Ferretti Yachts 1000: Italian Shipyard Unveils Flagship
Ferretti Yachts has shared a look into its future, with the unveiling of flagship superyacht Ferretti Yachts 1000. With a LOA of 100 feet, she will become the largest yacht to be built by the Italian brand.
Ferretti Yachts is one of many renowned brands owned by the Ferretti Group, which includes Riva, Pershing, CRN, Custom Line and Wally. The unveiling of Ferretti Yachts 1000 looks to take the brand into “unchartered territory” with the aim of building bigger and better. Ferretti Yachts 1000 has been intricately designed to have spaces which will appeal to all markets. The Owners will benefit from innovative design solutions, a choice of two moods for the interiors and the complete privacy of the aft beach area and spacious flybridge.
The brief was focused on delivering unparalleled comfort and well being throughout the interior and exterior guest spaces. The project has involved the best of the Ferretti Group’s in-house talent, with a collaboration between the Product Strategy Committee (led by Piero Ferrari) and the Engineering Department. Filippo Salvetti is the designer behind the sporty and sophisticated exterior profile, while the studio at IdeaeItalia has penned the luxurious interior design concept. With such a plethora of Italian talent behind her design, Ferretti Yachts 1000 is an exemplary work of craftsmanship that fully harnesses the ‘Made in Italy’ feel.
“Ferretti Yachts 1000 is the brand’s flagship and it heralds a new style based on even more simple and clean-cut forms,” said Filippo Salvetti, who has previously collaborated with Ferretti Yachts on the Ferretti 670. “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 and 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 sporty yet sophisticated exterior profile is benefitted by large lateral glass structures aft and amidships, suiting the desires of modern owners for natural light and panoramic views. Teak features prominently throughout the yacht, on the aft beach area, walkways and stairs. As well as being the brand’s flagship, Ferretti Yachts 1000 will also be the company’s first vessel to use an extensive amount of carbon, with a fully carbon superstructure.
The interior styling radiates a contemporary elegance. A modular layout affords great versatility to the onboard spaces, allowing owners to personalise the interiors to their own taste and requirements. The vast natural light that will pour into the spaces is complemented by the interior design scheme and free-standing furniture chosen, providing a perfect balance. The two interior moods created by Ideaeitalia are classic and contemporary. The Classic mood uses softer and more traditional tones with subtle contrasts, while the Contemporary mood has more urban and modern influences.
The beach club has been designed to offer an open wellness area for guests to enjoy, and she is one of the standout features of the yacht. Bordering on the sea, the beach club is the ideal spot for all outdoor entertainment, and she has direct links between the swimming platform and the cockpit. The innovative swimming platform lowers to an under-water level to make it easier to climb up, while a stocked tender garage provides plenty of options for fun on the water.
Perhaps the most exciting feature of the interior is a multi-purpose galley which caters to all needs of different Owners. Spanning 10m2, the galley is fitted with a comprehensive array of equipment, including an electric wall opening system to reveal a bar joined with the dining area.
Ferretti Yachts 1000 provides impeccable social spaces for a yacht of her category, and she would be sure to attract a great deal of attention should she ever appear on the charter market. However, this innovatively designed and exquisitely styled superyacht will more than anything provide memorable private escapes for her Owner, and we hope to see her enter construction in the near future.
