The Ferretti Group is scheduled to feature the Ferretti Yachts 850, Pershing 5X and the Rivamare at the 2016 Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show.
The Ferretti Yachts 850 is a new model with a single glazed window that cuts across the entire superstructure. The flybridge has an optional fore-and-aft hardtop over the raised pilothouse. One deck down, the transom has a door that opens to become a beach area, with the ability to lower the space right into the water. Interior design includes elements by Minotti, with four en suite guest staterooms. Top speed is 29 knots.
The Pershing 5X is the first “X Generation” yacht from the Italian builder. Her cockpit is protected by aerodynamic wings that can be separated from, or joined to, the salon. On the main deck, a sliding glass sunroof is standard and a second, fixed-glass section is optional. The interior layout is also open to owner requests, including the option of changing a forward dinette area into a guest stateroom or crew cabin. Top speed is 45 knots.
The Rivamare has a windscreen made of five double-curved, laminated crystal-glass sections in a stainless-steel frame. At the stern, a hatch with built-in mahogany steps swings open to create a beach club with sunpads. A retractable Bimini top shades the cockpit, and the pilothouse design is inspired by sports cars, with a carbon-fiber control panel. Top speed is 40 knots.
