At first glance, the 8x’s low profile makes her look like an express cruiser. Look closer: She has a flybridge. The teak steps leading to it blend into the curve of the portside wing, so in profile they are hidden from view. Those wings also stretch the yacht’s profile, seeming to add motion as the wings flow down and aft, looking windblown. The yacht’s sinuous design was a collaborative effort among designer Fulvio De Simoni, Ferretti’s Product Committee led by Piero Ferrari, and the builder’s engineering department.
