The 74 was the first of the new breed of hardtop sports cruisers with a discreetly disguised hidden extra – a top deck. This introduced the concept of the ‘sport fly’, a sleek hardtop sports cruiser, but with almost as much deck area as a flybridge yacht. This top deck can be either a purely recreational space for lounging and sunbathing, or it can be fitted with a flybridge helm.
The beautifully modern, elegant interior of the Pershing 74 is enhanced by some very classy, chic leather touches, and furnishings styled by the celebrated Italian designer Poltrona Frau. Between the spacious aft cockpit and the very stylish saloon, a glass division slides away completely to create a seamless social area of the two spaces, all on one level. The 74 has 3 suites, 2 doubles and a twin, plus a crew cabin.View Gallery
Looking for all the world like a sleek, high performance hardtop sports cruiser, it is something of a surprise to discover that the Pershing 74 has a top deck above the main saloon, discreetly blended into her smooth top line profile. This 'sport fly' is a delightful lounging and sunbathing area or, if an owner wishes, it can be fitted with a full helm station to create a commanding outside driving position.View Gallery
You might suspect that the 'sport fly' top deck on the Pershing 74 would detract from the usual Pershing-style performance. But not a bit of it. The 74 performs like a classic Pershing, with twin surface drives and almost 4000hp on tap, she will reach close to 45 knots (50mph).
