One year after announcing the Pershing 140 superyacht at the 2015 Monaco Yacht Show, Ferretti Group sold its first example at this year’s show. Sporty and powerful lines, outstanding performance, innovative on-board features – Pershing 140 won the heart of a yacht owner. Pershing 140 represents the latest Pershing vessel, measuring 42,53-metres designed by Fulvio De Simoni, the founder of Italprojects, who have designed all Pershing models since 1985. This innovative and elegant flagship yacht is the largest and most charming Pershing ever, scheduled for launch in 2018.
She is the first Pershing built in alloy, featuring the already iconic design elements that make every Pershing a truly unique yacht. The most glaring example of this are to be found in the two side wings integrated in the superstructure and anchored to the gunwale at the beginning of the side decks. On the new 140-footer this stylistic feature – by now a unique element of the latest Pershing generation – effectively protects the cockpit private lounge on the sides.
On the Pershing 140 the upper deck blends perfectly into the overall profile of the yacht, with its central section containing the aerials and satellite systems, being protected by a hard top. This area is primarily a large panoramic terrace.
Moreover, Pershing 140 offers its guests another private area, protected by the waves, so that it can be comfortably used just after cruising.
After climbing the steps on the side decks above the deck house, at the height of the wide-body Owner’s suite, guests can relax on the large forward sun pad, beyond which is a large lounge concealed by a platform that can be opened up when the yacht is anchored or moored up. Also the furnishings in this private area can be entirely chosen by the Owner. A hot tub, sun pads, an outdoor dining table, and a bar and sitting area (shaded by a glass hardtop) round out the al fresco amenities.
Once in the water, it will express the vessel’s powerful character to the fullest. This craft is imposing and yet not too austere, with extremely sleek lines that reflect the brand’s sporty character.
