Projects: Ferretti 620, Ferretti 500

Ferretti presents two projects set to launch for the fiftieth edition of the Genoa boat show. These motor yachts projects feature two similar aspects, the most important is that they are both a further development of another model, and the second is that for the first time we see Ferretti repeating a model designation. Ferretti in fact produced a 620 from 2000 till 2005, and the 500 from 2003 till 2007. Pictured above is the 620 which replaces and reexamines the 2007 presented 592. We see differences surely in the addition of four extra large windows, an extended aft deck which has a central teak table and a passarelle to port side, a larger crew cabin now being full beam, and the change of the fuel tanks position which serve as insulation for the master stateroom to mid ship. The Ferretti 500 is a further development of the fall 2008 launched 470. Just like the 620 above the new 500 will be extended aft in the cockpit, and be added of more windows in the lower deck. These being a total of four large, two per side horizontal shaped opening port holes. As it is expected Ferretti and Zuccon keep the working successful elements on both these models, like the very sought astern looking galley, which thanks to the swinging window joins the interior with the exterior. For those new comers to the yacht scene Ferretti pioneered the swinging window back in the mid eighties.
