Style, technology and design characterize the new hull of the brand
16th May 2013 – The tenth hull of Pershing 115′, flagship of the brand’s fleet, among the world’s leading manufacturers of high performance open motor yachts from 15 to 35 metres, was launched in the last few days at Marina dei Cesari, in Fano (Italy).
The new launch represents an important result for the historic seat of the brand, the Mondolfo shipyard: the maxi yacht of 35 metres, representing the brand at its best, is characterized by refinement and performance. As a mark of the tradition which has made Pershing 115’ a timeless model, hull number 10 is characterized by sinuous, but decisive external lines with extraordinary performance, thanks to the collaboration between the architect Fulvio De Simoni, AYTD – Advanced Yacht Technology & Design – and the team of engineers and designers of the Ferretti Group.
Among the technological innovations it is worth mentioning in particular the highly innovative on board entertainment and domotics system, which can manage the audio, video and lighting systems directly from connected Apple devices – such as the iPad and the iPhone – and also makes it possible to monitor the utilities and the systems on board.
Pershing 115’#10 is a unique yacht of its own kind and it is worth noting the innovative slide in the stern garage that facilitates launching manoeuvres and the storage of a tender and the new type of opening from the bow hangar, which is in line with the family feeling of the Pershing ships: characteristics that contribute to making this new 115’ a perfect balance between the traditional elements and some of the new innovations of the most recent models.
Pershing 115’#10 has a layout with four cabins (an Owner’s suite and three guest cabins), which can host a total of ten people, and three crew cabins with five beds. A distinctive feature of every Pershing 115’ is the personalisation that contributes to making the flagship of the fleet a unique product, varying from one model to another and which can be customized according to the Owner’s needs.
The peculiarity of this model is the elegance that distinguishes its interior design, characterized by the essence of a texture with grey tones, which combines well with the classic metallic outdoor areas and the hull, creating continuity among the various areas of the yacht. Distinctive are also the numerous Alcantara™ fittings, with sandy and ecru tones, present in the roof, wall and door finishes, which make Pershing 115#10 a vessel with an extremely contemporary style.
The boat is motorized by two MTU 3510 mhp engines combined with the applied thrust of two Kamewa hydro-jets.
Nada Serafini, Sales Manager EMEA of Pershing, expressed the enthusiasm of the brand and the Ferretti Group: “The launching of hull number 10 of the fleet flagship is for all of us a reason for great pride and it confirms the ability of the brand to make more and more unique and strongly avant-garde products. A boat that is tailor-made for the ship owner, the perfect expression of the values that distinguish the brand, namely, innovation, comfort, performance, design and class, with a spirit that is always oriented towards the future and the next challenge.”
