But of course, numbers alone can never fully portray the breadth of complexity and imagination that is the Ferretti Yachts 720.
The exterior of the yacht is the masterpiece of renowned Italian architect Filippo Salvetti, who created a standout yacht with clean, taut lines and poised shapes. She is a pleasure to behold at all angles, but function is not neglected either. Her living spaces are interchangeable for optimum utility. For example, the double sun pads at her bow can be transformed into a central dining area. It’s not solely a dinner occasion either, as carbon fibre poles can support a bimini to keep diners in the shade during the day.
Another innovation to note – that we know prospective owner will love – is the settee at the swim platform, cleverly hidden via a hatch. This keeps the aft of the yacht clean, but without eschewing usability. What’s more, the swim platform can be electro-hydraulically extended as well.
No explanation of her exterior virtues will be complete without highlighting her flybridge. This vantage is made of carbon fibre and composite materials to keep the centre of gravity low. It is more than just a bridge too because at 31m², there is space for a second helm, and another lounging area that faces aft.
Finally, amidships is a complete central dinette – you’ll find a bar with a kitchenette, refrigerator, sink, and storage spaces. In short, she has all the accoutrements one would ever need to be a perfectly convivial host.
The cockpit is a special place. Owners have the option to seal it off for some privacy, or open the glass door laterally to unify the area with an alfresco lounge, creating a large and welcoming space. This feature is a first in Ferretti yachts. The lounge at the cockpit is already a notable area, at 27m², and features ample headroom too. This means that a table for 8 can be had here, and at the same time also have sufficient room for foot traffic. Forward of this area is the main helm station that is situated starboard-side.
Movement into the lower deck happens via the stairways next to the helm station, and here you’ll find 4 cabins. Even here, the yacht is no miser as headroom exceeds 2 metres. Amidships is the owner’s suite, which is situated on a dedicated level and spans the length of the beam for a total of 20m². Interestingly, Ferretti learned from their other yachts and has chosen to place a walk-in closet and a bathroom (which features two basins, and a separate head and shower) behind this suite. This gives greater separation between this suite, and the engine room, and thusly, greater comfort for the user.
Moving on, there are two double cabins as well, each with two separate beds. They share a bathroom that doubles as a day head. Finally, the VIP cabin is located foredeck, with a separate head and shower. A craft of this size may sometimes have a crew, so their quarters are accessible via a different stairway, just below the one to the flybridge. Here you will have amenities like a laundry room, a double cabin, and a separate head and shower.
Yachts have infinite personalisation, so too does the Ferretti Yachts 720. However, to facilitate buyers who may find that daunting, the shipyard offers a choice between two major design themes: light or dark. On this particular vessel, the light theme has been chosen, and one of the distinctive design elements is the lounge sideboard. Here, it is finished in deep walnut with oblique stripes.
We will end with this. Two MAN V12 engines featuring 1400 hp each will bring her to a top speed of 32 knots. A smaller configuration is available too: two MAN V8s with 1200 hp each. More importantly, she is designed to be compatible with two Seakeepers that will ensure optimum comfort and stability at speed or at rest.
As we have mentioned above, a chance to view one of Italy’s finest is a rare opportunity not to be missed. The next best thing to exploring this acclaimed vessel personally is by checking out this virtual tour that we have prepared for you. Enjoy, and we will be delighted to answer any and all queries.
