BOOT 2014 GERMAN PREMIÈRE:
Ferretti Yachts 690
Revealed for the first time at 2012 Cannes boat show, the Ferretti Yachts 690 is a further step forward of the Ferretti fleet, characterized by the new design of outer lines, which are now sportier, with a sleeker and more dynamic profile. The wider glazing makes exteriors lighter and provides an amazing quantity of natural light to interior spaces. The interiors of the Ferretti Yachts 690, 21,07 metres long and 5,53 metres wide, are spacious and wisely organised, in order to exploit living areas at their best in both layouts. Volumes are notably enlarged by the natural light coming in from the wide windows. The main deck features a rational distribution of spaces. Its elegant lines make it incredibly wider compared to the previous Ferretti 660. A vertically sliding glass partition allows separating this area from the rest of the saloon or leaving it open, turning the main deck into a large open space. The dining area and the sofa are located in the central part of the deck, enjoying wider spaces and featuring the utmost comfort for the guests. The flybridge has been renewed and bears witness to Ferretti’s great care for indoor and outdoor layout optimisation. Only the bar unit located near the access staircase has been maintained from previous models; everything else has been entirely redesigned so as to ensure all guests the utmost comfort.
Two drive options are available for the Ferretti Yachts 690. The yacht is equipped with two MTU 8V 2000 M84, 1102 mph engines in the standard version or can be fitted, as an option, with two MTU 8V 2000 M94, 1268 mph engines. When equipped with the standard engines, this yacht will reach a maximum speed of 30 knots (with a range of 280 nautical miles) and a cruising speed of 27 knots (in this case the range increases to 300 nautical miles). When the optional, more powerful engines are installed, the maximum speed will be 33 knots (with a range of 250 nautical miles), the cruising speed 30 knots (range - 280 nautical miles). The new set of compact, highly performing engines also allows to save space in the engine room, where a second optional genset can therefore be installed, making the Ferretti 690’s technical features comparable to those found on much larger yachts.
