The 24.97 metre motor yacht Lady First built in GRP by Italian yard Pershing to a design by Fulvio De Simoni, Lady First was delivered in 2015 as a Pershing 82’ model. Accommodation is for eight guests in four cabins consisting of a master suite, VIP suite and two twins, all with entertainment centres, satellite television screens and en-suite bathroom facilities. In addition, there are quarters for three crew.
Wraparound glazing allows daylight to flood into the saloon, which comes with three helm chairs forward, while aft the lounge area has U-shaped seating on leather settees, a bar and an entertainment center including a large television on a rise and fall mechanism.
The fly bridge has a further three helm chairs, sun loungers and a mini bar while on the foredeck is a very private space with sun pads and a built-in al fresco dining area, all sheltered when necessary by a retractable Bimini top.
As with all Pershing models, Lady First is an exceptionally speedy yacht. Two 2435 hp MTU diesel engines driving Rolla surface piercing propellers give her a heady cruising speed of 40 knots topping out at 45 knots.
