Ferretti Yachts Infynito 90 for China
The Infynito 90 is Ferretti Yachts’ new explorer-inspired, wide-beam, solar-assisted series featuring eco-friendly materials and an ‘all-season terrace’.
Ferretti Yachts has released details of the Infynito 90, with hull one debuting at the Cannes Yachting Festival before making its way to its owner in Shenzhen in southern China. The model is the first in the Infynito series, which complements the brand’s Flybridge range and features a main-deck view sweeping from stern to bow, an ‘all-season terrace’ covered foredeck and a skylounge.
Inspired by explorer vessels and designed to cover long distances, the yacht has an overall length overall of 26.97m (88ft 6in) and a beam of 7.33m (24ft 1in).
The design is a collaboration between Ferretti Group’s Strategic Product Committee led by Piero Ferrari and its Engineering Department, with exterior design by architect Filippo Salvetti and interiors by IdeaeItalia, which offers Classic and Contemporary décors.
The model features Ferretti Sustainable Enhanced Architecture (FSEA), a package of environmentally friendly cruising solutions. These include an integrated system that stores the solar energy collected by photovoltaic panels on the superstructure (producing up to 7.3kW) in a 120 kWh lithium battery pack, which provide eight hours of autonomy at anchor with no emissions and no noise.
In terms of energy efficiency, this means an 80 per cent saving on fuel and a corresponding reduction in CO2 emissions during typical average use of the yacht from a European boating season from May to September, according to Ferretti Yachts.
Green materials include natural and bamboo fabrics, regenerated leather and recyclable materials, ecological water-based paints and lamellar teak with FSC 5 certification used throughout the exteriors.
The transom can access a longitudinal garage that can house a Williams DieselJet 415 tender. The main deck starts with a 34sqm aft cockpit, which can be decorated with free-standing furniture or a panoramic sun pad combined with a formal dining area.
The interior is offered in three configurations. The first unit features a total open space fitted out with an aft saloon with two facing sofas, a country kitchen midships and a dining area forward with a large table seating eight. A more formal version includes an enclosed galley, while a third layout features a full-beam master suite forward.
Electrically operated windows open the interior to the all-season terrace, which features a sun pad in the forepeak. On the first unit, the terrace is fitted out with a Jacuzzi surrounded by sofas, while alternatives include a cocktail bar and four chairs, or a series of sun loungers. The hard top is available with fixed glass or tilting glass louvres, as installed on the first unit.
The upper deck has a skylounge featuring a lounge and TV, while the helm station can be closed off or open. The open aft deck can be configured with free-standing furniture to create a sunbathing and alfresco dining area.
The lower deck can offer up to four en-suite double cabins (master, VIP and two twins), while the crew quarters include three berths in two cabins, a double bathroom and a dinette.
The yacht has a fast displacement hull, while engine choices comprise two 1,550mhp or 1,800mhp MAN V12 engines, offering a range of up to 1,400nm at 10 knots and a top speed of 22 knots with the upgraded options.
Ferretti Yachts has custom designed a RINA-certified fire-safety system for the lithium battery pack in the engine room, in two watertight steel containers fitted with temperature-monitoring sensors. If a potential fire is detected, the control unit activates a pump that sends seawater directly into the battery racks. Separate from the fire system, a ventilation system helps cool the battery temperature.
