Pershing Yachts launched the third Pershing 108 at the Marina dei Cesari in Fano, Italy.

Interior furnishings and non-structural decor will be completed in the coming weeks on the three-engine boat. The interior of the new maxi yacht was customized by the owner, who was assisted by the Ferretti Group’s architects and designers.

At the same time, technical testing will be carried out on the new vessel and its systems, and all of the control and infotainment software will be checked, in addition to the performance trials. After it is delivered to its European owner, the new Pershing 108 will be ready to explore the waters of the Mediterranean.

In the shipyard version, the Pershing 108 has three MTU 2638 mHp (1939 kW) 16V 2000 M 94 L diesel engines. Because it has three surface propellers, it may achieve a top speed of more than 42 knots.

The company said the Pershing 108 can manage high travel ranges, exceeding 1,000 miles at 10 knots and with limited consumption at those speeds. With only the central engine running, the yacht can be very quiet at low speeds.
