Ferretti Yachts has offered a glimpse on board the first unit in its Ferretti 860 series, which made its debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2022 last week.

The Ferretti 860 is the third yacht developed in collaboration with Filippo Salvetti, who designed the vessel’s exterior, and Ideaeitalia, who created the interior concept. The 26.95 metre flybridge superyacht was launched in June, just eight months after the project was initially announced.

Naval architecture, design and engineering come from the Strategic Product Committee chaired by Piero Ferrari and the Ferretti Group Engineering Department.

The all-Italian design team embodies the “Made in Italy” style for which Ferretti is known, according to the yard. Art-Deco curves and glass fashion plates define her profile, giving her a sporty, yet elegant silhouette.

She was commissioned by an Italian owner who opted for the “Classic” interior package, which revolves around a palette of warm tones, dark colours and striking contrasts. Full-height windows ensure a light and bright interior with uninterrupted vistas from the main saloon and dining area.

Opportunities for al fresco living are found across the yacht, with a large stern area that comprises a cockpit and beach club area which together span 30 square metres. A foredeck lounge covers 11 square metres and is fitted as a lounge with an oversized sofa, reclining seating and optional shading.

For the first time on a Ferretti Yacht, the 860 offers the option of a Jacuzzi on the flybridge. Guests can also make use of a bar, dining area for eight and a hard top which comes in three separate configurations.

Inside, the design team has placed increased focus on comfort and conviviality. New solutions aim to reduce vibrations and noise and a “Just Like Home” design ethos dictates the styling throughout.

The master saloon spans 27 square metres and is adjoined by a galley available in two configurations: open or separated by a partition. In either configuration, the galley can be accessed internally from the main deck or from the exterior.

On the port side, a helical staircase leads down to the lower deck, while a door leads to the semi-raised pilothouse.

Accommodation is provided across four double cabins, all with en suite bathrooms. A full-beam owner’s cabin is located amidships and features ample storage including a walk-in wardrobe, and a generous bathroom.

The first Ferretti Yachts 860 model is fitted with the optional configuration of two MAN V12 engines, delivering provisional speeds of 27 knots cruising, topping out at 32 knots.

The Ferretti 860 was joined by four other debuts from the Ferretti Group at the Cannes Yachting Festival, including the Custom Line 140 and the Riva 102 Corsaro Super.
