Project: Ferretti 840 Altura

Ferretti presents the project of it's second Altura model, the 840 following the 690 launched in 2005 by the World respected Italian yacht builder. As was the case with the 690, the new 840 model follows a different concept of yacht design, with the owners cabin located aft a striking feature of the Altura range, complemented with other new ideas for max onboard comfort and practicality. The 840 Altura adds the bonus of difference with features like the exterior deck layout offering ample spaces for maximum open air living, the totally separate dinning galley area situated in between the main deck saloon and cabin areas, and the interior helm station situated in an upper raised position for maximum view and entertainment by the guests. Estimated performance for the new Altura model is of 30.5 knots max and a 27 knots cruise, powered by latest MTU 12V 2000 engines of 1823 hp each. Ferretti and Zuccon have again broken the barriers of normal yacht schematics with the new 840 Altura, developing the aft cabin to new design border but also adding to it different solutions making this new Ferretti super yacht stand out with it's pure genius as a "Villa on the Sea". Think of it this way, if you like it you will not find much similar designs to it.
