Pursuing excellence as the world’s best flying bridge motoryacht builder, Ferretti Yachts got its start with brothers Allessandro and Norberto Ferretti in 1968, launching their first wooden motor sailing vessel at the Genoa Boat Show in 1971. In 1982, Ferretti unveiled its first motoryacht and began their foray into open and flybridge sportfish models, now manufactured in fiberglass and ranging from 47 feet to 88 feet. Innovations still present today in the industry include a stern helm position, swinging windows in the salon opening onto the cockpit, and internal passage from salon to flying bridge. Ferretti Yachts is part of Ferretti Group’s global portfolio of luxury yacht brands, including Pershing, Itama, Bertram, Riva, Apreamare, Mochi Craft, CRN, and Ferretti Custom Line.
Ferretti Yachts are skillfully and technically built in yards in Italy and US, backed by the most advanced design and naval research center in the world, AYT-Advanced Yacht Technology, in conjunction with talented architects and designers. The subtle Italian design touch comes from Studio Zuccon, an international design firm.
With the creation of the Ferretti Yachts division in 2002, came the introduction of the ARG (Anti-Rolling Gyro) stabilization system and the expansive open-view window in the master stateroom in almost all models. Ferretti’s development of the ZF SteerCommand system which replaces traditional hydraulic steerage for simpler maneuvering of the vessel and use of the most advanced common-rail engines guarantee top performance, safely and quietly.
Ferretti Yachts’ models range from the Ferretti 500 to the Ferretti 881 and Ferretti 881RPH (raised pilot house). The new Ferretti 870 preserves some of the main features in the successful Ferretti 830 and builds on the innovative design solutions in the Ferretti 800. It will exhibit indoor brightness from ample windows, comfort, sporty features, and larger onboard available space—and come in the standard, roll bar version or optional hard top. The Ferretti 720 features a sporty exterior line with spacious interiors, comfort, and ease of handling, and the Ferretti Altura 840 is described as a “villa on the sea.”
