Hull Number 9 of the 35 metre MY Pershing 115’, the flagship of the Pershing fleet, a brand of the Ferretti Group which is among the main international producers of high performance open motor yachts of 15 to 35 metres, launched yesterday at Marina dei Cesari in Fano. A gas turbine and a high level of personalization are the feathers in the cap of the flagship of the Ferretti Group’s fleet produced in Mondolfo.
The official launching ceremony of Pershing 115’ carried out in the presence of the company management, the ship owner’s representative and the main local authorities.
Nada Serafini, Brand Manager of Pershing, welcomed the first sailing of the mega yacht with great enthusiasm: “This new Pershing 115’ is a unique product which is highly at the forefront: a vessel that has been tailor-made for the ship owner, a perfect expression of the brand’s distinctive values such as innovation, comfort, performance, design and class. The launching of hull number 9 testifies the growing success of this model which has contributed in making the Pershing Brand one of the most attractive on the International boating market”.
Pershing 115’ is a maxi yacht of 35 metres, representing an authentic stylistic evolution, characterized by tortuous but decisive external lines with extraordinary performance. Realized through the collaboration of the staff of Pershing and the Architect Fulvio De Simoni, the AYT (Advanced Yacht Technology) of the Ferretti Group, one of the most advanced research and design boating centres in the world, and the Centro Stile Ferrettigroup team of architects and designer, over the years Pershing 115’ has won good acknowledgments as it best embodied the style of the brand in terms of the richness of detail, the use of valuable materials and innovation in the external shape which creates new spaces below deck.
The flagship of the Pershing fleet boasts of four cabins (a ship owner suite and three guest cabins), which can host a total of 9 people, and three crew cabins with 5 beds. A distinctive feature of every Pershing 115’ is the personalisation that contributes in making the flagship of the fleet a unique product, varying from one model to another and which can be customized according to the ship owner’s needs. Particularly, the model under construction distinguishes itself for its shiny white pearl coloured hull, a distinctive feature of the new Pershing models, donating luminosity and Energy to the vessel profile. Inside, the main hall has been renovated up to the finest details but its characteristic layout with a banded coal French window at the stern, which separates the cockpit from the main hall, has been kept. The large cockpit itself, which is about 24 metres squared, is even more spacious and enjoyable, both during the day and in the evening, with its vast covered area made unique by its lateral carbon fittings and seating, a teak table for 10 people, a bar, a large solarium and, for the first time, a 32” in-built TV placed on the ceiling on the left. The upper sun deck, an independent and functional area where one can make the best out of moments of relaxation, is also equipped with an innovative dash board and a wide seating space in-built in a comfortable piece of furniture, with an in-built ice box and four chaise longue facing the stern.
Among these structural innovations, which required the specific support of the Pershing technical staff, it is worth mentioning the highly innovative entertainment and domotic system, which once again highlights the constant commitment of the brand to offer forefront products. In fact, this vessel is equipped with a centralized audio and visual system that can be managed by a “touch panel” with AMX technology and it can be integrated with the installation of a “Kaleidoscape” system which archives music and dvds like in a library. Moreover, the system actively controls, through the same touch panel, the Lutron light system, electrical curtains, air conditioning and a closed-circuit video camera system, which makes it possible to watch the onboard nautical maps and the bridge radar routes on the dash baord. Finally, on this vessel there is an onboard monitoring system for parameters such as the closure of the porthole and the external doors, the tension level of the batteries and the smoke detector.
Pershing 115’ motor yacht is powered by two diesel MTUs with the total of 7400 hp together with the applied thrust of the two Kamewa Rolls Royce water-jet propellers with a maximum velocity of about 38 knots. A unique characteristic of this mega yacht is the presence of a Vericor TF50 gas turbine, typically used in the aeronautical sector, capable of developing a power of over 5100 hp, with a central water-jet propeller propulsion. Its use requires specific accessories and mechanical parts and technologies that are integrated within the system which includes, for example, the titanium drain, the axis and the reducer. A big merit of this set up is its silence and the absence of vibrations up to the maximum velocity of 52 knots.
