New design solutions and two interior moods: the new Ferretti Yachts 500 is a versatile space that combines the dynamic exterior lines with a new interior design.
The project starts from the strategic 50-foot segment to renew the entire range, all the way up to the new flagship of the brand’s fleet. The exteriors follow the philosophy inaugurated with the latest models in the range, with some new features, such as the aerodynamic design and the sleek, streamlined shapes.
Just Like Home
The completely renewed interior design embraces the values expressed by the “Just Like Home” philosophy: comfort, Italian style, timeless design and artisan craftsmanship. Clean geometries and essential elements give a feeling of discrete luxury that is particularly highlighted in the furnishings and in the combination of the color choices. The interiors are a collection of the best Made In Italy excellence, starting with the furnishings: Graniti Fiandre, Galassia and OML for the bathroom, Colombo handles, Cadorin parquet, Pellini lacquered Venetian blinds, Paffoni sink taps. And the Gentili Mosconi Home Collection of fabrics for Ferretti Yachts makes the onboard experience even more comfortable.
Ferretti Yachts 500 reveals two souls thanks to the new interior moods: Classic with its warm tones, and Contemporary inspired by Mediterranean colors. The Classic mood is dominated by dark oak, combined with glossy and matte lacquers in shades of black and white. Brown and beige fabrics and leathers combine with shiny nickel and dark marble-effect stoneware in the bathrooms, for a timeless style. The dominant wood of the Contemporary mood is oak in its different shades of sand on bulkheads, furniture and parquet, and in white shades for the glossy and matte lacquers. Glass, polished steel, fabrics in shades of gray, light blue and beige are artfully combined to create a contemporary environment.
Outside: design meets function
Ferretti Yachts 500 keeps some characteristic elements of the family feeling with the larger vessels, such as the stern swimming platform: when it’s submerged, steps are revealed for safe access to the sea, and the convenience of the latest-generation optional lift system makes it suitable for the whole family.
The yacht also features plenty of aft storage space, combining design and functionality. The dual side access leads up to the cockpit, organized with a structural sofa aft, facing a table. This zone can be used as a relaxation area or as a dining area, with the possibility to accommodate up to ten people, while the reclining backrest makes it possible to enjoy a convertible lounge zone, made even more spacious by the possibility of transforming the table into a seat with cushions.
On the flybridge, the environment is suitable for all situations: an aft dining area features a C-shaped sofa that extends along the back on both sides, with a table in front that can be extended to make room for more guests. In the starboard bow area, a huge sun pad features a double backrest for the maximum comfort, while to the side is the outside steering station, with a dedicated pilot’s chair. All living area can be shadowed under a bimini. Forward is another area for relaxation, with a large central sun pad with reclining backrests for a full-optional beach area.
Inside: space and natural light
The glass door leads to the lounge, where the strategic position of the galley makes it possible to serve the cockpit as well, also thanks to the tilting glass window. The main deck features a spacious lounge area, with two sofas and a coffee table that can be transformed into a dining table.
The helm station on the main deck introduces a new instrument panel design. On the lower deck as well, Ferretti 500 offers a wide array of choices to the owner and their guests, with two different layouts: one features a large master cabin and a VIP cabin, both with private bathroom and a small laundry; the other includes one master cabin, one VIP cabin, and a double cabin with two twin beds and two bathrooms with separate shower.
The large windows in the bathrooms make it possible to fully enjoy the natural light. The full-beam master cabin, situated amidships, features new design solutions, including a full-width mirror on the bed side bulwark, which gives further breadth and spaciousness to the environment.
Generous storage spaces complete the design. An area with TV up to 43’’ is also at the owner’s disposal. The washbasin top and shower walls of the master bathroom are covered in high-quality materials. The other cabins reflect the design of the master cabin in their colours and materials, exclusively Made in Italy.
Ferretti Yachts 500 installs twin Cummins QSB 6.7 engines delivering 550 hp, for a top speed of 30 knots and a cruising speed of 25 knots. The new yacht will also be equipped with optional gyroscopic stabilizers to guarantee the maximum stability at anchor and during navigation.
