Pershing X8 the carbon fibre revolution. The umpteenth leap forward in Pershing style, each and every component designed to amaze, starting with the construction material. Lightweight, fast, hyper-performing, with the most spacious, welcoming spaces and a new propulsion system, the Pershing 8X is the dream and masterpiece of the “X Generation”.
The yacht’s “go-fast” exterior styling was created by the Ferretti Group’s in-house team in collaboration with yacht designer Fulvio De Simoni. A particularly distinctive design element is the 8X’s port “wing”, which artfully combines form and function. Gracefully sweeping out and over the walkaround, this unique, carbon-fiber structure incorporates the stairway to the flybridge from the aft deck. This is quite a departure from the stairs on the Pershing 9X, which are solidly integrated into the yacht’s superstructure. The tradeoff is it provides more space on the aft deck, allowing for a larger alfresco dining area
The sophisticated naturalness of the carbon fibre boosts Pershing’s sporty design and its most iconic elements such as the stunning side wings and the aerodynamic profile of the sun deck. The ingenious and scenic integration of the stairway leading to the sport flybridge lets an aesthetic signature evolve into a functional element, thus leaving more space in the cockpit.
The twin engines ensure speeds of 45 knots in the standard version and up to 48 knots in the optional configuration. Pershing 8X is equipped with the groundbreaking system that integrates propulsion control with the manoeuvring, navigation and monitoring systems, which is accessible to the pilot via large natural carbon panels and 24″ touchscreen monitors.
The unrivalled combination of quality and innovation creates spaces which are exceptional in terms of both aesthetics and functionality. With dual side access, the main deck ensures intimacy and privacy. The helm station is a masterpiece of design, technology and sportiness. The innovative Music Hull system allows music to be listened to underwater, with high audio quality.
