Ferretti Yachts 1000 - Bigger and Better
No dream is too big: with a length of 100 feet, the breath-taking new Ferretti Yachts flagship takes the company into uncharted territory. Majestic, versatile and suitable for all markets, Ferretti Yachts 1000 has reshaped spaces and changed the whole approach to life on board. It features unprecedented design solutions and a choice of two different moods for the interiors. Owners and their guests can enjoy complete privacy and make the most of the exterior thanks to an extremely innovative and practical aft beach area and a spacious flybridge that is connected directly to the forward section.
At the heart of the project is the idea of unparalleled comfort and well-being both outdoors and indoors. Quintessential Italian taste prevails in an understated, polished design that combines clean-cut shapes and refined materials. There is a sense of sophisticated luxury that brings out the best of the values summed up by the slogan “Just Like Home”: comfort, Italian qualities, timeless designs and craftsmanship.
The new vessel stems from the partnership between Ferretti Group’s Product Strategy Committee (led by engineer Piero Ferrari) and Engineering Department, with exterior design work by architect Filippo Salvetti and a new interior design concept by Ideaeitalia.
LOFTY FORMS AND TIMELESS ELEGANCE
Ferretti Yachts 1000 is the shipyard’s first 100% wide-body vessel. The exteriors espouse the same design outlook seen in the other recent models in the range. It has a sporty outline, with lateral glass structures aft and amidships. Teak plays a prominent role, appearing not only on the aft beach area but also on the curves of the hatch, the walkways, the stairs leading to the flybridge, and the external helm station. In addition, Ferretti Yachts 1000 is the company’s first ever vessel to feature substantial use of carbon: all of the superstructure, including the hard top, will be made of the material.
“Ferretti Yachts 1000 is the brand’s flagship and it heralds a new style based on even more simple and clean-cut forms. They give the yacht a strong, spontaneous and graceful appearance with an extremely fresh and vibrant silhouette. The new concept for on-board flows that has been introduced here is set to become an iconic part of all of the large vessels in the range. Designed with the future in mind, this new creation takes things to the next level for faithful Ferretti Yachts customers,” said Filippo Salvetti about the new flagship.
The elegant, modern interior design stays true to the nautical traditions that are an inherent part of the Ferretti Yachts DNA. The indoor spaces are highly versatile thanks to a modular layout that gives owners plenty of scope to put their own personal stamp on the on-board experience. It really feels like home. Lots of natural light pours through the large floor-to-ceiling glazed windows, which bring out the best of the surroundings and emphasise the close connection with the sea. The free-standing furniture adds a sense of lightness, while a degree of timeless style is established by the curves of the geometric detailing. Wood is the predominant material in the interior design scheme and a number of different types have been masterfully combined. Nonetheless, there is a feeling of perfect balance between the materials. Superior coverings and fabrics add delightfully soft, warm and comfortable sensations that offset the sheen of marble and glass. Simple yet sublime qualities shine through in every detail. Owners and their guests are made to feel welcome in every area. Fleeting fashions play no part in the spellbinding shapes, which nonetheless encapsulate the very moment when they were conceived.
One of the distinguishing features of the approach taken in the new partnership with Ideaeitalia is a choice between two different interior moods: classic, with soft, traditional tones and subtle contrasts, and contemporary, with bold colors and more urban and modern influences, underlining the widespread international impact on Italian style.
