New 140 the first Pershing to be built at Ferretti Group’s Ancona superyacht yard
Pershing’s new flagship, the 140, has just hit the water at the builder’s superyacht yard in Ancona, Italy.
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 aluminium superyacht made by Pershing and the first Pershing to be produced at the Ancona superyacht yard, a Ferretti Group facility specialised in building super and mega yachts above 40m, 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.
A key feature of the 140 is 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.
