The Ferretti 870 is an 87-foot luxury motor yacht with a flybridge that was launched by renowned Italian boat-building firm Ferretti at the 2012 Cannes Boat Show. Designed in partnership with Studio Zuccon, the 870 impresses with super-sharp lines, shark’s gill windows, a dramatic cantilevered flybridge, cutaway gunwales and a shimmering bronzed roof above-helm. Winner of the title for “Best Semi-Customized Yacht” at the 2015 Robb Report Awards held in Shanghai, this Ferretti Yacht established new standards for supreme comfort and bespoke luxury among the Ferretti fleet.
Buyers can opt for an open-top flybridge or one with a fiberglass hard-top, and can expect teak flooring, full-beam dimensions and space at the rear for tender storage with a davit. Also available on this level is a jacuzzi surrounded by a sunpad, a sinuous S-shaped sofa for up to seven guests that surrounds an extending dining table, a forward loveseat and an open wet-bar with an icemaker and a grill. A port-side upper helm, meanwhile, comes fully equipped with everything required for elevated full-throttle piloting.
A plethora of outdoor space on the main deck means plenty of opportunity for sunbathing, socializing and enjoying cool coastal breezes while you relish fine meals and fine company. A triple-width sunpad on the foredeck is joined by a sheltered aft-cockpit to the stern that is lined in weather-proofed teak and comes with a walk-in wet-bar, while side steps lead down to a hydraulic bathing platform at the rear.
The main-deck salon is subject to customization, but early hulls boasted dark oak and walnut surrounds with Poltrona Frau leather furnishings, Cantalupi lighting and plush woolen carpets from GT Design. There is room to aft for an L-shaped sofa, a pair of integral armchairs, a home entertainment system and a glass-topped dining table for up to eight guests. You can also choose for an enclosed or open on-deck galley kitchen featuring Ernestomeda detailing, Bosch appliances, quartz work surfaces and GE fridge-freezer units. At the front of the main deck, you will find an enclosed pilothouse with superb visibility, a ZF Steercommand system, hydraulic stern thruster controls, a docking joystick and Simrad display panels.
Up to eight overnight guests will enjoy retreating downstairs each evening, where ample head clearance, capacious dimensions and oversized trapezoidal or mullioned hull windows give lower deck cabins an astonishing sense of boundless space. A pair of en-suite doubles are joined by an en-suite twin taking up the forward half of the lower-deck, while amidship there is a full-beam owner’s stateroom. This lavish room boasts deluxe carpeting, a king-sized bed, a work desk, a side sofa, a walk-in closet and a Capannoli-designed bathroom with couple’s sinks and a waterfall shower with a Bianchi e Fontana frosted glass door.
A pair of MTU 12V 2000 M94 1947MHP diesel engines prompt top speeds of around 31 knots and cruising speeds of 27 knots at half-loads. At a more comfortable pace of 10 knots, however, you can pilot this vessel for more than 1,000 nautical miles, more than enough for a horizon-busting journey from Cannes to Corsica or a return trip between Florida and the Bahamas.
