Ferretti Yachts 920 is a maxi flybridge with imposing, dynamic lines, a range of spacious areas for relaxation and sophisticated interior furnishings, making it one of a kind in its category. Official launch is slated for early September.
The Ferretti Yachts 920 was created from the collaboration between the Ferretti Group’s Product Strategy Committee and Engineering Department, along with Studio Zuccon International Project. Construction is already under way at the Ferretti Yachts Cattolica shipyard in Rimini with launch on track for September.
The Ferretti Yachts 920, at 28.49-metres, has a totally new hull measuring 23.98-metres, which means it can be registered as a recreational craft.
According to its designers, its profile is “dynamic and irrepressible”, with the stylistic cues of the brand’s completely modernised the fleet.
The first major new feature involves raising the height of the bow. As well as giving the yacht an imposing presence on the water, this has allowed the addition of a wide-body master suite on the main deck. The detailing on the bulwarks also helps emphasise the yacht’s “aggressive” character, which continues beyond the walkways and cuts into the design of the windows in the master cabin.
The outdoor areas have an impressive amount of relaxation spaces and luxurious furnishings. The forward space in the bow, in particular, is the largest ever for a Ferretti Yachts vessel of this size.
The sun pad on the deckhouse leads into a dinette fitted with two forward-facing sofas, divided by a passageway, and a pair of sofas with adjustable backrests. This creates a large lounge, completed with coffee tables that can be protected and shaded by curtains upon request.
The stern area features a Submersible Hatch, the famous system used to move the garage door and swimming platform, offering guests all the comfort of a spacious Beach Club and letting the crew handle the tender with ease. Ferretti Yachts 920 can accommodate a tender measuring up to 4-metres.
The cockpit has two possible layouts based on the arrangement of the aft sofa: either a separate sofa, or a chaise longue that can be used as a sun pad or a seat for the outdoor dining table.
The flybridge is a panoramic deck with freestanding furniture, especially amidships and in the stern. The forward part of the hard top overlooking the lounge area and the outdoor helm station comes with various options: the traditional grey fibreglass covering can be replaced with a blacked-out window, a sun canopy, or variable louvres that shade the area letting an excellent amount of light and air through.
The quality of the interiors rivals the the fitouts of higher category models. The main deck divides up the space, bathing it in natural light.
The onboard architecture and décor develop the fascinating leitmotif already enjoyed on the successful Ferretti Yachts 850, while also benefiting from more available space and the use of luxurious materials.
The pilothouse is an exclusively technical area with a “futuristic” design. Here, the captain can manage the entire yacht thanks to a large control station with multiple touchscreen display that fully integrates the on-board monitoring system and navigation instruments, along with a next-gen steering system.
These and many more features will be elaborated upon in the coming months.
