      In a dazzling debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2023, Pershing, a prominent brand under the Ferretti Group umbrella, has achieved an unprecedented milestone in maritime luxury. The Pershing GTX116, a pioneering sport-utility yacht, has redefined the concept of seafaring opulence with its innovative design, cutting-edge technology, and exquisite modern interiors. Notably, this remarkable vessel marks the inaugural use of 3D printing technology for the creation of ventilation grills and the windshield visor.

      Sporting a sleek Montecarlo gray exterior, a nod to its Gran Turismo influences, the 35-meter GTX116 was meticulously crafted at the Ferretti Group Plug and Mould facility. This exceptional creation is the fruit of a collaborative effort involving the Ferretti Group Product Strategy Committee, led by Piero Ferrari, the design genius Fulvio De Simoni, and the Group’s Engineering Department.

      A Haven of Luxury Afloat

      Pershing’s GTX116 offers sprawling spaces capable of hosting up to 10 guests, thanks to its innovative five-cabin layout (complemented by three additional cabins for a dedicated crew of five). The interiors, designed by Fulvio De Simoni Yacht Design, boast a harmonious blend of dark wood accents in vertical elements and serene pale color tones on the ceilings. Eucalyptus wood furnishings, complete with a grain pattern that accentuates its chiaroscuro effect, grace the living areas of this sport-utility yacht.

      The main deck unfolds over two levels, revealing a beach club on the lower floor, accessed via an extended stern platform and a separate sundeck. Ascending to the upper level, passengers are greeted by a spacious cockpit with panoramic views, leading to the main saloon that seems to merge seamlessly with the water. The saloon’s capacious living area features plush armchairs and an L-shaped sofa, nestled beside a sliding door that opens onto a waterside terrace.

      Towards the aft, an inviting dining area awaits, accommodating up to ten diners. The galley boasts a transformative design, offering the owner the flexibility to convert it into either a bar counter or a show kitchen. The helm station, with dual entrances, is a masterclass in luxury, enveloped by a windshield that spans the entire breadth of the superstructure. Black leather upholstery and a carbon fiber pilot seat dominate the helm station’s interior, featuring ultrawide screens for high-precision navigation.

      Luxury Below Deck

      Descending to the lower deck, guests will find the stern garage, capable of housing a jet tender and jet ski, with a concealed crane facilitating the effortless transfer of watercraft in and out of the azure waters. The accommodation quarters include two double cabins, two twin cabins, and a commodious owner’s cabin spanning the entire beam, all featuring private bathrooms (an additional bathroom is discreetly located on the main stairway). The dedicated crew area is equally well-appointed, boasting a pantry, laundry facilities, and three cabins.

      The Sportbridge Marvel

      A notable feature of the Pershing GTX116 is its groundbreaking sportbridge, an expansive deck covering over 40 square meters, partially sheltered by a hardtop. This impressive space incorporates a fully equipped bar area seamlessly integrated into the main structure. Despite the challenge of fitting these components into an already generous sport-utility yacht, the design team managed to house a triple waterjet propulsion system in the engine room, creating more room for the garage and beach area.

The standard configuration features three MAN V12 1800 units rated at 1,800 mhp, and the yacht proudly carries a RINA Class Certificate for Pleasure Yachts.
