The brand new Pershing 140 flagship is the result of the collaboration between architect Fulvio De Simoni, the Ferretti Group Product Strategy Committee (led by engineer Piero Ferrari), and the Group’s Engineering Department.
The new 140-foot yacht is the first Pershing manufactured at the Ferretti Group Superyacht Yard in Ancona, and features three spacious decks.
The hull platform was specifically designed for high performance, featuring excellent hydrodynamic capabilities at high speeds and the propulsion of 4 MTU 16V2000 M96L engines, each of 2,600 HP, thus achieving the company’s target of taking the first 43.30-metre LOA Pershing superyacht to a top speed of 38 knots.
It is the brand’s first superyacht to boast a raised cockpit directly connected to the sun deck; the first to have an owner-dedicated area on the main deck and the first to maximise the enjoyability of all the decks and outdoor areas. This was made possible by joining them all into a beach club area, which becomes expandable thanks to three fold-out sides.
Also notable is its structural design, featuring a steel grid on the bow and two lateral wings that are integrated into its superstructure and then connected at the start of the walkways to the gunwale.
The prow, which is instead decidedly contemporary in design, contributes to enhance the model’s aerodynamics.
The whole area of the bow moorings is concealed, operated with an automatic up/down mechanism to maintain the streamlined design aesthetic.
The interiors can be styled to the owner’s wishes, assisted by the designers of the Studio Fulvio De Simoni Firm and by the Project Architects of the Superyacht Yard of Ferretti Group. The entire interior design is tailored to mirror the owner’s style, by making additions to or modifying the layout options offered by the shipyard.
The hull number one of Pershing 140 installs four MTU 16 V 2000 M96L engines, each with 2,600 HP. The hydro-jet propulsion assures excellent performance levels, both at cruising and maximum speed, which can achieve 35 knots and 38 knots respectively.
