New design solutions and two interior moods: Ferretti Yachts focuses on comfort and well-being, starting from new Ferretti 500

The new Ferretti Yachts philosophy is here, and it has so much to offer to anyone looking for an unparalleled thrill. The traditional Italian luxury yacht brand, a global nautical leader, is indeed announcing a complete style revolution. This challenge will be taken on by Ferretti Yachts 500, based on the ‘Just Like Home’ philosophy, expressing a life at sea that is the perfect combination between style and comfort. The revolution begins from the strategic 50-foot segment, but it will sweep through the entire range, including the fleet’s new flagship.

Breathtakingly beautiful, incredibly comfortable, customisable according to two different moods: the new Ferretti Yachts 500 is a welcoming and versatile space that combines the dynamism of the exterior lines with an interior design completely reconceptualised in both aesthetics and function. The new 500 is the result of the collaboration between the Product Strategy Committee, the Ferretti Group Engineering Department, architect Filippo Salvetti for the exteriors and design studio Ideaeitalia for the new interior design concept.

New Ferretti 500 exterior

The extensive change initiated with Ferretti Yachts 500 transforms the entire sailing experience into an absolute sensation of well-being that engages all the senses. The exteriors follow the philosophy inaugurated with the latest models in the range, integrating it with some interesting new features, such as the aerodynamic design and the sleek, streamlined shapes. The stern features a soft and sporty design, with new solutions and generous spaces, while the profile of the hull proposes an enhancement of the windows, characterised by wide, modern shapes.

Ferretti Yachts 500 revolutionises life on board by preserving the characteristic elements in family feeling with the larger vessels, such as the stern swimming platform. When the platform is submerged, steps are revealed for totally safe access to the sea, and the convenience of the latest-generation optional lift system makes it suitable for the whole family. Ferretti Yachts 500 also features plenty of aft storage space, combining design and functionality. The dual side access leads up to the cockpit, organised with a structural sofa aft, facing a table. This zone can be used as a relaxation area or as a dining area, with the possibility to accommodate up to ten people, while the reclining backrest makes it possible to enjoy a convertible lounge zone, made even more spacious by the possibility of transforming the table into a seat with cushions.

On the flybridge, we find an environment suitable for all situations: an aft dining area features a C-shaped sofa that extends along the back on both sides, with a table in front that can be extended to make room for more guests. In the starboard bow area, a huge sun pad features a double backrest for the maximum comfort. To the side is the outside steering station, with a newly designed helm station that includes a dedicated pilot’s chair. All living area might be covered with bimini. Forward is another area for relaxation, with a large central sun pad with reclining backrests for a full optional beach area.

Interior reveals two souls

The completely renewed interior design embraces the values expressed by the ‘Just Like Home’ philosophy: comfort, pure Italian style, timeless design and artisan craftsmanship. The interiors are a collection of the best of Made In Italy excellence, starting with the furnishings: Graniti Fiandre, Galassia and OML for the bathroom, Colombo handles, Cadorin parquet, Pellini lacquered Venetian blinds, Paffoni sink taps. And the Gentili Mosconi Home Collection of fabrics for Ferretti Yachts makes the onboard experience even more comfortable.

For the first time, Ferretti Yachts 500 reveals two souls thanks to the new interior moods: Classic, with its warm tones and Contemporary, inspired by Mediterranean colours. The two moods are distinguished by a hierarchy of elements: the neutral wood of the wall coverings harmonises with the one that characterises the furniture, while the cool, bright materials, including the ceilings, are contrasted with warm, cosy materials. The elegance of the combination of woods is accompanied by the consistency of the earth colours and the warmth of leather, giving the design personality and charm.

The main deck features a spacious lounge area, with two large sofas and a coffee table that can be transformed into a dining table. The helm station on the main deck also introduces a completely new instrument panel design and advanced instrumentation in line with that installed on the other models of the range.

On the lower deck as well, Ferretti Yachts gives a wide array of choices to the owner and their guests as the shipyard’s proposal includes two different layouts: one features a large master cabin and a VIP cabin, both with private bathroom and a small laundry; the other includes one master cabin, one VIP cabin, and a double cabin with two twin beds and two bathrooms with separate shower. The large windows in the bathrooms make it possible to fully enjoy the natural light. The full-beam master cabin, situated amidships, features new design solutions, including a full-width mirror on the bed side bulwark, which gives further breadth and spaciousness to the environment.

Ferretti Yachts 500 installs twin Cummins QSB 6.7 engines delivering 550 mhp, for a top speed of 30 knots and a cruising speed of 25 knots (preliminary data). The new yacht will also be equipped with optional gyroscopic stabilisation to guarantee the maximum stability at anchor and during navigation.
