The Ferretti 510 is a 52-foot motor yacht with a flybridge that was produced by legendary Italian boat-building firm Ferretti between the years of 2008 and 2012. Designed in collaboration with naval stylists Studio Zuccon, this mid-sized Ferretti cruiser is the perfect option for discerning buyers who require a stylish, spacious and family-friendly vessel. Bold layout arrangements, a relatively broad beam, a fine bow, cresting wave side windows and superb attention to detail throughout ensure that the Ferretti 510 remains a popular option on the used and charter markets to this day.
The low-slung flybridge benefits from a radar arch placed to the very rear to ensure that nothing comes between your guests and the shimmering summer sun. Up here there is a wet-bar console with a Kenyon grill, an L-shaped leather sofa to the rear and a forward sunpad snugly nestled up against a Venturi-style tinted windscreen. Also on offer on this level is a port-side upper helm fully equipped with everything required for al-fresco piloting, as well as an easily assembled Bimini cover for additional shade.
This yacht has been designed for lovers of the outdoors, and a foredeck sunpad with room for a trio of picnickers is likely to prove a hit with those who want to snap glamorous Instagram pics. At the rear there is a capacious aft-deck with a pair of transom love seats and room for a dining table, while side steps lead down to a fixed, full-beam bathing platform that comes equipped with a hydraulic davit for stowage and lifting of a Williams jet tender.
Ferretti have boldly placed the galley to starboard aft in the salon on this model, recognizing that most buyers in the warmer climes prefer to dine out on the aft-deck or up on the flybridge. Sliding glass doors and a retractable window allow for easy food and drink access outside and entice those much-needed summer breezes to sweep through the salon to keep it fresh and airy. The galley boasts Corian or quartz work surfaces, teak-lined cabinets, a four-zone hob, a combination oven, an icemaker, a fridge-freezer, vinyl flooring and plenty of storage space. Thanks to this yacht’s generous beam of over 16 foot the salon never feels cramped despite the presence of a walk-in galley, and there is room in here for a diamond-stitched leather dining sofa that surrounds an extending breakfast table and a starboard side loveseat. Up front the main helm comes with Raymarine instrumentation and display screens, VHF radio, electric bow thruster controls, trim tabs and Mitsubishi ARG stabilizer switches.
Nobody quite does interior design like the Italians, and the lower-deck spaces offer a tasteful and elegant place to both unwind and grab a peaceful night’s sleep. There are three cabins for up to six overnight guests down here, all lined in plush carpeting and authentic timber with recessed mood lighting and porthole or mullioned windows. A starboard side twin is joined by an en-suite VIP double by the bow, while an amidship owner’s room features full-beam dimensions, a pair of hanging closets, a queen-sized bed, bedside cabinets, space for a work-desk and a bathroom with a waterfall shower, a ceramic sink and a bidet.
A pair of 800MHP MAN R6 diesel engines provide the Ferretti 510 with top speeds of around 31 knots, while at swift cruising speeds of 27 knots you can expect a range of around 270 nautical miles.
