Ferretti 680: the sea has no limits
lunes, 30 de agosto de 2004
The Ferretti 680 is a 21 meter long motor yacht that slips in between the 620 and 731 with many details, which in terms of performance, bring it closer to the larger of the two.Result of a close attention to details, the Ferretti 680 was designed to attain a maximum level of cruising comfort thanks to the large dimension and the living solutions that were studied.
Originating from the consolidated collaboration between the Engineering Division and Studio Zuccon International Project, the Ferretti 680 has a series of extremely interesting technical solutions and design interpretations. Among these a standout is the exterior silhouette, a perfect synthesis of soft, continuous lines tracing new design frontiers. The tapered profile fending water and air is demonstrated in the curved line of the superstructure that emphasizes the ample side windows. The same curved line on the upper lever designs the profile of the roll bar, decisive but not aggressive. The owner can control the situation personally from the flying bridge: notwithstanding the size, the 680 is easy to manage without a crew.
Alongside the driver station, one of the best protected to be constructed so far, a chaise longue can be installed whereas on the flying bridge a 3.6 meter tender can be stored right near the roll bar. This large space can also house a two or three place water scooter. The cockpit is sizable and accessible from the flying bridge using a stair in fiber glass with a large locker or ice maker underneath. In the stanchion of the cockpit on the right is a third command station, important for easy anchoring. On the opposite side a small storage area where refuse can easily by emptied to the outside.
The platform of the spoiler is quite large, with storage for a two place jet-ski. The tender fits in here without impeding easy access to the water and stern pulpit and still within the perimeter of the boat.
In terms of the interior the dimension of the hull with 5.63 m. maximum width allows for free distribution of spaces. With respect to the standard proposal, it is possible to adapt the interior to the owner's needs, with minimum changes during production. The large living is in direct contact with the outside cockpit through the top hinged glass that for years has been an absolute plus in Ferretti yachts. The kitchen has two doors: one towards the dining area coinciding with the navigation dinette and the other opens to the helm creating a screen between kitchen and dining. In addition there is easy direct passage to the walkway on the bridge deck. The helm is organized around a modern dashboard with a sinuous design in perfect harmony with the entire style of the yacht. The level below decks is entirely dedicated to the night zone. The large owners cabin has a big double bed, sofa and vanity and obviously its own bath with separate shower. The luxurious vip cabin has a bath with round shower and two twin cabins for guests with their own bath and shower. The performances offer the possibility to enjoy the sea at 32 knots of cruising speed until 36 knots of maximum speed with two MAN 1360 hp engines.
