Developed from a collaboration between Ferretti’s Product Strategy Committee, the Ferretti Group Engineering Department and the design studio IdeaeITALIA, the Ferretti Yachts 780 has been rethought to align with family; a direction that reflects the evolution and hallmarked styling previously introduced by the Ferretti Yachts 500 and Ferretti Yachts 1000.
This guiding principle has created an onboard lifestyle; that utter comfort with Made in Italy craftsmanship and luxury – a direction that begins aft with the beach area. Able to store a tender of up to 4.35 metres, this section of the model has lowering rear doors to reveal a spot devoted to by-water relaxation. The inclusion of roomy storage compartments in the hull sides provide enough space for a seabob.
The outdoor forward area is a large private lounge furnished with a U-shaped sofa and a large, central sun pad. The spacious flybridge can mount a hardtop with either a fixed glass insert or a system of panels that open.
The aft section is furnished with sunlounges and poufs, while the area sheltered by the hardtop has a dining area and a new bar as well as a multifunctional space. The external helm station features the new Poltrona Frau seat.
The living area of this model, located on the main deck, includes surrounding large glazed surfaces throughout, alongside a dining area that can seat up to eight. Amidships, a sliding door provides access to the lower deck, while the new galley on the starboard side is a multifunctional space.
Three different configurations are available: closed, with a fixed glass partition in the standard version, or a completely open version, the latter being exclusive for North American clients.
Ferretti Yachts has stated the option for day head is available. Forward of the model is the slightly raised bridge, which offers excellent visibility. Double interface with three 16-inch touchscreen displays is also featured, as is the option for the configuration of up to three 24-inch monitors.
The standard guest area layout includes four cabins on the lower deck, all with ensuite bathrooms. The master stateroom amidships is flooded with natural light through the large windows. Large mirrors add to this, setting the scene in the owner’s bathroom with integrated mixer taps and Silk Georgette marble tops. The presence of three more cabins rounds out the accommodation.
The stern-based crew quarters, which are entered via the cockpit, have equally been developed for onboard comfort and include a captain’s cabin and one for the crew – each including two beds and a personal bathroom.
The standard option is two 1,400 mhp MAN engines offering a top speed of 28 knots and a cruising speed of 24 knots. Ferretti Yachts 780 proposes a pair of 1,550 mhp MAN engines delivering a top speed of 31 knots and a cruising speed of 27 knots.
