The new Pershing 8x continues with the new design ethos introduced 5 years ago. The “winged” weatherboard on the port and starboard side are a unique and distinctive feature. For the record I called them “ugly” back in 2014 and predicted they would be fazed out. Boy was I wrong. I also have to say on the 8x the using the wings to hide the stairs going to the flybridge is clever and a really smart design. It’s hard to image an 83′ yacht going 48kts, but thats what this yacht is capable of. Pershing continue to innovate and stand out in a crowed market place.
The latest addition to the Pershing fleet. Nothing like anything seen before, thanks to the superstructure entirely in carbon fibre. Yet another huge leap forward for the new Pershing style, each of its parts designed to amaze, from its interior lines to its technological solutions, through to its performance. One of the most outstanding of its surprising innovations is that the access ladder into the flying bridge is completely built into the unmistakable Pershing wing, transforming the latter from an aesthetic trademark into a functional element, creating more space in the cockpit with a big-impact solution. Double motorization guarantees 45 knots for the standard version and up to 48 knots for the optional version, for truly exciting performance. [via Pershing]
