It is immediately apparent from the Pershing 72’s radically new hull profile, the fruit of Fulvio De Simoni’s pencil, that this craft is a forerunner. Here the focus is clearly on technology, starting with the stowaway glass partition between the external cockpit and the internal saloon, an area that can be completely opened to the sky thanks to an innovative sliding hard top. Another important feature is the revolutionary gangplank created together with Besenzoni. This multi-purpose device acts as a stowaway gangplank, swimming ladder, and mooring ramp when in port. It takes up hardly any space at all and therefore leaves the engine room free for any ordinary or special maintenance. The interiors and overall design of the Pershing 72’ also offer a series of original solutions, such as the new, unbroken window line, the position of the galley in the bows, located at an intermediate level between the main deck and the below deck area and the vast storeroom below it. Pershing’s collaboration with the prestigious Poltrona Frau company has created exquisite fittings and furnishings, including leather upholstered chairs, sofas and ceiling panels, all painstakingly designed to combine, in every environment, inimitable Pershing style with the value, top quality craftsmanship and superior functionality typical of Poltrona Frau furniture. With its two 1823 hp MTU common rail engines combined with Arneson propulsion, this craft can also reach top speeds of up to 45 knots, while maintaining a trim that ensures high comfort.
