New Model: Pershing GTX80

The first Pershing GTX80, was launched on April three in the port of Fano. The yacht has the sporty spirit and generous living spaces typical of the Pershing GTX range. The new Pershing GTX80, about 24 meters long, is the phenomenal result of collaboration between the Ferretti Group Product Strategy Committee led by Piero Ferrari, design studio Vallicelli Design and the Group’s Engineering Department. The GTX80 is the first in 39 years of Pershing to feature a different design to that of Fulvio de Simoni, it will be interesting if with this new model Vallicelli will take design charge for the World famous and iconic Italian brand or if he will be responsible for the GTX series.  The interiors and exteriors on board the GTX80 communicate seamlessly with each other, creating a unique space and a new dimension of comfort. The yacht has two decks, plus a sport-bridge, and can comfortably accommodate up to eight guests thanks to the new four-cabin layout. There is also a cabin with two beds for the crew. The exterior styling, in classic Pershing grey, features a number of innovative choices: designed without stanchions, it points up the near vertical bow and the continuous, slightly convex sheer-line. In the bow section, the bulwarks have been lightened by a longitudinal slot, while those in the stern have a dual function, both incorporating the winches and converting into lateral terraces that swing down. This is the first time a solution like this has been adopted on a Pershing model and the aim is to establish even closer contact with the water. One of the outdoor spaces that stands out most is the stern platform, which has three different positions, making it a versatile and extremely important feature of the boat. It can be left in the default position, raised using the dual linear lift so that it’s flush with the beach area, extending and integrating the aft living space in conjunction with the lateral terraces when open, and also used for launching tenders. The bright, airy spaces and extensive glazing on the main deck are a signature feature of this model. Immediately aft of the helm station, which is fitted with three 24-inch screens is a living area containing a generous corner sofa, a dining area.  On this first hull this was made in a formal version with free standing furniture, and a fully integrated galley/bar in spaces directly overlooking the cockpit. This innovative design solution again underscores the focus on creating fluid, intercommunicating spaces. The black elements in the kitchen area create a slight contrast with the pale parquet and are color-coordinated with the metallic silver lacquered ceiling, which features multiple intersecting diagonal LED lights that diffuse light across the entire deck, from exterior to interior in a pared-down design that focuses on multiple angles. The sundeck is very spacious at 23 square meters, it’s 60% larger than the category average, while at the same time guaranteeing internal space of gran Turismo proportions. This effect is partly due to the sleekly dynamic arch-shaped deckhouse. The hard-top available for the sundeck, this first unit has one is made of carbon fiber to deliver the utmost in performance and aesthetic appearance. Equipped with three 1,000hp Volvo engines with IPS pod propulsion the Pershing GTX80 reaches a top speed of 34 knots and a cruise of 28.
