The Pershing 140’s concept and renderings debuted at the 2015 Monaco Yacht Show.

The 140-footer is the first aluminum superyacht in the history of the company and is expected to debut in 2018.

“Last July we showed the owners that took part in Pershing’s 30th-anniversary celebrations in Palma de Majorca the first renderings of the new yacht, and their reaction was exactly like mine is every time I look at the pictures of this new amazing flagship: a shudder of excitement. What we call ‘thrill’ within the company that only Pershing is able to give,” Ferretti Group CEO Alberto Galassi said in a statement.

“The reaction of the media during the press conference we held in Monaco was the same,” Galassi said. “This is why I can't wait for this incredible vessel to be built: I want to see it growing month after month. I am sure the Pershing 140 will be the greatest thrill ever in Pershing's history."

The design is the result of cooperation among Ferretti Group’s product strategy committee, its engineering department and architect Fulvio De Simon.

It will be the first Pershing yacht built at the group’s Ancona boatyard, which specializes in steel and aluminum superyachts and megayachts of more than 131 feet.
