Pershing 5XThis year’s Cannes Yachting Festival will see the launch of the Pershing 5X. This new Italian sportscruiser will be available with a choice of IPS or surface drives.

Due to be unveiled on September 6, the new arrival will measure 54ft 2in (16.51m) making it one of the smallest models in the Pershing stable.

Both versions boast a maximum cruising range of more than 280nm from the 2,200-litre fuel tanks. Prices start at £770,000 for the IPS version and £856,000 with the surface drives.

Key features include two cabins below decks, including a full-beam owner’s cabin amidships and a VIP double in the bows, both of which get their own en-suite.
