New Model: Ferretti 700

By surprise at the 2015 Cannes boat show, Ferretti presented a new 700 model.  An evolution and replacement of the 2012 launched 690, the 700 brings design details from the 550; see side hull windows, and wrap around main deck glass.  Another important change will be the galley location in the middle of the saloon. In the 690 the galley was located astern, a Ferretti innovative feature in this type of motor yacht when in 2005 the 630 model was presented with this layout and since then evolved in other smaller Ferretti's and copied my many other builders. Designed as usual by Zuccon the 700 is a Ferretti quintessential flybridge motor yacht, with a low profile main deck making it look less bulky to most of the offering from the competition.  Her layout will offer two lower deck options; three double cabins or a four cabins choice. In both layouts the owner stateroom stays at midships; with the three cabin version offering a second VIP room in between owners and forward cabin.  Power comes from MAN 1000hp or larger optional 1200hp units.
