The 2015 edition of Monaco Yacht Show wrote a new page in the history of one of Italy’s most extraordinary yachting brands. It was not by chance that Pershing chose to present its new flagship in the world capital of mega yachts. This superyacht is indeed a gift to all enthusiasts on the occasion of Pershing’s 30th anniversary. The Pershing 140, the first to be built in light alloy, is expected to make its debut in 2018.
“Last July we showed the Owners that took part in Pershing’s 30th anniversary celebrations in Palma de Majorca the first renderings of the new yacht, and their reaction was exactly like mine is every time I look at the pictures of this new amazing flagship: a shudder of excitement. What we call ‘thrill’ within the Company that only Pershing is able to give” – comments Ferretti Group’s CEO Alberto Galassi.
“The reaction of the media during the press conference we held in Monaco was the same. This is why I can’t wait for this incredible vessel to be built: I want to see it growing month after month. I am sure the Pershing 140 will be the greatest ‘thrill’ ever in Pershing’s history.”
The new 140-footer (LOA: 42.53 m) is the result of the cooperation between and among Ferretti Group’s Product Strategy Committee, its Engineering Department, and architect Fulvio De Simoni. It will be the first Pershing yacht to be built at the Group’s Ancona boatyard, which specializes in the construction of steel and aluminium super and megayachts over 40 meters in length. With this new flagship, the brand is indeed stepping into a new design and construction era, combining its traditional strong drive towards innovation with the heritage of 30 years spent in the forefront.
