New Model: Ferretti 690

Ferretti 690 has been launched between the evening of last Tuesday, 24 and the morning of Wednesday 25 July at the dock of Cesenatico, Italy. Another step forward for the fleet of Ferretti Yachts, which now features a brand new model in the seventy feet range. In these weeks all the necessary technical operations will be carried out on the yacht; tests by RINA, sea trials of the prototype, system and unit testing and the internal fitting will be completed. Ferretti 690, which will be presented as a world premiere at the Cannes boat show in September, and will also be on display at the Genoa boat show, is the result of the long time collaboration between Studio Zuccon International Project, and Ferretti Advanced Yacht Technology, the research and design centre of the Group, along the expert team of architects and designers of the Centro Stile. This yacht has an overall length of 21.07 meters and a 5 meter beam. It was entirely produced at the production plant of the Group in Forlì, Italy.  Ferretti 690 is characterized by the new design of outer lines, which are now sportier, with a sleeker and more dynamic profile. The wider glazing makes exteriors lighter and provides an amazing quantity of natural light to interior spaces. The interiors are spacious and wisely organized, in order to exploit living areas at their best. Volumes are notably enlarged by the natural light coming in from the wide windows on the main deck and from the large glazing under deck. The flybridge is the result of an extensive study carried out by the Ferretti Group for indoor and outdoor layout optimization. This area has been has been entirely redesigned so as to ensure all guests the utmost comfort. A choice of three or four double cabins is available, with a crew quarters located to midships behind the owners stateroom. As for performance, the new Ferretti 690 can reach a maximum speed of 31.5 knots with twin MTU 1224hp engines.
