- Özgür Töre
Ferretti Group participates the 42nd edition of the Cannes Yachting Festival which takes place from 10th to 15th September 2019 on the enchanting backdrop of the Côte d’Azur, with 3 world premières for the Ferretti Yachts, Wally and Riva brands, flanked by a fleet of 22 additional models.
The new models of the Group that will make their official debut on the Cannes Croisette are Ferretti Yachts 720 48 Wallytender and a new Riva yacht that will be revealed for the first time on the occasion of the Festival. These models will be accompanied by the new Custom Line 106 ’and Riva 90’ Argo presented in Venice and Miami respectively. In Cannes, Ferretti Group will also present the restyling of Ferretti Yachts 920 PURE.
FERRETTI YACHTS 720 – The comfort of a villa on the sea
Ferretti Yachts 720 gives birth to high-end sailing, an unprecedented experience of luxury, comfort, and well-being never seen before. Created in tandem by Ferretti Group’s Product Strategy Committee and Engineering Department, Ferretti Yachts 720 is the second project to sport an exterior designed by architect Filippo Salvetti in collaboration with Ferretti Group. The interior design, on the other hand, was created by the Group’s own architects and designers. Numerous elements immediately grab the attention, starting from the eye-catching aerodynamic design with its sporty and harmonious lines that have become a signature of the Ferretti Yachts fleet.
In keeping with the innovation process implemented on recent models, the external forward area stands out for its spacious, interchangeable living areas. The generous 30m² flybridge, in carbon fiber and composite materials, is surmounted by a hardtop. The aft swimming platform, a true terrace on the sea with convertible chaise longues and ample storage, can house a tender up to 3.95 meters in length.
The interiors of Ferretti Yachts 720 perfectly embody those concepts of well-being and home-like comfort that have become a hallmark of the brand. A large open-plan space is organized into three zones: the living area, the raised dining area, and the helm station integrated with the Naviop-Simrad LOOP systems and the electro-hydraulic steering system, developed in partnership with XENTA. The lower deck features a 4-cabin layout: the full-beam owner’s suite occupying a generous 20 square meters, two double cabins with separate beds and one VIP cabin.

CUSTOM LINE 106’ – A made-to-measure marvel
Custom Line 106’ embodies a new horizon in perfection, with meticulously clean-cut lines and large spaces steeped in simple sophistication, offering unparalleled comfort for the owner. It is a new addition to the planing range, a product of the partnership between the Francesco Paszkowski Design studio, the Ferretti Group's Engineering Department and the Product Strategy Committee. A minimalist design spans the interior and exterior, while the surfaces merge into each other in a display of architectural balance that breaks down the boundaries between the spaces. The large, interconnected floor surfaces (220 m² in total) are another distinguishing feature of the Custom Line 106’.
From the garage, a tender of up to 5.45 meters and a three-person jet ski can be lowered into the water. The forward area is even bigger than on other recent models: on the raised central island there are sofas and upholstered seating with reclining backrests and on the bow area there is a large sun pad spanning a total of 36 m² (387 square feet). There is also an additional garage for a Williams 2.80 Jet or a three-person jet ski.
The interiors of the main deck are bathed in natural light thanks to the large, full-height windows. The full-beam master cabin is in the foredeck and there are four standard cabins on the lower deck: two VIP cabins amidships and two twin ones forward, all with separate bathrooms. The entire interior design scheme in this first unit has been customized to cater perfectly to the requirements of the owner, in accordance with Custom Line’s famous tailor-made style.

This new generation of flybridge offers very generous spaces: on the one hand, it offers a new configuration of the cockpit, more than 30m², which boasts a new layout that enables it to be used not only for socializing or taking it easy, but also for dining; on the other hand, it offers a double master cabin that in addition to the full-beam 30m Master Suite located on the main deck includes the 20m² aft cabin on the lower deck, which is effectively a second full-beam master suite that makes guests feel like real owners.

48 Wallytender – Iconic design
Stylishly combining form with function, the 48 Wallytender retains the avant-garde design and thrilling performance that have made Wallytender a modern classic, but adds innovative new features. The most noticeable development is the large interior volume offering a complete suite. The challenge here was to raise the freeboard without losing the purity of the hull lines associated with all Wally yachts.
The standard fold-down bulwark sections increase the size of the swim platform, which is served by a retractable passarelle, also offered as a standard, that doubles as swim ladder. On deck, the layout has been designed to maximize the on-the-water enjoyment and let family and friends relax in convivial comfort by sinking into the generous seating and sunbeds, and enjoy alfresco dining thanks to the well-equipped galley unit. While under way, the aft seating can be configured to face forward, or to face the dining table when at anchor. A special anchoring system is hidden behind a flush-fitting hatch in the bow and can be operated at the touch of a button from the helm station. The trademark wraparound fender provides a practical docking solution instead of bulky fenders. The standard propulsion package comprises twin Volvo IPS 650 engines (totalling 960hp) for a top speed of 38 knots and a user-friendly joystick to simplify manoeuvring.
