Following the success of the previous model Ferretti 731, the new Ferretti 740 will make his début in worldwide première at the Salone Nautico Internazionale in Genoa.
Result of the cooperation between Advanced Yacht Technology of Ferretti group and Studio Zuccon International Project, Ferretti 740 is a yacht with a strong personality, created for an Owner who wants to have spacious interiors with a design&decor where warm tones and precious materials predominate, wide sun-zones and innovative solutions like the new design of the hull-windows to have spaces plunged in natural light.
A yachts featuring an inclination for classical style but with elegant, contemporary stylistic touches, coming from a passionate technical and aesthetical research made by the shipyard in order to obtain a manifesto of made in Italy excellence, a master of elegance that cruises the sea.
The external profile of Ferretti 740 is sleek and streamlined thanks to the graphic lines of the windows, that cover almost completely the main deck, and feature a succession of sinuous curves and straight lines, like the three branchial shark windows that make the boat a sea element. In addition to the open view windows of the Owners cabin, two new typologies of windows have been inserted in the hull: a window that features an oval shape with two portholes, and an additional one, at bow, wide and with porthole that can be opened, has been designed to enhance the presence of natural light in every guest zone. On the stern spoiler there is a comfy sofa-bench with electro-hydraulic movement system. The cockpit, with teak floor, is furnished with a sofa, a big table and chairs. On the left, the stairs give access to the flying bridge where the pilot station has been placed further back and in a central position to give a broader view for navigation and piloting the yacht. The pilot seat has a 360 turning circle, allowing the Owner to turn round and share relaxing moments with their guests in the U-shaped dinette behind. A big table and grill area complete the external living zone. Ferretti 740 is also available in hard top version with electric opening of the bimini top.
The wide salon of Ferretti 740, that maintains the structural line of the previous model Ferretti 731 but featuring a new layout, is plunged in natural light and offers a cosy atmosphere created by the tones of the materials selected for the furniture and the bleached walnut, used for the first time onboard Ferrettis yachts. The interior has been managed to obtain to separated areas living and dining area but keeping in the meanwhile an harmonious continuity of space without interruption for the view.
On the left, a wide sofa in a L shape and a comfortable armchair are positioned around a low table. Starboard, there is a TV with pop-up system and an additional sofa for three followed by the stairs to the flying bridge. The dining area separated from the living through wood furniture, features a tempered glass table and chairs for eight guests.
The dining zone opens to an access area that connects galley, pilothouse, the exterior and the lower deck, making more easy the access for the crew. The galley is located in a strategic position, between the dining area and the pilot house, in order to let the crew moving without disturbing the guests privacy. Once more, the shipyard chose the top of made in Italy with a fully-equipped Ernestomeda galley model, with glossy lacquered furnishing in to enhance the light of this area. A sliding door give access to the exterior. At bow is located the pilot house with dinette/charting zone and extendable table.
On the lower deck, the Ferretti 740 cabins are distinguished by studied details: bulkheads and walls are covered in light-coloured fabric framing the windows, which allow in plenty of light. The beds have wood structures and have decorated bed-heads. All the cabins have a private bathroom equipped.
The full-beam Owners suite is located in the centre of the boat, with walk-in wardrobe and bathroom with weng floor where dominates a wide semicircular shower offering a wonderful view of the sea through the open view window. At bow is located the VIP cabin, illuminated by the new project of window; the two guest cabins where the natural light comes inside from the wide, new-designed windows. All the cabins are completed by private heads.
Timeless elegance of Ferretti 740 comes from the perfect balance between a functional design with that aims to the highest level of liveability and the research of the best materials, with a prevalence of bright nuances like ivory, beige and brown palette.
The bleached walnut with very light grain makes the atmosphere warm, comfortable and elegant. The interior is brighten up by colour contrasts of decorative details, like ceilings, panels made in natural textiles and leather for the bead-heads and the special mixture of natural fibres created for some doors. Besides the natural light, that dominates the
atmosphere onboard, the shipyard has accomplished a very accurate illuminating engineering analysis to integrate the layout with the lighting system in order to obtain maximum comfort and relax.

Ferretti 740 mounts two MAN 1360 or two MAN 1550 (optional). Both the motorization push the yacht with a maximum speed over 30 knots.
