New Pershing 9X Motor Yacht Sold
by Malcolm Maclean
A new Pershing 9X motor yacht has been sold by Sean Fenniman at Allied Marine.
Built on spec in GRP by Italian yard Pershing to a design by Fulvio De Simoni, she was delivered in 2019 as the sixth hull in the yard’s Pershing 9X series and is based on the same hull as the outgoing Pershing 92 series. Accommodation is for eight guests split between four cabins including a full-beam amidships master suite complete with walk-in wardrobe, along with two twin cabins and a VIP suite in the bow, all with full en suite facilities. Meanwhile, the crew quarters allow for a staff of up to three people.
Key changes from the Pershing 92 include extensive use of carbon fibre and an enlarged cockpit with a huge sunpad, however, the distinctive Pershing superstructure wings have been retained. The interior is decidedly modern with premium furnishings from the likes of Poltrona Frau and Antonio Luppi.
Ferretti Group describes the Pershing 9X as a fighter jet and she certainly has the power to back up that bold metaphor. Twin MTU 16V2000 M96L engines propel this fast planing yacht to a sporty top speed of 42 knots, while the cruising speed of 38 knots gives a range of 380 nautical miles, drawing on a total fuel capacity of 9,000 litres.
The asking price of the Pershing 9X has been withheld.
