On the occasion of its 50th Anniversary in 2018, Ferretti Yachts decided to present “a gift to itself and the rest of the nautical world;” the Ferretti Yachts 670. The sleek 67 feet (20.24 metres) yacht elevates to the next level the standards of style, comfort and performance that have always defined Ferretti Yachts’ DNA.
The product of a partnership between Ferretti Group’s Engineering Department and its Product Strategy Committee, the 670 is the first Ferretti Yacht to feature an exterior designed in collaboration with renowned architect Filippo Salvetti. The design, characterised by precise and stretched lines that provide the yacht with an elegant and sportive look, is typical of all the recent Ferretti Yachts creations but with some significant new features.
On the stern, there is a large swimming platform with an H+B vertical tender lift capable of accommodating a 3.45 m jet tender. Among the distinctive features in this area are two storage compartments: one in the upper part and one in the lower part of the stern sofa. A Seabob can be kept in the latter.
The outside fore area has an ample living area, thanks to innovative space optimisation, and is bordered by three spacious sofas that face one another. The entire area can be covered by a bimini top. Optionally, two dining tables can be installed along the side sofas facing each other, which can, in turn, be converted into relaxation surfaces so as to transform the whole area into one big sun pad. A glass door in the cockpit opens up onto the main deck lounge, with its two beautiful facing sofas, upholstered in Zimmer + Rohde fabric, and centralised coffee tables. The dining area features an open-plan kitchen and dining table.
The 24 square metre flybridge is one of the most spacious in its class. It can be fitted with free-standing furniture, while in the central area, to the left, is a fully equipped bar that faces an entertainment area with a C-shaped sofa and a dining table. Further forward is a second control station and then generous sea-facing sun pad. Ferretti Yachts offers three different layouts for this flybridge: a standard open version, a version featuring a roll bar for satellite systems with built-in Bimini top, and finally a hard-top version.
Below deck, owners can choose either a 3 or 4-cabin layout. In the 3-cabin layout, the 18 square-metre owner’s suite is located amidships which includes a study that can double as a private space, a walk-in closet, and an ample bathroom. The layout is designed to offer better soundproofing against the noise from the engine room. On the starboard side, there is a double cabin, while the foredeck is home to the VIP cabin. Both have a bathroom and a separate shower. The study next to the owner’s cabin can be converted to a fourth cabin. There is also a crew cabin with bathroom with easy access to the cockpit.
The decor is characterised by linear modules and wood strips, with contrasting light and dark hues. Precious woods abound, with opaque surfaces for ceilings and floors and glossy ones for the furniture. Below deck, there is walnut essence on the bulkheads, stripped wood furnishings both glossy and opaque, lacquered surfaces and nubuck upholsteries. Beds, drawers and bookshelves present a refined leather effect. A number of metallic elements in the lounge and bronze-glass details in the owner’s suite provide a stunning visual impact. Headrooms feature the generous use of Calacatta Gold by Florim.
Designer luxury brands featured on board include Lealpell, Dedon, Disenia, Casamance and Perennials.
On the technical side, the 670 is fitted with twin MAN engines rated at 1200 mHP as standard, giving it a top speed of 32 knots and a cruising speed of 28 knots. The MAN 1000 mHP engines are available as an alternative. The stabilisation package is available as an option with two gyroscopic Seakeeper stabilisers designed to provide utmost stability while cruising or when docked.
The helm station is equipped with integrated Naviop-Simrad instrumentation found on larger models such as the 780, 850 and 920. For the first time in this length-class, the integration of a single innovative multi-display interface makes it possible to monitor all the main functions, not just from the main helm station but also from the flybridge.
The state-of-the-art electro-hydraulic steering system is developed in collaboration with XENTA. Among its many benefits is greater steering comfort thanks to the effortless handling of the helm and maximum efficiency when turning, in any sea conditions. The steering system can be integrated with a joystick package, and paired with a powerful proportional thruster, which includes the DOCKING and TILLER/CRUISE functions. An innovative Dynamic Positioning System (DPS) for shaft-line propulsion is also present.
