Pershing to exhibit at the 2012 Cannes Boat Show

September 06, 2012

Written by zuzana

Pershing, brand of the Ferretti Group, one of the major international builders of high performance open motor yachts, varying from 15 to 35 metres, will once again attend the Festival de La Plaisance di Cannes with an amazing variety of its superyachts on display.

From 11th to 16th September all eyes will be for the novelties exhibited by the brand of the Marche Region, which has chosen the Cote d’Azur for the international premiere of its latest jewels: motor yacht Pershing 108’ New Edition and the new Pershing 82’ superyacht, designed, like the rest of the fleet, by yacht designer Fulvio De Simoni in collaboration with AYT (Advanced Yacht Technology – the naval research and design centre of the Ferretti Group) and the team of architects and designers of the Centro Stile Ferretti Group.

At the Cannes Boat Show there will be a customized version of the boat that has won over all the nautical enthusiasts with its three engines: the motor yacht Pershing 108’ New Edition is a 32.90 metres long mega-yacht that maximizes the concepts of personalization and versatility thanks to her layout that allows Owners and their guests to be the protagonists of the experience on board.

In fact Pershing 108’ New Edition yacht has various new details that distinguish her from all the competitors in the same category. The chosen internal layout has 4 guest cabins (a full beam master suite amidships, a large vip cabin forward and two guest cabins, one with twin beds and one with beds that can be used as single beds or a king size bed) and 3 crew cabins.

The windows of the lower hull are also an original idea, since they have been enlarged at the bottom end so as to capture more natural light. The fabrics used are also innovative. Superyacht Pershing 108’ custom is the first yacht on which a special version of Alcantara was used for the exterior: in fact, all the sun beds and the sofas of the cockpit and the sun-deck are covered with this exclusive material which is particularly resistant to water.

The interiors are also prestigious, bearing the best designer names of the Made in Italy: Poltrona Frau, Armani Casa, Ernestomeda, Antonio Lupi, Penta Light and Zanotta.

Versatility and elegance are the strengths of this model, without underestimating its high level of perfomance: luxury yacht Pershing 108’ New Edition has three MTU 16 V 2000 M94 L diesel engines of 2638 mhp (1939 kw) and, thanks to the three surface propellers, it reaches a top speed of more than 42 knots.

At Cannes, besides Pershing 108’ New Edition, Pershing 82′ superyacht will also be premiered. Contemporary reinterpretation of the Pershing 80’, this new vessel, 23.99 metres long and 5.50 wide, was design to enhance the pleasure of yachting and to ensure maximum performance at sea: driven by two powerful MTU 16 V 2000 M93 of 2435 mhp (1792 kW) with Searex SR140S of ZF propulsion system, together with Rolla surface piercing propellers, it is capable of reaching a top speed of more than 45 knots, with a range of 300 nautical miles. The propulsion system is run by AUTOTRIM, an exclusive functionality that optimizes the performance and the consumption of the boat at any speed and with any load, in a completely automatic manner.

As regards the external lines, what first strikes the eye in the new Pershing 82’ yacht is the elongated superstructure and the new sun-deck with an optional retractable helm station, a distinctive feature in the new Pershing, that makes it look extremely slender and also allows guests to further exploit the sun-deck. The sun-deck can once again be reached from the innovative carbon steel staircase which drops automatically into the cockpit by electro-hydraulic control and automatically disappears upwards when closed.

Below deck, where comfort and design reign, the internal layout of the first hull Pershing 82’ yacht has 4 guest cabins: the master suite amidships, a VIP cabin forward and 2 cabins with twin beds at the bow of the master suite. In addition, there are 2 crew cabins (one for the captain and one for the sailors) equipped with a laundry room and a bathroom. The long-standing relationship with Poltrona Frau, that designed the sofas of the living room, the pilot house and many other leather details, was renewed, as well as that with other prestigious brands for the furnishings, such as, Antonio Lupi for the basins and Cassina for the lamps.

Besides these novelties, another two models will be present on the catwalks: the luxury yacht Pershing 74’, a yacht with a strong personality whose distinctive features are its huge volumes and its sleek sporty line, and the elegant Pershing 92’ superyacht, a vessel with a sleek and streamlined profile that allows for the top comfort of on-board living.

Nada Serafini, Brand Manager of Pershing, comments: “The Cannes Boat Show is a major event for the nautical scene and for this reason Pershing has decided once again to be present with two absolute previews such as the Pershing 82’ and the Pershing 108’ New Edition. Again, this year we will present innovative aesthetic solutions that meet the Owners’ requests, with features that make the Pershing yachts unique in Italy and abroad: versatility, comfortable performance, sporting spirit and attention to design.”

La Pellegrina yacht – the largest Couach built yacht to date

September 05, 2012

Written by zuzana

To be presented by the leading French builder Couach Shipyard at the next Cannes Boat Show, the 50-metre motor yacht La Pellegrina is their largest luxury vessel constructed to date. The first 5000 Fly Couach superyacht La Pellegrina is the symbol of a new Couach dynamics and a Made in France savoir-faire.

The French « savoir-faire » is written inside the Couach brand DNA. As genetically programmed by the requirement of luxe, Couach affirms itself on the market by claiming its marine qualities that really make the difference.

Luxury yacht La Pellegrina is emblematic concerning her position on the market: a super yacht that gives the tuning to new ambitions, a brand firmly deep-rooted inside a performance, technology and creativity register.

On the technical hand, La Pellegrina superyacht involves technologies of exception: the hull and superstructures are entirely built with a material inspired to the kevlar® qualities with carbon reinforcements. The La Pellegrina’s hull is the biggest piece ever moulded using the specific one piece infusion process.

This hull is clearly more shock resistant than a classic aluminium or polyester hull. La Pellegrina yacht is more rigid, more solid, lighter and then faster and more autonomous. The Couach shipyard prevails as the international leader in the implementation of this technology with over 30 years of experience.

This professional ships expertise is therefore transposed to the Pleasure Yachts range which the conception responds to the restrictions imposed by the military sector about manufacturing process, liability, safety in the worst climatic conditions.

The V-shaped hull of the 50m superyacht La Pellegrina, a specificity of Couach, offers a perfect sea passage, and an unmatched sailing comfort. The excellent seaworthiness allows to maintain the boat’s speed without hitting waves or jolting the passengers. Less solicited, the engines gain significantly in consumption and acoustical comfort.

The Couach yachts are born to navigate fast, far and with all weather conditions. The mastery and the know-how of Couach in this domain make the yard one of the greatest composite building specialists in the world. To illustrate her qualities, La Pellegrina yacht is provided of last generation engines (2 x 5,300 hp) and mobilizes a record weight of only 296 tonnes for a unit of such a big size.

Launched at full speed, La Pellegrina superyacht can reach the record speed of 30kts, unlike any seen on a boat of this size. At a cruising speed of 25kts, La Pellegrina behaves with the same agility of a 20-metre yacht, even on rough seas.

On the environmental hand, quite naturally, the La Pellegrina yacht’s conception allows an exemplary energetic consumption. Thanks to her lightness and to her singular hull design, the yacht navigates with excellent conditions showing a minimal record consumption of 180 L/h at 12kts.

This economic cruising speed enables a complete transatlantic autonomy. Moreover, the yacht integrates the most performing equipments for the waste water treatment. This way, she can navigate in protected sailing zones very strict towards discharges.

La « Pellegrina », the incomparable pearl…
La Pellegrina is the name of a famous and magnificent round pearl of 27,5 carats. By the years and history, this pearl has been a covetousness object. Conserved today at the Moscow Museum, la Pellegrina is considered as an exceptional pearl regarding its purity of shape and its orient (iridescent effect).

It’s a combination of all kind of perfection: smooth, perfect sphericity, its silvery lustre make it appear almost transparent. They pretend that it should be identical to the «Reine des perles» (The Queen of Pearls) stolen in the past in the crown jewels of France, during the Bourbons reign.
