Things You Ought to Know About the Pershing Yachts

1. History of Pershing Yachts

  • The company was founded by the Italian Entrepreneurs Fausto Filippetti, Tilli Antonelli, and Giuliano Onori in 1981 with their first shipyard. The shipyard was named Cantiere Navale dell’Adriatico.
  • They later, in 1985, collaborated with designer Fulvio De Simone to produce their first luxury yacht model. It was the Pershing 45.
  • The Ferretti group in 1988 acquired the Pershing Yachts. Under their leadership, the company flourished and grew its working capacity and size.
  • Later in 2012, the Ferretti group itself was acquired by the Chinese group called Weichan Group. They bought a 75 percent share in the Ferretti group that did include Pershing.

2. About the Design and Specifications

  • The whole Pershing fleet has a hydraulic gangway designed and developed with the help of Besenzoni.
  • They use a special lamination system (vacuum infusion), to have a durable fiberglass deck, superstructure, and hull. This is a unique system that lets these yachts have great strength and premium quality. Also, this makes their yachts more eco-friendly.
  • You can find big monolithic curvatures that are highly innovative, around the windows and windscreen. This enables the yachts to have more of the natural light on board, making it more liveable.
  • Pershing has stairs made out of carbon fiber that allows great access to its sundeck. It was first installed and introduced in Pershing 74 and later in Pershing 82.
  • The hulls are more aggressive with streamlined shapes.
  • Pershing Yachts have blended both interior and exterior living, to offer luxurious yet functional stay. To achieve this, they have installed a glass door that separates the cockpit and lounge and a fold-away that connects the interiors and the exteriors. This can extend the small area and make it appear large. This is an innovative strategy to have the maximum optimization of space.
  • Each of its models has a custom touch that lets the yacht owners have what they want. They also have a partnership with Poltrona Frau who is an excellent interior designer and works with leather.
