The American Premières
FERRETTI YACHTS 670 – the flybridge that enhances spaces and livability:
Symbol of an evolution of the brand in the sign of tradition, Ferretti Yachts 670 maintains the sleek lines and the clean forms of the latest models, with an excellent updated design of the spaces, for a perfect mix of socialisation and independence. A product of the collaboration between the Group’s Product Strategy Committee and Engineering.Department, it is the first Ferretti Yachts vessel with exterior design created in partnership with architect Filippo Salvetti, while the interiors are exclusively the work of the Group’s in-house architects and designers. Characterised by excellent optimisation of the space, both interior and exterior, in its 67 feet (20.24 metres) the 670 features solutions typical of much larger vessels. These include the large flybridge with its area of 25 square metres that makes it one of the most competitive yachts in its category, and the bow that features a living space that can be converted into a spacious relaxation area, a true innovation in terms of liveability and comfort.
PERSHING 9X – the maxi coupe that combines luxury and technology
The second chapter of the new “Generation X” is a maxi coupé with aggressive lines and sumptuous comfort.
