Ferretti News
The new Ferretti Yachts 700 is the evolution of one of the greatest recent successes for Ferretti Group's historical brand. It features a slender, aggressive profile - one of the sportiest ones ever in the brand's history. Hull restyling has involved in particular the large hull glazed surfaces three per side, which, preserving the family feeling with those found on the new 55-footer, are stanchion-free and with flush glued portholes. The superstructure conveys a sense of sophisticated lightness: the dark long deck glazing, in the same color as the stanchions, 'cuts' across the yacht's profile from stern to bow. The glazing follows the lowering of the gunwale in the central part of the boat, where the living room can be found, thereby reflecting on the outside the main deck interior layout, while increasing the general sense of lightness that pervades the entire craft. The lowering in the glazing also lets in plenty of natural light and offers guests and the crew alike the widest possible view on the surrounding landscape. The Ferretti Yachts 700 aerodynamic design is most apparent in the elongated tail, surmounted by a roll bar housing satellite systems and antennas and characterized by a new color shade, called 'Vulcan Grey'. Starting from the Ferretti Yachts 700, this warm grey shade will become the brand's second color, and will be used on all accessory systems, in contrast with the white shade of the hull and the superstructure. The installation of all antennas in the roll bar will also make it possible to free up the aft area of the fly-bridge of any and all technical elements, thereby offering the Owner a panoramic terrace that can be furnished with free standing furniture.
