The new entry in the Generation X range had its world premiere at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2021. The new Pershing 6X expresses the boldest and most fearless side of the brand’s character, through a series of new features that reflect the unparalleled high standards of the Generation X range of models, with which the Modolfo based shipyard defined a new paradigm for exciting cruising.
18.94m long and 4.8m wide, Pershing 6X is the result of collaboration between Ferretti Group’s Product Strategy Committee led by Mr. Piero Ferrari, the design firm headed by Fulvio De Simoni, and the Group’s Engineering Department.
With exterior styling that shares the same family feeling as the other Generation X models, the new yacht turns heads with large outdoor areas featuring plenty of space for socialising.
The garage in the stern can accommodate a Williams Turbojet 325 tender, with the hydraulically operated swim platform facilitating launch and recovery operations. The cockpit has a generously sized sun pad with an ergonomic backrest framed by a spoiler on the aft side. The seat on the forward side completes this spacious sun pad, which also provides easy access to the garage. The sun pad can be further extended by folding down the backrest of the forward seat. Opposite, the dining area is dominated by an L-shaped sofa seating up to eight people and a sliding and extending low table in soft touch carbon fibre, with a top that is also available in soft touch teak. Protected by the end section of the superstructure, the cockpit features a bar unit on the starboard side with a recessed sink and, on request, a grill and ice-maker or fridge.
Also in this area is the entrance to the crew quarters, with a cabin and bathroom for one crew member. The other outdoor areas are outstanding in terms of their aesthetics and functionality. Side walkways provide access to the bow area, which also features a generously-sized sun pad, followed by a separate chaise lounge that looks out over the water and has a reclining, adjustable backrest for an unforgettable “water’s edge” experience. The stern and foredeck cushions are upholstered in fabrics by Sailmaker from the Mambo line. All the outdoor areas can be shaded from the sun by awnings.
The main lounge is entered from the cockpit through a sliding door that forms part of a large and fully retractable glazed surface. The entire setting is flooded with natural light through extensive side windows and the large sunroof that can be opened above the starboard helm station. The helm station shares the same family feeling as the other Generation X models, with a new yacht wheel made entirely of carbon fibre, featuring leather trim and an all-new design.
On the port side, a C-shaped sofa completes the furnishings in the main lounge, positioned around an extending table for up to six guests. The possibility of raising and lowering the table transforms the dinette into an area for dining or coffee breaks. Opposite are the TV cabinet and storage compartments.
The first Pershing 6X unit has a layout with three cabins – master, VIP forward and guest starboard. The version for the American market has two cabins – master and VIP – with a living space replacing the guest cabin.
This model has a sleek, streamlined design with a highly aerodynamic profile; an incredible 48-knot top speed and the cruising speed about 42 knots; the technological innovations that ensure maximum comfort on board; the system that integrates propulsion control with the manoeuvring, navigation and monitoring systems to ensure maximum ease of operation.
