Innovative streamlining, sporting spirit, immense versatility and unlimited elegance. The Pershing 50 is an open yacht that has been hugely successful right from its unveiling and won numerous major awards, including the Vela e Motore Boat of the Year trophy in 2003, the European Yacht Trophies 2004 presented at Cannes by the Yachts Magazine France and the Best Boat on Display at the Shanghai International Boat Show in 2005. The craft has become the shipyard s Best Selling Model and continues to be applauded by sector and market experts. This level of popularity has now been enhanced by the addition of a new Shaft Drive version and the carefully balanced combination of a distinctive and high impact deck design, top performance and superb onboard liveability, thanks to the boat's high ceilings. In short, this yacht returns to the authentic concept of the open cruiser as well as comfortably reaching speeds of 45 knots.
