the main deck which, like an extraordinary ‘amphitheatre of the sea’, offers a 270-degree panoramic view thanks to the incredibly high bow.

The distinguishing feature of this yacht, which makes her attractive to a wide range of customers, is the simplicity and accessibility of the layout: the wallywhy150 is in fact a flexible platform, ideal for those who want a different kind of cruising experience from that of classic planing yachts.
