The new craft was lowered into the water just a few days after the launch of the first Ferretti Yachts 450.
Cattolica, Italy, 13th July 2016 - Ferretti Yachts is getting ready for the top boat shows in 2016, scheduling two important launches one a few days after the other, confirming the dynamic mood and feeling of vitality that is flourishing at the company at the moment. The very first Ferretti Yachts 850 was launched last Monday in Cattolica. The new flybridge is 85.4 feet long (26 metres) and is the epitome of how the largest yachts in the fleet have evolved, currently consisting of 10 models ranging from 45 to 96 feet.
The Ferretti Yachts 850 is an icon of luxury, offering the unique experience of life in a magnificent maxi loft surrounded by the sea, and it’s just the latest extraordinary masterpiece in the history of a brand that goes back almost fifty years and has won the approval of the main international markets. So, it is no surprise that three of the new yachts have already been sold, two in Europe and one in the Americas: proof that it is already an unmitigated success.
The Ferretti Yachts 850 is being built at the Cattolica shipyard and is the result of the joint efforts by Ferretti Group’s Product Strategy Committee, Studio Zuccon International Project - for the design of the exteriors and the layout of the interiors - and the Group’s Engineering Department, which handled the engineering and naval architecture and the interior design.
Its official presentation is scheduled for the beginning of September during Ferretti Group’s Private Preview in Monte Carlo, before becoming one of the main attractions at the Cannes Yachting Festival (6th-11th September) and the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, to be held in Florida at the beginning of November.
Just a few days earlier, the marina at Cesenatico provided the backdrop for another event: the launching of the first Ferretti Yachts 450, the vessel taking the brand back into the strategic 40-50 feet segment. This fantastic yacht stands out for the geometrical lines of its hull, its generous volumes, and its elegant yet practical interiors designed to create a family feeling alongside its “big brother”, the Ferretti Yachts 550.
Built at the ultra-new centre of excellence in Forlì, officially unveiled at the beginning of 2016, it will also be presented during the Private Preview in Monte Carlo at the start of September, ahead of the Cannes Yachting Festival.
