The new Pershing 8X was a standout at Boot Dusseldorf, but there’s plenty more in the pipe from the Italy’s Ferretti Group

One of ther standout lauches at Boot Dusseldorf this week was the new Pershing 8X which had its world premiere. The carbonfibre performance sport-fly joins seven models in the X Generation of Pershings and is the result of a collaboration between the architect Fulvio De Simoni, Ferretti Group Strategic Product Committee and the Engineering Department of the Group.

Ferretti Group says the sport-fly design guarantees not only lightness and increased speed, but also greater comfort on board, thanks to larger, more welcoming spaces.

The new Riva 90 Argo was also officially presented at the show: the 90-foot project born from the collaboration with Officina Italiana Design, the studio founded by the designers Mauro Micheli and Sergio Beretta, joins the latest generation of Riva flybridge range, alongside Riva 100 Corsaro and Riva 110 Dolcevita. The BOOT was also the stage for the presentation of four new projects: the new semi-displacement superyacht Custom Line Navetta 30, which bears the signature of two exceptional designers, architects Antonio Citterio and Patricia Viel; Ferretti Yachts 720, which combines the classic-contemporary style of Ferretti Yachts and a modern great impact design conceived by the architect Filippo Salvetti; CRN 70M megayacht, developed in collaboration with designers Andrea Vallicelli and Alessandro Nazareth, who took care of the concept, of the external lines and of the interior partitioning; and 48 Wallytender, which is one of the most anticipated premières of the next Cannes Yachting Festival.
