Presented at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, the Ferretti Yachts 780 is the new project which is ready to enter production at the Cattolica shipyard. The first units of the yacht will be manufactured from January 2017 till the beginning of summer and will result in Ferretti Yachts‘ continuous research, driven by dedication to meet each owner’s unique desires in terms of comfort, style, navigation and safety at sea.
The new Ferretti Yachts 780 is the collaborative project between the Product Strategy Committee, the Ferretti Group Engineering Department and Studio Zuccon International Project. This flybridge is the link between the yachts below 70 feet and the larger vessels, the aerodynamic design of which is accentuated by the choice to resize the height of the hull’s topsides to the benefit of the overall sporty character of the yacht. The aggressive look is enhanced by the separation between fiberglass elements and the glass surfaces.
The new 78-foot yacht will be available in the version Tai He Ban, the renowned layout realized by setting up environments dedicated to entertainment, business meetings and informal occasions. The aft area of the Ferretti Yachts 780 offers the comforts of a real beach club with the new door operating system. The tailgate folds together or can be separated into two sections, and in its inner section two large sun pads are located. Once it is fully opened, the space doubles as a relaxing area close to the water. The outer bow area is a private lounge is fitted with a pair of sofas, interspersed by a small table that can be converted into a dining table, and a vast central sun deck completes this area.
The main deck features a dining area, located on one level and consisting of a large living room with a C-shaped sofa, smoking tables and armchairs and the galley, occupying the starboard side. Upon request, the aft bulkhead may be removed, creating a unique environment with an additional living room, to give the yacht an even more livable atmosphere. The corridor below deck leads to the four guest cabins, each with en-suite bathroom.
The full beam master lets natural light through the large double glazing surfaces with integrated porthole. It is organized as a double cabin, with separate shower, walk-in closet, a vanity and study area, sofa and lounge chair. Before reaching the bow VIP cabin, is a lobby that leads to the two guest cabins, one with a double bed on the starboard side and with twin berths on the left.
The Ferretti Yachts 780 will be powered by twin MAN engines with 1400mhp, allowing the yacht to reach 24 knots at cruising speed and touch 28 knots at top speed (preliminary data). Upon request the MAN twin engines with 1550mhp can be installed. In this case the performance will go up to a cruising speed of 26 knots and a top speed of 31 knots (preliminary data). Also the owner can opt for a stabilizer and other solutions to meet every need during navigation, the mooring phase or when dropping anchor in the harbor.
