Preview of the new Ferretti 870 superyacht series
by Raphael Montigneaux
The Ferretti Group continues to present new models month after month. This time it's the turn of the Ferretti 870, proud heir of the highly successful Ferretti 830 series.
Directly inspired by the style of the recent Ferretti 800, the Ferretti 870 is another cooperation between Studio Zuccon International Project, Advanced Yacht Technology and the Centro Stile Ferretti Group. This new aggressive design is characterised by the bronze roof above the wheelhouse and large windows on the main deck and in the hull.
Alessandro Tirelli, Ferretti Yachts' Brand Manager explains: 'On the Ferretti 870 we have kept unchanged all the strengths of its predecessor, particularly the rational space arrangement. The exterior design has been improved considerably, drawing inspiration from the brand’s most recent models and by exploiting the longer superstructure to the fullest - a solution which has also allowed us to radically modify the interior layout, to the benefit of onboard space and comfort.'
A length of 26.5m in conjunction with an improved general arrangement gives the Ferretti 870 far more volume. Her layout accommodates eight guests in a full-beam master, a VIP, a double and a twin cabin.
The Ferretti 870 is powered by twin 1,948hp MTU 12V 2000M94 engines giving a top speed of 30.5 knots, a cruising speed of 27 knots and a range of 360 nautical miles at cruising speed.
The first model of the Ferretti 870 series will be presented in Spring 2012.
