Pershing, a brand by Ferretti Group, has announced the launch of the third unit of Pershing 108. The yacht touched water at the Marina dei Cesari in Fano, in Italy.
For the first time, the propulsion system on the Pershing 108 is divided into three engines, with the aim of guaranteeing great performance and with environmental impact in mind.
In the shipyard version, the Pershing 108 has three MTU 2638 mHp (1939 kW) 16V 2000 M 94 L diesel engines and, thanks to its three surface propellers, it may achieve a top speed of more than 42 knots.
The Pershing 108 can manage high travel ranges, exceeding 1000 miles at 10 knots and with very limited consumption at these speeds. With only the central engine running, this yacht can be very quiet at low speeds.
In the absence of high load conditions, it can plane even with just two engines and reach speeds worthy of note. Generally speaking, extremely high levels of comfort have been measured on board. Translated into DbA, this means a new benchmark for this yacht category.
Highly significant performance meets the “family feeling” that over the years has made all the models in the Pershing fleet unique and recognisable.
With 32.90 m LOA, the Pershing 108 is the result of a collaboration between yacht designer Fulvio De Simoni and the Ferretti Group Engineering Department. The yacht features four guest cabins and three dedicated to the crew, and offers customers the possibility of choosing from various interior layouts, with a view to providing even more versatile, customized spaces.
In the coming weeks, the interior furnishings and non-structural décor will be completed. At the same time, technical testing will be carried out on the new vessel, on the systems, and all the control and infotainment software will be checked, in addition to the performance trials.
The shipyard says the yacht will be delivered to its European owner in the coming weeks.
