Last looks are good

In profile, the 800 looks dynamic. There is hardly a straight line above the deck and the looks are enhanced by the bronze coloured panels above the wheelhouse. The seemingly  random placement of the hull windows detracts from these good looks, but that is a penalty for having good natural light in the interior.

For the test run in the 800, the Mediterranean had recovered from the winter storms and was virtually calm. The biggest waves were those created by our wash and the 800 treated those as though they did not exist. With its moderate vee hull and sleek lines there is no reason to believe that the 800 will not perform well in rough seas and it certainly demonstrated its sports boat like agility when navigating among the many fishing marker buoys out at sea.

The 800 is sensitive to trim and the speed could be increased by up to one knot at a constant throttle setting by lowering the flaps the give a more level trim. This may be due to the full fuel tank which is located aft but for those seeking economy adjustment of the trim could make a significant difference. To moderate the rolling, the 800 is fitted with a pair of gyro stabilisers, but the calm conditions did not give any chance to test their effectiveness.

This new addition to the Ferretti range breaks new ground in some aspects of the design, and it is also a tribute to the detailing quality of the Ferretti  team. It is great to see a return to simple interiors that manage to combine the practical requirements of sea-going operations with a warm and welcoming appeal. With this design, Ferretti has moved a step forward to meeting the requirements of providing good visibility from the helm stations. The 800 is a great new addition to the Ferretti range.
