The distinctive lines of a Ferretti Yacht have been a celebration of Italian yacht design since 1968. The Ferretti 720 reiterates that celebration in the unprecedented experience of luxury, comfort, and quality, the result of meticulous attention to design detail. The 720 project is an eclectic and successful combination of modern technology that has inspired sleek captivating looks and clever interior features. The WSB team take a closer look at this soon to be ready new 720.
Created in tandem by Ferretti Group’s Product Strategy Committee and Engineering Department, Ferretti Yachts 720 is the second project to sport an exterior designed by architect Filippo Salvetti in collaboration with Ferretti Group. The interior design, on the other hand, was created by the Group’s own architects and designers.
Numerous elements immediately grab the attention, starting from the eye-catching aerodynamic design with its sporty and harmonious lines that have become a signature of the Ferretti Yachts fleet, completely overhauled over the past three years with the arrival of Ferretti Yachts 670, 780, 850, and 920, each a pioneer in terms of style and comfort.
With a length of 73.4 feet (22.30 m) and a beam of 18.4 feet (5.60 m), Ferretti Yachts 720 offers a number of functional and styling solutions that are exceptionally innovative for a vessel of this size.
The on-board experience stands out for the unparalleled levels of comfort, allowing owners to enjoy their yacht as if it were a true floating villa, basking in a new concept of living: total well-being at sea.
In keeping with the innovation process implemented on recent models, the external forward area stands out for its spacious, interchangeable living areas. The generous 30m² flybridge, in carbon fibre and composite materials, is surmounted by a hard top available in 3 different versions: fixed window, built-in bimini, or adjustable louvres.
The aft swimming platform, a true terrace on the sea with convertible chaise longues and ample storage, can house a tender up to 3.95 metres in length.
The interiors of Ferretti Yachts 720 perfectly embody those concepts of well-being and home-like comfort that have become a hallmark of the brand. A large open-plan space is organised into three zones: the living area features two ample facing sofas and is separated from the raised dining area, which offers a remarkable degree of comfort for a yacht this size.
Located on the foredeck are the helm station integrated with the Naviop-Simrad LOOP systems and the electro-hydraulic steering system, developed in partnership with XENTA. The lower deck features a 4-cabin layout. Amidships is the full-beam owner’s suite occupying a generous 20 square metres, while the starboard side houses two double cabins with separate beds, which share a bathroom that can also double as a day head.
A VIP cabin with en-suite bathroom and separate shower are located forward. As is the case with the Ferretti Yachts 670, owners can choose between two styles for the interior design, with very different furnishing solutions and colour palettes.
Ferretti Yachts 720 will also be available in the exclusive Tai He Ban version, conceived specifically for the Asia Pacific market, which includes a service galley below decks and the addition of a dining room with a round table on the main deck.
The first unit of Ferretti Yachts 720, equipped with twin MAN V12 engines capable of producing 1400 mhp, reaches a top speed of 32 knots with a cruising speed of 28 knots (preliminary data). In its standard configuration, the yacht installs twin MAN V8s with an output of 1200 mhp.
