Designer Missile

    The Pershing 64, launched recently in Milan, is the latest nautical fashion statement from an Italian builder known for introducing bold designs to the performance boating segment. The express yacht, with curvaceous hardtop, reaches 46 knots with its twin 1550-hp MAN engines and Arneson ASD 14L drives. Its more notable assets extend beyond the sleek hull and respectable top speed into the refined interior, where Pershing has given al fresco a new meaning. The long side windows infuse the spacious saloon with natural light, and the panel of rear windows opens electrically, turning interior and exterior into a single open-air lounge.

    Pershing partnered with Poltrona Frau, the Italian leather furniture maker, to custom-design much of the interior. All seating and leather details, wall and ceiling panels have been exclusively designed for the 64. The designers took great care to match interior colors such as ivory white, heritage black, and chocolate brown to exude an understated elegance. Other noteworthy interior features: A full-beam master suite, with an oversized window in the hull sides, and two large cabins, each with en suite bathrooms and showers, all using the same color scheme as the topsides (www.pershing-yacht.com).
