The Ferretti 750, first hull launched in Cattolica
Published: Tuesday, 27 August 2013
The first hull of Ferretti 750 was launched on 27 August at the Ferretti Group yard in Cattolica, Italy. This model represents another step forward in Ferretti’s development of yachts over 70 feet.
The world premiere for this yacht will be at the upcoming Cannes Boat Show 2013. She will then appear at the International Boat show in Genoa. She was built entirely at the Cattolica yard. At 22.75 metres overall and with a 5.70-metre full beam, she is an evolution of the successful Ferretti 720 with many new innovations, both inside and out, giving her a completely new look and style.
She represents a collaboration between Studio Zuccon International Project, AYTD – Advanced Yacht Technology & Design - and the Ferretti Group’s team of engineers, architects, and designers. She strikes an imposing profile, even sleeker and sportier, thanks to the new flybridge with an elongated tail. The new SAT domes are recessed for minimized aesthetics. The standard model comes without a hard top but can be fitted with a five-metre bimini upon request. The flybridge is now davit-free and therefore offers a lot more space. The sunbathing area comes in two versions: one fitted with a roll bar and built-in bimini top, the other with hard top and awning. The sun pad area, beyond the helm station, has enlarged for greater guest comfort.
Another innovation is in the outer stern area. An electrohydraulic swim platform, over a meter and a half long, can be lowered 50 centimetres underwater for easier tender launching. This swim platform can lift up to 450 kilogrammes and host a tender of approximately four meters - a Williams 385 Turbojet can be supplied upon request. A large storage cabinet with tilting door has been installed at the swim platform level for storage of water and diving equipment. Stairs have been installed on the starboard side of the stern for easy access to the swim platform with a seat on the starboard side for those getting ready to dive.
Inside, the Ferretti 750 features many new decorating details and several layout options, to meet the specific needs of the different international markets. Two main deck arrangements are available: with the first, the galley, the helm station, and the dinette are separated from the salon and the living area by a sliding door; with the second a country-style galley, open to the bow and the stern, gives a much more open space more suited to the American market. Lower deck solutions have also been studied, with the possibility of creating dedicated areas for business and entertainment; more suitable for the new Eastern markets.
The Ferretti 750 will be available with two different engine options: two 1381 mph MTU 10V 2000 M84s as standard, or the optional two 1524 mph MTU 10V 2000 M93s. The standard engines will push the vessel to 30 knots, with a cruising speed of 27 knots. The optional engines will increase the top speed to 32.5 knots and the cruising speed to 29 knots
