EXPERIENCE
A ROBUST SEAFARING TRADITION

Ferretti Yachts came into being in 1968 when brothers Alessandro and Norberto Ferretti created the first nautical division of the family business, then a specialist luxury car dealership. Three years later, in 1971, at the Genoa Boat Show, their first model, a wooden motor-sailer, was greeted with great acclaim. This 10-metre yacht, equipped with both sails and an engine, was particularly comfortable and safe for leisure cruising. Their intuitive flair enabled Ferretti Yachts to figure on the list of the world’s most prestigious boatyards.

In 1975, the Ferretti brothers decided to abandon cars altogether in order to commit themselves fully to the nautical world and the next decade saw the great leap forward – the switch from sail to engine power. In 1982 the first Ferretti motor-yacht made its debut and the company began producing boats for sport fishing, with an open and flying bridge, bearing witness to all the revolutionary changes that have transformed today’s boat-building industry: the stern bridge, the up-and-over salon windows that open onto the cockpit and the internal corridor from the salon to the flying-bridge.

The 1990s were dedicated to research and development in nautical engineering with the start-up of the in-house engineering division and winning performances in offshore races. Subsequent years have seen the range increase to its current size, but the story doesn’t end here, as there is constant renewal with state-of-the-art design solutions.

INNOVATION
OUR CONSTANT COMMITMENT

Ferretti has always had, as part of its DNA, a vocation for research, innovation and a perfect combination of the latter with design, to guarantee high-end space functionality and comfort on board. This is why - in 1989 - the Engineering Division, a centre specialising in new craft design as standard and in the search for new materials, equipped with cutting-edge technologies and unique in the yachting industry, not only in Italy. The experience accrued over the years thanks to Offshore competitions has allowed us to transfer the results of technological research conducted for sports competition to standard production.

Over the years Ferretti has introduced innovative solutions which have shaped pleasure yachting worldwide: the up-and-over window between salon and cockpit, the underwater discharge and F-tdr (Ferretti trim and drag reduction) systems. Most recently, mention should be made of the air bag for anchor chains, the hull windows, XFT technology (Cross Fibre Technology), monitoring and control systems (NaviOp and Gi8), as well as of the revolutionary ARG (Anti Rolling Gyros): this is a gyroscopic device which, using the movement of a rotor, substantially reduces rolling on yachts. Comfort on board is ensured by maximum attention paid to noise emissions: indeed Ferretti is the first shipyard to have certified its craft according to the ISO14509 standard two years before it entered into force.

COMFORT
AN IRREPLACEABLE ELEMENT

For Ferretti Yachts, comfort is a vocation, underlying all choices in terms of design or style. Comfort means safety. Ferretti Yachts, indeed, is fully compliant with the ECC 94/25 Directive, as well as having all its yachts “Ocean” certified as class “A”, which guarantees hull strength and safety under any sailing condition, a unique feature for a craft range between 16 metres and 29 metres. Safety also means the ergonomic engine room which allows for access to equipment and engine maintenance with the utmost ease, very strong tanks, to avoid any kind of leak and placed in the midship for a better trim of the craft, a carefully installed electric system to avoid any possible default, a display for immediate control of all on-board functions; easy steering is ensured by solutions which make it possible to steer and moor with extreme ease and precision.
