At the Cannes Yachting Festival 2021, Pershing has unveiled the new Pershing 6X that features a sleek, streamlined design with a highly aerodynamic profile, offers an incredible 48-knot top speed, and is equipped with the technological innovations, the system that integrates propulsion control with the maneuvering, navigation and monitoring systems to ensure maximum ease of operation. Measuring about 62 ft long and about 16 ft wide, the yacht is the result of collaboration between 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 attracts attention with her large outdoor areas featuring plenty of space for socializing. The garage in the stern can accommodate a Williams Turbojet 325 tender, with the hydraulically operated swim platform helping launch and recovery operations. There is a generously sized sun pad with an ergonomic backrest framed by a spoiler on the aft side. It can be extended by folding down the backrest of the forward seat. Opposite, the dining area is furnished with an L-shaped sofa seating up to eight people and a sliding and extending low table in soft-touch carbon fiber, with a top that is also available in soft-touch teak. The cockpit features a bar unit on the starboard side with a recessed sink and, on request, a grill and icemaker or fridge. Side walkways lead to the bow area, which also features a generously sized sun pad and a separate chaise longue.
The main lounge can be accessed from the cockpit through a sliding door that forms part of a large glazed surface. There are extensive side windows and a large sunroof that can be opened above the starboard helm station.
On the port side, a C-shaped sofa is positioned around an extending table for up to six guests. Opposite are the TV cabinet and storage compartments. On the port side of the helm station, a central stairway leads to the lower deck.
The first Pershing 6X unit has a layout with three cabins – master, VIP forward and guest starboard – and three bathrooms with separate showers. The version for the American market has two cabins – master and VIP – with a living space replacing the guest cabin. The galley on the left side of the hull features a ceiling window and a large porthole that can be opened. On the starboard side is the guest cabin, with a bathroom.
The owner’s area is a full-beam suite complete with the bathroom, split into three areas that extend across the entire width of the cabin, from which it is separated by two matt white sliding doors. The VIP cabin is located in the bow, with the bed skewed at 45° to the starboard side.
Pershing 6X is powered by a pair of 1,550 mhp MAN V12 engines, the top speed is almost 48 knots and the cruising speed about 42 knots. The yacht is fitted with a unique advanced interface that integrates propulsion management with the maneuvering, navigation and onboard monitoring systems. This technology is the result of the combined expertise of Top System, Onyx and Xenta, which developed the Easy Set propulsion management system and the steer-by-wire hydroelectric steering system, alongside Simrad Command navigation and monitoring systems. The DPS (Dynamic Positioning System) keeps the boat steady in the same position even in strong winds or currents. On request, a gyroscopic stabilization system can be placed to increase comfort at anchor.
