Ferretti Yachts New Flagship 960

11th April 2013


Ferretti 960 is the largest planing recreational craft ever built by Ferretti Yachts.

It is a sporty 96-footer boasting sporty features, top performancesin its category and innovative design solutions and layouts.

Thanks to its 29.20-metre overall length and 23.98-metre hull length, the new flagship belongs to the CE design category and can therefore be managed as a pleasure boat, without requiring the presence of a professional captain, while offering impressive habitability and comfort compared to other models in its class. Ferretti 960 makes the most of the layout concepts currently found even on larger models in its class: indeed, the new flagship is Ferretti Yachts’s first planing yacht boasting the master cabin forward, on the main deck, and as many as four guest cabins, all equally sized and with equivalent furnishings and fittings, located on the lower deck. Great care has been devoted to the soundproofing of all cabins on the lower deck too: multi-layer bulwarks have been built to dampen the noise and vibrations coming from the engine room, the crew area, and the adjacent cabins.

The external profile sets a new trend in the design of large planing hulls: the glazing runs along the entire main deck “cutting” it from stern to the extreme bow and contributing to a much lighter profile while ensuring incredible interior brightness. Outdoor areas have been extended too: the very spacious flybridge is now entirely devoted to total relaxation and leisure activities. The central part of the swimming platform can be lowered to flood part of the garage, so that the tender can easily slide into the water with no need for any davit. The garage is really large: it can store an approximately 4.5 metre-long tender and various equipment, such as diving gear, thanks to several peaks.

Ferretti Yachts's first CE-certified 96-footer, the brand's new flagship, can be fitted with three different sets of MTU engines. The standard version has two 16V 2000 M84, 2218 mhp engines allowing it to reach a maximum speed of 27.5 knots and a cruising speed of 24 knots. Two optional solutions include two 16V M93, 2435 mhp engines or two 16V M94, 2638 mhp engines, respectively. In the former version, the maximum speed will be 29 knots, the cruising speed 25; in the more powerful version, installed on the first hull, the Ferretti 960 can reach a peak of 31 knots and enjoy a cruising speed of 27 knots (preliminary data). The ARG (Anti Rolling Gyro) system is standard, to ensure maximum onboard comfort. Underway stabilising fins can also be installed upon request, to ensure even smoother navigation.
