The new Pershing 70 - which is the result of the cooperation between yacht designer Fulvio De Simoni, the name behind the entire Pershing range, and AYT&D - Advanced Yacht Technology & Design, the Group’s research, style and product development centre - will strengthen the brand’s offer in the strategic 60-to-80 feet market segment, only one year after the launch of the Pershing 62, whose success it aims to emulate. And just like the Pershing 62, this new yacht belongs to a “new generation” of Pershing crafts, characterized by increasingly dynamic lines and innovative design solutions.
From the very first glance, the Pershing 70 strikes the eye for its futuristic and imposing shapes, enhanced by a carefully-selected colour palette and original structural design.
On this first hull, the brilliant “Champagner Pearl” of the hull, main deck and superstructure contrasts with the carbon grey of the hardtop, from which two large side wings open up, connecting to the gunwale and featuring a glazed surface at the beginning of the side walkways, which result in a restyled, generous cockpit, comparable to that of larger models, extending across the entire width of the hull. The yacht’s sporty appearance is completed by the handrails that ‘cut across’ the side glazing on the main deck and the large windows on the hull, at the height of the owner’s quarters, which draw inspiration from those seen on the 62 footer, so as to maintain the same family feeling. The windows of the VIP cabin, located forward, feature an identical design.
On the Pershing 70, the interiors stand out for their innovative layout and décor, characterized by a skilful
use of contrasting colours, with the light shades of ashwood of the furniture frames alternating with the dark tones of the lacquered charcoal grey finishes.
White is the colour chosen for the deck structure and the ceiling panels, consisting of parallel strips fitted with LED lighting systems. Wooden floors complete the decor on the main deck, while furnishings comprise a large leather sofa with storage drawers, an extendable dining table seating up to six people and a low unit with a 46’’ screen TV (a concealing TV screen is available upon request). The starboard-side pilot station features a Poltrona Frau two-seater leather bench. Next to it, a second living area hosts an L-shaped sofa which can be replaced with a bar area upon request.
Below deck, the layout comprises three cabins with three bathrooms and the galley. The full-beam master suite is accessed by descending from the mezzanine level towards the stern of the yacht. Inside the cabin, a partition element decorated with wave-shaped leather inserts visually separates the entrance area - fitted with a double wardrobe - from the bedroom itself. The same inserts pattern unravels throughout the cabin, on the wall behind the bed and besides the book unit with audio/video system standing in front of it. The master bathroom on this first Pershing 70 features extremely original decor choices, especially in the shower box, where the main wall is fitted with horizontal metallic strips in different colours which, when “soaked” with light, create a
‘palette’ in line with the latest trends in interior design.
All other areas below deck are accessed directly from the mezzanine level: to starboard is the galley, while to portside is the large third cabin, with twin beds and bathroom with separate shower, which also serves as a day toilet thanks to a secondary access directly from the lobby. The VIP cabin, at the extreme bow, is truly spacious and well-equipped, with a double wardrobe and an en-suite bathroom with separate shower.
