Words fail us when we look at a masterpiece, so we have to settle for numbers: over 24 metres long and 5.50 metres wide, with a weight of 56.3 tons that move 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 70 dBA.
Here is another prestigious statistic: three World Yacht Trophies that heralded its debut at the Festival de La Plaisance in Cannes. So you will understand why this fabulous 82-footer (heir to the Pershing 80) has been called “the missile disguised as a yacht.” Setting aside its missile-like turn of speed, let us cite its comfort and and other qualities: the sundeck that can be reached with the retractable carbon-fibre stairway, the famous folding and retractable French door that separates the cockpit and lounge, and the luxurious and high-end interiors furnished by Poltrona Frau.
Power, comfort and performance are further reflected in the full-speed maneuvering, which thanks to the Autotrim system is executed without losing a single knot of speed. The excitement turns into pure adrenaline when experienced in the master cabin, where the maxi open-view window ends up underwater due to the heel of the boat, offering you the thrill of a supersonic voyage through the waves. Going back to the numbers, the Pershing 82 has only one drawback: sooner or later you will have to disembark onto dry land.
