Ferretti Yachts has revealed its future in the shape of its new flagship, which is the biggest it has ever built. Majestic, versatile, and suitable for all markets, Ferretti Yachts 1000 has reshaped spaces and changed the whole approach to life on board. It features unprecedented design solutions and a choice of two different moods for the interiors. Owners and their guests can enjoy complete privacy and make the most of the exterior thanks to an extremely innovative and practical aft beach area and a spacious flybridge that is connected directly to the forward section.
The exteriors espouse the same design outlook seen in the other recent models in the range. It has a sporty outline, with lateral glass structures aft and amidships. Teak plays a prominent role, appearing not only on the aft beach area but also on the curves of the hatch, the walkways, the stairs leading to the flybridge, and the external helm station. In addition, Ferretti Yachts 1000 is the company’s first-ever vessel to feature substantial use of carbon: all of the superstructure, including the hardtop, will be made of the material.
The elegant, modern interior design stays true to the nautical traditions that are an inherent part of the Ferretti Yachts DNA. Lots of natural light pours through the large floor-to-ceiling glazed windows, which bring out the best of the surroundings and emphasize the close connection with the sea. Wood is the predominant material in the interior design scheme and a number of different types have been masterfully combined. Nonetheless, there is a feeling of the perfect balance between the materials.
One of the distinguishing features of the approach taken in the new partnership with Ideaeitalia is a choice between two different interior moods: classic, with soft, traditional tones and subtle contrasts, and contemporary, with bold colors and more urban and modern influences, underlining the widespread international impact on Italian style.
Ferretti Yachts 1000 presents a revamped stern concept with 40 m² of living space, which is on a par with superyacht sizes. It is an authentic beach club with direct links between the swimming platform and the cockpit, creating an open wellness area. Situated right next to the sea, it opens up all sorts of adventurous opportunities for owners, who can use the unprecedented outdoor entertainment zone however they like. On the starboard side, there is independent access to the garage, which can accommodate a Williams Sportjet 445 tender, a personal watercraft, and even 2 Seabob.
The distribution of on-board flows has been innovatively overhauled: access from the cockpit to the flybridge is provided by two stairways and from there it is possible to reach the forward area, where complete privacy is guaranteed.
With the standard layout, there are five cabins in the guest area: an owner’s suite on the main deck and four large double cabins that are all the same size on the lower deck. Owners can happily stay in their own little private apartment with a full range of facilities, including a sizeable full-beam bathroom adorned with a perfect blend of marble and wood. It is a beautiful piece of exceptional workmanship.
Ferretti Yachts 1000, with twin MTU 16V 2000 M86 engines delivering 2638 mhp (optional), reaches a top speed of 28 knots and a cruising speed of 24 knots.
