Pershing 40  

The Pershing 40 was and still is a perfect med boat. Plenty of sunbathing forwards and aft, sociable cockpit, great shade systems, coupled with a robust shaft drive system and good mechanical Caterpillar engines. Simple to maintain, systems you can get at and lots of boat for the money. This good example has had a refit in 2015 including new blue paint work.

Principal Features

Twin Caterpillars on shafts                                 Hydraulic cockpit table

Bow thruster                                                         Excellent bimini system

Large bathing platform                                        Hydraulic passerelle

Having had the refit in 2015 the boat has been hardly used and is now very seriously for sale so all offers are encouraged.
