FERRETTI YACHTS 450
Created to captivate enthusiasts and owners of all ages and with various levels of experience from all over the world, this new flybridge yacht is the result of the collaboration between the Ferretti Group Product Strategy Committee, the Group’s Engineering Department, which supervised the technical and naval engineering, and the Zuccon International Project Studio, which handled the exterior and interior design.
The yacht has been built at the VTR plant in Forlì - opened in early 2016 - and features sleek, dynamic lines which give this 45-footer the sporty feel that embodies the latest generation of Ferretti Yachts.
Featuring three decks so you can really enjoy every moment on board, the Ferretti Yachts 450 offers comfortable and extraordinarily bright interiors with glazed surfaces on the main and lower decks.
The furnishings were developed by the interior designers at the Group’s Engineering Department to create a refined, playful contrast between different materials and colours.
This produces a sophisticated combination of woods, lacquered surfaces and fabrics that fuses a contemporary living style with a traditional marine design, which has always been a hallmark of the brand. It is a combination which, in almost 50 years, has captivated owners all around the world, from the US to China, where Ferretti Yachts is synonymous with Italian yachting.
Once on board, the stern swimming platform featuring a tender lift offers a submerged area to use as a beach club or to handle the tender (up to 2.80 metres). The cockpit is fitted with a central stern sofa and a wooden table.
The interiors of the main deck are a single streamlined open space, with a fully parquet floor. The galley at port side features walnut furniture doors with lacquered frames and a glazed surface at the bottom. The worktop is made from innovative nanotechnology material. A leather upholstered cabinet on the starboard side contains a refrigerator and freezer. The central living area is fitted with a sofa on the port side surrounding the dining table, opposite which is a second sofa against the wall. The helm station is located at bow on starboard.
The lower deck offers a three cabin layout, which can sleep up to 6 people.
The full-beam master suite is enhanced by the playful decorations of walnut, fabrics, lacquered surfaces and carpet in various shades of grey, as well as leather inserts in the furniture panels, framework and headboard. The captivating style of the suite also features extraordinary volume and space: indeed, the central double bed is flanked by a comfortable sofa on the starboard side and many storage compartments and by two spacious wardrobes stretching to other containers against the wall.
The master suite is completed by a large en suite head with separate shower decorated by a mosaic wall.
A similar design distinguishes the VIP suite at bow, while the guest cabin features bunk beds on the starboard side. The head with separate shower in the VIP suite is shared with the third cabin and can be used as a day toilet.
There is a surprising amount of space outside for relaxation, starting from the flybridge which gives extra character to the yacht.
The sundeck is divided into a dining area with central table and bar unit at the stern and a central outside helm station. Its compact design, along with the storage of the life raft under the captain’s seat, help create space for a large sun pad at bow. A retractable sun canopy shelters guests during the hottest hours of the day.
The bow of the yacht is also all about relaxation thanks to the central sun pad on the deckhouse.
The Ferretti Yachts 450 is equipped with a pair of Cummins QSB 6.7 engines; yacht owners can choose from two engine options with either 425 Mhp or 480 Mhp. The second option will give the new yacht a cruising speed of 27 knots with a maximum speed of 31 knots (preliminary data).
The new yacht can also be fitted with a practical joystick system to make manoeuvring and mooring even easier.
