Ferretti 530, 17 metres of elegance
Result of the profitable cooperation between the Engineering Division of Ferretti Yachts and Studio Zuccon International Project, the Ferretti 530 has the most important characteristics proper of the larger motoryachts of the Ferretti range and, at the same time, some innovations in terms of performance at sea and comfort on board.
The soft rounded lines exalting the design in this top range, close attention to quality finishes and an elegant, comfortable atmosphere on board which typifies all Ferretti yachts are enriched by some highly original details in the 530.
Especially in terms of performance, the Ferretti 530, with its deep V hull, has very little difference between cruising and maximum speed; this is one of the results of Ferretti Engineering's intensive research to improve the performance directly concerning the owner: running speed while cruising.
Together with performance, the Ferretti 530 provides excellent comfort on board: interior upholstery has been studied and made with care to reduce noise to a minimum for the added comfort of the owner and his guests.
In terms of spaces, a few details make the Ferretti 530 an extremely comfortable yacht providing the kind of comfort one usually finds on bigger yachts. The flying bridge, with its 360 degree view of the sea from any position, becomes a big space outdoors equipped with sink, grill, hide-away dash to protect the instrumentation and controls, and an original and inviting U shaped sofa seating six which almost completely surrounds a moveable table with an intelligent "bevelling" to make it easier for guests to move about. For the hottest hours of the day one can naturally insert the bimini-top.
Inside, the living with double dinette taking advantage of the external light through the elegant almond-shaped windows, leads to a roomy driver's station where the owner can easily pilot even while standing. From here there are two accesses below decks. The first, at mid boat, leads to the fully equipped kitchen and on to a cabin with bath which can become a second crew's cabin (the other is all the way back to stern). The second, to the bow, leads to the real night zone designed to afford the owner maximum privacy for a boat of this dimension: the ample owner's cabin to bow is kept distinctly separate by two perfectly equipped bathrooms and two guest cabins with twin beds.
Completing the most important characteristics of the Ferretti 530 is the typical stern spoiler, spacious and highly efficient as ever. The owner will be pleasantly surprised at the possibility of leaving the tender on the spoiler and still stowing the jet-ski in the locker beneath, closing the hatch by remote control.This is proof that the pleasure of life on board is not necessarily commensurate with the dimension of the boat one chooses for long and pleasant sea cruises.
