Ferretti Yachts has unveiled plans for its new 850, designed in collaboration with Studio Zuccon International Project. The yacht will debut in September.

"The Ferretti Yachts 850 is one of two brand-new models that Ferretti Yachts is presenting in 2016, the second being the new 45-footer," said Chief Commercial Officer Stefano De Vivo. "The Ferretti Yachts 850 plays a key role in the evolution of our range. It features captivating design and bold performance, but also seductive interiors, comparable to those one would find in a sumptuous loft apartment."

Exterior lines are inspired by the existing Ferretti Yachts 800, but the 850 definitely has a look more in keeping with the current trend toward serious natural light. The smaller yacht's trapezoidal hull windows have been replaced with a single glazed window that spans the entire superstructure. Ferretti says this design element will, going forward, distinguish the brand's largest yachts from those smaller than 80 feet length overall.

“The Ferretti Yachts 850 plays a key role in the evolution of our range.”

Other noteworthy features on the Ferretti Yachts 850 include a flybridge with optional hardtop; a transom door that folds out to create a beach club that can be submerged for swimming or tender operations; and interior furniture and accessories designed in conjunction with Italy's Minotti.

Owners can choose one of two galley layouts: forward of the helm and away from guest areas (European style) or closer to the main guest space with a cocktail bar (American style).

Standard accommodations: a master, a pair of VIPs and a twin-berth stateroom for the kids. All are ensuite. Two crew cabins are in the bow.

Power options: Standard engines are twin 1,800 mhp MAN V12 engines that reportedly produce a cruising speed of 26 knots and a top end of 29 knots. The optional 1,900-mhp MAN V12s are said to edge those numbers up to 27 knots and 31 knots. Seakeeper gyroztabilizers or at-anchor fins are also options.
