Pershing 140, the collaborative effort between the Ferretti Group’s Product Strategy Committee, its Engineering Department and the architect Fulvio De Simoni, is showcased at the Monaco Yacht Show 2016. Exactly one year after its first official announcement, the Pershing’s new flagship yacht was sold, justifying the success of the growth and development strategies for Pershing, Riva and Custom Line in the Ferretti Group’s super yachts division. The launch of Pershing 140 is scheduled for 2018.
The 43.53 metre Pershing 140 is the first to be built in light alloy, attracted a yacht owner from continental Europe with her sporty, powerful lines and many innovative on-board features as well as outstanding performance at every level. The yacht’s features ultra-sleek lines are reminiscences of the exterior of coupe cars, underscoring the racing character always so popular with Pershing yacht owners. Besides, its profile is enriched by several design elements, some entirely new and others displaying a family feeling with the brand’s latest models.
Two side wings, integrated into the superstructure, make a sheltered private lounge on the aft deck and create a distinctive and easily-recognizable look of Pershing 140. The aft part of the main deck has been raised into a mezzanine level, creating more space for a huge water-level beach club with fold out sides. The beach club is connected up to the sundeck to create a multi-level outdoor space for the owner and their guests to enjoy.
Spacious enough to accommodate 10 guests, the yacht’s main deck includes a wide-body owner’s suite while four guest suites are located on the lower deck. Below decks the well laid out crew areas offer hidden access from the comfortable living quarters through the engine room to the garage.
The first Pershing 140 will be fitted with four MTU M94 engines, 2600 HP each, enabling a top speed of 38 knots (preliminary data). Two alternative configurations are also available, both equipped with MTU 4000 M93L engines, 12V (for 3460 HP) or 16V (for 4613 HP).
Thanks to the hydrojet drive, the new flagship will achieve top performances at cruising speeds, including at maximum speed, which can reach up to 24 knots with the 12V MTU, and up to 33 knots with the more powerful engines (preliminary data).
