by Malcolm Maclean
The 25.55 metre motor yacht Rocket has been listed for sale by Kristofer Westermark at Ventura Yachts Marbella.
Designed by Fulvio De Simoni, Rocket was built in carbon fibre by Italian yard Pershing to RINA class and delivered in 2019 as a Pershing 8X model.

Crew quarters sleep three staff aboard this yacht for sale.
The main saloon is particularly attractive, offering comfortable seating on furniture in Canaletto and ebony woods, a bar and an entertainment centre including a 55-inch television screen, mounted on a rise and fall mechanism.
Relaxed al fresco entertaining and dining is available on the aft deck with built-in upholstered seating, a table and weatherproof loudspeakers connected to the saloon entertainment centre. Her aft extends to form a swim platform which is perfect for watersports and allowing younger generations easy access to the water.
