Often imitated but never equalled, Pershings are the undisputed masters of high performance cruising. Top speed for a typical performance sports cruiser is around 35 knots or 65 km/h. Typical top speed for a Pershing is 45 knots, that’s over 80 km/h. It is tempting to describe Pershings as ‘the Ferraris of the sea’, and there are certainly many similarities: both are exceptionally fast, beautifully designed, very glamorous and Italian. But when it comes to creature comforts, a Ferrari is no match for the elegant, tasteful and very classy designer luxury of a Pershing.
