Pershing Yachts

Based in Mondolfo, Italy, luxury yacht builder Pershing builds high performance composite motor yachts from 14.24 to 35 metres in length. Pershing is owned by major Italian boat-building company Ferretti Group.

History of Pershing Yachts

Luxury yacht builder Pershing was founded in 1981 by Italian entrepreneurs Tilli Antonelli, Fausto Filippetti and Giuliano Onori, who established the shipyard as Cantiere Navale dell’Adriatico. In 1985, the founders collaborated with yacht designer Fulvio De Simone on their first performance luxury motor yacht model, the Pershing 45. This fast motor yacht launched the Pershing luxury yacht range, named after the Pershing missile to denote its high-performance design concept. Luxury yacht builder Pershing joined the Ferretti Group in 1998, and the size of the Pershing luxury performance yachts continued to grow. In 2012, the Chinese Shandong Heavy Industry Group – Weichai Group acquired a 75 per cent interest in the Ferretti Group, including luxury yacht builder Pershing.

Notable Pershing Yachts

The 35.37-metre Pershing 115 superyacht, designed by Fulvio De Simone in collaboration with Advanced Yacht Technology and the Ferretti Group engineering team, is the flagship of the shipyard’s fleet. The Pershing 115 motor yacht has a top speed of 38 knots with twin 7,400-hp MTU diesel engines. When an aviation gas turbine is added to the propulsion package, the maximum speed of the Pershing 115 performance yacht increases to 52 knots.
