Ferretti 500, the new dimension of motoryacht
1 de setembro de 2004
With its 15.65 meters of length by almost 5 meters of width, the new Ferretti 500 enriches the FERRETTI YACHTS product ranges with a new model featuring excellent performance, designed to offer the greatest comfort. Its streamlined and elegant design - combined with special attention to details and the atmosphere on board - confirms the uniqueness of FERRETTI yachts.
The innovative design includes a fully redesigned hull, up to the finishing of the flybridge, which is accessed by steps with a more gentle slope and which, while maintaining the elements which characterize this model, proposes a new and more comfortable organization of space. The flybridge offers an extraordinary view of the sea and is designed as an independent and alternative space from the living area, fitted with a sofa and an extendable table, as well as an audio system with CD and external speakers in order to enjoy the greatest relaxation.
Inside the salon is larger and the furnishings were redesigned to harmonize space: a U-shaped sofa and a table, a digital hi-fi dolby stereo system and 15 inch television with LCD screen to fully exploit the living area. The interior was redesigned to create a more modern environment, with light oak-wood furnishings, sofas with a more defined line and natural fiber carpet. The shipowner may choose to customize the finishing by creating light or dark walnut-root or walnut-wood planes, with light oak-wood anti-rolling edges, treated with dark mordant or metallic powder paint. The custom fittings show the great care to detail which only a Ferretti yacht may achieve, while still meeting the established delivery deadlines.
The galley was designed to house a corner cooking area with a very elegant black granite top, fitted with all the necessary elements to create the right atmosphere suitable for every occasion.
The living area leads to the steerage cabin where the bridge, designed to offer the greatest ergonomics, allows for a more comfortable steering position, either standing or comfortably sitting. Also the dashboard has been restyled in materials which enhance its practicality and look. In fact it has been made with a new anti-scratching paint, which, by contrasting with the panel, highlights the shipowner's standpoint. Thanks to the small dinette with a table on the side, the shipowner may enjoy the company of his/her guests during navigation.
Below deck, the master cabin is comfortable and roomy, separated from the two guests' cabins by two fully fitted bathrooms. The Ferretti 500 gives the shipowner a chance to arrange two separate single-bed cabins for the crew, both fitted with bathroom, or to use one of the two rooms as a utility room. The cabin has a stereo sound system with CD, which allows the shipowner to live in this space as he/she wishes, choosing for example to relax in private at any time of the day. The bow sundeck and the organization of the resting spaces make any moment of the cruise comfortable and relaxing.
As far as the motorization is concerned, the Ferretti 500 features two 700 Mhp MAN D2876's to ensure excellent and sailing performance in all conditions.
