Pershing Reveals TØ Project Yacht Range
by Miranda Blazeby
Pershing has officially revealed new details about its fledgling TØ Project range of high-performance sports yachts.
Designed by Fulvio De Simoni, the new range will "redefine the boundaries of the 25 – 40 metre market segment", the yard said.
The range is the result of a collaboration between De Simoni, Ferretti Group’s Product Strategy Committee and the group’s engineering department.
While specific details have not yet been announced, the yard revealed that on-board liveability, comfort and maximised volume are key. This will include lots of internal areas opening to the sea, navigational comfort and integrated indoor and outdoor spaces.
Elsewhere, the yacht will preserve the distinctive Pershing "family feel" while "taking on a new stylistic paradigm", the yard said.
It comes after the yard teased the new range of sports yachts at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show last month.
Ferretti chief operating officer Stefano de Vivo said the new range would embody the "epiphany of the Pershing DNA".
He added that the range will include “a lot of carbon fibre and a lot of technology.”
It will demonstrate high performance in both speed and safety and takes inspiration from the builder's X generation, which has so far spawned the 5X, 8X and 9X.
More information about the new range will be revealed at Boot Dusseldorf in 2020 next year, where the yard will present the first yacht from the new range.
