Pershing revealed the compact Pershing 6X yacht which is packed with the best of the brand’s leading-edge technology. The 18.94 meters (about 62 ft) long and 4.80 meters (about 16 ft) vessel is created in collaboration with Ferretti Group’s Product Strategy Committee led by Mr. Piero Ferrari, the design firm headed by Fulvio De Simoni, and the Group’s Engineering Department.
Pershing 6X is characterized by a highly aerodynamic profile and large glazed surfaces in the hull. The yacht includes new style features that reflect Pershing’s approach to design, further improving functional and comfort-related design goals without compromising on outstanding performance. They include the new styling of the big aft sun pad, the carbon and teak table in the cockpit dining area, and the chaise longue with a reclining backrest positioned forward.
The helm station on the main deck is made up of a dashboard with two 19-inch monitors, carbon fiber control panels, and an electro-hydraulic steering system. Also available is an innovative joystick coupled to the surface drive with various advanced operating modes, including ‘easy handling’ for ground-breaking maneuverability in ports and confined waters. A large sunroof opens over the dashboard to take cruising enjoyment to the next level.
The first Pershing 6X unit features a layout with three cabins – owner, forward VIP and starboard guest – and three bathrooms with separate shower. The guest bathroom, which can be entered both from the cabin and the lobby on the mezzanine, doubles as day toilet. On the left side of the hull is the galley. The version for the American market has two cabins – owner and VIP – with a living space replacing the guest cabin. Both versions have a crew cabin with a single bed and integrated bathroom. It can be entered from the cockpit. Among the other new features are new rectangular portholes that look even more like real windows.
Powered by a pair of 1,550 mhp MAN V12 1550 engines, Pershing 6X offers a top speed of almost 48 knots and a cruising speed of about 42 knots.
