Yacht Description
Yacht Description Motor yacht Le Caprice IV is a 108' (33m) luxury sport vessel, constructed by the Italian builder Pershing S.p.a. and launched in 2011. Le Caprice IV superyacht´s naval architect is Pershing´s in-house team, while her beautiful exterior is by world-renowned Fulvio de Simoni from Ital Projects. She features a versatile layout, aggressive profile, super-structure windows, the latest on-board innovative technology as well as unparalleled performance. Three generous guest cabins, a TV room (possible to convert to 4th owner party cabin), and three crew cabins can be found on board Pershing 108 super yacht Le Caprice IV. The completely personalized under deck layout offers a spacious VIP cabin at the bow, a guest cabin, a TV or family room and a full beam master cabin amidships. The key element of the yacht´s elegant interior is the natural light in the architecture of the hall, coming through the wide opening of the lateral windows. The disappearing aft bulkhead opens the salon and aft deck to one another creating a freeflowing entryway area. Upon entering the main salon, towards the aft there is a dining table with a black python leather top and a large sofa, both custom made by Fendi Club House, facing a cabinet containing a 52” TV, an elegant coffee table and two honey-colored leather ottomans. This great area opens to the aft deck entertainment area via a disappearing aft glass bulkhead. The bridge consists of three comfortable, adjustable central pilot seats produced in collaboration with Poltrona Frau and Besenzoni. The steering console is designed with the latest navigation and communication technology, including a complete Furuno system displayed on 18" masters screens. The area below deck of the Pershing 108 Le Caprice IV superyacht can be accessed via a wide and comfortable staircase leading down from the pilot seats to a refined and elegant environment embellished with the Poltrona Frau leather that enriches the bed frames, furniture tops and wall TVs, giving the environment a very cozy and sophisticated style. The master cabin is completely personalized and the Fendi Casa leather has been used here as well. Beginning in the bow, the spacious and perfectly square VIP cabin offers wide and livable living space, equipped with an ample head giving guests a high degree of comfort. The guest cabin to port, with twin beds and en suite bathroom, is a great step forward in terms of on board versatility. In fact, the beds were designed to flank so as to form a king size bed or to be used as two single beds. Instead of the starboard cabin on the right, as in the standard layout of the P108’, there is a more user-friendly TV room, also known as the family room, with a large practical convertible sofa bed, customized with the fabric of the new Armani Casa collection and placed facing the large TV screen.  The key feature of the master cabin on the Le Caprice IV yacht is the suggestiveness of the natural light coming from the large lateral windows. The play of light and the colors are emphasized by the black Fendi leather that embellishes furniture tops, the headboard and the canopy. To complete this area there is another sofa bed with Armani Casa textiles, designed by Milano Bedding. Moreover, in the suite there is a large wardrobe, a very modern fully-equipped business area and a fridge-bar. At the stern, accessible from inside as well as from the outside of the yacht, is an area that has been equipped to accommodate the crew. It is made up of three cabins with bathrooms, a laundry room and a dinette combined with the kitchen. The incredibly spacious sun deck has a retractable steering console, a large C-shaped sofa with a table that can be lowered to seating level and four folding chaise lounges that turn into comfortable ergonomic seats, making this an independent and functional area that can be best enjoyed in moments of relaxation on board. The large cockpit can be used both during the day and in the evening; a spacious covered area, equipped with a sofa and a table that can host up to 10 people, with an elegant crystal top with a steel base, as well as 5 modern chairs. A large aft hangar with a folding bridge allows for the stowing of a 5m yacht tender. There is also a second hangar that can contain water toys as well as their davit launch. Built in composite, the Pershing luxury yacht Le Caprice IV is run by three MTU 16V 2000 M94 diesels, reaching an impressive top speed of 40 knots and comfortably cruising at 30 knots. Le Caprice IV boasts a beam of 22ft and a 6-foot draft.

Audio Visual Systems
The audiovisual system onboard Le Caprice IV is a custom designed system, which was designed and installed by Welch Services Group in the UK. The system is controlled using an AMX control system, which was designed and installed by Integrated System Control in the UK. The system is based on a central server system, which distributes both audio and video around the yacht to all areas. There are two main racks, one in the family room area and one underneath the bridge. In addition, each room / area has its own mini rack containing the amplifies, etc. for that area. The AMX programming allow for any number of configurations depending on what feeds are required in which location. It also allows each area to use any other areas equipment in case of failure, e.g. Crew area satellite box can be switched to the master cabin by a press of a button. Each area has its own AMX panel or remote which can be substituted for control from an IPAD. The AMX control panels are programmed to not only control the A/C system onboard, but also have full control of the air conditioning, lighting, blinds, etc. The lighting system has been programmed with several preset scenes for each area. The AMX system is integrated into the bilge and fire alarm system. If either of these alarms is sounded, the A/V system is shut down and the touch panel screens change to show the alarm, the A/V becomes inoperative until the alarm is reset. As with all automatic systems, there are also physical buttons in each area for lighting, A/C, blinds, etc. The following specifications are installed in each area of the boat Main Salon: 50” Panasonic plasma mounted on electric lift in port side furniture Sonance FS22 iPort iPod dock Rotel RSX-1550 amplifier and surround sound processor Bowers & Wilkins In-ceiling speakers Bowers & Wilkins freestanding sub-woofers AMX MVP5200 touch screen with in wall dock Dining Room: Linn room amplifier Bowers & Wilkin in-ceiling speakers AMX Mio R4 wireless remote control Aft Deck: Bowers & Wilkins in-ceiling speakers Linn room amplifier Sun Deck: Bowers & Wilkins speakers Forward Seating area Bowers & Wilkins speakers Master Suite: 42’ JVC LED LCD TV Sonance FS22 iPort iPod Dock Linn room amplifier Bowers & Wilkins in-ceiling speakers AMX MVP5200 touch screen with in wall dock AMX Mio R4 wireless remote control Master En-Suite: Bowers & Wilkins in-ceiling stereo speaker VIP Cabin: 32” JVC LED LCD TV Sonance FS22 iPort iPod Dock Linn room amplifier Bowers & Wilkins in-ceiling speakers AMX MVP5200 touch screen with table top dock VIP Cabin En-Suite Bowers & Wilkins in-ceiling stereo speaker Guest Cabin: 32” JVC LED LCD TV Sonance FS22 iPort iPod Dock Linn room amplifier Bower & Wilkins in-ceiling speakers AMX MVP5200 touch screen with table top dock Guest Cabin En-Suite Bowers & Wilkins in-ceiling stereo speaker Family Room: 42” JVC LED LCD TV Sonance FS22 iPort iPod Dock Linn room amplifier Bower & Wilkins in-ceiling speakers Le Caprice IV AMX Mio R4 wireless remote control Crew Mess: 22” LG LCD TV Sonance FS22 iPort iPod Dock Linn room amplifier Bower & Wilkins in-ceiling speakers AMX MVP5200 touch screen with table top dock Crew Cabins: 17” LG LCD TV Headphone Jack in wall Captain Cabin 19” JVC LED LCD TV Sonance FS22 iPort iPod Dock Linn room amplifier Bower & Wilkins in-ceiling speakers AMX MVP5200 touch screen with table top dock Located within the main racks are the following equipment Bridge Rack: 6 x Direct TV Satellite decoders AMX controllers Main Rack: 1 x Kaleidescape 1U Media Server 2 x Kaleidescape 2TB Hard Drives 1 x Kaleidescape 1080p Movie Player with in-built DVD ripper 3 x Kaleidescape 1080p Mini Player 1 x Kaleidescape 4 zone Music Player 1 x Sky + HD Satellite decoders AMX 3101 NetLinx Integrated Controller AMX 3100 NetLinx Integrated Controller Netgear Gigabit switch 2 Cat5e UTP patch panels Cisco Aironet WAP 12 x HD Fury HDMI to component converters 4 x Lindy Composite to Component converts AMX Optima Autopatch AMX Modula Autopatch 5 Kramer audio converters 12 x Extron Component Video Transmitter (Vide over Fiber) 12 x Extron Component Video Receiver (Vide over Fiber) Buffalo Linkstation 1TB Hard Drive GlobeWireless 3G Modem Rotel FM/AM/Internet Radio tuner Onboard Network: The yacht has an onboard Wi-Fi network, which is served by various access points around the vessel.

Remarks
It is rare that a large, nearly new Pershing like Le Caprice IV comes to market. Built by a four (4) time Pershing owner to include the very best of everything, Le Caprice IV offers a buying opportunity for a turn key 108' Pershing. Le Caprice IV is the only pre-owned Pershing 108 available for sale made even more unique by her MCA compliant build. The Le Caprice IV has never been chartered but was built with that option in mind. She is offered for the first time by an earnest, market aware seller. Le Caprice IV is a VAT paid vessel.  Le Caprice IV is better than new having been maintained and upgraded by a diligent captain and crew.
