When an iconic brand such as Pershing sets out to build its flagship model the end result expected will be nothing less than a masterpiece. The brand’s new flagship marks its entry into a new design and manufacturing era. Craftsmanship and expertise, coupled with a maniacal focus on innovative design, technology and aesthetics, has officially marked the brand’s 1st entry into the superyacht sector: it is the launch of Pershing 140, the brand’s new flagship and the first Pershing to be manufactured in aluminium. The WSB team take an exciting look at this milestone arrival from Pershing Yachts.
Pershing yachts continue to push boundaries in yacht design. Like its predecessor 9X, the all-new 8X is made of the same material that the most advanced nautical craft are made of; carbon fibre. This material not only means lighter weight, greater speed, and lower fuel consumption but also more volume due to the ability to design larger, more comfortable spaces. The on-board comfort is extraordinary, thanks to the many benefits offered by the new system that integrates propulsion control with the manoeuvring, navigation, and monitoring systems. With the new 8X, “piloting” a Pershing, even at high speeds and without the support of the captain, is fun and accessible for all would-be owners. The WSB team take a closer look at the 8x high tech craft.
The distinctive lines of a Ferretti Yacht have been a celebration of Italian yacht design since 1968. The Ferretti 720 reiterates that celebration in the unprecedented experience of luxury, comfort, and quality, the result of meticulous attention to design detail. The 720 project is an eclectic and successful combination of modern technology that has inspired sleek captivating looks and clever interior features. The WSB team take a closer look at this soon to be ready new 720.
Welcome to style, comfort, class, performance, brightness, and open lounge areas, imagine these features at the very height of excellence and you will have what Ferretti Yachts suggest as the 450.
The new Ferretti Yachts 700 is indeed the evolution of one of the greatest recent successes for Ferretti Group’s historical brand. The sports yacht, arrived in style at it’s world première during the Cannes Yachting Festival 2015, creating quite a buzz. The WSB team welcome the new year with a closer look at the new gem of the Ferretti flybridge range.
Ferretti Custom Line, a brand of the Ferretti Group specialising in the production of fibreglass planing and semi-displacement maxi yachts between 28 and 38 metres in length, is introducing the Custom Line 108’. The new project, which is part of the planing line, will make its debut this summer and is the heir of its successful 100-foot predecessor, which was largely appreciated all over the world, as proven by the 14 models sold in only three years.
The 2014 edition of the Cannes Yachting Festival, which marked the beginning of the new international nautical season, was the perfect stage to announce the next, enthralling chapter of a 45-year business history. It was there, indeed, that Ferretti Yachts presented the project of the Ferretti Yachts 550, a very important boat that will help the brand and the Ferretti Group as a whole to achieve the growth objectives they are currently pursuing.
The spacious and comfort of a great Ferretti yacht ensured by an overall-length of more than 26 metres, in spite of a hull below 24 metres: this is one of the great strengths of the new Ferretti 870, presented as a worldwide preview at the 35th Festival de la Plaisance in Cannes. Available in the standard roll-bar version or with an optional hard top, depending on the owners taste, this new sports yacht has single-handedly renovated the large-yacht range of the historical Ferretti Group‘s brand. The WSB team go behind the sleek lines of this new addition to the Ferretti Flybridge range and takes a closer look.
