Not only was 1985 the year Pershing was established, but it was also the year of the first mobile phone, Back to the Future and the arrival of the Internet.
The era was fertile ground for visionaries and talented geniuses who spent their days imagining worlds, scenarios and technologies.
It is no coincidence therefore that in 1985 Tilli Antonelli, Fausto Filippetti and Giuliano Onori unveiled a yacht designed by Fulvio De Simoni that had never been seen before: as fast as a powerboat, but as comfortable and spacious as a motoryacht.
The Pershing 45 was born and, like every epoch-making success story, it was the beginning of a true revolution that spawned many vain attempts to copy it. But one company that has no desire to imitate itself or anyone else is Pershing itself, an inventive company that has established itself as the leading builder of the fibreglass sports yachts over the years.
The world of yachting has become increasingly familiar with Pershing yachts, and wants more and more of them. It was in the early '90s that the company expanded its international horizons to break into other the Mediterranean countries, the United States and the Far East.
The company joined the Ferretti Group in 1998, thus laying the foundations for tremendous growth that was to lead to a continuous increase in yacht production.
One success followed another and one innovation led to another. Then in 2012 the Weichai group became the majority shareholder of the Ferretti Group. The financial strength, know-how and strategic vision of the Chinese giant gave Pershing the opportunity to make its umpteenth significant improvement by guaranteeing long-term resources and strategies.
Today, the result is clear to the world: rising sales and new models under the aegis of state-of-the-art technology and stylistic innovation that remains unsurpassed.
Built in Italy with futuristic materials and an interior design by Fulvio De Simoni, the Pershing 9X is an incredible 28.04 m maxi coupé yacht that combines elegance, technology, and sporty lines with X Generation excellence for an unforgettable performance on the water.
Powered by powerful MTU 16V 2000 M96L engines, it runs quietly even when traveling at its top speed of 42 knots, and it offers a range of 380 nautical miles when cruising at a speed of 38 knots. In terms of driving and maneuvering, it’s all about convenience. The Pershing X9 is one of the few surface drive boats that can be run with a joystick: press the “Easy Set” button and the auto-trim system will do the work for you.
Its large side wings and the aerodynamic profile of the sun deck give it a sporty style. And its windows boost natural light in its interior spaces. Relax in its sun deck area, spend time in its lounge dinette, or enjoy its sophisticated interior zones equipped with the best Italian brands.
