The new Pershing Yacht Terrace was the magnificent setting for two days packed with exciting events dedicated to Pershing yacht owners
Passion and exclusiveness were the main ingredients of Sunset Thrills, the event celebrating the Pershing world, staged on the island of Ibiza on 29 and 30 June. Organized by Pershing in partnership with the luxury hotel 7Pines Resort in Ibiza, it gave all the brand’s yacht owners the unique opportunity to live that unmistakable thrill, with its mixture of adrenalin, coolness, and fun.
The stunning setting for the evening of Saturday, 29 June, was the new Pershing Yacht Terrace, where Alberto Galassi, CEO of Ferretti Group, and the owner of 7Pines Resort have officially opened Pershing season on the Balearic Islands. Perched on a cliff, with a spectacular view of the enchanting rocky island of Es Vedrà, the Terrace took everyone's breath away. Designed in June 2018, this is the first lounge in the world created by Pershing architects and designers reflecting the style and qualities that make the range unique. From sunset until late into the night, after an exclusive aperitif and dinner, over 400 guests were enchanted by a video mapping show, surrounded by a breathtaking view of the open sea and 10 Pershing yachts anchored in front of the 7Pines Resort.
The exclusive and glamorous night was followed by a day charged with passion and adrenalin. On Sunday, 30 June, from the first glimmer of dawn, the yacht owners participated in a host of activities, with racing, test sails and plenty of fun – in perfect Pershing style. From the majestic Pershing 108 to the sleek Pershing 5X, including the latest addition, the 8X, each yacht in Ibiza has become the symbol of the incredible passion shared by Pershing owners worldwide who love the sea and the bursts of adrenalin they get from their yachts acceleration and turning performances. At the end of the water-based activities, Sunset Thrills ended with a spectacular parade of all the yachts as they returned to the 7Pines Resort after sailing around the island of Es Vedrà.
