The new Pershing 80 at 24 metres is a much waited model in this size from this renowned builder, filling the gap between the 72 and 90 models, left empty with the stop in production of the 76. The new Pershing as has been for the Pesaro builder since it's early beginning in the eighties, continues the collaboration with renowned yacht designer Fulvio De Simoni, who created an exterior profile similar to the successful 72, latest introduced model of the range and rumour has it sold out till 2010. The new Pershing will have an all around deck, with the forward section reserved for lounging, thanks to the much requested c-shaped settee / dinette and a sunbed. The interior is divided in three separate areas: main deck area reserved for entertainment with the upper saloon, dining and helm station, lower deck area reserved for the 4 cabins for the owner and his guests and the crew area adjoined with the galley midships, for maximum privacy and connection with the main deck. The new 80 will have the usual Pershing 40 knots plus performance, but also technical innovations as seen in the latest models, transforming a closed hard top into an open entertaining area should be found in this soon to come super sport yacht. The Pesaro builder seems to want to make the 2008 year one to remember, of newly introduced models if this will take shape also this year. That will be some kind of record with a total of three new models all of important sizes: the 64 announced in Genova as a project, the 80 and now the 108, filling the empty size between the 90 and the 115 flagship of the range. As is the case of the 80 and the 64, Fulvio De Simoni continues his follow up of the design introduced with the 72, especially for the upper coach roof lines, giving variation of the theme with unique characteristics for each model. Little information is so far available about this project, but designs show also the much requested feature of a sport flying bridge / upper deck for entertainment, of which I imagine a second helm area will be available as optional. What will be for sure standard from Pershing, is the usual high performance but also the Moving Idea concept of transforming various environments on board the yacht as introduced with the 72 about a year ago.
