Italian shipyard Ferretti has announced that construction of the new Ferretti Yachts 920 is underway at is Cattolica shipyard in Rimini. The official launch of the new model is scheduled for September this year.

The new 28m yacht is the second project of the Italian shipyard for 2017 and follows on from the introduction of the Ferretti Yachts 780.

The Ferretti Yachts 920 has a totally new hull measuring 23.98m. The Italian builder says a major new feature on this flybridge model involves raising the height of the bow. “As well as giving the yacht an imposing presence on the water, this has allowed the addition of a wide-body master suite on the main deck,” reads a statement.

New layout

The forward space in the bow, in particular, is the largest ever for a Ferretti Yachts vessel of this size. The sun pad on the deckhouse leads into a dinette fitted with two forward-facing sofas, divided by a passageway, and a pair of sofas with adjustable backrests. This creates a large lounge, completed with coffee tables that can be protected and shaded by curtains upon request.

The stern area features a Submersible Hatch offering guests all the comfort of a spacious beach club and letting the crew handle the tender with ease. The Ferretti Yachts 920 can accommodate a tender measuring up to 4m in length.

The layout offers guests a full-beam double suite amidships worthy of a master cabin, and a second VIP suite on the port side with the exact same set-up. A third cabin with single beds completes the sleeping area.

The 4-cabin layout is organised into two en suite double cabins on the port side and two doubles with single beds on the starboard side.

Great attention is paid to the crew. In addition to the large dinette with laundry area, the captain can enjoy a private en-suite cabin, while the crew can relax in two double cabins with a bathroom fitted with a separate shower. A second layout is also available for this area with a captain’s cabin at the foredeck.

The Ferretti Yachts 920 is available with three different types of MTU engine. The standard model is powered by twin 12V 2000 M96L 1948 Mhp engines, which can be upgraded to twin 16V engines, respectively 2000 M86 generating 2217 Mhp and 2000 M96 with 2435 Mhp.

Performances is expected to be 23, 24 and 26 knots cruising speed and 26.5, 28 and 30 knots maximum speed, depending on the chosen engine configuration (preliminary data).

The boatyard can install zero-speed fins or Seakeeper stabilisers on board the Ferretti Yachts 920, upon request.
