Ferretti Yachts 550: all the comfort of a big yacht in 57 feet
Montag, 21. August 2006
The Ferretti 550 has a new layout and for the first time yacht of this size (57 feet, 17.37 metres) is able to offer three cabins and three heads.
Special windows have been designed also for this craft, and the benefit can be seen in the natural light in the cabins. The care that FERRETTI YACHTS dedicates to designing its new craft also extends to the interiors, which offer more space and highly luxurious finishes. Opaque light oak open-pore varnished for the furniture, while the floors of the galley and the heads were designed using weng.
The new Ferretti 550 is testimony to the care and attention that Ferretti Group Engineering division dedicates to all the yachts in its fleet. On request, new and sophisticated technologies can be fitted to increase the owners comfort. These include NAVIOP, software that allows continuous monitoring, including via SMS, of alarm situations (windows, doors, video cameras and smoke detectors) and also yacht management (electrical system, pumps, tank levels, etc.). The ARG (Anti Rolling Gyro) system is the exclusive gyroscopic anti-rolling system designed for the Ferretti Group by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, which cuts the movement caused by waves by over 50%.
The wheelhouse has a new design which allows all the instruments to be located in a single panel, to ensure better control when piloting the craft. The dinette is located next to the controls along with a small table and a large sofa.
The saloon has been totally redesigned. A U-shaped sofa dominates the space, and there is a dining-table to the right, while on the left there is a sofa. A few steps lead down to the L-shaped galley, with two sinks and black marble worktops.
Below decks there is the master cabin with a spacious double wardrobe and head. The two guest cabins have twin beds, and each has its own head. In order to optimise the use of space on board the Ferretti 550 by means of functional solutions, the head belonging to the cabin on the port side has been designed so that it is also the head that can be used from the day area, thanks to a double entrance which means it can be accessed from the cabin and also from the corridor.
