Pershing 8X is a winner at the Motor Boat Awards 2021

Innovative design paired with pioneering aesthetics and state of the art technology are always winning factors, resulting not only in the commercial success of
extraordinary boats, but also the enthusiastic appreciation from yachting experts.

This is confirmed by an important new award that gets a year packed with many challenges. Last January 19, Pershing triumphed at the prestigious “Motor Boat Awards 2021”, judged by a panel of experts and boat testers on the basis of innovative features, technical parameters and style.

At the virtual prize-giving ceremony, Pershing 8X triumphed in the “Custom Yachts” category, based on meticulous performance tests and sea trials. 25.55 metres long (about 83 feet) and 5.86 metres wide (about 19 feet), Pershing 8X is the result of the collaboration between Fulvio De Simoni, and the Ferretti Group’s Product Strategy Committee led by Mr. Piero Ferrari, and the Group Engineering Department. Built from carbon fibre to be lighter, faster and with lower consumption, 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, not least because of the many benefits offered by the system that integrates propulsion control with the manoeuvring, navigation and monitoring systems. With this model, “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 organised 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 it’s standing as a unique brand admired all over the world, thanks to the innovative design and technology that is increasingly imprinted in its DNA.
