What's In Build: Ferretti 1000 Project
LOA: 30.13 metres
Interior designer: Ideaeitalia
Exterior designer: Arch. Filippo Salvetti
Naval architect: Ferretti Group
What was the brief?
Ferretti Group chief commercial officer, Stefano de Vivo: "The brief was to realise a majestic, versatile and suitable vessel for all markets, reshaping spaces and changing the whole approach to life on board. In fact, at the heart of the project there is the idea of a yacht that could be a grant of unparalleled comfort and wellbeing both outdoors and indoors.
"In the same time the objective was to build a yacht with a quintessential Italian taste that prevails in an understated, polished design that combines clean-cut shapes and refined materials bringing out the best of the values summed up by the slogan “Just Like Home”: comfort, Italian qualities, timeless designs and craftsmanship.
"Moreover, with the new Ferretti Yachts 1000, we want to introduce unprecedented interior design solutions offering a choice of two different moods for the interiors: classic, with soft, traditional tones and subtle contrasts, and contemporary, with bold colours and more urban and modern influences, underlining the widespread international impact on Italian style."
What has been the most challenging part of the build so far?
SdV: "Ferretti Yachts 1000 is the shipyard’s first 100% wide-body vessel and also it is the first with a length of 100 feet, the breathtaking new Ferretti Yachts flagship takes the company into uncharted territory."
Name one or two standout features on board.
SdV: "In Ferretti Yachts 1000, the use of carbon is massive in order to optimise space and guarantee excellent performance. All of the superstructure, including the hard top, will be made of carbon fibre. Moreover, the vessel presents a revamped stern concept with 40 m² of living space, which is on a par with superyacht sizes."
What is the status of the build and when is the scheduled delivery date?
SdV: "The scheduled delivery date is expected in spring/summer 2021."
