Versatile and suited to all markets, Ferretti Yachts 1000 reshapes space and changes the whole approach to life on board with unprecedented design solutions and an interior mood developed to adapt to the owner’s various needs. The first Ferretti Yachts 1000 features Classic styling, with a mood defined by soft, balanced color tones and subtle contrasts. The other option is Contemporary styling, with fresh tones and bolder colors. At the heart of the project is the idea of unparalleled comfort and wellbeing in both outdoor and indoor areas, where quintessential ‘Made in Italy’ taste prevails. The suavely understated design, featuring clean lines and sophisticated materials, conveys a sense of refined luxury and is the ideal interpretation of the values expressed by the “Just Like Home” claim: comfort, Italianness, timeless design, and craftsmanship.
The exterior styling reprises the design philosophy introduced with the latest models in the range: sporty lines dominate a profile featuring new glass side panels aft and amidships. Teak is used widely: from the swim platform in the stern, it is reprised on the contours of the rear door, on the walkways, and on the stairway up to the flybridge, as well as cladding the external helm station. For the first time in the brand’s history, Ferretti Yachts 1000 makes extensive use of carbon fiber on various parts of the superstructure and hardtop. Ferretti Yachts 1000 introduces a new flow concept on board that looks set to become an iconic feature of the largest yachts in the range. The interior design is elegant and modern while respecting the boatbuilding tradition imprinted in Ferretti Yachts’ DNA. The versatility of the interiors translates into a layout that leaves the owner ample choice to design their own onboard experience. The sense of a space to live in prevails.
The relationship with the surrounding environment is intensified by large full-height windows that accentuate the feeling of contact with the water and let natural light flood in, while the freestanding furniture conveys a sense of lightness and the contours of the geometrical detailing have a unique style. Walnut wood is used throughout the yacht’s interiors in various ways: flame-colored and bold for the furniture, striped and softer for the walls, and ribbed for special accents. The special ribbing technique is also used to enrich and embellish the marble in the service areas. The parquet, which reprises the pale colorways, is skillfully blended with the other materials, from the ceilings to the furniture’s unusual back-painted glass tops, giving the setting a relaxed, smooth and elegant tone.
All the technical features are designed to be hidden by architectural details. One of many examples is the new Garvan audio system, which is made up of small loudspeakers integrated seamlessly into the ceiling that delivers high-quality sound. Ferretti Yachts 1000 extends over two decks with every comfort and can accommodate up to 10 guests in five cabins: the owner’s suite on the main deck and four guest cabins on the lower deck. Headroom in the main and lower deck areas exceeds two meters. Ferretti Yachts 1000 redefines the stern concept: 40 square meters of liveable space, on a par with a superyacht. It is a beach club in the true sense of the term, where direct access to the swim platform from the cockpit creates an outdoor wellness area in contact with the water: a new place of adventure and fun, where the owner can create their own experience in an unprecedented open space for socializing.
A revolutionary concept makes it easy to leave the water when the swim platform is submerged by opening up three steps on either side of the platform as it is lowered, continuing the stairway down from the cockpit. This design, developed entirely by the Engineering Department, is a Ferretti Group patent. Under the side steps leading up to the cockpit is another point of entry into the garage. This solution provides a convenient way to reach the garage without having to use the main door. The garage can accommodate a Williams Dieseljet 445 tender, a three-seater jet ski, and even two Seabobs, and may also be reached through an independent entrance on the starboard side. The space separating the salon from the night area on the lower deck is personalized with a curved smoked glass panel and a ribbed partition with an electric opening mechanism. When open, the partition reveals a bar counter and connects the dining area with the galley. The multifunctional galley, a highpoint on the new Ferretti Yachts 1000, is designed to satisfy every need.
A full ten square metres in size, it is fully appointed and can be fitted with any latest generation appliance: a double oven, a side-by-side fridge with a capacity of over 500 liters, a wine cooler, and a built-in coffee machine. The layout also includes a laundry and storage area forward of the galley, which provides access to the crew quarters and the raised helm station on the starboard side of the yacht. The owner’s suite is entered from the bow and has a spacious walk-in wardrobe with a small sofa. One of a kind, all the furnishings are custom made with contrasting pale leather tops. The double bed has a sepia-colored nubuck base highlighted by incorporated LED lights that create an unusual indirect lighting effect. The cream-colored bed linen by Gentili Mosconi is personalized for Ferretti Yachts. The TV is hidden behind the mirrored wall opposite the bed. Completing the furnishings is a Minotti armchair at the marble vanity top with a drawer. The epitome of fine workmanship and beauty, the generous full-beam bathroom skilfully combines marble and wood and is entered from the suite through two smoked glass doors. The suite’s parquet floor continues seamlessly into the bathroom, which has twin marble washbasins fully integrated into the same unit. On the right is a large shower complete with a bench fitted with a marble top, while on the right is the sanitary ware.
Ferretti Yachts 1000 offers an innovative take on the distribution of onboard flows: two staircases provide access to the 55-square-meter flybridge and from here to the bow area, ensuring its total privacy. The cockpit also provides access to the side walkways on the main deck leading to the salon and from here to the raised helm station and flybridge, making it easier for the owner, guests, and crew to move independently around the yacht. The flybridge helm station has two electrically adjustable Poltrona Frau pilot seats and two copilot seats on the opposite side. The dining area under the Nero Elena hardtop has an Eden model Roda sofa in teak, metal, and fabric customized for Ferretti Yachts, and two tables that can be joined together to form a large dining table with a steel base and a natural teak top featuring steel inserts and the Ferretti Yachts logo.
On the opposite side are a big double bar unit with a Corian top and built-in sink, an optional grill, and a refrigerator and storage area. The layout of the aft area not covered by the hardtop offers plenty of scope for personalized: this unit, it is furnished with three Piper model Roda sofas. The hardtop can be configured with a fixed glass insert, one that opens, or a system of adjustable glass slats that move aft to provide a large opening over the area beneath. Two symmetrical aft staircases lead up to the flybridge from the cockpit. Continuing forward, the spacious bow area is furnished symmetrically with sofas and dinettes that can also be transformed into a generous sun pad by joining the two up-down tables opposite each other with the sofas and covering them with fitted cushions.
