Visit the Mondolfo yards and “run” near the port of Fano to experience the excitement of a yacht of ten million euros
John Joseph “Black Jack” Pershing was an active US general during World War I, an absolute reference of many of his successors such as George Marshall, Dwight Eisenhower
and George Smith Patton. Together with George Washington, he was the only US military to reach the highest possible degree, that of General Armies.
Who knows if Tilli Antonelli, Fausto Filippetti and Giuliano Onofri inspired him when they founded the Shipyard of the Adriatic in 1981. True, there is only one Via J.J.
Pershing in Italy and is just outside Mondolfo, one of the most beautiful village in Italy in the Marche region, about 30 kilometers southwest of Pesaro. Here is one of
the 6 production centers of the Ferretti Group, owned by the Pershing luxury yacht brand since 1998. About 200 of the 1,500 workers of the second nautical group around
the world work here, owning seven well-known buyers such as the legendary Riva.
In via J.J. Pershing, on the third floor of the office building, one of the most successful works of architect Sandro Sartini, buyers and delegates go to confer with
architects and stylists to personalize their next jewelery.
In front of the precise Marche countryside, between a ravioli and a verdicchio, comfortable on sofas and armchairs Frau, one of the brands made in Italy such as
Lamborghini who can indulge in collaboration with Pershing, choose the characteristics and interior of the yachts that, from the moment of order , Will see the sea after
at least 4 months.
Eight yachts in the Pershing portfolio
Today, the Pershing portfolio includes a range of eight yachts with a pitch ranging from 54 to 140 feet (16-43 meters). Outstanding floating houses that take off with a
minimum of spending just under one million euros, both for the Pershing 5x, up to nearly 15 million euros for the largest, Pershing 108, to which in 2018 will follow the
All models are made in Mondolfo, except the Pershing 140, steel and aluminum jewel that will be made in Ancona, presented last year has already been booked. Watching
Pershing craftsmen at work from the third floor pulpit is an outstanding experience. In the sheds there is room for a unit of less than ten units, diligently inserted
into an orderly assembly chain and studied in the smallest details for maximum results within the expected times which has nothing to do with the dirty, noisy factory
concept And chaotic of any product for the mass market.
Every skilled worker deals with his hull portion: who the painting, who finishes it, who works on engines, who in the interior, in compressed but at the same time
rational and safe spaces. Between a brush stroke and the other, a drill and a recess check regularly the broom of those who keep the scaffold clean. The work of
electricians and carpenters, on the other hand, is silently monitored by engineers and architects who, with the projects in hand, have to keep the promises made in the
order of the order.
Exceptional experience, it was said, because it is still amazed by the capabilities of a team of a few dozen workers, as from a simple prefabricated fiberglass boat can
exit a 40-meter-long beater perfectly matched in architecture, engineering , In performance and finishing touches to make the happiness of billionaires and its follow-
From Mondolfo the boat is ready for testing in the waters of Fano, thanks to the on-site bathtub where you can already simulate floating and navigating reactions. And it
is at Fano that takes us to try a Pershing 62 that will soon take off, will reach Fort Lauderdale (Florida) and end up in the arms of some Wasp from the well-stocked
A turn, a curve and an eight
Are we in an iron barrel, or not? Those who take the rudder is a less well-identified sea wolf that resists little to low speed and soon launches into a couple of curves
and an eight. But the Pershing 62 responds docile, even in the presence of those bastard, short but tall baldnesses that suggest keeping the handrail.
Despite the sea, the Pershing 62 wipers remain at rest, a sign that the keel is well-structured not to be overwhelmed by the waves. But the best of the technology we are
looking for at the far end: the seakeeper system, a stabilizer, is definitely the most revolutionary invention of the last few years, indispensable to the most
likelihood of any water bike or any optional tender, Miele or leather Frau on the seats.
Stay wide, a sphere inserted in an interstate is also concerned with balancing the roll even in the presence of long and fastid waves
