The Ferretti Yachts 1000 is not just the Italian builder’s largest vessel in length overall at 98 feet, 10 inches. It’s also the beamiest at 22 feet, 4 inches. The yacht’s wide-body design means more living space, inside and outside, than many motoryachts in this size range.
The full-beam main-deck master stateroom has a full-beam en suite head forward of the berth, with double sinks separating the toilet and shower. The master also has a walk-in closet, and a desk/vanity is forward and to port of the berth.
Belowdecks, there are four equally sized double-berth guest staterooms, all en suite and facing athwartships, two to port and two to starboard. All the way forward are three cabins accommodating up to five crew.
On the main deck and amidships, there is formal dining for up to 10 guests at a table to port, with views out the sole-to-ceiling windows flanking the table. If owners choose, the windows can be built to open for salt air and cross breezes. The 107-square-foot galley is forward of the table, and it can be partitioned off for privacy during formal affairs.
While the salon has an L-shaped settee, two ottomans and a table abaft the formal dining space in the standard layout, Ferretti says the 1000 was penned to be modular, allowing owners to personalize the furnishings, materials and styling.
When it comes to materials, Ferretti is using carbon fiber in the construction of the yacht’s superstructure and hardtop. The lightweight carbon helps keep the yacht’s overall heft down without compromising strength and keeps the longitudinal center of gravity relatively low.
These measures should enhance the 1000′s overall performance. According to Ferretti, the yacht should have a 24-knot cruise speed and 28-knot top hop when powered with optional 2,638 hp MTU 16V 2000 M96L diesels. (Standard power is 2,200 hp MTU 16V 2000 M86 diesels, which reportedly will provide a 20-knot cruise and 24-knot top-end speed.)
For watersports fans, the 1000′s tender garage accommodates a Williams 445 Dieseljet, a PWC and two Seabobs.
The 1000 takes Ferretti Yachts into new territory in terms of size, scope, layout and construction. And for owners ready to level up to the crewed-yacht life, this vessel could be a contender.
