First Pershing GTX80 launched

The first Pershing GTX80 has been launched, the result of a collaboration between the Ferretti Group Product Strategy Committee led by Piero Ferrari, design studio Vallicelli Design and the Group’s Engineering Department.

The Pershing GTX80 is around 24m long and 5.8m in the beam, has two decks, plus a sportbridge, and can accommodate up to eight guests in a new four-cabin layout.

There is also a cabin with two beds for crew.

The exterior styling features a number of choices: designed without stanchions, it points up the near vertical bow and the continuous, slightly convex sheer-line.

In the bow section, the bulwarks have been lightened by a longitudinal slot, while those in the stern have a dual function – incorporating the winches and converting into lateral terraces that swing down.

This is the first time a solution like this has been adopted on a Pershing model with the aim of establishing closer contact with the water.

The stern platform has three different positions – it can be left in the default position, raised using the dual linear lift so that it’s flush with the beach area, extending and integrating the aft living space in conjunction with the lateral terraces when open, and also used for launching tenders.

Aft of the helm station – fitted with three 24in screens – is a living area containing a corner sofa, a dining area and an integrated galley/bar in spaces directly overlooking the cockpit.

The hard-top available for the sundeck is made of carbon fibre for performance and aesthetic appearance.

The Pershing GTX80 is equipped with three 1,000mhp Volvo Penta D13 IPS1350 engines, has a top speed of 34 knots (preliminary data) and a cruising speed of 28 knots.
