Lee Marine, Phuket’s leading yacht brokerage, is displaying four Ferretti Group yachts on the water at the PIMEX Phuket International Boat show, including, for the first time in Thailand, a new model Pershing 64 just off the boat from Ferretti’s Italian factory.

The first, a Pershing 64 is powered by twin MAN diesel inboard engines, and is capable of making 48 knots. It has a sliding rear bulkhead to the salon that can be easily opened or closed for air conditioning or open-air ventilation.

The second, also a Pershing but this time the Pershing 92, is powered by a pair of MTU engines that provide a maximum speed of 41 knots. Sleek and sporty, it has four cabins, a huge tender garage and a sun deck with a driving position on top.

Next is a Ferretti 881 RPH superyacht, again powered by twin MTU engines, which can easily be sailed without a professional crew despite its considerable size. The ship features four cabins, four heads, a large saloon, a raised pilothouse, and a large garage aft with that can store a jet ski.

Finally, a Ferretti 720 rounds off the quartet. The vessel features four owner/guest cabins, all en suite, and two crew cabins. It is available in three versions; either with a built in Bimini top, a roll bar, or with a hardtop and awning. The 720 has a top speed of 30 knots.

The four yachts comprise Lee Marine and Ferretti Group’s ‘on the water’ exhibition, marking a renewed commitment to Thailand by Ferretti, as part of its global strategy of being closer to its core markets. All but the Pershing 64’ are locally owned.
