The Pershing 72 is capable of 45 knots top speed when the high performance, deep vee hull, twin MTU 1823 hp engines and Arneson surface-piercing drives combine in full symphony. At dockside with mooring lines attached, the 72 conveys the impression of power and poise, and quite simply looks like it’s doing a hundred miles an hour standing still.
With the salon doors and the sunroof closed, the 72 is also incredibly quiet. It adds to the boat’s stealthy feel. Solid construction includes molded stringers and bulkheads and a hull-to-deck joint sealed around the perimeter. The centrally positioned helm pod has a fighter-jet-like feel and is finished in brown upholstery and carbon-fiber panels, which should kill glare nicely. Flat-screen LED panels monitor engine functions and drive and tab trim position.
