New Ferretti Yachts 780 for Singapore
Two units of the restyled Ferretti Yachts 780 are scheduled to arrive in Singapore through Hong Seh Marine.
The restyled Ferretti Yachts 780
Two units of the restyled Ferretti Yachts 780 are scheduled to arrive in Singapore in August and September through local dealer Hong Seh Marine, which completed the ‘remote’ sales last year.
The original 780 was launched in 2017, but the model has been redesigned following the stylistic hallmarks introduced by the Ferretti Yachts 500 that launched last year and the brand’s flagship 1000 that premiered at this year’s Venice Boat Show.
Two units of the new FY780 are arriving in Singapore
The 500 and 1000 are the brand’s first models to feature interiors by IdeaeItalia, which worked with Ferretti Group’s Product Strategy Committee and Engineering Department on the new-look 780 to “align it with the family feeling of the new fleet”.
The new features introduced by the restyling range from the extensive glazed surfaces in the hull, giving the yacht an even sportier look, to the new layout and decor of the flybridge, with a larger central bar area in the standard layout.
The aft section of the spacious flybridge is furnished with sun loungers and poufs, while the area sheltered by the hard top has a dining area on the left and a new bar unit on the starboard side facing a multifunctional space in which a dining area with a low coffee table can be transformed into a rear-facing sun pad. The external helm station on the port side features the new Poltrona Frau seat.
All the exterior furnishings, such as a modular sofa for the dining area and the armchairs in teak and batyline fabric, are from the collection customised by Roda exclusively for Ferretti Yachts.
The major redesign of the interiors introduces several highly appreciated new features found on the latest models in the range, including a choice of two decor moods: Classic, with warmer and more traditional colours; and Contemporary, a more urban and modern look with cooler colourways inspired by Taormina in Sicily. The two units for Singapore will feature a Contemporary interior.
On entering the lounge on the main deck, big glazed surfaces surround a living area furnished with a freestanding L-shaped sofa and a Living Divani coffee table facing a 65-inch TV. Behind it, the dining area seats up to eight people around a table with a Silk Georgette marble top and dark green leather chairs.
Midships, a sliding door on the left provides access to the lower deck, while the new galley on the starboard side is a multifunctional space available in three configurations: closed; with a fixed glass partition; or with a sliding glass partition that reveals a bar counter. A day head is another option.
On the lower deck, the standard guest area layout includes four cabins, all with en-suite bathrooms, although there’s an option to replace the owner’s cabin with an entertainment room. The cabins reprise the design of the lounge, with walnut wood and a greater emphasis on stainless steel surfaces, plus flush doors and fine fabric cladding on the walls and ceilings.
Other visual and tactile high points are the beige and pale grey lacquered ribbing on the furniture, the dark green Lealpell leather upholstery, and design objects by Poltrona Frau. The Gentili Mosconi Home Collection of fabrics for Ferretti Yachts includes a selection of custom-made components created in precious natural fabrics.
Twin 1,400mhp MAN engines offer a top speed of 28 knots and a cruising speed of 24, while optional 1,550mhp versions deliver 31 knots and a cruising speed of 27.
Hong Seh Marine is also selling a pre-owned Ferretti Yachts 780 (2018 build) with Tai He Ban layout through its brokerage department.
The global debut of Ferretti Yachts’ new flagship is the highlight of an 11-strong Ferretti Group fleet on display at the second Venice Boat Show.
