The Ferretti 700 is a 70-foot luxury motor yacht with a flybridge that was launched by the iconic Italian boat-building firm Ferretti at the 2015 Cannes Yachting Festival. This sleek mid-sized yacht immediately caught the eye with its assertive profile, wrap-around glazing, on-deck galley, elegant interior finish and a range of innovative design solutions. Crafted in partnership with naval stylists Studio Zuccon, the Ferretti 700 is the perfect option for warm-weather cruising with the whole family and lavish late-night entertaining alike.
Nothing but a fiberglass hard-top canopy separates you from the warm glow of the summer sun when up on the teak-lined flybridge, a place Ferretti Yacht owners love to frequent. The bridge is bookended at front and back by cocoon-style sunpads that offer dedicated sunbathers premier views over both bow and stern. Across the middle of the bridge, you will find a U-shaped ultra-leather dining sofa in Vulcan grey hugging a breakfast table, a wet-bar station with an ice-maker and an electric grill, as well as a comprehensive set of upper helm controls.
Al-fresco relaxation and leisure opportunities are just as impressive one level down, where you will discover a triple-width modular sunpad with headrests out on the foredeck. To the rear there is a partially sheltered aft-cockpit with an upholstered transom sofa and a fixed outdoor dining table topped with authentic teak where you will enjoy many a memorable meal with friends. To the stern there is a full-beam hydraulic bathing platform doubling as an integrated tender lift that can be diagonally lowered one meter into the sea to submerge or lift modern water toys.
Sliding glass doors and wrap-around windows that have been paired with cutaway bulwarks guarantee a sense of spaciousness and light across the free-flowing main deck salon, where you will also find an on-deck galley. To the rear of this white oak, bone-grey and chocolate-toned living space there are a pair of upholstered sofas that look like they could’ve been lifted from a deluxe Central Park condo. One step up and you will find a walk-in kitchen with innovative paperstone work surfaces, a stainless-steel double-sink and appliances from the likes of Miele and Bosch, sitting directly across from a dining sofa with a tempered glass breakfast table. A starboard side main-deck helm station with a skipper’s door will delight enthusiastic pilots with its wealth of instrumentation, not least Side Power thruster controls, Simrad display panels, VHF radio and power-steering.
A classic three-room and three-head layout on the lower-deck affords each of your six overnight guests the sort of space required to really stretch out and relax. Plush carpeting underfoot, suede wall panels, mirrored surfaces, trapezoidal hull windows and plenty of head clearance is more than enough to entice you down onto this level even on sunny days, while en-suite bathrooms feature grey oak cabinets, ceramic oyster-shell sinks and enclosed waterfall shower cubicles. The pick of the bunch down here is certainly the full-beam owner’s room, where a king-sized bed, a side sofa and masses of storage await, though the VIP double to the bow gives it a run for its money. You can also add a fourth twin room on this level, though at the expense of losing generous proportions elsewhere.
A pair of MAN V8 1200MHP diesel engines help this yacht to achieve top speeds of 32 knots, while at high-end cruising speeds of 28 knots you can expect a range of around 300 nautical miles. A warped modified-V hull with spray rails and a 12-degree dead-rise aft is an efficient operator while accelerating, and provides plenty of natural balance on the turn.
