Ferretti Yachts is celebrating the technical launch of its 24-metre (78.9-feet) 780 flybridge model ahead of a busy schedule of appearances at the upcoming European yacht shows from September. The technical launch took place at the Ferretti Group’s Cattolica facilities in Rimini on the Adriatic coast of Italy in late June.
Ferretti Yachts worked with Zuccon International Project on the 780 model, alongside collaboration with the Ferretti Group’s Engineering Department and Product Strategy Committee. The 780 has been built on the yard’s principles of comfort, style, navigation and safety at sea.
Revisions have been made to the height of the hull’s topsides, in order to emphasise a sporty aesthetic. The 780 marries elements of the 450 and 550 models (three guest cabin windows in the hull) alongside hull shapes like those found in the yard’s flybridges over 80 feet to create a unique but distinctively ‘Ferretti’ style.
The 780 also offers a beach club at its stern, created via a novel door operating system, which is an added luxury in this size range. A Tai He Ban version of the 780 flybridge is also available, created specifically for the Asia Pacific market.
The launch of Ferretti Yachts 780 is a major step in the ever-evolving journey of our brand, just a few days ahead of the equally-important launch of Ferretti Yachts 920, the new maxi flybridge also built in the Cattolica yard,” said Stefano de Vivo, Chief Commercial Officer of Ferretti Group.
Potential buyers and Ferretti enthusiasts can expect to see the 780 flybridge model making appearances at the Ferretti Group Private Preview in Monaco from 8 to 10 September, followed by the Cannes Yachting Festival (12-17 September) for its first European showing and the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (1-5 November) for its US debut.
