Pershing 5x

At 54ft overall, the 5x is the smallest, lightest and most nimble of all the 45-knot Pershings, and as a consequence, some say that makes her the most fun to drive. She was born of customers’ desire for a smaller model, under 60ft, with all the usual Pershing qualities, and which also had the enclosed main deck saloon of the larger boats.


Like the larger Pershings, the 5x has a sliding glazed door and window enclosing the rear of the main saloon, which folds away and tucks up under the roof above to create a fabulous, seamless, open-plan living space right through from helm to aft cockpit. Down below, the delightful owner's suite is full beam, with a transverse bed giving lovely views out through the hull window. A second double suite is in the bow, with an option opposite the galley for either a twin-bunk third cabin, a crew cabin with wc or a dining saloon.

The profile of the 5x displays the very latest Pershing styling, including the arching aerofoils that sweep back from the coachroof to the stern and effectively channel the air flow to deflect spray away from the aft cockpit. There's plenty of outside space to enjoy, with a foredeck sunbed, seating/dining in the aft cockpit, a huge aft sunbed and a stern platform. A neat stern garage houses a tender up to 2.8m.

With surface drives, the 5x will hit 42 knots. But she is also available with Volvo IPS drives for a very respectable 36 knots. What's remarkable about the surface drives is just how fuel efficient this shows them to be. On full tanks, the 2000hp surface drive version has a range of 280nm at a cruising speed of 38 knots, while the 1450hp IPS version has a range of 300nm at a cruising speed of 31 knots. So the surface drive version consumes only 5% more fuel per mile, while travelling 22% faster!
