Mondolfo-based shipyard Pershing has introduced the new 7X, which will join the Generation X range. This range of models will focus on four fundamental pillars: design, technology, performance, and use of ultra-lightweight materials.
The design is a Fulvio De Simoni creation, and combines sporty, bold and sleek lines shape combined with aesthetic and architectural innovations. The introduction of an integrated navigation and control interface, steer-by-wire controls and propulsion systems with latest generation automation, gives the owner considerable versatility.
The performance is the result not just of the efficiency of the hull-propulsion systems, but also of the use of ultra-lightweight materials – including carbon fibre – and of other cutting-edge solutions which enable the yachts to reach top performance targets while reducing consumption, but also increasing volumes and on-board comfort.
21.4 metres long with a beam of 5.32 metres, the Pershing 7X is equipped with twin MAN V12 diesel engines generating 1800 mhp each, combined with a Top System P85X surface drive transmission with surface propellers. The performance is at the top of its class: the yacht can reach a top speed of 50 knots and a cruising speed of 42 knots, with a maximum range of 300 nautical miles (preliminary data).
The exterior design adds an important aesthetic innovation to the typical stylistic features of Pershing, which include the impressive side wings.
On the two exterior bulwarks, precisely at the point where the wings sit, the air vents are contained in two openings in the body of the hull which widen into two side muscles, sporty features strongly reminiscent of the style of racing cars.
The aft central garage can fit a Williams 345 Sportjet tender, where the use of the hydraulically-operated platform typical of the Pershing models facilitates launching and towing. Up top, a sun deck can fit up to four people, while the forward area is fitted with a large seat. The cockpit is furnished with an L-shaped sofa with table, protected by the end portion of the superstructure.
The external areas of this model are particularly impressive: the forward area has a chaise longue facing the sea and a large sun deck which conceals a large peak of the same size underneath.
Space optimisation means that the owner can move around comfortably on board: the side gangways are wide enough to allow safe access to the forward area, and the passageway under the wing is equally generous considering the size of the yacht. All exterior areas can be protected by sun canopies.
The interiors are characterised by sleek surfaces, and the rooms are welcoming, simple and stylish at the same time, with harmonious balance and functionality.
