Ferretti Yachts’ new flagship, the Ferretti Yachts 1000, has hit the water for the first time at the brand’s Cattolica shipyard.
The first unit of this model, developed for a French owner, is the shipyard’s first 100 percent wide-body vessel.
The launch represents the culmination of thousands of hours of naval design, investment from Ferretti Yachts’ Research and Development team, long-term mould prototyping at the brand’s Plug and Mould factory in Forlì as well as a delicate construction process.
Overseeing the full construction of this vessel from start to finish was Ferretti Yachts’ Product Strategy Committee, led by Mr Piero Ferrari, and the Ferretti Group Engineering Department.
Architect Filippo Salvetti was the mind responsible for the exteriors while design agency, ideaeITALIA developed the interior concept.
With space for both comfort and wellbeing on board, the Ferretti Yachts 1000 is a build that incorporates timeless design and craftsmanship.
Versatile and suited for all markets, the Ferretti Yachts 1000 combines a creative design solution with classical interior aesthetic, defined by soft, balanced colour tones and subtle contrasts.
Clean lines and the use of high-quality materials combine to convey a sense of refined luxury with a homely touch. One that embraces the notions of comfort, Italian style, timeless design and craftsmanship.
“The new flagship is an exciting choral work permeated by the flair, vision and passion of so many skilled and talented people who represent the winning factor for Ferretti Yachts. To them all, I’d like to offer my heartfelt thanks for how they have completed an extraordinary project like Ferretti Yachts 1000 in such a complicated year,” said Ferretti Group CEO, Alberto Galassi.
“This fantastic yacht really is a beautiful private island on which to imagine your future, in contact with the sea and the finest ‘Made in Italy’ marine expertise.”
While only just unveiled, three units of the model have already been sold.
