Avant-garde style and ferocious performance are the hallmarks of the Pershing marque, and, as Alex Smith reports from this year's Dusseldorf Boat Show, the Pershing 62 fails to disappoint on either front. Take a look for yourself in the video below.

The interior is a delight, according to Alex on the video. There is plenty of seating and the use of top quality materials creates a luxury feel. Out in the cockpit, there is a retractable, sliding hard top capable of protecting passengers and crew from the excesses of heat and sun in summer or spray at speed or sudden downpours of rain – in any season.

The patio doors are also given the Pershing treatment with a push-button control that retracts and the sliding glass vertically down below, leaving the entire aft aperture wide open.

Down below decks there are just three sleeping cabins, or there's the American version that has just two. But the success of the Pershing formula has nothing to do with squeezing every last bit of usefulness out of the space available. People buy these boats to whizz along at 48 knots in rare style and comfort – and the Pershing 62 looks unlikely to disappoint.
