Welcome to style, comfort, class, performance, brightness, and open lounge areas, imagine these features at the very height of excellence and you will have what Ferretti Yachts suggest as the 450.
The Ferretti Yachts 850 is an icon of luxury, offering the unique experience of life in a magnificent maxi loft surrounded by the sea, and it’s just the latest extraordinary masterpiece in the history of a brand that goes back almost fifty years and has won the approval of the main international markets. So, it is no surprise that three of the new yachts have already been sold, two in Europe and one in the Americas: proof that it is already an unmitigated success.
The 2014 edition of the Cannes Yachting Festival, which marked the beginning of the new international nautical season, was the perfect stage to announce the next, enthralling chapter of a 45-year business history. It was there, indeed, that Ferretti Yachts presented the project of the Ferretti Yachts 550, a very important boat that will help the brand and the Ferretti Group as a whole to achieve the growth objectives they are currently pursuing.
Ferretti has presented the new Ferretti Yachts 650, the first in a series of models that are bound to set a new functional and technical standard for the “Yachts” product line below 70 feet in length. This craft has been developed thanks to the cooperation between the Product Strategy Committee, Ferretti Group’s Marketing Department, AYT&D – Advanced Yachts Technology & Design, and Studio Zuccon International Project and will officially make its debut at the forthcoming autumn boat shows. The new project draws inspiration from the Ferretti 620, one of the product lines best sellers, from which it has inherited some of the most widely appreciated features, like the waterline and the layout below deck. The WSB team took the chance to look behind the scenes to understand how the 650 developments transpired.
The spacious and comfort of a great Ferretti yacht ensured by an overall-length of more than 26 metres, in spite of a hull below 24 metres: this is one of the great strengths of the new Ferretti 870, presented as a worldwide preview at the 35th Festival de la Plaisance in Cannes. Available in the standard roll-bar version or with an optional hard top, depending on the owners taste, this new sports yacht has single-handedly renovated the large-yacht range of the historical Ferretti Group‘s brand. The WSB team go behind the sleek lines of this new addition to the Ferretti Flybridge range and takes a closer look.
Riva, iconic Ferretti Group brand, announces the birth of the new flagship of their open line, featuring racy exteriors with a strong personality: Riva 63′ Virtus, is the largest open yacht produced by the shipyard, characterised by an unmistakable style and a distinctly Mediterranean character. The new Riva 63′ Virtus is the product of a close working relationship between Officina Italiana Design, the studio that exclusively designs all yachts in the Riva range, the AYT – Advanced Yacht Technology, the Ferretti Group’s naval research and design centre, and the team of architects and designers at Centro Stile Ferrettigroup. The new model has been designed as a sporty yacht, created for owners wishing to experience the sea first hand.
Due for launch in the spring of 2012 at an overall-length of over 26.5 metres, allowing to fully enjoy the spaciousness of a great Ferretti yacht in spite of a hull below 24 metres: this is the Ferretti 870 Project, available in the standard, roll bar version or – depending on the Ownerfs tastes – with an optional hard top. A new, important accomplishment by Ferretti Yachts in the large yachts segment. The Ferretti 870, that will be presented during Spring 2012, is yet another outstanding result of the close cooperation between Studio Zuccon International Project, AYT – Advanced Yacht Technology, the Ferretti group’s research and naval design centre, and the team of architects and designers of the Centro Stile Ferrettigroup.
