The new Pershing 92...

Recent Launches

She's based on the same hull as the Pershing 90 that she replaces. We love Pershing's new 'white pearl’, which is as distinctive in a sea of other whites as it is subtle.

JULY 2010

The Pershing 92's ‘new-generation’ profile is certainly arresting. She's got the same twin-curve, full-length window treatment as the Pershing 72 and the subsequently intoduced 64 and 80. And the new for early 2011 Pershing 108, we hear, is getting the same treatment.
The obvious benchmark for the 92 is the model she replaces, the Pershing 90. On the face of it their specs are quite similar. Just under 24m (78ft 9in) long, close to 68 tonnes, twin MTU V16 2,450hp diesels with Arneson ASD 16L surface drives, and four guest cabins plus a ErnestoMeda galley and crew berths for three in two cabins. But beyond that there are some very significant differences. Aside from the obvious styling upgrade, the most striking is undoubtedly the colour, which will help distinguish the new Pershings. As the name suggests, ‘white pearl’ is a beautifully subtle shade of silvery off-white, with a shimmering, metallic lustre.
When comparing the new 92 with the 90 and the 80, the next most obvious difference is the sundeck. The 80 is a straightforward hardtop express with no top deck. The 90 had just a sunpad. But the 92 has a real sundeck, complete with flybridge helm position, although in profile you hardly notice it’s there.
Her top speed is 42 knots (48.4mph). The maximum cruising speed is 38 knots.
She was shown for the first time in October at Genoa ’10.
