Pershing, a Ferretti Group brand, will debut its Pershing 70 at the Cannes Yachting Festival, from Sept 9-14.

The yacht is the result of the cooperation between yacht designer Fulvio De Simoni and Advanced Yacht Technology & Design, the Group’s research, style and development centre.

The objective of Ferretti Group’s designers and engineers was to create bold shapes, while remaining in line with Pershing’s style.

The pearl colour of the hull, main deck and superstructure contrasts with the carbon grey of the hardtop, from which two large side wings open up. The generous cockpit is comparable to that of larger models, extending across the entire width of the hull.

Below deck, there are three cabins with three bathrooms and the galley. The full-beam master suite is accessed by descending from the mezzanine level towards the stern.

Instead of being controlled through traditional control panels and switches, the entire yacht can be controlled through NaviOP touch-screen displays installed on the pilot station.

The yacht is fitted with twin MTU 10V 2000 M94 engines allowing the Pershing 70 to reach a maximum speed of 44 knots and a cruising speed of 39 knots.
