Ferretti Lines Up 650 Debut

25 February 2014

Ferretti Yachts is to launch its latest model, Ferretti Yachts 650, at boat shows in Autumn, as it seeks to update its model range of luxury yachts below 70 feet.

The 650 is the first in a series of models that Ferretti plans to renovate. The yacht has been redesigned using the Ferretti 620, one of Ferretti's best sellers, as inspiration, in particular its waterline and layout below deck. It features the same sporty design and typical side handrails that can also be found on the Ferretti Yachts 690 and the new 750.

Drawing on the latest technologies, a key selling point is its new tender lift, which is capable of lifting an over-3-meter-long tender, and can be lowered into the water by a meter with respect to its original position, thereby allowing the vessel to be davit-free. This boosts the amount of living space on the flybridge, and allows for a large aft storage compartment for small water toys and other equipment. This tender lift has already been rolled out on Ferretti's most recent launches, like the new Ferretti Yachts 750.

Following the acquisition of a 75 percent stake in Ferretti by the China's Weichai Group in January 2012, Ferretti has confirmed that it will offer an alternative design for the 650 drawing on Chinese influences, TaiHe Dian.

The yacht includes three cabins and three separate heads, benefiting from increased brightness thanks to new glazing. The design has been drawn up to provide further sound isolation benefits throughout the living quarters. The interior of the yacht has been extensively restyled by Centro Stile's team of architects and designers, incorporating new colors and materials.

Ferretti has decided to go back to installing engines produced by Caterpillar. The boat is equipped with a pair of CAT C18, which enable a cruising speed of 27 knots and a maximum speed of 30.5 knots, which may be upgraded to more powerful engines on request. Based on preliminary data, Ferretti expects that the boat (with the standard engines) will have a range of 275 nautical miles at maximum speed, and 290 nautical miles at cruising speed.
