The Pershing 8X won the "Custom Yachts" category at the 2021 Motor Boat Awards based on meticulous performance tests and sea trials. The virtual prize-giving ceremony was held on January 19, 2021.
Innovative design, pioneering aesthetics, and state-of-the-art technology are always winning factors that result in the commercial success of extraordinary boats. They also win enthusiastic appreciation from yachting experts.
The Pershing 8X is 25.55 metres long (about 83 feet) and 5.86 metres wide (about 19 feet), and the result of a collaboration between design architect Fulvio De Simoni, the Ferretti Group's Product Strategy Committee led by Mr. Piero Ferrari, and the Group Engineering Department. Built from carbon fiber to be lighter, faster, and with lower consumption, the Pershing 8X has sleek, sporty lines underscored by classic Pershing features like the impressive side wings and the aerodynamic profile of the sun deck. The result is a sport-fly yacht that brings together the very highest standards of quality and innovation with unparalleled flair.
On-board comfort is also remarkable. The system that integrates propulsion control with the maneuvering, navigation and monitoring systems offers many benefits. With this system, “piloting" a Pershing, even at high speed and without the support of a captain, is an entertaining and exciting experience.
The Motor Boat Awards are organized by Motor Boat & Yachting and sponsored by Side-Power. The winning boats are judged exclusively on the basis of their design, capabilities, and performance.
With this major award, Pershing again confirms its standing as a unique brand admired all over the world, thanks to the innovative design and technology that is increasingly imprinted in its DNA.
