Project: Ferretti 960

Ferretti presents a new flagship for its Yachts line the 960, which will also mark the largest yacht ever built in the Cattolica establishment.  The Ferretti 960 shows clever measures thanks to an over-all length of 95 feet and still being under 24 meters in the water line, allowing helm duties to be made without the need of a professional captain license.  Designed by the usual Zuccon and the Ferretti design and engineering studios, the 960 is characterized by two and half decks raised pilot house profile, and the known Italian brand says all the latest novelties in ergonomics as shown in the recent 720, 830, and 690 models are to be featured. The accommodation plan is for four double VIP cabins below, and an owners stateroom in the forward part of the main deck.  One of the innovations of the 960 will seem to be the space for an extra large tender, and a sundeck area on the aft bathing platform.  Speed estimates are for a max of 31 knots with the large MTU 2683hp engines pushing this 99 ton super yacht.  Alternative smaller MTU 2435hp give a max of 2 knots less, and a cruise of 25.
