Ferretti Yachts 1000 Skydeck in build
The Ferretti Group builder is completing the first Skydeck edition of its flagship, with the enclosed flybridge version set to launch in June.
The first Skydeck edition of the Ferretti Yachts 1000 (click for Review), which features a Filippo Salvetti exterior, is scheduled to launch in June ahead of its world premiere at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show from October 25-29.
The stand-out new feature is a fully glazed enclosed section of the upper deck, which is connected to the aft terrace by a full-height sliding glass door. The enclosed part of the flybridge offers a second lounge to enjoy in any weather and any time of year or day.
The skylounge can be fitted with air-conditioning and the shutter slats in the hard top can be opened for natural ventilation. A stairway from the bridge provides indoor access to the deck, which can also be reached from outdoors using stairs from the cockpit, while a side door leads to the bow area.
Like the yacht’s other interior areas, the decor features the same types of wood in a play of contrasts between warm hues and paler, more delicate shades, with IdeaeItalia offering Classic and Contemporary moods.
The outdoor terrace is another inviting space, with a fibreglass bar unit and stools, while the stern area can be fitted out with free-standing furniture.
