Boats on Display Details
Ferretti 510 The Ferretti 510 is a project that Norberto Ferretti Ferretti SpA Chairman was very keen to undertake in collaboration once again with AYT (Advanced Yacht Technology) the Ferretti group naval design and research centre, and Studio Zuccon International Project. The compact dimensions, 16 meters long and almost 5 meters wide, allow the 510 to deliver grand Italian luxury and cruising immersed in such comfort until now unheard of in a yacht of this size. There are three revolutionary innovations: the full beam master cabin with chaise longue and two large open view windows that make it a real suite at sea level bathed in light, tones and the natural essences of teak. Moving the galley from the centre to aft creates a unique open space that includes saloon, galley, cocktail bar and the dining area, the cockpit area continues thanks to the tilting window. For the outdoor life, the Ferretti 510 makes it possible to enjoy the sun to the full on the large flying bridge sun deck. This deck is free from roll bars and is fitted with tops to create shady zones. The flying bridge hosts an additional helm. Conviviality is guaranteed thanks to the large table with 8-seater L-shaped sofa, completed with a grill area. As far as the engines are concerned, the Ferretti 510 alternatively offers 2 MAN motors of 730 HP or 800 HP, both allowing for a maximum speed over 30 knots.
Ferretti Altura 690 The Altura Line comes from the experience and the history gained by the Ferretti shipyards. The Altura 690 is a AFT Cabin motor yacht which unites over thirty five years of technological innovation, research and experimentation with a successful philosophy that has left an indelible mark on the nautical world. The idea behind the Ferretti Altura Line is to provide absolute comfort and ample spaces that make mid to long journeys a pleasure, with particularly nautical furnishings. The Altura 690 offers solutions that make it a real home from home, such as the AFT cabin a master cabin situated in the aft of the yacht to allow for maximum privacy, with a large window above the headboard where light floods into a cosy interior. The furnishings include open pore teak panelling combined with ample sofas and armchairs for entertaining friends in the salon and in all the external areas. In particular there is a large table and comfortable chairs at the bow that can be shaded allowing the sea to be experienced from a salon in a privileged position, offering greater privacy when moored. In terms of speed, the performances of Altura 690, are perfectly in line with the performances of the rest of the FERRETTI YACHTS fleet, and the powerful engine of the two available types (MTU 1218 and MTU 1102) offers a maximum speed of 32,5 knots and a cruising speed of 29 knots.
Mochi Craft Dolphin 44 Dolphin 44, the smallest in the fleet, whose 13 metres embody all the distinctive characteristics of the MOCHI CRAFT lobster boats is characterised by its sporty individuality and high technological standard. Its strong personality is obvious from the very first glance, with the coral livery, the colour proposed by the yard, giving the yacht a vivacious and glamorous air. Its wood trims and fine upholstery fabrics complete the impression of luxury and elegance. The helm station with adjustable seats is in the dinette, which provides every comfort from plasma TV to hi-fi system and allows the owner to pilot the yacht in the company of guests. Extensive spaces are laid out below deck. The stairs lead directly down into the fitted galley with large refrigerator. A large window opening out in front of the countertop means that the galley is flooded with the sights and smells of the natural environment. The cabin has a private bathroom and is illuminated by a large hull window that provides a breathtaking view of the sea. The Dolphin 44 has a guest cabin forward at the bow with a queen-sized and a single bed. It is lit by window in sundeck overhead. The electrical system for handling the tender, stowed ready for use in the garage under the cockpit, eliminates external equipment and provides an unusual degree of on board comfort. As well as the coral livery, this sparkling lobster boat is also offered in cream yellow, turquoise, aquamarine, amaranth and deep blue. It boasts a maximum speed of 32,5 knots and a cruising speed of 28,5 knots, powered by two 575 hp Volvo Penta engines, and can also negotiate shallow waters with ease, thanks to its scant 4 feet of draft. Comfort and stability are ensured by the variable geometry deep Vee keel and average 16deadrise with hydrodynamic steps. A Mitsubishi ARG Anti Rolling Gyro System, exclusive to the Ferretti Spa, can be installed on request, reducing roll while sailing or at anchor by over 50 %.
