THE AMERICAN PREMIÈRES AT THE 59TH FORT LAUDERDALE INTERNATIONAL BOAT SHOW
FERRETTI YACHTS 670 – the flybridge that enhances spaces and livability
Symbol of an evolution of the brand in the sign of tradition, Ferretti Yachts 670 maintains the sleek lines and the clean
forms of the latest models, with an excellent updated design of the spaces, for a perfect mix of socialisation and
independence. A product of the collaboration between the Group’s Product Strategy Committee and Engineering
Department, it is the first Ferretti Yachts vessel with exterior design created in partnership with architect Filippo Salvetti,
while the interiors are exclusively the work of the Group’s in-house architects and designers. Characterised by excellent
optimisation of the space, both interior and exterior, in its 67 feet (20.24 metres) the 670 features solutions typical of
much larger vessels. These include the large flybridge with its area of 25 square metres that makes it one of the most
competitive yachts in its category, and the bow that features a living space that can be converted into a spacious
relaxation area, a true innovation in terms of liveability and comfort.
PERSHING 9X – the maxi coupe that combines luxury and technology
The second chapter of the new “Generation X” is a maxi coupé with aggressive lines and sumptuous comfort. At the
forefront also in materials, the main construction material of the new 9X is carbon, together with fiberglass and epoxy
resin. The result is a performing yacht at sea, very rich in settings and equipped with numerous technological
innovations that offer a unique navigation experience and a practical maneuver, even in confined water, unthinkable on
over 90 feet yachts. The prestigious and ten-year collaboration with Poltrona Frau gave life to a magnificent design
object: a dashboard worthy of a super sport car, a stylistic and technical masterpiece in a masterpiece yacht, ready to
amaze the world.
