The 28m/92ft Pershing 9x motor yacht was launched shortly before the Cannes Yachting Festival and named ‘NAJATI’.

Designed on the Pershing 92 from which 12 hulls were made, the Pershing 9x provides owners with 4 cabins (1 Master suite, 1 VIP stateroom and 2 twin cabins) for up to 8 guests and a spacious salon layout complete with forward formal dining area. “It’s a huge vessel that looks small,” commented Ferretti Group CEO Alberto Galassi, “and that’s what makes it fantastic.”

Poltrona Frau and Antonio Luppi have furnished the contemporary interior for sporty NAJATI, and the former designer is celebrating a ten-year partnership anniversary with Pershing.

Although the Pershing 9x has retained the wings of the Pershing 92 superstructure, many changes to the design have been implemented: There is a larger cockpit with a generous sunpad to match, and carbon-fibre has been used throughout.

Capable of a top speed of 42 knots and a cruising speed of 38 knots with a range of 380 nautical miles, NAJATI is an ideal island-hopping vessel that will make use of her Twin MTU 16V2000 M96L engines and 9,000 litre fuel capacity.

NAJATI is one of three hulls in the Pershing 9x line that have been built and sold to date, with a fourth hull in the advanced stages of construction.
