Progress report on the Pershing 108 superyacht
by Raphael Montigneaux
Unveiled one year ago, the construction of the first Pershing 108 is well under way.
This new 33m series is designed by Fulvio De Simoni. More refined than previous Pershing projects, it features a large sundeck and foredeck, incorporating a solarium and seating area.
The interior design is a collaboration with Poltrona Frau - responsible for the seating and details - and ErnestoMeda - responsible for the galley. The layout provides accommodation for 8 guests in a master, a VIP, a double and a twin cabin. Another version with a fifth single bed cabin is also available.
The Pershing 108 is powered by three MTU engines of 1,815kw giving a maximum speed of 41 knots and a cruise speed of 23 knots with two engines. On one engine at 11 knots it has a range of 1,070 nautical miles.
The first Pershing 108 is scheduled for launch towards the end of the year.
