Carbon fibre cruising in the new Pershing 8X

Pershing yachts continue to push boundaries in yacht design. Like its predecessor 9X, the all-new 8X is made of the same material that the most advanced nautical craft are made of; carbon fibre. This material not only means lighter weight, greater speed, and lower fuel consumption but also more volume due to the ability to design larger, more comfortable spaces. The on-board comfort is extraordinary, thanks to the many benefits offered by the new system that integrates propulsion control with the manoeuvring, navigation, and monitoring systems. With the new 8X, “piloting” a Pershing, even at high speeds and without the support of the captain, is fun and accessible for all would-be owners. The WSB team take a closer look at the 8x high tech craft.

FB272 is our story today, which demonstrates the huge scope of imagination and build capacity at the Italian shipyard. She features an advanced Lutron domotic system – approximately 500 kilometres of the cable run across her hull and superstructure, providing masses of connection with the outside world: including the huge windows 3 meters in height and the outstanding surface area of 800 square meters of window glass.

The new 45 takes winning features from the 43 such as the Volvo IPS propulsion and takes successful design cues introduced by the Atlantis 51: the upper part of the stem rises vertically, partially stretching forward to boost the dynamics of a boat with a strong sporty character, while its hull windows stretch along the entire side, bringing out the sharpness of this yacht’s contours and its sporty look. Can the new 45 top the record held by the 43? Let’s take a closer look.
