Pershing was founded in 1981 to create high-performance luxury yachts. The founders, Tilli Antonelli, Fausto Filippetti and Giuliano Onori, worked with luxury yacht designer Fulvio De Simone to create their first model, the Pershing 45.
The company is named after the Pershing missile, and with its output of powerful, luxury yachts, we can easily say it has lived up to its namesake. Pershing was acquired by the Ferretti Group in 1998. The company has maintained its expertise by specializing in building fast performance yachts.
