The Pershing 72 is capable of 45 knots top speed when the high performance, deep vee hull, twin MTU 1823 hp engines and Arneson surface-piercing drives combine in full symphony. At dockside with mooring lines attached, the 72 conveys the impression of power and poise, and quite simply looks like it’s doing a hundred miles an hour standing still. This 72 model is a stunning vessel with pearlescent paint that appears to shift colour from silver to bronze depending on light and viewing angle.
Pershing is also about style, comfort and luxury, which are as abundantly available as the horsepower in the engine room. This new 72 model provides for a roomy floor plan, given this is a performance sport yacht. It features a 22.26 metre (73 foot) LOA, 21.67 metre (71 foot) hull length and maximum beam is just over 5.5 metres (18 foot).
On the 72 the designers have even gone so far as to have specified all furnishings to be upholstered in the ultra-exclusive Poltrona Frau leather brand, including the dual pilot helm chairs, which also feature double-electric motion adjustment to suit any driver preference, sitting or standing. Where the design of the 72 really shines is in the forward section of the saloon where the typically futuristic Pershing helm station is located, slightly offset to the right of centre, the twin electrically adjustable helm chairs sitting on a stylish storage cabinet. Located between the seats are the integrated ZF throttles and gear quadrant.
The Pershing 72 is a highly desirable motor yacht which is awesomely styled, immensely powerful, and effortlessly fast. It is one of the very, very latest yachting accoutrements and as such will be in high demand everywhere.
