History of Pershing

Italian brand Pershing was born in 1985. In the same year, mobile phones, the Internet and the film «Back to the Future» came out. It was an era of dreamers and talented inventors. It is no coincidence that it was in 1985 that experienced yachtsmen and entrepreneurs Tilli Antonelli, Fausto Filippetti and Giuliano Onori presented the new yacht they had invented together with naval architect Fulvio De Simoni Pershing 45. This was an unusual model for that time, a high-speed outdoor boat yet as comfortable and spacious as a normal motor yacht. The brand, like the ballistic missile of the same name, got the name of American General John Pershing.

The model led to a revolution in the market and helped raise the many futile attempts to copy it. The new yacht quickly gained popularity and entered the market of other countries. In 1998 the brand joined the Ferretti Group, gaining more opportunities for further growth. The number of models and sizes of Pershing yachts has increased significantly. The shipyard keeps collaborating with Fulvio De Simoni, who continues to create futuristic designs for the brand.

Current status

The company still forms part of the Ferretti Group.

Today these yachts are built in Mondolfo - the production area of the complex occupies 53 thousand square meters. The company has dealers and service centres all over the world.

Pershing's model range

The brand creates semi-custom and custom high-speed sports yachts and superyachts in composite and aluminium hulls 50-170 feet long.

Features of Pershing Yachts

«Those who drive Pershing, we call the pilots by analogy with the pilots of fighters or racing supercars», says Alberto Galassi, General Manager of Ferretti Group. The yachts have unique propulsion systems, including partially submerged propellers and water jets.


Even Pershing superyachts are capable of speeds up to 40-50 knots: for example, the «base» speed of Pershing 115 with its 7400 hp engines was already 38 knots, but the installation of aircraft turbines allowed the yacht to increase speed up to 52 knots.
