Ferretti Yachts developing explorer-inspired Infynito 90
The Ferretti Group brand is introducing a new range with the beamy Infynito 90, featuring an enclosed skylounge and ‘all-season terrace’ under the covered foredeck.
The Infynito 90 can reach 22 knots with 1,800hp MAN V12s
Ferretti Yachts is developing the Infynito 90, the first model in a new range of explorer-inspired vessels to be built alongside the builder’s Flybridge models ranging from the Ferretti Yachts 500 to 1000. The first Infynito 90 is scheduled to debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival from September 12-17.
Like the brand’s most recent Flybridge models, the Infynito 90 features exterior design by Filippo Salvetti and interiors by IdeaeItalia, with the studios working in collaboration with Ferretti Group’s Strategic Product Committee led by Piero Ferrari and the Group’s Engineering Department.

The Infynito 90 has an overall length of 26.97m (88ft 6in) but a sub-24m load-line length, so is a CE-certified recreational craft. Its dimensions are notable for a vast beam of 7.33m (24ft 1in), making it 1.11m (3ft 8in) wider than the Ferretti Yachts 860, which has an almost identical overall length.
Engine options are a pair of 1,550hp or 1,800hp MAN V12s, the latter driving the yacht to a top speed of 22 knots and a cruising speed of 17 knots, based on preliminary data. And with a new high-efficiency hull and 11,500 litres of fuel, the yacht has a range of 1,200nm at 12 knots.

The Infynito 90 offers over 100sqm of open-air living spaces, which Ferretti Yachts says is almost 50 per cent more than the segment average, and over 140sqm of interiors, over 25 per cent more than the average.
Salvetti said: “The owner experience is the baseline of the creative process. The design strategy springs from the idea of prioritising the people who will be living in Ferretti Yachts Infynito, of establishing the owner’s experience as the baseline of the creative process, of asking ourselves what could still amaze and satisfy the expectations of our increasingly sophisticated end customers.

“We’ve explored new forms and innovative functions, invented new spaces and new ways of living on the yacht. The new paradigm embraces enhanced lighting, elimination of visual barriers and the creation of new diaphragm spaces between interior and exterior, ambiences that are open but sheltered and intimate.”
The main-deck interior features a saloon, an open galley and stairs to the skylounge, and a forward dining area. And because the main deck is helm free, it offers sweeping views from bow to stern and from interior to exterior, including forward to the innovative ‘all-season terrace’.
All-season terrace forward on the main deck
Covered by a see-through roof and open on all sides, the foredeck terrace is one of the Infynito 90’s most iconic features and includes a sofa in the forepeak plus the option of a jacuzzi and sunpads, a private bar or a lounge set-up. Upstairs, the flybridge includes an enclosed skylounge with a lounge and the helm station, while aft is a customisable open deck area.
IdeaeItalia is again offering both Classic and Contemporary interior design moods, as it has for the brand’s Flybridge models. Owners can also choose between two layouts for the lower deck and three for the main deck, ranging from open-plan spaces to more formal settings reserved for daytime and night-time privacy, and even the option of including a gym.

Davide Bernardini and Alessio Battistini, who co-founded IdeaeItalia in 2013, said: “The Ferretti Yachts Infynito range addresses a segment that needed new concepts. The chief aim of the interior design process was to heighten the perception of space by creating virtuous layouts in which harmony reigns between the sophisticated aesthetic impact and the management of spaces that are always functional and efficient.
“Ferretti Yachts Infynito is designed for owners who are increasingly seeing their yacht as a new place to live in, as an extension of their homes. The keywords now are sobriety, clean lines, softness and equilibrium of forms and materials, but without lapsing into minimalism.
“The upholstery and coverings are characterised by soft radial patterns that transmit positivity, while the reflections in the mirror walls give even the spaces less open to the outside a sensation of spatial infinity, a key feature of this innovative project.”

The new range also introduces FSEA (Ferretti Sustainable Enhanced Architecture), a package of environmentally friendly cruising solutions including a solar roof that generates electricity and charges a lithium battery pack to power onboard services.
This technology powers ‘hotel mode’, offering a silent atmosphere with zero emissions everywhere on board, while there’s an increased commitment to energy efficiency, including optimisation of the lighting and air-conditioning systems.
There are recycled and recyclable elements in the fabrics, leathers and finishings, as well as woods including sustainable teak, with the choice of greener materials including ecological paints.
