Launched in March, Ferretti Yachts‘ largest boat to date, Ferretti Yachts 1000 is the result of collaboration between the Product Strategy Committee led by Mr. Piero Ferrari, the Ferretti Group Engineering Department, architect Filippo Salvetti for the exteriors, and Ideaeitalia for the new interior concept.
The first Ferretti Yachts 1000 is characterized by Classic styling, with a mood defined by soft, balanced color tones and subtle contrasts. The other alternative is Contemporary styling, with fresh tones and bolder colors.
Sporty lines dominate a profile of Ferretti Yachts’ largest boat to date. The yacht featuring new glass side panels aft and amidships. The swim platform in the stern, the contours of the rear door, the walkways and the stairway up to the flybridge, as well as cladding the external helm station make use of teak. For the first time in the brand’s history, Ferretti Yachts 1000 uses carbon fibre on various parts of the superstructure and hard top.
Ferretti Yachts 1000 features two decks and can accommodate up to 10 guests in five cabins: the owner’s suite on the main deck and four guest cabins on the lower deck. Headroom in the main and lower deck areas exceeds two meters.
The innovative stern concept makes it easy to leave the water when the swim platform is submerged by opening up three steps on either side of the platform as it is lowered. Under the side steps leading up to the cockpit is another point of entry into the garage. that can accommodate a Williams Dieseljet 445 tender, a three-seater jet ski, and even two Seabobs, and may also be reached through an independent entrance on the starboard side.
The cockpit is a spacious area with a glass parapet at the stern, furnished with two comfortable sofas facing each other and a teak table in the centre that can be transformed into either a coffee table or a dining table. The boat features a generous salon overlooking the water. The large full-height side windows, created using a new construction solution, can be fitted on request with opening mechanisms on both sides.
The living space is furnished by Minotti-designed pieces including a large Alexander model corner sofa upholstered in ecru fabric, a Side model low table with leather-clad panels and a Zebrino marble top sunk into the structure, and a Tape model velvet armchair. The dining area, designed to accommodate ten guests, is formed of ten Magda model chairs upholstered in Cattelan leather and a large dining table made from the same wood as the chairs.
The space separating the salon from the night area on the lower deck features a curved smoked glass panel and a ribbed partition with an electric opening mechanism. When open, the partition reveals a bar counter and connects the dining area with the galley. The multifunctional galley is fully appointed and can be fitted with any latest generation appliance: a double oven, a side-by-side fridge with a capacity of over 500 litres, a wine cooler and a built-in coffee machine.
The owner’s suite is entered from the bow and has a spacious walk-in wardrobe with a small sofa. One of a kind, all the furnishings are custom made with contrasting pale leather tops.
The architectural design of the parquet staircase connecting the main deck with the lower deck is accented by LED lighting. At the bottom of the staircase is a lobby fitted with a big cupboard that can be used for bed linen and towels or a refrigerator reserved for guest use.
The two forward cabins can have either two double beds or four single beds that can be separated.
The crew quarters in the bow consist of a dinette with an extending table and around it a spacious captain’s cabin with its own bathroom and two double cabins, plus an additional bathroom, for five crew members.
The first Ferretti Yachts 1000 unit is fitted with twin 2638 mhp MTU 16V 2000 M96L engines, pushing the yacht to a top speed of 28 knots and a cruising speed of 24 knots (preliminary data). The standard version mounts a pair of 2217 mhp MTU 16V 2000 M86 engines, with a top speed of 24 knots and a cruising speed of 20 knots (preliminary data). The yacht is classified as a recreational craft with CE certification.
