These niggles can, and I am sure, will be cured and then this will be a boat that is close to perfect. Of course, perfection has its price and the Pershing 56 does not come cheap, but then quality never does. What matters is that she keeps the sports-car driver happy while allowing everyone else to enjoy the ride. I've placed the Pershing 56 at the top of my wish list, with my only caveat being that it may be replaced when Pershing introduces its 115, with a gas turbine engine, later this year. In the meantime, this 56 is a boat that creates a defining moment in fast-boat design, if not in your life.
