THE MISSILE DISGUISED AS A YACHT
Words fail us when we look at a masterpiece, so we have to settle for numbers: Over 24 meters long and 5.50 meters wide, with a weight of 56.3 tons that moves at the fantastic speed of 45 knots with a 300-mile range. All this while being able to calmly chat in a normal tone of voice because the noise levels have been calculated at only 70 dBA.
Featuring a streamlined and aggressive external profile, Pershing 82 immediately shows its strong sporting spirit. The eye-catching distinctive feature is the sundeck with an optional retractable helm station that can be reached by means of an innovative carbon-steel staircase, lowered automatically into the cockpit by an electro-hydraulic control.
Practicality combined with design reigns in the large cockpit, designed to make the best of sociability aboard. The sundeck is completely independent from the opening of the large garage, whose folding bottom facilitates the movement of the Jet Ski and a tender. Below deck, Pershing 82 is a custom-made model, tailored to the ship owner’s requests.
Two powerful MTU 16V 2000 M96 of 2435 mhp (1792 kW) with surface-piercing propellers ensure a top speed of 45 knots and a cruising speed of 40 knots. However, with the alternative engines, twin MTU 16V 2000 M96L of 2638 mhp, the Pershing 82 can break the 50-knot barrier, with up to 42 knots of cruising speed!
