This 45-knot 72-footer will now emabark on a tour of the Med

This piece of boating eye-candy is Pershing’s new 72, which was officially unveiled to the world yesterday in Milan.

The boat “was created with the aim of presenting a new philosophy for enjoying yachting and the sea”, the founder of Pershing, Tilli Antonellie, said.

Pershing now plans to tour the new boat round the Med, stopping in Croatia, Spain, Italy and Greece before taking it on the boat show circuit.

Some neat touches have been included in the 72-foot monster, including a glass partition between the cockpit and saloon that slides away into the floor and a tender garage that can be lowered into the water.

Driving the boat is twin 1823hp MTU diesels, which give the 72 a top speed of a whopping 45 knots.
