Pershing GTX80, the second model in the GTX range

Share:
Pershing GTX80

Characterised by seamless connections between the internal and external spaces, this new GTX80 design follows in the wake of the GTX range’s flagship, launched in spring 2023, and reprises the philosophy based on comfort and liveability, along with extreme sportiness encoded in Pershing’s DNA.

The result of collaboration between the Ferretti Group Product Strategy Committee led by Piero Ferrari, the design firm headed by Vallicelli Design, and the Group’s Engineering Department, the hull was built at the Ferretti Group Plug and Mould facility, bringing together advanced technologies and Pershing’s signature craftsmanship.

At around 24 metres long and 5.80 metres in the beam, this yacht has two decks and a sportbridge and can accommodate up to 8 guests thanks to the new four-cabin layout. There is also a cabin with two beds for the crew.

EXTERIOR DESIGN AND MAIN FEATURES

Pershing GTX80 is the result of an in-depth study of proportions in which the external lines show a refined volumetric equilibrium between superstructure and hull, giving the model an architectural harmony not so typical for sports motor yachts of this size.

The exterior lines in this new design are characterised by the Pershing brand’s signature stylistic elements. One example of this combination is the profile of the hull, which has a near vertical bow and a continuous, slightly convex sheer-line.

In another feature, the bulwarks in the bow section have been lightened by a longitudinal slot, while those in the stern have a dual function, both incorporating the winches and converting into lateral terraces that swing down to provide even more contact with the water.

The stern platform has three different positions, making it an extremely important feature of the boat.

It can be left in the default position, or raised using the dual linear lift function so that it extends and integrates the aft living area, together with the lateral terraces when open. It can also be used to launch the tenders.

The sundeck is very spacious (23 m2) but at the same time guarantees internal space of gran turismo proportions.

This effect is partly due to the sleekly dynamic arch-shaped deckhouse and the carbon fabric hard-top – the real novelty of this model and an optional – which offers the perfect way to lighten up the superstructure.

INTERIOR DESIGN AND LAYOUT

The new Pershing GTX80 brings owner and guests even closer to the sea, not least thanks to the layout of the main deck saloon, where the configuration of the exterior glazing – which extends below the lateral walkways – ensures seamless visual contact with the water.

Still on the main deck, the interior volumes are obtained with a partially full-beam saloon, offering an innovative approach to the decor, designed for conviviality and informal use.

Another new development in this area is the layout of the open galley-bar, which is fully integrated into the lounge setting and opens out onto the cockpit, acting as the main hub connecting and enhancing the painstaking interior design work on the main deck.

Sculptural architecture is a feature of all Pershing GTX80’s interiors, showcasing seamless interconnection between the lounge and the cockpit, which is also illuminated by lighting integrated in the ceiling.

The customised interior decoration is epitomised by the master cabin, which is clad from top to bottom in cloud-effect sky blue leather panelling, applied with different spacings and widths, in the ultimate expression of the style concept underpinning this new project.

The spacious cabins guarantee maximum privacy for guests with respect to the crew quarters, which are accessed from the outdoor cockpit area through a door under the staircase leading up to the flybridge, hiding it from view.

In perfect Pershing style, this new project speaks the language of technology, not only in terms of the engineering, but also as a stylistic hallmark enhanced by the materials chosen for this extremely comfortable environment.

The various settings use materials featuring tones that are evocative of steel, water and electricity.

The raised helm station in the bow has 360-degree visibility, thanks in part to the huge windshield with no central pillar and the extensive use of continuous glazing. A sunroof above the windshield can be opened for natural ventilation.

PROPULSION AND TECHNOLOGY

Pershing GTX80 is a planing boat equipped with three 1,000 mhp VOLVO PENTA D13 IPS1350 engines that reaches a top speed of 34 knots (preliminary data) and a cruising speed of 28 knots.

The yacht will have CE Class A certification, the safest for boats under 24 m.
