A need for speed: On board a Pershing 9X yacht for sale

11 May 2023 • Written by Georgia Tindale for Allied Marine

Everyone knows the Friday feeling — the one where you've answered your last email, shut down your laptop, and are already picturing the deliciously long weekend ahead. But if you're looking for that feeling in a yacht, you'll know you need something supremely comfortable, undeniably elegant and, most importantly, fast - fast enough to pack in all your weekend plans and still have time left over. 

The best yacht for the job is the Pershing 9X, and with a 2022 brokerage unit from the bestselling series currently offered for sale with Allied Marine's Cole Watkins in the US, we step on board and take a closer look at what makes this contemporary speed demon stand out from the crowd.

Sporty at the core

As befits any vessel bearing the legendary "Pershing" name, this Pershing 9X yacht can accurately be described as a seriously sporty creation – a maxi coupé open motor yacht of just over 28 metres which delivers a hair-raising top speed of 42 knots and cruises comfortably at 38 knots, thanks to the power provided by her twin 2638 HP MTU 16V 2000 M96L engines.

Italian style

Alongside delivering serious "oomph" where speed is concerned, this Pershing 9X is also bound to turn all manner of heads on the water, thanks to her eye-catching contemporary design. Built from aerodynamic and lightweight composite materials – based on carbon, vinyl ester resin and epoxy resin – her bold and sporty lines are highlighted by delicate arches, a predatory profile and a sleek, Anniversary Silver finish. Oozing with Italian style, this Pershing 9X features an open-air foredeck and sundeck area to keep guests connected to the ocean, whilst always remaining supremely comfortable and private. In particular, the sundeck offers the ideal hideaway from the everyday, thanks to the presence of a lounge seating area and a large sun pad.

Stepping inside, her interior decor can be characterised as elegant and sophisticated, making use of the highest quality materials throughout to ensure that she stands the test of time.

With the vessel showcasing numerous premium Italian brands through her design, her leather-upholstered ‘Interior in Motion’ helm station celebrates the partnership between Pershing and the celebrated Tolentino-based furniture maker Poltona Frau.

In terms of guest accommodation, this Pershing 9X yacht offers four beautifully-appointed staterooms, all of which are ensuite, comprising a master suite, one VIP cabin and two twins.

Comfort is key

Naturally, with such impressive speed credentials, the impact on those travelling on board must also be taken into account. Thankfully, this Pershing 9X yacht also delivers in spades where comfort is concerned.

Harnessing the latest technology in her build to promote both performance and comfort, this Pershing 9X offers performance at the top of her class. She runs quietly even at high speeds, and displays a notable lack of roll at anchor for a calm and pleasant cruising experience thanks to her zero-speed stabilisers (SeaKeeper SK9 gyro units).

Designed with easy island-hopping in mind and with a range of 380 nautical miles, her propulsion, navigation and monitoring systems are fully integrated, with her joysticks and surface propellers offering top-level maneuverability even in the tightest of spaces. Indeed, this Pershing 9X yacht’s shallow draft of 1.65 metres primes her for accessing shallow areas and cruising close to shorelines with ease.

Tomorrow’s yacht - available today

Combining the latest in high-end performance technology, a refined Italian design and superior onboard comfort, if it’s a thrill you’re after from your yachting experience, there is no doubt that this Pershing 9X yacht will deliver this – and so much more.
