One of the most highly anticipated superyacht launches of 2017, has taken a major step forward. Pershing Yachts has issued a press release announcing that its Pershing 140 is on the move!
The all-aluminum hull of the new Pershing 140, scintillated in the sunlight as she was moved in a spectacular operation that took her to Pershing shipyard in Ancona, where all final construction of the superyacht will take place. The Ancona yard is where the Ferretti Group produces all of it’s 90 to 300 foot fleet of lightweight alloy, steel and fiberglass hulls, under the CRN, Pershing, Riva and Custom Line brands.
Pershing, now a part of the Ferretti Group, has been designing and producing luxury motoryachts for almost three decades. Pershing yachts are known for superior performance, style, advanced construction materials, and exquisite interiors that deliver huge marks on elegance and comfort.
The Pershing 140 is a collaboration between the Ferretti Group Product Strategy Committee, the group’s Engineering Department and the architect Fulvio De Simoni. She is the largest yacht ever built under the Pershing brand, and the first in its 32-year history to be built in Ancona, Pershing’s new “home,” alongside their original production site in Mondolfo.
“We are proud and excited to be opening a new chapter in the history of the marque,” commented Stefano De Vivo, Chief Commercial Officer of the Ferretti Group. “Pershing 140 is the epitome of over thirty years of state-of-the-art yacht building, always a wave ahead of everyone else in terms of innovative style and design, standard of comfort and sailing performance.” He added, “This, our new flagship, takes the sporting spirt and racing flair that lovers of the Pershing brand have come to expect, to new heights. Those familiar with [our brand] will love its powerful yet streamlined and aerodynamic profile as well as its fabulous spaces, providing unparalleled comfort in a yacht of this size.”
She is now secured and positioned in the Ancona yard, where the initial stages of construction have begun and will continue, with complete assembly through September.
