27th August 2013 – The first hull of Ferretti 750 was launched at the Ferretti Group marina of Cattolica, in Italy. This model represents another step forward in the development of the Ferretti Yacht range over 70 feet. The world premiere of this yacht will take place at the coming edition of the Festival de la Plaisance, in Cannes, and then will be put on display at the International Boat show in Genoa. This model was entirely built at the Ferretti Group shipyard in Cattolica. Ferretti 750, featuring a 22.75 m overall length and a 5.70 m full beam, is the evolution of the successful Ferretti 720, and features many relevant innovations, both inside and outside, which provide to this model a brand new look and style on board. This model results from the settled collaboration between Studio Zuccon International Project, AYTD – Advanced Yacht Technology & Design and the Ferretti Group’s team of engineers, architects, and designers. Ferretti 750 immediately strikes the attention for its outer profile, which is even sleeker and sportier, thanks to the new flybridge with an elongated tail with the new SAT domes recessed lodging, providing to minimize the aesthetic effect of the domes on the profile. The model will be presented in its standard version, without hard top; upon request, it can be equipped with a large bimini top, approximately 5 meter long. The flybridge is even more spacious, since it is davit-free. The sunbathing area of Ferretti 750 is available in other two versions, fitted with roll bar and built-in bimini top, or with hard top and awning. Three different solutions highlighting the great versatility of this model. The sun pad beyond the helm station was enlarged, for a higher comfort of the guests on board. The second innovation on Ferretti 750 in the outer stern area. The distinguishing feature is the electrohydraulic swim platform, which is more than 1.5 meter long. It can be lowered 50 cm underwater, making the launching of the tender easier. The swim platform can lift up to 450 kg and it can host a tender of approximately 4 meters (the shipyard provides a Williams 385 Turbojet upon request). A large storage cabinet with tilting door has been installed at the swim platform level, in which water and diving equipment can be stored. Built-in stairs have been fitted starboard at the stern, in order to guarantee an easier access to the swim platform; while portside a built-in seat allows comfortably getting ready to dive. As for interiors, Ferretti 750 feature many new decorating details and many different layout options, designed to cope with the specific needs of the different international markets where the Group is present. On the main deck, for example, there are two different versions available: in the first one, the galley, the helm station, and the dinette are separated from the salon and the living area by a sliding door. The second version features a country-style galley, open to the bow and to the stern. This last solution makes the main deck a wide open space, which is particularly suitable for the American market. As for the lower deck, many different solutions have been studied, with the possibility to create dedicated areas for business of for entertainment, more suitable for new Eastern market owners. Ferretti 750 will be available with two different engines: two 1381 mph MTU 10V 2000 M84, or, as optional version, two 1524 mph MTU 10V 2000 M93. As for performance, with the standard engines the top speed is 30 knots, with a cruising speed of 27 knots, while with the optional engines, the maximum speed is 32.5 knots and the cruising speed is 29 knots (preliminary data).
