On the occasion of the 48th Genoa International Boat Show, Ferretti Yachts presents in worldwide preview the new Ferretti 631, evolution of the model 630, that has been the pioneer of the onboard space revolution thanks to the introduction of the astern galley. The Ferretti 631 posed yet another successful challenge to the design and planning skills of Studio Zuccon International Project and AYT - Advanced Yacht Technology, the Ferretti group design and research centre - who were able to create a yacht of great space and luminosity.
The exterior profile of the Ferretti 631 is very slender and aggressive, thanks to the enlargement of the uninterrupted spherical glazed surface extending from stern to bow. In the interior, the result is a 360-degree view of the sea, enhancing the impression of depth. Externally, numerous solutions have been conceived to heighten the pleasure of outdoor life: on the new flying bridge - more outstretched and sharper a large sun lounge zone occupies the full width of the yacht near the bow, in front of the helmsman's station, where a fixed and extendable table is surrounded by a U-shaped sofa. The back of the sofa, on the helmsman's side, can be rearranged to obtain a two-seater sofa and facilitate the conversation with the person at the controls. The roll-bar of the 630 version has been replaced by an innovative aileron, while the fridge-grill area is situated next to the ladder leading up to the fly bridge.
The cockpit of the Ferretti 631 has been equipped with a fixed teak table for up to 8 people, with a storage compartment for stowing away the chairs. A bar cabinet, that may enclose a fridge has been installed next to the galley area, which communicates with the exterior by means of a tilt window. From the cockpit, it is possible to reach the crew's quarters, with a cabin that can be fitted out with one or two beds and a toilet.
The revolution of space on the Ferretti 631 can be perceived the moment you open the swinging door to the lounge, where a brand-new layout welcomes the guests. Further on towards the bow after the galley, on the port side, we find a large U-shaped sofa and two low central tables, while on the opposite site, the dining zone houses a crystal table with chairs and an L-shaped sofa. A 26 LCD TV set, rested on a cabinet next to the table, is visible both from the sofa and from the dining area. All the furnishings are made of teak and the walls are lined with a light-coloured fabric.
On the starboard side, a spacious galley looking onto the cockpit, is equipped with modern kitchen furniture with an Africa black granite top and a ceramic glass cooktop. The galley can be closed off by a transparent sliding door, whose panels made of wooden strips and opaline glass let the light filter through. Across from the galley, a specially fashioned sofa is flanked by a bar cabinet. On the same side we find a topside ladder going up to the fly bridge.
The cockpit of the Ferretti 631 is in direct communication with the living area, and it can also be accessed from the external hatchway according to a solution typical of bigger-sized vessels.
Below the deck we find the mezzanine that houses the VIP cabin with a double bed, a spacious closet, two bookshelves flanking the bed and a bathroom with separate shower and teak covered floor. The guest cabin on the starboard side has twin beds and shares a bathroom with the living area.
A ladder descends to the big owners cabin, equipped with a capacious closet and a large toilet with separate shower and teak covered floor. As you walk in, you get an impression of spaciousness, enhanced by the great luminosity offered by the open-view windows situated on both sides, with opening port-holes provided to ventilate the cabin. Above the headboard, a teak furniture houses bookshelves and a big mirror. To the left, a comfortable sofa covered with fabric offers a chance to lie down and enjoy the view of the sea. On the opposite side, a vanity table and a dresser provide plenty of practical storage space. The windows are flanked by bookshelves.
The Ferretti 631. offers a choice of two top performing MAN engines, the 1100 or the 1224; with the more powerful engine, cruising speed is 30.5 knots and top speed is 33,5 knots.
