Produced in collaboration with Fulvio De Simoni, the Ferretti Group Product Strategy Committee and the Group’s Engineering Department, the PERSHING 140 is also the first Pershing brand yacht manufactured at the Ferretti Group Superyacht Yard in Ancona. It will also be the first Pershing vessel to have a raised helm station leading directly to the sundeck and the first to have an area on the main deck dedicated to the owner.
Once completed, the 42.6m/140ft vessel will be comprised of three decks and have the sleek and sporty profile for which Pershing is known. Its most notable feature is a large beach club with fold down terraces, increasing the guest area beside the water on all three sides.
The lower deck layout hosts four guest cabins consisting of two double cabins and two twin cabins, all of which have plenty of storage space and an en-suite bathroom. The crew accommodation offers three bunk cabins all with a private bathroom, plus a galley and direct access to the engine room and tender garage.
The main deck provides a spacious lounge in the aft and a full-beam master suite forward, with a galley amidships opposite the main foyer. In the layout of the first PERSHING 140 motor yacht, the Owner has opted to remove the Master suite and instead use the space as a media room.
The upper deck aft – also known as the sundeck – is designed for alfresco dining and relaxing under the stars as well as in the sunshine, offering as it does a central area protected by an aluminium hardtop, a bar and grill, a sunbed and a projector and screen (both of which can be removed) and loudspeakers.
The foredeck is wonderfully equipped for a day relaxing out in the sunshine and comes furnished with a sunbed, a sofa and small alfresco dining table, and a Jacuzzi. A sliding platform covers the area while cruising, protecting the area from less clement weather conditions as she cruises off to sunny isles.
Quadruple 16V 2000 M96L engines each producing 2,600 HP create a cruising speed of 35 knots and the target maximum speed of 38 knots.
