Pershing 108: Versatility and style

Pershing_108.jpgFree-standing furniture, flexible layouts and cutting-edge technology.

This new Pershing model has been designed through a combination of the skilled pencil strokes of designer Fulvio De Simoni and farsighted vision of Tilli Antonelli, Chairman and Founder of the shipyard, and features the concept of versatility in its DNA. This model stands out for the graceful, easily recognisable lines which characterise the entire Pershing range: the windows in the superstructure continue to be developed in accordance with the shipyard’s philosophy, whilst the Pershing 108’ features a beautifully aggressive profile, technological advances and, of course, Pershing performance.

The performance of this model is fully in line with Pershing’s style, and features one important innovation. For the first time ever, the shipyard has decided to fit split engines on one of its models, focussing on ecology whilst still maintaining high performance. The standard version is  powered by three 1815kw MTU diesel engines, combined with the thrust applied by three Arneson surface propellers, driving her to a speed of 41 knots. The central engine ensures correct air intake and a constant performance, whilst the hull structure has made it possible to create a particularly efficient engine room, with clear advantages for the living areas.

This cutting-edge technology also offers owners a number of navigation alternatives. Specifically, she can achieve extraordinary range when only using the central engine, and sail at 11 knots for 1070 nautical miles. Of course, the Pershing 108’ can also maintain a cruise speed of 23 knots, whilst operating on two engines.

A luminous interior

The design of the interior is characterised by the use of “Canaletto walnut” for the furniture and by subtle indirect lighting. However, it is natural light which is the greatest feature of the architecture of the salon, due to the generous openings of the large side windows and exclusive concealing salon door, which consists of two independent sections featuring electro-hydraulic controls, and can slide into the floor to create a single area measuring over 70 m².

In the aft part of the salon , there is table for 10 and a large C-shaped sofa produced by Poltrona Frau. The sofa has been positioned to face a AV unit housing a 50” television with high-low lift, and the area also has a fridge, and storage for the Christofle tableware.

Access to the accommodation area below decks is provided by a large stairway leading downward from behind the steering seats and comprises a large VIP cabin in the bow, 2 twin guest cabins, and a full beam master cabin in the centre of the yacht.

Both guest cabins, featuring twin beds and en-suite heads, are an extraordinary step forward in terms of on-board versatility. Indeed, they allow owners to alter the layout of the cabin according to their requirements. The beds have been designed in such a way they can be set side by side to form either a king-size or two singles.

A 5 cabin version of this model is also available, where the studio/cabin can be replaced with another single cabin.

Crew accommodation is located astern, and accessible both from in and outside the yacht. It features three cabins with excellent services, laundry and a dinette connected to the galley.

The detail, is in the design of the Pershing 108’, which once again affirms the shipyard’s decision to make materials, solutions, technology and style into something truly unique.
