Pershing History


It was 1985 when Tilli Antonelli, Fausto Filippetti and Giuliano Onori unveiled a new yacht, designed by Fulvio De Simoni that had never been seen before.  The Pershing 45 was as fast as a powerboat, yet as comfortable and spacious as a motoryacht and like every epoch-making success story, it was the beginning of a true revolution that inspired many vain attempts to reproduce it.

The company broadened its international horizons in the early nineties and ventured into other Mediterranean countries, the United States as well as the Far East.

In 1998, Pershing S.p.A joined the Ferretti Group, thus laying the foundations for tremendous growth that led to a continuous increase in yacht production and success.

The Weichai group became the majority shareholder of the Ferretti Group in 2012. The financial strength, know-how and strategic vision of the Chinese giant gave Pershing the opportunity to make its umpteenth significant improvement by guaranteeing long-term resources and strategies.

Today, the result of Pershing is crystal clear to the world: rising sales and the launch of stunning new models under the aegis of state-of-the-art technology and stylistic innovation that remains unsurpassed.
