As Pershing promises its latest range will be so revolutionary that it will redefine the boundaries of the 25 to 40-metre market, the upcoming delivery date for the first 35.2-metre unit is becoming increasingly anticipated. We check in to see exactly what to expect from the Pershing TØ line and how it is set to push forward the world of avant-garde yachting.
Set to revolutionise the concept of sports yachting, the first hull in Pershing's TØ range is well underway and set to arrive in Mondolfo this summer where she will be launched. First announced at the 2020 BOOT Dusseldorf show, TØ is the result of a collaboration between Fulvio De Simoni, Ferretti Group’s Product Strategy Committee and the group’s engineering department. The yard was able to put together a model of the hull at Ferretti Group’s Plug & Mould Plant in the lead up to the yacht’s 2022 delivery date.
Top design, high-tech and big performance
Said to have “unmatched performance”, the TØ project is reliant on the team at Pershing to merge their skills in innovation, cutting-edge technology and expert craftsmanship in order to “take the design and engineering challenges inherent in the project to the next evolutionary level”. To do so, the shipyard’s technicians are building in composite using a variety of techniques, including traditional construction methods and milled blocks.
First of the TØ range
The new range will "redefine the boundaries of the 25 to 40-metre market segment” and maintain the strong and identifiable Pershing style. The project is a result of Pershing listening to “the new demands of its customers” and promises to be "unlike anything ever seen before.”
Extraordinary living spaces
In a bid to upcycle the family-friendly yacht design, TØ will take on a "new stylistic paradigm" with an emphasis on its sporting capabilities. Described to offer “game-changing new standards in yachting pleasure”, Pershing and designer Fulvio De Simoni have worked together to re-engineer several common yachting concepts. The yard has revealed that onboard liveability, comfort and maximised volume are key elements to the design, and will include lots of internal areas with plenty of well-integrated indoor and outdoor spaces.
