A newly launched Ferretti 1000 has been sold by Kitson Yachts founders Brandon Kummer, Tony Imbesi and Michael Tabor to an American owner. Named Gladius, the 30.13 metre superyacht is third in Ferretti's flagship series.
Gladius was constructed with a GRP hull and carbon fibre superstructure. Designed in a sporty style by Filippo Salvetti, she features twin decks defined by sharp and angular lines.
Her 170GT interiors were styled by ideaeITALIA and can host up to 10 guests in five staterooms. At anchor, there is room for as many as 20 guests to be entertained on board. There is also room for five crew.
Outdoor spaces abound with a tiered aft deck configuration; split into three tiers the space features an extended swim platform, sun loungers for unwinding by the waterside, and an al fresco dining table.
Up above, a flybridge provides a comfortable space for relaxing and socialising in warmer climes. A hardtop provides welcome shade on sunny days and can also be opened as desired.
The RINA-classed superyacht is powered by twin MTU engines and can reach a top speed of 24 knots.
Gladius was asking $13,800,000.
