Launch of the First Unit of Pershing 140
Innovative and Spacious Aluminium Superyacht
The milestone moment took place at the innovative Super Yacht Yard in Ancona, which witnessed the launch of the first unit of Pershing 140, the brand’s new flagship and the first aluminium superyacht made by Pershing. Born from a 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-footer (LOA 43,3m) is the first Pershing to be produced at the Ferretti Group facility specialized in building super and mega yachts above 40 metres, in both steel or aluminium. Its aggressive profile blends novel design elements with iconic details that reveal a continuity with the most recent models, such as the two lateral wings integrated into the superstructure and connected to the gunwale at the start of the walkways.
Even before unleashing its power on the waves, the new Pershing 140 stands out for the innovative layout of the aft area, which features a raised cockpit that effectively becomes a mezzanine level: this creates a vast sea-facing space that rises from the water up to the sun deck, joining together the yacht’s entire aft section. The forward area too offers roomy and innovative relaxation spaces, while the upper deck – seamlessly integrated into the general profile – is a spacious panoramic terrace that may be entirely furnished with freestanding pieces. The main deck includes a lounge with bar and dining area as well as an ample private entertainment area. Below decks, finally, are 4 suites designed for privacy and comfort, including two VIPs with king-size bed and two twins with single beds.
