Project: Pershing GTX80

The show flows on, and following the launch of the GTX116 this 2023 year, the Pershing GTX range enters its second phase with the project for a smaller GTX80 announced during the Dusseldorf boat show and set to launch in 2024.  These are some of the first renderings for the smaller GTX, the grand tourer crossover by Pershing. Designed as all Pershing since the brand was founded by Fulvio de Simoni the GTX80 is a super sport yacht of 24 meters in length, with a profile which is sportier leaner and symmetric, unlike the bigger 35 meter sister which is a more adventurous looking and features an asymmetric design with a side deck to port side and full-width to starboard.  Long time Pershing fans might also notice the GTX80 semi-circle side profile coach roof window design which echoes that of the integrated windscreen the brand and Fulvio de Simoni introduced in 1991.  Another different feature of the GTX80 to that of the larger sister will also be the opening drop down bulk-heads aft which double the size of the beach club bathing area.  The Pershing GTX80 will offer a four double guest cabin eight berths layout, with a crew cabin sleeping two located to starboard in between the engine room and cabin area.  The main deck of the GTX80 layout is an open astern galley to port side, a relax chaise lounge with low table opposite, an American dinner sofa forward, and central two-seats helm station, with port and starboard doors which lead to the fore deck.  The Pershing GTX80 also has a sport-flying-bridge leading you up with a stair-way to starboard, and a layout with a central sun-pad, dinette and helm station.  The fore-deck also features an entertainment dining relaxing area with dinette and a sun-pad further forward.  The Pershing GTX80 comes with a host of options from dark to light mood finishing inside, to the choice to offer a dining table in replacement to the chaise lounge to starboard, the fourth cabin replaced by a lower L-shaped dinette, and the optional T-top serving the flying bridge.  The Pershing GTX80 is to be powered by triple Volvo 1000hp with IPS pod drives, and so far no other engine options are known, although the official press release for the model is not yet out.  If further information is out this project post will be updated.
