After the European and American debut, the yacht has now arrived in Asia, in the exclusive ‘Tai He Ban’ edition, a special layout and selection of materials thought and developed exclusively for our Far East markets.”
NEW Ferretti Yachts 700
The Ferretti Yachts 700 “Tai He Ban” on display is an absolute first for both Hong Kong and in the Asia Pacific region. It has an aggressive, streamlined profile which is one of the most sporty in the brand's history.
The aerodynamic design is particularly evident in the lengthened flybridge, housing satellite systems and antennas housed in the Vulcan Grey roll bar above. The long glazed surface on deck runs from stem to stern, “cutting” through the profile of the yacht. The flybridge can accommodate up to six guests: just perfect for a long weekend with friends. The breathtaking one-level walk-through saloon stretches all the way from the aft cockpit to the helm station, and the windows let in so much light they may as well not be there at all.
Ferretti Yachts 960
The brand's largest-ever planing yacht can be used as a pleasure vessel even without a professional captain. The flagship offers three engine options, all from MTU. The Ferretti Yachts 960 “Tai He Ban” on display in Hong Kong is equipped with a pair of 2,638hp 16V M94 engines. It can reach a maximum speed of 30 knots and cruise at 26 knots: amazing performance from a vessel that boasts sumptuous interior decor featuring such as marble surfaces and back-lit onyx panelling in the saloon.
Ferretti Yachts 870
The Ferretti Yachts 870 “Tai He Ban”, that saw her sister launched and sold during the Hong Kong Gold Coast Boat Show 2015, is now displayed and ready for sea trials. The interior layout, on both the main and lower decks, has been entirely customised, with the bar unit to starboard featuring a high-gloss wooden top and a semi-precious onyx paneling.
The lower deck layout stands out for the flawless arrangement of the areas devoted to entertainment and guests accommodations. Moreover this edition’s interior has been specifically designed to host business meetings and official receptions as well as informal events, and its décor has been carefully developed to suit this purpose.
