New Model: Ferretti 870

The Marina di Cattolica served as the charming background for a new launch for Ferretti on Tuesday 5 June, that of the 870, the latest born in this renowned motor and super yacht fleet. This important, enthralling event was the climax hard working months: from engineering to design, to the manufacturing stage, and the greatest care devoted to the tiniest finishing details. Over the next few weeks and until the end of June, the new model will undergo all necessary technical checks; RINA tests, prototype sea trials, the verification of systems and appliances and on board furnishings will be completed. The 870 hull one will then be officially delivered to its European owner.  Like all other yachts in the range, the Ferretti 870 will be presented as a world premiere at Cannes Boat Show from 11 to 16 September 2012.  This new model continues the two decades close cooperation between Studio Zuccon, Ferretti's AYT, and the Centro Stile of the group. This craft has been entirely built in the Group’s Cattolica production unit. With its considerable size; an overall length of 26.5 metres, a 6 metre-beam, and a full load displacement of 80 tons, the Ferretti 870 model further extends and renovates Ferretti Yachts super yachts fleet which features five models, if one excludes the Custom Line range.  While preserving some features of its predecessor the 830, the new Ferretti 870 is characterised by a series of innovative solutions already widely appreciated on the brands most recent models: the bronze dome over the navigation bridge, also found on the 800, further highlights the crafts sporty look, while the large glazing on the main deck results in very slender lines and extremely bright interiors. In the hull, the two large open-view windows at the height of the master stateroom have now been joined by the opening portholes of the guest cabins and by the double window of the forward VIP cabin. Extensive, spacious areas go hand in hand with great performances on this yacht: during the first medium load trial carried out by the prototype testing team, the Ferretti 870 reached a maximum speed of 32 knots, driven by the two MTU 1948hp engines; such an impressive propulsion, though, perfectly blends with the utmost comfort ensured by the Mitsubishi Anti Rolling Gyro system, which reduces rolling by more than 50%.
