New Model: Ferretti 450

With the new 450, Ferretti is marking a return to building a sub fifty feet entry level flybridge motor cruiser and possibly trying to follow the success of the 2004 till 2008 produced 460, which is its best sold model to date.  As is usual from Ferretti, the 450 is a top level model in its segment with the usual low profile flybridge design associated with the brand.  The 450 is offered in a two or three cabin layout.  The third bunk twin berth of the three cabins layout eats space from the VIP forward room, which loses its beauty desk to starboard and will feature a smaller shower head to port.  Power options are twin Cummins 425hp or optional 480hp units.
