Pershing 5X barche a motore

As the first creature in the X Generation, the Pershing X is a 16.51 x 4.35 m coupé yacht designed by Fulvio De Simoni which fully reflects all the latest standards of the brand, including the side wings of the cockpit and four lateral windows on both sides. The cockpit and the saloon become a single open space when the balcony door is totally opened. Unconventional for a Pershing under 60 feet, the master cabin is full-beam while the Vip cabin is forward. Between them, the galley and the dinette (as an alternative, the owner can ask for an additional cabin or a crew cabin). The first yacht of the new Pershing X Series is a 50-foot. Designed with aggressive lines but extremely comfortable during the cruising, according to the style of the English shipyard.

The propulsion system is offered in two versions: twin Volvo Penta 725 hp engines (providing a cruising speed of 30 knots and a top speed of 36) or twin CAT 12.9 engines, each with 1,000hp, and Top System 75X surface drives ( giving a cruising speed of 41 knots and a maximum speed of approximately 45 knots). Moreover, the Easy Dock system significantly improves manoeuvrability.
