Ferretti Yachts 720

Like at home, with all the comforts of a yacht to inhabit the sea with style and a sense of wellbeing never experienced before. Ferretti Yachts 720, raises the bar on the navigation experience thanks to incredible spaces, plentiful stowage areas and out-of-the-ordinary ceiling heights.

The 720 is the second project with exterior design by architect Filippo Salvetti in collaboration with Ferretti Group, while the interior design was handled by the Group’s in-house architects and designers.

Coinciding with the other yachts in the range, Ferretti Yachts 720 comes with the same highly popular aerodynamic design revolving around taut, finely poised forms that help to make the deckhouse lines extremely clean.

Exteriors

At the centre of the swim platform, a large door swings open to reveal a a convivial area at sea level that can be further expanded by making use of the electro-hydraulically controlled swim platform that reveals further steps down to the transom, making it possible to house a tender up to 3.95 metres long or a three-seat jet ski.

The external forward area stands out for its ample, interchangeable living spaces that make it possible to have an area that can be transformed from a large sun pad into a comfortable dining space with central table.

The spacious 31m² flybridge, made of carbon fibre and composite material, is fitted with a second helm station in the forward-starboard area, framed by a massive sea-facing sun pad. Amidships, a central dinette is served by the bar area.

Interiors

In the cockpit, an aft sofa faces a table for 8. The convivial zone can be further expanded by adding another sofa or a small bar unit on the right-hand side adjacent to the glass door leading to the full-beam lounge. The lounge is a 27m² open space, with ceiling heights that exceed 2 metres, divided into 3 zones: the living area with two large facing sofas; the open space layout affords enough room for a transverse table for 8; forward, behind the dining area, is the galley, conceived as an open, minimalist space, which features a cooking top facing a hidden sink.

Next to the helm station are the stairways that lead down to the lower deck, which has a 4-cabin layout. Here, too, the ceiling heights exceed 2 metres. Amidships, the owner’s suite, situated on a dedicated level, is a full-beam space of 20m², preceded by a space for relaxation with a large sofa. These then lead to the bed and, behind it, towards the stern, a walk-in closet on the port side and a large bathroom to starboard with two basins and separate head and shower.

Style and decor

The shipyard offers owners a choice between two interior design styles that have different furnishing solutions and colour choices. Maintaining the walnut, a first version will have elements characterised in light, neutral lacquered shades. The second, on the other hand, is characterised by dark colours.

The lighting system was specially developed for this model: a combination of horizontal LED lights built into the ceilings that create an effect of diffused light, combined with independent vertical spotlights equipped with adjustable spots that scenically characterise specific and particular points. This system allows the owner to choose the intensity and the lighting effect on the main deck and in all the spaces of the lower deck.

 

Engines

The first unit of Ferretti Yachts 720 is equipped with twin MAN V12 engines capable of producing 1400 mhp and reaches a top speed of 32 with a cruising speed of 28 knots. In its standard configuration, the yacht installs twin MAN V8s for 1200 mhp. As always, a stabilisation package is available on request, featuring two Seakeepers to ensure the utmost stability at sea or when docked.
