The aluminium hull for the new Pershing 140 superyacht has been moved to the construction yard in Ancona. The facilities have been used by previous Ferretti Group luxury yachts ranging in size from 28m – 90m in materials ranging from aluminium and lightweight alloys to steel and fibreglass.
Architect Fulvio De Simoni worked in conjunction with the Ferretti Group Strategy Committee and its engineering department to create what will become Pershing’s flagship superyacht once completed.
The hull skeleton and superstructure is expected to be completed in September, when work will then focus on outfitting the engine room, technical systems and interiors. The Pershing 140 will be equipped with 4 x MTU M96L 16V 2000 engines capable of generating 2600 Mhp for an expected top speed of 38 knots with her trial load.
“We are proud to be opening a new chapter in the history of the marque,” Ferretti Group Chief Commercial Officer Stefano De Vivo commented.
“Pershing 140 is the epitome of over thirty years of state-of-the-art yacht building, always a wave ahead of everyone else in terms of innovative style and design, standard of comfort and sailing performance.
“The new flagship takes to even higher levels the brand’s sporting spirit and racing flair always so popular with Pershing yacht owners, who will love its powerful yet streamlined and aerodynamic profile as well as its fabulous spaces providing unparalleled comfort in a yacht of this size.”
