Ferretti Yachts shows flagship 1000
The Italian builder has revealed details and images of hull one of its biggest-ever model, the brand’s first to feature extensive use of carbon-fibre.
Ferretti Yachts has revealed exterior and interior photos of its new flagship 1000, which is the largest boat it has ever built and its first to feature extensive use of carbon-fibre on various parts of the superstructure and hard top. The first hull is fitted with optional 2,638mhp MTU 16V 2000 M96L engines, for a top speed of 28 knots and a cruising speed of 24 (preliminary data).
Following on from the 670, 720 and 500, the 1000 is the fourth Ferretti Yachts model with exteriors by Filippo Salvetti and the second – following the 500 – with interiors by IdeaeItalia, which offers a choice of Classic or Contemporary styling.
Teak is used widely including on the swim platform, the contours of the rear door, the walkways and the stairway up to the flybridge, as well as cladding the external helm station.
Two symmetrical staircases from the aft cockpit lead up to the 55sqm (592sqt) flybridge, where the aft area offers space for three Piper model Roda sofas on the first hull.
To port, the dining area under the Nero Elena hard top has an Eden model Roda sofa in teak, metal and fabric customised for Ferretti Yachts, and two tables with natural teak tops that can be joined together to form a large dining table. On the opposite side are a big double bar unit with a Corian top and built-in sink, an optional grill, and a refrigerator and storage area.
The helm station has two electrically adjustable Poltrona Frau pilot seats and two co-pilot seats on the opposite side. The hard top can be configured with a fixed glass insert, one that opens or a system of adjustable glass slats that move aft to provide a large opening.
Flybridge side decks lead to the spacious bow area, which is furnished with sofas and dinettes that can be transformed into a generous sun pad by joining the two up-down tables opposite each other with the sofas and covering them with fitted cushions.
On the main deck, the cockpit offers facing sofas and an infinity view aft, and leads to the interior, which features large full-height windows and freestanding furniture.
The first hull features IdeaeItalia’s Classic styling, with a mood defined by soft, balanced colour tones and subtle contrasts (Contemporary offers “fresh tones and bolder colours”). Walnut wood is used throughout the interiors in various ways: flame-coloured and bold for the furniture, striped and softer for the walls, and ribbed for special accents.
The multifunctional 10sqm galley is fully appointed and can be fitted with any latest generation appliance such as a double oven, side-by-side fridge with a capacity of over 500 litres, a wine cooler and a built-in coffee machine, as on the first hull.
The raised helm station has two entrances, one on the port side for the crew and one on the starboard side for the owner. Completing this area are the leather pilot seat custom designed by Poltrona Frau and a custom sofa with a small table in front of it.
Hull one has the option of four 24-inch touchscreen displays, an upgrade from the standard three (two 24-inch and one 16-inch), while the flybridge helm is fitted with two 16-inch touchscreen monitors, with only one in the standard version. The yacht is equipped with the integrated LOOP system from Naviop-Simrad, which controls the main propulsion, navigation, monitoring and home automation functions using the same interface, simplifying yacht management and navigation.
Forward on the main deck, the owner’s suite has a spacious walk-in wardrobe with a small sofa. The double bed has a sepia-coloured nubuck base, while the cream-coloured bed linen by Gentili Mosconi is personalised for Ferretti Yachts. The TV is hidden behind the mirrored wall opposite the bed. Completing the furnishings is a Minotti armchair at the marble vanity top with drawer.
The suite’s parquet floor continues seamlessly into the generous full-beam bathroom, which is accessed through two smoked glass doors. Combining marble and wood, the bathroom has twin marble washbasins fully integrated into the same unit, while on the right is a large shower complete with a bench fitted with a marble top.
The architectural design of the parquet staircase connecting the main deck with the lower deck is accented by LED lighting. At the bottom of the staircase is a lobby fitted with a big cupboard that can be used for bed linen and towels or a refrigerator reserved for guest use.
This space provides access to four twin double cabins. They all have en-suite bathrooms and the same generous dimensions. The two forward cabins can have either two double beds or four single beds that can be separated: this double configuration provides maximum functionality to satisfy the needs of every owner. Like the owner’s suite, they are all fitted with a mirror TV.
The crew quarters in the bow feature a dinette with an extending table, a captain’s cabin and two double cabins for five crew.
The standard version of the Ferretti Yachts 1000 offers 2,217mhp MTU 16V 2000 M86 engines for a top speed of 24 knots and a cruising speed of 20 knots (preliminary data), while gyroscopic stabilisation combined with stabiliser fins can also be fitted on request.
The first Ferretti Yachts 500 in Asia has headed to Taiwan following a sale through Amal Yachting, while another unit is available in Hong Kong.
