Pershing 82 VHP and Pershing 74
New versions offering fresh delights
For over 30 years, Pershing has epitomized the idea of cutting-edge yachting that unfailingly sets new benchmarks in design, luxury and performance. It has once again underlined its credentials on this front with the revamped versions of two worldwide best seller yachts – new Pershing 74 – an exciting, highly contemporary incarnation of the one of the brand’s most emblematic yachts, and the Pershing 82 ‘Very High Performance’ (VHP), a ‘jet fighter’ of the seas that has both a new interior design scheme and more powerful engines.
The breath-taking Pershing 82 VHP is capable of breaking the 50-knot barrier and it has an astonishing cruising speed of 45 knots thanks to the new combination of twin MTU 16V 2000 M96L engines that generate 2,638 mhp at 2,450 rpm, together with Top System 95S surface propellers. In order to accommodate these changes, Pershing’s team of designers and engineers has altered the layout of the engine room, the heights of the stern garage and the positions of the air intakes. The interiors of the Pershing 82 VHP meet the same exceptional standards set on the performance front. They are sparklingly luxurious and feature a tasteful array of superlatively sophisticated, quintessentially Italian products and style.
The Pershing 74 is one of the company’s biggest recent successes and it too has been given a substantial redesign. The new key features are thee updated shades of the on-borad décor and the new Alpi wood and lacquer details, which provide a common thread running through the different rooms, appearing in everything from the curtain and mirror frames to the bathroom cabinets. It is equipped with twin MTU 12V 2000 M96L high performance engines that generate 1,948 mhp. They give a top speed of 44 knots and a cruising speed of 40 knots, while offering maximum comfort with the trim at all times.
