The Pershing Yachts 7X has launched, rounding out the builder’s X series, which also includes the 5X, 8X and 9X.

Designed by Fulvio De Simoni and the Piero Ferrari-led Ferretti Group, Pershing says its Generation X yachts are focused on design, technology, performance and the use of ultra-lightweight materials. The 70-foot 7X is constructed primarily of carbon fiber.

When it comes to design, the yacht’s 17-foot, 6-inch beam helps create real estate for three staterooms belowdecks: a full-beam master stateroom, a starboard-side guest stateroom with twins and a forepeak VIP stateroom, each with en suite heads. The twin-berth stateroom can be replaced by L-shaped seating. Crew quarters are aft of the master and forward of the engine room. Average headroom belowdecks is around 6 feet, 6 inches.

The two-seat, Poltrona Frau leather helm seats are on the main deck to starboard with an L-shaped settee abaft and to port. The settee surrounds a high-low table that also extends to accommodate eight guests for dinner. Flanking the helm are electrically-operated. Forward is the structure-free windshield offering unobstructed views. There is a garage aft on the main deck that’s capable of fitting an 11-foot, 3-inch tender.

The helm on Hull No. 1 has two 19-inch multifunction displays in a dashboard with carbon-fiber control panels. Joysticks and levers flank the captain’s seat.

At a cruising speed of 42 knots, Pershing says the 7X can travel for 300 nautical miles. Top speed? The Italian manufacturer claims 50 knots. Twin 1,800 hp MAN V12 diesels are matched to Top System P85X surface drives.
