Majestic, versatile and suitable for all markets, Ferretti Yachts 1000 has reshaped spaces and changed the connoisseur's approach to life on board.
Featuring 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.
It is not enough that the vessel be seaworthy, for at the heart of the project is the idea of unparalleled comfort and well-being both outdoors and indoors. Quintessential Italian-taste prevails in an understated, polished design that combines clean-cut shapes and refined materials. There is a sense of sophisticated luxury that brings out the best of the values summed up by the slogan “Just Like Home”: comfort, Italian qualities, timeless designs and craftsmanship.
The new vessel stems from the partnership between Ferretti Group's Product Strategy Committee (led by engineer Piero Ferrari) and Engineering Department, with exterior design work by architect Filippo Salvetti and a new interior design concept by Ideaeitalia.
The exteriors embrace the same design outlook and sporty appearance one would expect of Ferretti 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 hard top, will be made of the material.
Filippo Salvetti describes the Ferretti Yachts 1000: “Ferretti Yachts 1000 is the brand’s flagship and it heralds a new style based on even more simple and clean-cut forms. They give the yacht a strong, spontaneous and graceful appearance with an extremely fresh and vibrant silhouette. The new concept for on-board flows that has been introduced here is set to become an iconic part of all of the large vessels in the range. Designed with the future in mind, this new creation takes things to the next level for faithful Ferretti Yachts customers."
The elegant, modern interior design stays true to the nautical traditions that are an inherent part of the Ferretti Yachts DNA. Versatile modular indoor spaces allow greater personalisation of the on-board experience in order to create a more customised, homelike setting. Natural light pours through the large floor-to-ceiling glazed windows and reveals the warmth and beauty of the interior design. 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. The rooms on the lower deck have been cleverly, rationally designed and the materials are exquisitely balanced. Free-standing furniture and wood interior design schemes emphasise the timeless style of the geometric detailing. There is a feeling of perfect balance between the materials and superior coverings and fabrics add delightfully soft, warm and comfortable sensations that offset the sheen of marble and glass. Simple yet sublime qualities shine through in every detail.
Ferretti Yachts 1000 presents a revamped stern concept with 40 m² of living space, which is on a par with super yacht 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.
One of the yacht’s crowning glories is its multi-purpose galley, which is designed to satisfy even the most demanding owners. Spanning a huge 10 m², it boasts a comprehensive range of equipment. An electric wall opening system reveals a bar and joins it together with the dining area. Further facilities come in the shape of a laundry and storage area next to the galley. It provides access to the crew area, which sleeps five people altogether. As well as a large captain’s cabin, there are two twin cabins. The solutions underline the international nature of the design, which can cater to the needs of different markets and different on-board requirements. Ferretti Yachts 1000 is perfect for everything from family cruises to charter services.
If the elegant design of the Ferretti Yachts 1000 is not enough, consider the speed and cruising capabilities of this remarkable vessel. 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 (preliminary data). On request, the new yacht can be equipped with a gyroscopic stabilisation system and stabilising fins to keep it as quiet and comfortable as possible both at anchor and out on the waves. Classified as a recreational craft with CE marking, Ferretti Yachts 1000 is sure to give the most discerning seafarer a memorable voyage.
