The Best of the Best 2003: Production Yachts - Pershing 76

Most sport yachts include salons that are nestled within their hulls. However, the main salon of the $4,480,000 Pershing 76 is located on the upper deck, providing alfresco dining and relaxation in a sunny, open environment. An electronically operated hard top opens to allow even more sunshine into the salon, although the top can remain closed and the rear doors can be shut in less temperate conditions.

Belowdecks, elegant ceiling lamps and wall sconces light the full-beam master suite, which includes a 20-inch LCD TV, a stereo system, a pear wood closet, and a private bathroom. A VIP suite and two guest staterooms are also available for passenger use. Twin MTU diesels propel the Pershing to a maximum speed of 55 mph.
