New Pershing GTX116
Here is the new project from the Italian manufacturer PERSHING.
It is a new range that will be identified as GTX.
The first model is the GTX 116.
Have to admit that it is a stretch from the PERSHING signature, but this is the time (the 2020’s and beyond) to be receptive and open minded to these new concepts.
But we have to mention that the manufacturer was careful to state that this was the new approach to sport utility yachts.
The features, the concept, the configuration are really interesting but again it’s hard to recognize the Pershing signature if you see this yacht go by at the marina without reading the Pershing brandname on the yacht.
Let’s just say that we’ll get used to it, but it’s becoming more and more common, manufacturers are having a hard time keeping a unique visual signature (for their brand) as it was in the years 2005 to 2015 and even until the years 2018-2020.
The first hull has already been sold to an American customer, the release date is unknown for the moment.
The asking price will certainly be between $15 and $20 million USD depending on the options. As this megayacht will certainly be customized, the amount can easily exceed $20 million USD. It must be said that the Pershing quality is quite unique.
Let’s hope he will be present at the next boat show in Cannes.
Here is the description of the yacht provided by the manufacturer:
A new range of sports yachts combining elegance, incredible deck space and the signature Pershing thrill.
Sport utility yacht.
The Pershing way.
It’s a new aesthetic and emotional experience. A leap forward in the world of avant-garde yachting. This is where the full pleasure of the sea meets the unmistakable Pershing DNA. This is where the Dominant Species reaches a new evolutionary stage, to bring the Pershing thrill into a dimension that never existed before. Until we’ve done it.
You can follow the rules. Or you can change them. Synonymous with avant-garde yachting since 1985, Pershing is now ready to go further than ever before. The GTX Series doesn’t just represent a step change in terms of technology and innovative solutions but creates a whole new world.
Extreme contact. Extended spaces. Expanded pleasure.
The first axiom of the GTX Series is extreme contact with the water. Open spaces and flexible settings, extensive glazed surfaces, technology designed to make life enjoyable: the barriers melt away and the yacht becomes one with the world around her.
