New Model: Ferretti 800

On Monday 22nd February, the new Ferretti 800 moved out of the Cattolica shipyard to reach the nearby dock for technical sea trials. The Ferretti 800 is just over 24 metres of length making it what is often referred to a pocket Super Yacht status. In its first sea trials according to Ferretti's technical department the 800 confirmed a perfect hydrostatic trim, with an excellent sea keeping, going beyond the performances and noisiness expectations when cruising. According to Ferretti the 800 is also extremely manageable when turning, with great satisfaction of AYT, responsible for the project which has been developed together with Zuccon International Project. The 800 as we stated in our project presentation a few weeks back features a different interior combination which sorts of goes back to the future with a lower deck having the crew quarters to fore, engines to aft, and thus allowing for more spaces for the owners and guests. Long standing designer Zuccon now with Ferretti for a twenty year period also presented clever looks which make you think of a raised pilot house, but in fact it is not. Although the lower helm station has a feeling of being separate and is up three steps from the lower part of the saloon. Power is from twin MAN 1800hp with so far not confirmed top speed estimates of 31 knots. Now the Ferretti 800 will be presented as a preview to clients and dealer network during an event which will be held in April, and after that it will be officially launched at the coming Cannes show in September.
