Speed is the first thought many peo­ple have when talk­ing about a Per­sh­ing. And the builder’s 56 had that in spades — we saw 48 knots on our test day 11 years ago. But this yacht was also penned for the per­for­mance en­thu­si­ast with a grow­ing fam­ily, and was of­fered with a two- or three-state­room lay­out. From an aes­thetic stand­point, the su­per­struc­ture glass flowed with the raked hard­top, cre­at­ing a sense of move­ment in a pleas­ing pro­file. At press time, we found two Per­sh­ing 56s on the mar­ket, a 2007 model for $530,104 and a 2009 ask­ing $864,300.
