In 2004 three new boats joined the Ferretti fleet. Each represents a different take on navigation, and each embodies the FERRETTI YACHTS style. Ferretti 460, Ferretti 500 and Ferretti 880 are three new models that fit into the lower, mid and upper ranges, measuring 46, 51 and 88 feet respectively.
Three different ways of living at sea according to the 'Being Ferretti' concept, where total quality, unostentatious elegance, and passion for life at sea are the exclusive requisites of the new upper-class nautical lifestyle:
• Ferretti 460, the latest in the range of craft by FERRETTI YACHTS, is the fruit of innovative design by the Ferretti Engineering division and Zuccon International Project studio. It is the top of its range, with an excellent balance between compact size (14.35 metres), luxury comfort and high performance.
The decorative fittings have been designed to maximise space and enhance the interior. On boarding the boat, the visitor steps into a spacious and welcoming lounge.
The completely redesigned flybridge is fitted with a cosy diner with central table providing extra space, for a completely unique nautical experience. The lines of the Ferretti 460 are enhanced by the spoiler to the stern - broad and efficient as always on a Ferretti yacht. The owner will find more the ample space also on the bridge and in the cockpit, which have been designed to enable complete freedom also when on deck.
• Innovative design and excellent performance characterise the Ferretti 500. With a hull designed to ensure swift, agile navigation, it guarantees ideal comfort levels for those seeking a perfect balance between navigability and relaxation.
With its 15.65 metres length by a beam of almost 5 metres, the new Ferretti 500 adds a model with exceptional performance, designed for maximum comfort, to the FERRETTI YACHTS range.
The innovative design begins with the hull itself which, compared to earlier models in the range, has been redesigned to provide access to the flybridge via steps set at a more comfortable angle, which immediately shows the new, more comfortable organisation. The flybridge offers an exceptional visual panorama over the sea, and has been designed as an independent space and alternative to the lounge.
The interior has been redesigned to create a more contemporary ambience. The unique personal touch can be seen in the great care and attention to detail that only a Ferretti yacht can provide, while successfully respecting agreed delivery times.
The aerodynamic line and sophisticated design, together with the quality finishings and on-board atmosphere, are once again confirmation of Ferretti Yachts' unique style.
• Ferretti 880 is the most precious jewel of the boatyard. A 27-metre flybridge super yacht at the top of the Ferretti range, it offers a new style of yachting which will satisfy even the most sophisticated, demanding clients. The Ferretti 880 offers a new way to experience life at sea, with its unequalled large, luxurious spaces, cosy atmosphere, and performance.
While retaining its recognisable family design, the new Ferretti 880 offers a perfect balance between the classic lines typical of the FERRETTI tradition and innovative styling.
The pure and elegant exterior shapes is carried though to the design of the windows which stretch towards the bows, following the leitmotiv of the range, and offering the owner a 360° panorama of the sea.
The great commitment to the design of the Zuccon International Project Studio and FERRETTI YACHTS Engineering division can be seen in the spacious flybridge, where various 'islands' are an invitation to enjoy days of sunshine and relaxation in company. On request, a large round tank can be positioned in the centre of the broad sunbathing area, where guests will be able to chat comfortably with those sitting on the sofa or enjoying a water massage.
The sleeping area is truly a revelation for owners and their guests, as the Ferretti 880 is fitted with four comfortable cabins and 5 heads. The design features and structural solutions adopted have not made any compromises. As on board all the craft in the FERRETTI YACHTS range, the pleasure of living in the cabins has been entrusted to the skills of the architectural and engineering studios, to ensure optimum comfort while cruising. This is the great plus that makes FERRETTI yachts so totally unique and inimitable.
With these three models for 2004, FERRETTI YACHTS is keeping the Italian flag flying high at the forefront of motor yachts worldwide, with its record of absolute excellence.
