Project: Ferretti 450

Ferretti Group's 2016 will be a year of important novelty and expansion. This can be easily noticed since it's headline Ferretti yacht brand has already announced two important upcoming projects.  One project which will be of great importance is the 450, a completely new upcoming entry level model for Ferretti. It's been a while since Ferretti build a sub fifty feet model, and the waiting for customers is now over. Designed by Zuccon the 450 follows design stints as seen on the well received 550, and  in my opinion will also be quite a handful for the major competitors. The 450 indeed will feature a full beam midships owners cabin, and a choice of a standard three double cabin layout; third bunk cabin, or optional two large staterooms arrangement.  The 450 will also feature a very interesting main deck, with an L-shape astern galley serving both aft or internal saloon easily. Flybridge will be usual Ferretti layout of a back located forward facing C-shaped dinette, helm to port, and sun-pad to starboard.  Some details which we have seen on new Ferretti will also be happily featured in the 450, see sliding up down bathing platform, while good to the see that part of the brand DNA as the importance of maximizing waterline length has not been forgotten.  The 450 will come with twin Cummins 425hp or optional 480hp units.  Speed will be a max of 31 knots with the large engine option.
