Project: Pershing 82

Pershing presents the project for a new 82 model, based on the 2008 launched 80, and following the pattern of the latest 74; meaning addition of a sun sport flybridge deck on top.  Access to the fly bridge will be from an automated hatch and a carbon steel staircase, a little mechanical masterpiece created by AYT in close collaboration with Besenzoni. The staircase is decentralized and drops automatically into the cockpit by electro-hydraulic control and automatically disappears upwards when closed, freeing the space in the cockpit. The flybridge layout will offer a simple functional form: next to the retractable helm, there are two comfortable lateral chaise lounge by the pilot’s seat, in which a practical minibar has been placed. Another modification from the 80 is also the bow sun-deck, now with sunbeds having separate and folding backrests; for safety purposes on the sun-deck there are two lateral handles and a pulpit which blend in completely with the aesthetics of the superstructure.  Another addition of the 82 will be for an extended bathing platform, and new larger view windows.  Accommodation will be for a four double cabins layout, with collaboration from Poltrona Frau continuing also for this new 82 model. Power is from twin MTU 2483hp with ZF Searex surface drives propulsion which give a top speed of 45 knots, and a cruise of 40 delivering a range of over three hundred nautical miles.  The Pershing 82 will also feature the new ZF Autotrim which increases comfort level at sea and better safety features.
