Pershing 108'. Versatility and style.
Pershing 108'. Versatility and style.
Free-standing furniture, flexible layouts and cutting-edge technology.
This new Pershing model has been designed through a combination of the skilled pencil strokes of designer Fulvio De Simoni and farsighted vision of Tilli Antonelli, Chairman and Founder of the shipyard, and features the concept of versatility in its DNA. Thanks to the fundamental support of the Pershing technical staff and Ferretti S.p.A.'s AYT (Advanced Yacht Technology), this model stands out for the graceful, easily recognisable lines which characterise the entire Pershing range: the windows in the superstructure continue to be developed in accordance with the shipyard's philosophy, whilst the Pershing 108' features a beautifully aggressive profile, technological advances and, of course, Pershing performance.
Owners and their guests become protagonists in the Pershing 108', due to a radically innovative internal layout, featuring areas which can be modified to suit any given situation.
Painstaking care has been taken over the elegance of this model, working with well-established partners such as Poltrona Frau and new, exclusive ones, like ErnestoMeda.
The performance of this model is fully in line with Pershing's style, and features one important innovation. For the first time ever, the shipyard has decided to fit split engines on one of its models, focussing on ecology whilst still maintaining high performance.
The standard version is powered by three 1815kw MTU diesel engines, combined with the thrust applied by three Arneson surface propellers, driving her to a speed of 41 knots. The central engine ensures correct air intake and a constant performance, whilst the hull structure has made it possible to create a particularly efficient engine room, with clear advantages for the living areas.
This cutting-edge technologyalso offers owners a number of navigation alternatives. Specifically, she can achieve extraordinary range when only using the central engine, and sail at 11 knots for 1070 nautical miles.
Architecture, space and design, from stern to bow, were the overriding criteria for this project , and making her the reference point for the international nautical industry.
The foredeck bow area features a semicircular sofa and a table which can be lowered to the height of the seating in order to create a single sundeck area protected by a retractable bimini top. A large upper sundeck has been designed in such a way that it features an area where those aboard can relax in the sun in complete privacy.
This unbelievably spacious sundeck features an innovative steering console, two wide sundecks, an ice box and large C-shaped sofa with a table which can also be lowered to the height of the seating. It features a small goods lift which goes down to the galley, and bimini top, making this area both independent and functional, and enabling those aboard to relax completely, and enjoy themselves.
The large cockpit is a vast covered area which can be used both during the day and in the evening, and features two sofas set directly opposite each other, a table which can seat 10, a bar unit and another large sun pad area.
The design of the interior is characterised by the use of “Canaletto walnut" for the furniture and by subtle indirect lighting. However, it is natural light which is the greatest feature of the architecture of the salon, due to the generous openings of the large side windows and exclusive concealing salon door, whichconsists of two independent sections featuring electro-hydraulic controls, and can slide into the floor to create a single area measuring over 70 m².
In the aft part of the salon , there is table for 10 and a large C-shaped sofa produced by Poltrona Frau. The sofa has been positioned to face a AV unit housing a 50" television with high-low lift, and the area also has a fridge, and storage for the Christofle tableware.
The helm station comprises of three comfortable, central, adjustable seats, produced in collaboration with Poltrona Frau. The steering console features the most modern navigation and communications technology currently available, and the instrumentation panel is equipped with cutting-edge solutions, such as the new Furuno system.
Access to the accommodation area below decks is provided by a large stairway leading downward from behind the steering seats and comprises a large VIP cabin in the bow, 2 twin guest cabins, and a full beam master cabin in the centre of the yacht.
The use of Poltrona Frau leather throughout the seating and beds, ensures each cabin is both welcoming and sophisticated.
Located in an unique position due to its perfectly square shape, the VIP cabin prevents those aboard from feeling they are in the bow, and offers complete comfort.
Both guest cabins, featuring twin beds and en-suite heads, are an extraordinary step forward in terms of on-board versatility. Indeed, they allow owners to alter the layout of the cabin according to their requirements. The beds have been designed in such a way they can be set side by side to form either a king-size or two singles.
The large windows which characterise the master cabin allow for evocative natural lighting. Different interior layouts are available, making this a semi-customised area and can be fitted out the owners choice of free standing furniture, i.e. beds, armchairs and tables. Additionally, this area features a walk-in wardrobe or fully equipped studio. The cabin has been finished with a large, en-suite head and separate sanitary-ware.
A 5 cabin version of this model is also available, where the studio/cabin can be replaced with another single cabin.
Crew accommodation is located astern, and accessible both from in and outside the yacht. It features three cabins with excellent services, laundry and a dinette connected to the galley.
The Pershing 108' features a creative solution for an important section of the layout, setting the galley in a passageway in her lower deck. This unique space also hosts a dinette area , enhancing the important, convivial role of the preparation area. Pershing's new working relationship with Ernestomeda has made it possible to design a galley with real character. Bases and shelving have been chosen from the Elektrarange, in Vetro Lucido (polished glass) with an aluminium frame and Less Marine® handle, all in black; Top Feel tempered, ultra light, black glass, h. 6 cm.; polished stainless steel backboard; aluminium structures (Doluflex) increadibly resilient surfaces, and with no harmful emissions.Additionally, the revolutionary ceiling-mounted “Nuvola Stripe" hood, has made it possible to save space whilst guaranteeing the purity of the air. The innovative pushbutton closing system, integrated into the Less Marine® handle on the thickness of the panel, and designed and patented by Ernestomeda, prevents involuntary opening in any sea condition and at all speeds. The galley features a small goods lift which rises to the sundeck, guaranteeing a service of excellence.
A large hangar, with drop-down swimming platform, able to house a 5 metre tender, is located astern. Pershing 108' provides for a second tender locker in the bow, which can store water toys and lifting crane.
The detail, is in the design of the Pershing 108', which once again affirms the shipyard's decision to make materials, solutions, technology and style into something truly unique.
