United Yacht Sales is pleased to announce the sale of a stunning 2018 Pershing 54', also called the Pershing 5X, by professional yacht brokers John Dial and Brett Jenkins. Located for sale in Palm City, Florida, "DOUBLE O SEVEN" was one of only two Pershing Yachts Surface Drive 5x's in the entire country. Congratulations to the entire team, the new owners, and the sellers on a successful transaction. United Yacht Sales would also like to thank Gary Hardcastle from Denison for introducing the buying party. The asking price at the time of sale was $1,399,000.

"The Pershing 5X represents freedom, power, and thrill for the owner to operate," said John Dial. "From the time the listing went live, we had her sold and closed in less than 90 days. From our marketing reach to our networking with other professional brokers, we had great activity right away and were able to get it sold for our clients."

Below is a video produced by Pershing showing the speed and handling of the Pershing 5X.

United Yacht Sales has been incredibly effective at selling quality, late-model, well-maintained listings that are priced right and marketed effectively. After several years in a row of double-digit growth, United posted a 104% increase in sales in the first quarter of 2021. "This is definitely a seller's market right now," said Peter Schmidt, President of UYS. "We are seeing boats getting multiple offers, including some at or over asking price. If you've thought about selling your boat, I can't imagine a better situation to do it and get the most money possible." (Read: A Seller's Market: Take Advantage)

Original Description & Comments On "DOUBLE O SEVEN":

"Imagine having all your friends on board with the boat opened up, cruising over 40 knots while the surface drives throwing a giant rooster tail, and every head turning as you pass them to admire the performance and design—this is the Pershing 5x!

Not only does this boat look and smell brand new, but every system is up to date and all services are current, including the seakeeper! Meticulously maintained and upgraded, “Double Oh Seven” is turn key ready for the next owner! Its 2/2 layout with a convertible dinette for a 3rd sleeping area, makes this boat have more than adequate space but also fun for the whole family. Whether your headed to the islands for a weekend, out to dinner for the night, or to the sandbar for the day, the 5X does in style and speed attainable by no other sport yacht.

The yachts recent upgrades include: CAT extended warranty until 2023, GOST security, upgraded audio systems, custom fit bedding, custom heat reduction window covers, LED transom name, custom teak package, and more!"

Seen below: With the aft doors open, the cockpit and main deck create a big indoor/outdoor social area.

Vessel Walk-Through of this 2018 Pershing 54 (5X):

While boarding from the aft, the 5x has a teak hydraulic swim platform that lowers around 2’ in order to access the garage. This allows the tender (sized to a 285 Williams jet drive) to slide out or to use as a swim platform for snorkeling, diving, or playing on the water! A cockpit hot and cold shower is just a few steps away, to rinse off the salt water before entering the yacht!

The key design of this express, is the ability to completely open the sunroof and aft door and electric window to fully integrate both the interior and exterior living spaces of the yacht! Everyone can be a part of the conversation whether spending time in the shade or on the oversized sun pad or bench seating in the aft! The slide out cockpit ice maker, makes serving convenient with out having to leave the entertaining area of the deck.

Inside the salon, with the retractable window and door closed, the yacht rides quiet even at top speeds! The 5x is built to "Rina A" standards, and is very noticeable in the way it rides and the sounds underway. In the salon, U- shaped seating surrounds an adjustable table, which faces the starboard storage. An upgraded 32” TV, is on a lift, accompanied by a full Harmon Kardon surround sound system. The electric blackout and privacy shades are both available at the push of a button to ensure complete privacy at the dock.

Moving forward on the port side, is one of the best seating areas in the boat! An aft facing L-shaped settee has 360 degree views of the water and entertaining space, as well as being under the retractable part of the full panoramic sunroof!

To the starboard side, the helm looks like a fighter jet cockpit and it should by the way this boat handles! An upgraded 16” Garmin is front and center, integrated with radar, autopilot and engine room camera. CAT engines and drives controls are below, surrounded by bow thruster and drive toggles. Integrated into the yacht is the Easy Trim/AutoSet for the surface drives to maximize performance and fuel burn. Throttles and the Xenta Joystick are on the starboard panel which makes the boat an ease to dock, as well as the Seakeeper controls.

Down the stairs, you enter the galley and lower lounge area, both surrounded by large hull side windows for panoramic water views. The galley is outfitted with Miele oven, cooktop and fridge. The lounge area to port has a high/low table also doubles as a convertible bed for additional sleeping quarters, with its own TV and surround sound system.

Forward, is the VIP stateroom. Large hull side windows, center line island berth, and 2 hanging lockers, will make any guest feel at home on this yacht. Private access to the guest head also doubles as the day head for the yacht.

The full beam master suite with en-suite bath, is something to be admired. On both sides of the port facing bed are two picturesque windows allowing lots of natural light as well as again panoramic views of the water! It is something to be admired especially while underway! Like each of the other 4 areas of the yacht, the master has its own TV and surround sound system as well!
