In recent years, the Cantiere di Mondolfo has undergone an incredible evolution that has led to the development of Generazione X, a range of models based on four core pillars: design, technology, performance and the use of ultralight materials. XENTA will slot into the technology and performance areas, flanking the yard in its development process.
The Pershing 7X is at the very top end of that evolutionary journey, taking the progress made in recent years and improving on its still further. It boasts category-topping performance, unleashing a top speed of 50 knots and fast cruising one of 42 knots with a range of 300 nm. A single evolved interface integrates propulsion and steering systems control, navigation and onboard monitoring.
This technology is the fruit of the combined skills of Top System, Onyx and XENTA for the EasySet propulsion control system and the evolved Steer by Wire electro-hydraulic steering system. The latter are flanked by Naviop-Simrad LOOP for navigation and monitoring systems. The new version of the EasySet system is the product of the experience built up aboard the latest Pershing models and can optimize trim and performance underway, simplifying the use of surface drives whilst still allowing the helmsman to bypass it at any time and return to manual control.
Also available is an innovative XENTA Joystick functionality coupled with the surface drive which offers different advanced modes including Easy Handling for revolutionary maneuverability in port and tight waters. This is enhanced in the case of the Pershing 7X by the independent control function for the two drives coupled with a 48V thruster. In addition to all of the aforementioned, there is also the DPS (Dynamic Positioning System), which holds the boat’s position even in strong winds or currents: the perfect solution for when you are readying to moor or waiting to refuel or for a bridge to raise.
