The first Ferretti Yachts 1000, the Ferretti Yachts’ first 100% wide-body vessel, has been launched in Cattolica for a French owner. The shipyard’s largest flagship 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 yacht’s launch marks the culmination of extraordinary investments in Research and Development, thousands of hours of naval design, long-term mould prototyping at the Plug & Mould factory in Forlì, and the equally long and delicate construction phase at the Cattolica shipyard.
Ferretti Yachts 1000 reshapes space with unprecedented design solutions and an interior mood in Classic style, featuring soft, balanced color tones and subtle contrasts. She boasts a sporty outline, with lateral glass structures aft and amidships. Teak appears on the aft beach area, on the curves of the hatch, the walkways, the stairs leading to the flybridge, and the external helm station. In addition, Ferretti Yachts 1000 is the company’s first ever vessel to feature substantial use of carbon: all of the superstructure, including the hard top, will be made of the material.
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. 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. – Alberto Galassi, Ferretti Group CEO
