Pershing Yachts History

Pershing yachts was founded by Fausto Filippetti, Giuliano Onori, and Tilli Antonelli with their first shipyard Cantiere Navale dell’Adriatico. In 1985 the three Italian entrepreneurs succeeded with the company’s biggest accomplishment at that time. Pershing collaborated with designer Fulvio De Simoni to produce their first yacht model, the well-known Pershing 45. Then in 1988 the Ferretti group acquired the Pershing yachts company, allowing Pershing to increase their work capacity and size with the additional funds.

For the next two decades Pershing continued to make amazing motor yachts. If you wanted a sport yacht or luxury yacht, Pershing had plenty of models to choose from. Later in 2012, the Ferretti Group was acquired by Weichan Group. Weichan bought a 75% share in the Ferretti group (which included Pershing yachts). During these changes, Pershing continued to build some beautiful yachts and reinforced their place within the industry. For the last decade Pershing have built and released many yacht models. So let´s take a look at some of their most popular models.

One of the best models released by the company is the Pershing 140. This is the first aluminium yacht built by the shipyard and is now the brand’s new flagship. This vessel is the result of a collaboration between architect Fulvio De Simoni and engineer Piero Ferrari.

Built in Ancora (Italy), this 140ft mega yacht is very impressive, featuring three huge decks. Designers and engineers had just one premise in order to bring the 140 to life: to preserve the performance of a large yacht. The high quality hull was specifically designed to exhibit excellent hydrodynamic capabilities at high speeds.

Propulsion is supplied by four MTU 16V2000 M96L engines (2635hp each) to achieve a maximum speed of 38 knots. The Pershing 140 is not only the brand’s first superyacht, it is also the first model to feature a raised cockpit. The cockpit is directly connected to the upper deck, the first in which the pilot has a reserved space on the main deck.

Exterior lines of this yacht are elegant and sporty, and are reinforced by the steel grille at the bow. Definitely a boat with unique character and improved aerodynamics. By far, one of the best creations from Pershing. The Pershing 140 falls into the super yacht category, where size is only limited by the capacity of a customer’s wallet!
