Stylish Italian superyacht builder Pershing has launched a new hull in its flagship 115' range with massive power to match its good looks. The yacht is fitted with twin diesel MTUs delivering a total of 7,400 hp together with the applied thrust of two Rolls-Royce water-jet propellers - plus an additional $3.5 million Vericor TF50 gas turbine, typically used in aeronautics, producing an additional 5,100 hp for a total top speed of 52 knots. The 12,500 hp beauty's four cabins include an owner's suite and three guest cabins accomodating a total of nine people, while three crew cabins offer five bunks. The cockpit with a vast covered area made possible by the use of lateral carbon fiber fittings is the starring attraction with a teak table featuring seating for ten, a fully equipped bar, a large solarium and built in plasma TV. The new model also features a touchscreen audio visual system that also controls the lighting, curtains, air conditioning and closed-circuit video camera system.
