Space for onboard comfort and wellbeing; space for timeless design and ‘Made in Italy’ craftsmanship. The first Ferretti Yachts 1000, the shipyard’s first 100% wide-body vessel, was launched in Cattolica for a French owner on March 12. The launch represents the culmination of a design process driven by the quest for perfection: extraordinary investments in Research and Development, thousands of hours of naval design, long-term mould prototyping at the Plug & Mould factory in Forlì, and the equally long and delicate construction phase at the Cattolica shipyard.
While only just unveiled, Ferretti Yachts 1000 looks set to be a huge success and the first three units have already been sold. This remarkable new flagship made up of talent and technology, proves again the yard’s ability to innovate and its craftsmanship. Majestic, versatile and suited to all markets, Ferretti Yachts 1000 reshapes space and changes the whole approach to life on board with unprecedented design solutions and an interior mood in Classic style, featuring soft, balanced colour tones and subtle contrasts.
At the heart of the project is the idea of unparalleled comfort and wellbeing in both outdoor and indoor areas, where quintessential ‘Made in Italy’ taste prevails. The suavely understated design, featuring clean lines and sophisticated materials, conveys a sense of refined luxury and is the ideal interpretation of the values expressed by the “Just Like Home” claim: comfort, Italian style, timeless design and craftsmanship.
“The new flagship is an exciting choral work permeated by the flair, vision and passion of so many skilled and talented people who represent the winning factor for Ferretti Yachts. To them all I’d like to offer my heartfelt thanks for how they have completed an extraordinary project like Ferretti Yachts 1000 in such a complicated year,” commented Ferretti Group CEO Alberto Galassi. “This fantastic yacht really is a beautiful private island on which to imagine your future, in contact with the sea and the finest ‘Made in Italy’ marine expertise.” Ferretti Yachts 1000 is the result of collaboration between the Product Strategy Committee led by Mr. Piero Ferrari, the Ferretti Group Engineering Department, architect Filippo Salvetti for the exteriors and Ideaeitalia for the new interior concept.
