After making its worldwide debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival, the Pershing 5X will have its U.S. premiere at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
The Pershing 5X is the result of a collaboration among the Ferretti Group’s engineering department, product strategy committee, and the Fulvio De Simoni Design Studio.
Pershing said the 54.2-foot coupe represents a new chapter in the 30-year history of the brand. The transom can be moved by means of an electro-hydraulic system, and the garage can be accessed from the beach area when the door is open; the cockpit can be reached via steps starboard of the garage or through a concealable gangway.
The 5X is the first Pershing under 60 feet that features a full-beam master suite with an en suite bathroom and a dinette in the front of the galley.
The Pershing 5X is available in two engine configurations, which also involve a different engine room arrangement.
The owner can choose twin Volvo IPS950 D11s of 725 hp with Z-drives and counter-rotating propellers for a cruising speed of 30 knots and a maximum speed of 36 knots. Additional integrated solutions that Volvo offers can be installed on board.
Alternatively, the owner can opt for twin CAT 12.9 engines with 1,000 hp each and Top System 75X surface drives for a cruising speed of 41 knots and a maximum speed of 45 knots.
