Currently the fastest model in the Pershing fleet – and one of their fastest ever – the 82 VHP has a phenomenal top speed of 50 knots – that’s 57mph or 91kph. But that doesn’t mean she’s any less of a luxury yacht, she is still a supremely comfortable designer dream in which to enjoy cruising in considerable style.
Slide away the glazed doors at the rear of the main saloon, and you have the most sensational indoor/outdoor recreation or entertaining space, right through from helm to transom, all on one level, and with a fabulous outlook in every direction. Pershing styling and Italian designer furniture create the ultimate super-cool chic environment. There are two double suites and two twins, plus accommodation for 3 crew.View Gallery
Discreetly hidden within the sleek profile of the 82 VHP is an upper deck – not just a big, spacious sundeck, but also with the option of an upper helm to give a second driving position. Access is via a discretely hidden fold-down carbon fibre staircase in the aft cockpit and an automated hatch. The aft cockpit itself is a delightful area for lounging, dining or sunbathing, and there's the usual massive Pershing bathing platform at the stern.View Gallery
When all around are travelling at 30-40 knots, there is a certain pleasure in opening the throttles on your Pershing 82 VHP and leaving them all behind as you head off over the horizon at 50 knots! This is one incredible motor yacht, with an almost unbelievable performance, delivered by twin 2638hp MTUs and a pair of Pershing's trademark surface drives – in this case Top System from ZF. These come with the option of an Autotrim system which automatically optimises trim, performance and efficiency at any speed.
