The wait is over at Pershing and the first example of the new GTX range has finally gone to sea. It is the all-new Pershing GTX116, a sporty and elegant 35-meter whose pride, among many other things, is its more than 165 square meters of totally interconnected open areas. In short, a project that finally sees the light of day, offering us a glimpse the that synthesis of sport, elegance and volume announced to us by the shipyard.
Designed to combine the thrill of speed on the water with all the wellness and comfort possible, the new Pershing GTX116 is a design totally devoted to the pleasure of the on-board experience. Balanced in form and space, with interiors and exteriors that blend together, the yacht attempts to best marry a relaxed and comfortable philosophy with all the performance derived from the hull and the three hydrojet propulsion engines, capable of propelling its 150-ton displacement at over 35 knots.
Pershing GTX116 – Exterior
With a sleek and dynamic profile, Pershing’s new house yacht well recovers the brand’s character and DNA, maintaining a visibly sporty nature despite its abundant volumes, kept light by a particularly balanced design. Indeed, the volumes are cohesive, without clear distinctions, thanks to the play of lines created by the windows, which are thus able not only to illuminate the interiors but also to lighten the central body of the project.
In terms of outdoor spaces, there is no shortage of open areas, the epitome of the new Seascape concept, the creation of contiguous and connected areas that allow for continuous movement on the deck, for more than 165 square meters of open space. Starting from the stern, in fact, we find a huge 39-square-meter real beach club lined with teak and complete with an opening crowning, thus providing access to the beach area and the beach flush with the water.
But, to proceed further, toward the bow, via a wall staircase, one arrives at the flybridge, a 40-square-meter sundeck complete with convivial spaces, wet bar, lounge area, wheelhouse and, unfailingly, shading via carbon hard top.
Returning to the main deck and continuing to the bow, one per broadside, there are terraces cantilevered over the sea, while in the bow there is an additional relaxation area, complete with sofas and whirlpool. To top it all off, there is also a garage suitable to accommodate a tender of over 5 meters, a jet ski and all the necessary water toys.
Pershing GTX116 – Interior
Shifting the focus indoors, this 35-meter offers a total of 8 cabins and 8 toilets, 5 for guests and 3 for crew, respectively. In terms of care and livability, the interiors are bathed in light, provided by the large windows, while the decor is strictly designer, Made in Italy, of course. Needless to say, they are configured according to the taste and needs of the owner.
In terms of layout, the distinction first takes place between two levels: on the main deck, we find the living area, complete with lounge area, dining room, separate full galley and wheelhouse. On the lower deck, however, are the cabins, five for guests and three, forward and with separate access, for the crew.
In terms of configuration, we find a full-beam master stateroom towards the aft, complete with double vanity and everything needed to stow one’s belongings. Instead, guest cabins take their place in the center of the boat, two twin-bedded and two double. The latter also have access to private facilities. The three cabins reserved for the crew, on the other hand, take their place in the bow and boast, in addition to three en-suite bathrooms, a companionway with a galley and sleeping area.
In terms of propulsion, the GTX116 boasts two distinct engine options. In the standard case, three MAN V12 1800 engines are available, which can be increased to 2000 in the optional version. Propulsion is then provided by Kamewa waterjets, capable of taking the yacht to maximum speeds of 32.5 and 35.5 knots depending on the version. The estimated range is about 400 nautical miles, served by an impressive 14,500-liter fuel tank.
