The recreational craft, with a 23.98m hull, was created from the collaboration between the Ferretti Group's Product Strategy Committee and Engineering Department, along with Studio Zuccon International Project.
The raised bow of the yacht allows the addition of a wide-body master suite on the main deck. The forward space in the bow is the largest for a Ferretti Yachts vessel of the same size.
The sun pad on the deckhouse leads into a dinette fitted with two forward-facing sofas, divided by a passageway, and a pair of sofas with adjustable backrests. This creates a large lounge, completed with coffee tables that can be protected and shaded by curtains upon request.
The stern area features a submersible hatch, a system used to move the garage door and swimming platform so that the crew handle the tender with ease. The model can accommodate a tender of up to 4m in length.
The cockpit has two possible layouts based on the arrangement of the aft sofa: a separate sofa, or a chaise longue that can be used as a sun pad or a seat for the outdoor dining table. The flybridge is a panoramic deck with freestanding furniture amidships and in the stern.
The forward part of the hard top overlooking the lounge area and the outdoor helm station comes with various options: the traditional grey fibreglass covering can be replaced with a blacked-out window, a sun canopy, or variable louvres that shade the area.
The wide-body master suite has a bed with a dark recessed base and it is surrounded by low furniture along the bulwarks, leaving space for the large windows.
The main area of the lower deck is available in two layouts: the version on the first unit includes three large en-suite cabins, all fitted with a separate wardrobe area.
This exclusive layout offers guests a full-beam double suite amidships including a master cabin, and a second VIP suite on the port side with the same set-up. A third cabin with single beds completes the sleeping area. The four-cabin layout is organised into two en-suite double cabins on the port side and two doubles with single beds on the starboard side.
The Captain can enjoy a private en-suite cabin, while the crew can relax in two double cabins with a bathroom fitted with a separate shower. A second layout is also available for this area with a Captain's cabin at the foredeck.
The Ferretti Yachts 920 is available with three different types of MTU engine. The standard model is powered by twin 12V 2000 M96L 1,948 Mhp engines, which can be upgraded to twin 16V engines, respectively 2000 M86 generating 2,217 Mhp and 2000 M96 with 2,435 Mhp.
Their respective performances are 23, 24 and 26 knots cruising speed and 26.5, 28 and 30 knots maximum speed. The boatyard can also install zero-speed fins or Seakeeper stabilisers on board the Ferretti Yachts 920, upon request.
