Pershing’s most superior creations to date, the Pershing 74 and Pershing 82 “Very High Performance” (VHP) yachts are on the market. At the top of the luxury yachting game for over 30 years, the magic is evident in these 2 new models, designed by the revered FulvioDe Simoni in partnership with the Ferretti Group’s Product Strategy Committee and Engineering Department.

These super yachts set new records for both style and speed with the Pershing 82VHP breaking the 50-knot barrier, with a cruising speed of 45 knots. The twin MTU 16V 2000 M96L engines generate 2,638 mph at 2,450 rpm guided by Top System 95S surface propellers. The allure can be found in their sophisticated furnishings made from refined wood, radiating the quality and class we have come to associate with Italian products.


The Pershing 82 VHP cries elegance and excellence, with dark or pale streaked oak and Poltrona Frau furnishings used throughout the main lounge, where you can enjoy panoramic views from your cocoon of solitude, including a large sofa by “Quadra” and a wooden table elegantly glass topped by “Laurana”. The overall mood of the lounge area is open and détente. The layout of the engine room, heights of the stern garage and positions of the air intakeshave been altered to accommodate the significant increase in power performance.

The Pershing 74 has been refurnished with Alpi wood and lacquer details, tying the rooms throughout, with the lounge furnished with a large, L-shaped sofa and retractable 40” flat screen TV. The oak is complimented by Poltrona Frau leather furnishings and king-size bed that offer much more than simple comfort. Vescom wallpaper is highlighted by cleverly placed LED lighting in the master suite, with large mirrors that make the room feel airy and open, completed with a chaise longue with textile upholstery by Zimmer + Rohde. The luxury and elegance of the master suite runs through to the guest cabins, with ivory carpets throughout.En-suites can be found in both the master and VIP suites that embrace the class of “Antoniolupi” basins.
