Project: Pershing 92

While many are waiting for the new Pershing 108 to go into the water, this famous builder presents the project of a 92, which eventually will replace the 90 presented in 2005. Fulvio De Simoni who has been Pershing designer since 1985, continues the new course with the 92 as undertaken in 2007 with the 72, and followed later on by the 64, 80, and the in progress 108. As expected the 92 will feature many must have features of modern Super Sport Yachts, as a second helm up top, and fore deck settee. The 92 will also continue the collaborations as undertaken by Pershing in recent periods with Poltrana Frau who takes care for the soft furnishing of the interior, and ErnestoMeda for the galley. Other usual Pershing concepts also featured on the 92 will be the full opening patio door as featured in the main deck, making the interior saloon a one part entertainment area with the aft cockpit. The 92 in collaboration with Besenzoni will also have a unique folding glass door up front where from the bow one can go into the interior saloon. Accommodation lower deck will be a four cabin plan, with full beam owners suite, VIP to fore, and two double guest cabin in between. Here is a semi custom plan with the owners cabin being available in three different layouts. Power for the 92 will be from twin MTU 2638hp coupled to Arneson surface drives, which should give the slender hulled 92 a top speed of 42 knots, and a cruise of 38.
