The Ferretti 680 is a 69-foot luxury motor yacht with a flybridge that was produced by the iconic Italian yacht-building brand Ferretti between the years of 1999 and 2006. Crafted in partnership with naval stylists Studio Zuccon, the 680 bears a distinctive sharp profile with a flared flybridge, cresting wave side windows, a fine bow and an aerodynamic roll-bar to guarantee that this vessel stands out from the crowd even to this day.
At the rear of the al-fresco flybridge that is room to store a large jet tender alongside the Besenzoni davit, though this space can also be fitted with a sunpad instead. Across the central portion of the flybridge, and benefiting from an optional Bimini roof, sits a C-shaped leather sofa hugging a bespoke cocktail table, as well as a wet-bar station with a Gaggenau grill, an optional icemaker and chilled storage. At the front of the bridge there is a port-side upper helm and a full-beam forward sunpad nestled up against a Venturi-style windscreen.
A double sunpad out on the foredeck rounds out this yacht’s appeal for those who like to soak up the rays, while a sheltered aft-cockpit to stern features a transom sofa with a breakfast table and side steps down to a full-beam swimming platform with a passarelle.
Lavish interiors boast an undeniable Italian flair, and feature rounded surfaces and furnishings in glazed cherrywood, glossy teak, cream leather and pillow-soft carpeting with brushed metallic accents. A U-shaped sofa to starboard sits directly across from a curvaceous cabinet unit with room for a home entertainment system to port, all superbly well-lit by the light that streams in through hinged doors to aft and cresting-wave side glazing. A couple of steps up takes you to the dining lounge, where up to four guests can enjoy delicious meals prepared in the semi-enclosed galley to port. Granite work surfaces, a stainless-steel sink, a four-zone hob, a Miele oven and under-counter fridge-freezer units give this kitchen all the appliances required for extended voyages. At the front of the main deck sits a leather and walnut-lined helm dashboard equipped with thruster controls, a joystick, hydraulic power steering, VHF radio, Garmin or Raymarine electronics and excellent visibility.
There is room for up to eight overnight guests down on the lower deck, where an en-suite twin is joined by a bunk berth for two and an en-suite VIP double to the bow with a skylight. A full-beam, amidship owner’s stateroom features a chaise-longue, a full-height corner closet, a timber work desk, a queen-sized bed, bedside cabinets, a wall-mounted HD TV, mirrored wall panels, lozenge-shaped hull glazing and a spacious granite or marble-clad bathroom with a shower. Rooms on this level feature double port-hole windows, recessed mood lighting, deluxe carpeting and teak accents.
A pair of MAN 1360MHP diesel engines offer top speeds of up to 36 knots at half-loads, with comfortable cruising speeds of around 30 knots. At a lower cruising pace the Ferretti 680 enjoys an enviable range of over 305 nautical miles, more than enough for long trips spent island-hopping across pristine coastal waters.
