New Model: Pershing 62

On the 18th of July, the Marina dei Cesari hosted a new important moment in Pershing’s thirty years of history: the launching of the new 62 model. Over eighteen metres long and a little bit less to five meters in beam, the newest model was created by the since ever designer of Pershing Fulvio De Simoni, in collaboration with Ferretti Group Advanced Yacht Technology and Design the team of engineers, architects and designers.  The Pershing 62 touched the sea for the first time with great joy and the pride of all the Italian boat builder team. Throughout the coming weeks it will be tested and the on board preparation will take place. The vessel will then be ready for the official launching and delivery.  The Pershing 62 will be World previewed during the Cannes show in early September, and after that it will head to Genoa and the Fort Lauderdale show. The Pershing 56 and 58, two of the most successful models of the brand, naturally led to the new 62 which catches the eye immediately due to its sleek and streamlined profile. The hull line and superstructure are designed to give the boat an aggressive and sporty spirit, enhanced by the shape of hull glazing, a typical characteristic of the new Pershing direction.  The new 62 is designed to guarantee optimal performance at sea, and is available with two engine versions both from MTU: twin 1381, or optional 1524hp units. With the larger option, the Pershing 62’ reaches a top speed of 46 knots and a cruising speed of 42. The standard version of the Pershing 62’ is equipped with Searex surface propellers andupon request, it is possible to install an Autotrim system.  The first Pershing 62 unit was manufactured with a standard layout, including three cabins the owner's suite, a VIP and guest cabin at the bow, and three bathrooms with separate showers. The guest bathroom, which has a double entrance from the cabin and from the lobby on a midway floor, can also be used as a day toilet. Along the port-side wall there is the galley, which receives additional light from an opening in the ceiling. The alternative version has two cabins, the Owner's suite and a VIP cabin, while the guest cabin is replaced by a living room furnished with a queen size sofa bed. Both versions have a crew cabin which can be reached from the cockpit, with a single bed and integrated bathroom.
