On the occasion of the 50 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, Ferretti Yachts displays for the first time in US Ferretti 510, innovative model of the 50/60 feet flying bridge segment, designed for renewing the entry-range of Ferretti Yachts and winning over a younger and more dynamic target clientele made of people aged in their 40s, extremely demanding and with no desire to accept compromises in terms of prestige, quality, comfort and performance.
Ferretti 510, introduced for the first time at the festival de la Plaisance of Cannes in 2007, is a project strongly desired by Norberto Ferretti, Chairman of Ferretti Group, with the consolidated partnership between the AYT Advanced Yacht Technology - the Ferretti Group design and research centre - and the Studio Zuccon International Project. With its compact size, 16 metres long by almost 5 metres wide, it makes it possible to live the great Italian luxury and to cruise while indulging in a unknown comfort to this market segment until now.
Among the revolutionary new features: full beam master cabin with a chaise longue and an open-view window, a real suite at sea level swathed in light, with the shades of teak gold wood; the living area, thanks to the up-and-over window in the stern, makes it possible to create an open space including the salon, the cockpit, the kitchen/bar and the dining area without interruptions. The sky lounge without roll bar and the spoiler allow the 510 to sport a dynamic, yet very elegant, line.
The streamlined and aggressive design of the hull is characterised by the huge size of the side windows allowing for a 360 degrees view, meaning that the living area is extremely light and airy. This effect is enhanced by the use of warm woods, which contribute to create a very elegant environment, a classic with a contemporary twist.
On board, the fully fitted kitchen is positioned in the stern on the right, designed for owners who love cruising their yacht by themselves. On the left theres a cupboard and a large and deep corner sofa with a tall, extending coffee table, able to seat up to 6 people. On the right, across the kitchen, theres another two-seater sofa and the steps leading up to the flying bridge. The helm offers perfect visibility thanks to its raised position and its large windows.
The night zone features solutions normally adopted in larger crafts, such as the possibility to have three cabins, two with a double bed and one with twin beds, thus meeting the requirements of ship owners who love to spend time onboard with friends. Should you wish to have a crew, the Ferretti 510 can be fitted with an additional cabin in the stern, which can alternatively be used as a storage area.
The master cabin has been positioned in the stern, covering the total width of the hull. It has its own private bathroom and large wardrobe. The inclusion of the large open-view window with opening portholes is a major step forward in the optimisation of the space, making the 510 the equal of considerably larger crafts. For the other guests on board, the Ferretti 510 offers a double cabin in the bow, and a twin cabin with shared shower room.
For the outdoor life, the Ferretti 510 makes it possible to enjoy the sun to the full on the large flying bridge sun deck. This deck is free from roll bars and is fitted with tops to create shady zones. The flying bridge hosts an additional helm. Conviviality is guaranteed thanks to the large table with 8-seater L-shaped sofa, completed with a grill area.
As far as the engines are concerned, the Ferretti 510 alternatively offers 2 MAN motors of 730 HP or 800 HP, with the most powerful motorization Ferretti 510 can reach the cruising speed of 28 knots and maximum speed of 32 knots.
