Aphrodite among the superyachts: Ferretti 650
Ferretti Yachts always strive for stringent high standards, they never build second-rate yachts and they continuously embark on projects that will allure you in an instant. The aftermath of these revealed principals is the new Ferretti 650. Ferretti 650, Aphrodite among the superyachts, is developed in collaboration between Ferretti Group’s Marketing Department, Advanced Yachts Technology and design, Studio Zuccon International Project and Product Strategy Committee. Needless to say, all of them gained their legitimate place in the world of superyachts.
Why is this beauty so attractive? First and foremost, she captivates you with her new stirring styling encompassing her new aerodynamic flybridge on the outer silhouette and a new hull window arrangement. Alongside these features comes a new brand lifting stern platform which reveals ingenuity of the Ferretti Group & Co. These traits and others that will be mentioned in the further part of the text, mark a new era and the first series below 70 feet. The Ferretti 650 reviews have been fantastic and people around the world have been intrigued by this beauty.
Ferretti’s first yacht shorter than 70 feet in length is called the 650. It’s precisely 65 feet long (19.67 meters) while her maximum beam is 71 feet and 2 inches (5.25 meters) enabling 18 people on board. The yacht’s contours are defined by an aerodynamic flybridge together with gracefully shaped curves of the yacht which are linked at the aft. The new fiberglass embellishing elements that "cut" across her superstructure silhouette give an additional flair to the outer styling as well. Another unique feature is that all of the three cabins below deck are all equipped with large windows. The Ferretti Group pioneered in installing windows in the hull while making both the glass and the frame strong enough to support the constant pressure. These hull windows represent their ingenuity and confirmation of their expertise since they achieved it without compromising their benchmark RCD category "A" classification. But this time, they have gone a step further. They have created fabulous integral one-piece windows without endangering panoramic scenery, breath of fresh air, daylight or already mentioned "A" classification.
When it comes to the engines, speed, and performance, the Ferretti 650 possesses two Caterpillar CAT C18 extremely dependable engines with the horsepower of 1015. The cruising speed of the yacht is 27 knots and her maximum speed is 30.5 knots. The cruising range of this beauty is 290 nautical miles. But this is not all. You have an option of larger engines with a horsepower of 1150. These engines allow you to speed things up, so you can reach a top speed of up to 33 knots. Cruising is also different with these engines enabling you to cruise at 30 knots for 9 hours (with full tanks). The skippering can be relieved with an optional joystick maneuvering system and you can also ask for gyroscopic zero-speed stabilizers. Having this additional technology on the yacht will make your onboard cruising time more pleasant, especially for those who are prone to motion sickness.
One of the most consequential traits is mentioned above, the new lifting stern platform. With just the press of a button, the platform can be submerged into the water for a full meter, thus efficiently launching and recovering the large tender. This way, a 3.2-meter long tender does not have to be tucked away in the garage or on the flybridge giving some more space on the yacht. This is Ferretti’s secret weapon since it allows the absence of the machinery near your head while you are lying in your bed. Furthermore, the machinery is protected by soundproof bulkheads delivering complete silence and peace. Ferretti Group certainly made a great effort for complete sound isolation.
The flybridge is appealingly spacious and is appropriately furnished with sunbed, seats, a wet bar area and a table surrounded by another C-shaped seat. If you want, there is an option of integrating a bronze hardtop for this flybridge. Consequently, the flybridge is transformed into a sunbathing area and a lounge with the command pedestal too.
Ferretti Group interior designers are Italian magicians in the world of yachts. Needless to say, the interiors of the Ferretti 650 are stunning and charming as usual. The interiors are bathed with a color scheme combo of ivory with black accents and silver-grey. Exquisite stained wood "Silver Oak" adds a special touch to it. The cockpit is supplied with a comfortable aft sofa, an appropriate dining table, and movable chairs. You can approach the cockpit from both port and starboard sides, steps that are built into the hull or via the swim platform. The saloon and cockpit are linked with an open galley located on the starboard side which is opened on all sides. If you wish, the galley can be enclosed by bulwarks. The saloon sitting space is flabbergasting due to the windows position at just the right height and wonderful scenery. The yacht comes in several versions like the "TaiHe Dan" version for the East-Asian Market. It is characterized by the luxury architecture of the Forbidden City in Beijing.
Three double cabins and three separate heads are below deck. The master bedroom is situated amidship with a pretty big walk-in wardrobe, a full-beam bathroom with separate shower and bidet plus sofa. Towards the bow, you reach the guest rooms on the starboard. They contain twin beds and separate head. The VIP cabin is located at the extreme bow with own separate shower and private bathroom.
The Ferretti 650 is an improved and upgraded model of the 620 luxury yacht. Stefano De Vivo, Ferretti Group’s Chief Commercial Officer explained: "We strongly believe in this yacht. The Ferretti Yachts 650 is a contemporary yacht which skillfully combines the sober and timeless charm of all Ferretti Yachts crafts with excellent performances in terms of speed and range, as well as outstanding technical solutions and the highest possible safety standards. The user-friendliness of all onboard equipment goes hand in hand with impressive comfort and livability solutions, capable of meeting the needs of the most demanding owners all over the world."
