Majestic and versatile, spacious and spatial, Ferretti Yachts 1000 is the largest boat ever built by the brand. Launched in March and the product of a design process inspired by the search for perfection, the new flagship is a truly impressive project, made of talent and technology, the ability to innovate, and craftsmanship.
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.
Versatile and suited to all markets, Ferretti Yachts 1000 reshapes space and changes the whole approach to life on board with unprecedented design solutions and an interior mood developed to adapt to the owner’s various needs. The first Ferretti Yachts 1000 features Classic styling, with a mood defined by soft, balanced colour tones and subtle contrasts. The other option is Contemporary styling, with fresh tones and bolder colours. At the heart of the project is the idea of unparalleled comfort and wellbeing in both outdoor and indoor areas, where quintessential ‘Made in Italy’ taste prevails. The suavely understated design, featuring clean lines and sophisticated materials, conveys a sense of refined luxury and is the ideal interpretation of the values expressed by the “Just Like Home” claim: comfort, Italianness, timeless design and craftsmanship.
IMPOSING FORMS AND TIMELESS ELEGANCE
The exterior styling reprises the design philosophy introduced with the latest models in the range: sporty lines dominate a profile featuring new glass side panels aft and amidships. Teak is used widely: from the swim platform in the stern, it is reprised on the contours of the rear door, on the walkways and on the stairway up to the flybridge, as well as cladding the external helm station. For the first time in the brand’s history, Ferretti Yachts 1000 makes extensive use of carbon fibre on various parts of the superstructure and hard top.
Ferretti Yachts 1000 introduces a new flow concept on board that looks set to become an iconic feature of the largest yachts in the range. The interior design is elegant and modern, while respecting the boatbuilding tradition imprinted in Ferretti Yachts’ DNA. The versatility of the interiors translates into a layout that leaves the owner ample choice to design their own onboard experience.
The sense of a space to live in prevails. The relationship with the surrounding environment is intensified by large full-height windows that accentuate the feeling of contact with the water and let natural light flood in, while the freestanding furniture conveys a sense of lightness and the contours of the geometrical detailing have a unique style. Walnut wood is used throughout the yacht’s interiors in various ways: flame- coloured and bold for the furniture, striped and softer for the walls, and ribbed for special accents. The special ribbing technique is also used to enrich and embellish the marble in the service areas. The parquet, which reprises the pale colourways, is skilfully blended with the other materials, from the ceilings to the furniture’s unusual back-painted glass tops, giving the setting a relaxed, smooth and elegant tone.
On board, the sensation is one of perfect balance among the materials, with fine upholstery and fabrics offering a pleasing sense of softness, warmth and comfort, in contrast with the sheen of marble and glass. Every detail reveals excellence accompanied by understatement and each individual space welcomes the owner and their guests with exciting solutions that stand out for their timeless appeal.
There was a special focus during the design process on the completely new lighting design, with round spotlights used throughout the boat because of their optimum performance and minimum size.
All the technical features are designed to be hidden by architectural details. One of many examples is the new Garvan audio system, which is made up of small loudspeakers integrated seamlessly into the ceiling that deliver high quality sound.
Ferretti Yachts 1000 extends over two decks with every comfort 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 metres.
