Pershing 115 The Luxury Yacht
Pershing has recently debuted its first mega-yacht model the Pershing 115 which combines the elegant comfort of a luxury yacht with the sleek, sporty curves and speed of an open yacht.
Conceived by yacht designer Fulvio De Simoni and built by the Pesaro, Italy-based boatyard that is part of the Ferretti Group, the Pershing 115 is available in two versions. The first is fitted with twin MTU diesel engines totaling 7400 horsepower. Combined with two Kamewa Rolls-Royce water-jet drives, the yacht can reach a top speed of 43 knots. The second version boasts all of that plus a 5100-horsepower Textron Lycoming turbine that can produce a whopping 57-knot maximum speed.
With two sun decks complete with a retractable bimini top and an adjustable semi-circular sofa a roomy gadget-laden cockpit, a private study and media room, a full-beam master cabin suite, three guest cabins each with a private bathroom, three crew cabins, and a spacious galley, the 115-footer can entertain up to 22 people.
The yacht is valued at more than 12 million euros ($14.5 million) and was recently on display at European boat shows.
