The Ferretti Group will present 6 Italian previews at the 50th International Boat Show in Genoa from October 2nd to 10th 2010. The Ferretti 800, Pershing 50.1, Dolphin 74’ Cruiser produced by Mochi Craft, Aquariva Gucci by Riva, Navetta 26 Crescendo by Ferretti Custom Line and CRN’s 60 metre superyacht ‘Blue Eyes’ will be on show in Genoa.
The Ferretti 800
With Ferretti 800 the shipyard incorporates a new interpretation of interior space and comfort and presents a yacht which combines tradition and innovation. Designed by architect Gianni Zuccon from Studio Zuccon International Project together with the AYT – Advanced Yacht Technology, the Group’s naval research and design center, and the team of architects and designers at the Group’s Centro Stile, the Ferretti 800 features generous, well-lit interiors that are enhanced by the high gloss surfaces throughout the interior.
The result is a product designed from a synthesis of 3 main points: innovation, design and functionality. Ferretti 800 features generous interior spaces and a layout which is characteristic of larger yachts, combined with a winning external line, enriched by the use of colour, in which large glazed surfaces are a characterising element of the external design, guaranteeing exceptional lighting inside, too.
The interior spaces of Ferretti 800 are innovative and give enhance to liveability of the yacht, conceived for an owner who spend time on boar together with family and friends. The area destined for the crew has been moved to the extreme bow, making it possible to optimise the space available to owner and guests, and increase privacy.
Ferretti 800 mounts two MTU M93 1823 mhp or, upon request, two MTU M94 1948 mhp. Whit this last motorization and the hard top version, Ferretti 800 can reach a cruising speed of 27,5 and maximum speed of 32 knots.
Contemporary reinterpretation of Pershing 50’ by yacht designer Fulvio De Simoni in collaboration with AYT – Advanced Yacht Technology and the team of architects and designers at Centro Stile, the new Pershing 50.1 is an expression of the Next Generation which, even with her decidedly sporty features, has interiors which live up to the expectations of those who already know the style and the elegance of the brand.
It is no coincidence that this yacht has been the best selling model of the Pershing fleet for years and continues to receive acclaim from experts in the sector. The new version combines great character with a high performance and excellent on-board living conditions. The below deck area is very comfortable and is exemplified by the specific attention to detail and choice of materials, such as the primary use of oak and the carpet for the flooring of the cabin and the dinette. In particular, the area occupied by the dinette features new varnished finishes which give the interiors a contemporary mark. Similarly, matt finishes have been chosen to replace the previous glossy tones in the heads.
With innovative aerodynamics and extraordinary elegance, Pershing 50.1 is the smallest model in the range with Arneson surface transmissions which, when combined with twin 900hp MAN diesel engines, can reach a top speed of 46 knots. Moreover, the axis line version – available in white and pearl – is certainly a competitive variation of content for this segment, and allows owners to cruise at a speed of up to 37 knots. Thus, Pershing 50.1 stands out for her above average speed as well as the optimization of consumption and range.
Gucci, and Riva, in collaboration with Officina Italiana Design, the design company which created the original Aquariva in 2000, are proud to present the exclusive “Aquariva Gucci,” a model customized by Frida Giannini, Creative Director at Gucci. This unique association between two of Italy’s most renowned design brands celebrates the era of La Dolce Vita, when joie de vivre, glamour and elegance defined an attitude and a lifestyle. In their respective sectors, Gucci and Riva have similar stories, each with a tradition of excellence in design and craftsmanship which has made them internationally famous.
The distinctive features of this new AQUARIVA GUCCI model include the fibreglass hull painted in Gucci’s own shade of glossy white; the mahogany used for the dashboard, the deck, the cockpit walking area, the awning cover hatch and the rubrail; and the waterproof fabric covering the seats and sundeck with the symbolic Guccissima print. The innovative, electronically-controlled, two speed gearbox reveals all the gritty passion of the two powerful 380 hp Yanmar motors featuring an exceptional performance: 41 knots of maximum speed with a range of 150 miles at cruising speed.
MOCHI CRAFT DOLPHIN 74’ CRUISER
The results of the working relationship between Norberto Ferretti, architect Brunello Acampora from Studio Victory Design, the AYT – Advanced Yacht Technology and the team of architects and designers of Ferretti Group’s Centro Stile, the Dolphin 74’ Cruiser, is the new flagship of the Dolphin line and the answer to a demanding clientele searching for excellence in terms of seaworthiness, comfort and style elegance.
The new Dolphin 74’ Cruiser, ideal for lengthy, open sea cruises, stands out with unique, innovative features unknown to the Lobster segment to date. New, functional solutions and a cutting-edge concept enhance the idea of on-board liveability, fully expressing the heritage of the shipyard’s experience and the Ferretti Group’s leadership. The exterior lines, typical of the Dolphin range, feature a few aesthetic-functional changes, such as the extension of the upper deck. The area can be enclosed providing generous interior volumes and large living spaces. The space was also organized with the aim of completely separating the service areas from those of the Owner, thus ensuring total comfort and privacy at all times of the day.
The Dolphin 74’ Cruiser offers excellent performance , comfort and stability are guaranteed by the Deep V hull, with variable geometry and an average deadrise of 19° with spray rails. Dolphin 74’ Cruiser features twin MTU 10V 2000 M92 – power 1381 mhp, or upon request twin MTU 10V 2000 M94 – power 1623 mhp. The most powerful motorization can push Dolphin 74’ Cruiser with a cruising speed of 29 knots and 32 knots of maximum speed.
FERRETTI CUSTOM LINE NAVETTA 26 CRESCENDO
Navetta 26 Crescendo is the very first model to be produced in the new Ferretti Custom Line semi-displacement line in a region where top Italian-made style is part of the culture. Quality, artisan work, sophisticated harmony, elegance and balance are fundamental values of this line of yachts.
Navetta 26 Crescendo, a natural development of the previous maxi-yacht in the semi-displacement line, is the result of the close working relationship between Studio Zuccon International Project, the Ferretti Group’s AYT – Advanced Yacht Technology and the team of architects and designers at the Group’s Centro Stile.
Specially designed for those owners who prefer “slow motion” as it were, a leisurely cruise in complete silence and total comfort, this new yacht continues with the evolution of the “compact” semi-displacement concept. Navetta 26 Crescendo, 26 meters in length and almost 7 in width, features classical lines in which innovative solutions of both a formal and functional nature have been developed in order to increase on-board space, put it to even better use, and make it more comfortable. Furthermore, the new yacht once again confirms the high level of attention the Ferretti Group pays to the environment, guaranteeing excellent consumption efficiency and a considerable sailing range.
CRN 60 m “BLUE EYES”
CRN 60m “Blue Eyes” is a displacement mega yacht of 60 metres which can host up to 12 people and 14 cabin crew.
A slender and sleek bow, impressive volumes and open spaces overlooking the sea are the characteristics of “BLUE EYES”, a mega yacht made of steel and aluminum, a product of the collaboration between the CRN and the Zuccon International Project who worked on the exterior and Studio Fabrizio Smania Spa who worked on the design of the interiors. The engine includes 2 Caterpillar 3512B to navigate the vessel at a cruising speed of 14 knots.
The stern on the lower deck is completely new and makes part of an area that can be set up as a beach club. The stern hatch transforms into a large beach close to the sea, equipped with comfortable sun beds and used as a solarium. At the back is a spacious area where guests can relax, while enjoying the proximity of the sea as they sit on comfortable sofas in the shade. The distinctive feature of this boat is the balcony of the ship owner’s suite, a platform that overlooks the sea, thanks to the hatch that folds at 90 degrees forming a balcony. Being a strength of the CRN mega yacht, the terrace is among the most requested items of customization requested by the ship owners. A new feature that has already become a tradition.
The following models will also be on display at the boat show: Dolphin 44’, sun top version of Dolphin 54’, Dolphin 64’ Fly and Long Range 23 produced by Mochi Craft; Ferretti 530, Ferretti 570 and Ferretti 830; Pershing 64’, Rivarama, Rivale, 56’ SportRiva and 68’ Ego Super produced by Riva; and Itama Forty, Fifty and FiftyFive.
