The luxury yacht experience is no longer a drop in the ocean as an industry. There is indeed a sea change in the demand and supply of luxury yachts with an increasing number of leisure boats registered day after day.
While technological innovations in yacht building and construction drive the demand for new yachts, the entire experience in terms of aesthetics and comfort is no less important. Innovations in yacht design thus focus on providing wider interaction spaces on the deck, multi-functionality of equipment and bespoke comfort in the interiors and decor. Read on about two new entrants to this exciting market.
The new Pershing 62’
The new sleek and streamlined model from the Ferretti Group comes with an aggressive sporty spirit. The first Pershing 62’ unit was manufactured with a standard layout, including three cabins – the owner’s suite, a VIP and guest cabin at the bow, and three bathrooms with separate showers. The guest bathroom, which has a double entrance from the cabin and from the lobby on a midway floor, can also be used as a day toilet. Along the port-side wall there is the galley, which receives additional light from an opening in the ceiling. The alternative version, which is already being built on the second model, has two cabins, the owner’s suite and a VIP cabin, while the guest cabin is replaced by a living room. Both versions have a crew cabin, which can be reached, from the cockpit, with a single bed and integrated bathroom. The shape of hull glazing allows extra light to penetrate the owner’s suite and VIP cabin.
The stern area has a new functional launching and storage system for the tender. The cockpit has a large central sundeck with a sunbed and sofa in elegant water resistant material. A mobile bar starboard with sink and optional grill and ice-maker can be installed. Upon request, a bimini can be installed as a sunshade. Access is easy due to the rough anti-slip area. The front windshield, which is a magnificent example of quality branded Pershing, is a single piece made of laminate, 3.7 m wide: a characteristic launched by the brand for first time on Pershing 64’ and which has now become a standard on most models.
The main saloon combines with the cockpit to create an open space with loads of natural light. The luxury seating, foldable and retractable table, and audio and television systems make this area quite attractive for lounging. Adding to this is the combination of elegant materials and colours to make the décor truly a class apart. This refined style finds its way into the lower deck, owners cabin and the VIP room as well.
Developed from the famous Ferretti 592, this new model adds new important technical-engineering research and design schemes. Measuring almost 19 metres in length and over 5 in width she strikes the right balance between a compact, sporty external line and excellent living solutions. The main deck features a larger cockpit with enhanced use of space. The galley has an electric wall, complete with a sliding door, which can isolate and close the gallery environment so the main deck can be used as a living area. The helm station is set in a raised position on the left in order to ensure maximum visibility whilst driving.
The lower deck features a full-beam master cabin, which is typical of larger yachts, with large open view windows, a wardrobe and full-beam head, plus a large separate shower area. Besides the master cabin, there are two guest cabins that feature large windows with portholes, which can be opened. Innovations in how the crew, engine room and tank areas have been divided, have led to a significant improvement in privacy and the quality of life on board. With large open air spaces and a new bar unit with integrated seating, socialization takes on an entirely new meaning.
Technical improvements such as introduction of the Integral V Drive by ZF propulsion system, used for the first time on yachts of this kind by the Ferretti Group, has reduced the rotating masses, significantly cutting noise levels. Ferretti 620 features the cutting-edge technology of the ZF SteerCommand for Ferretti system, developed by ZF Marine, that has independent rudders and differentiated turn with variable assistance, halving the turning diameter and responsiveness to the controls, guaranteeing a runabout unthinkable on a 62 footer yacht, whilst still guaranteeing the highest level of handling, control and safety at any speed.
Combining technical excellence and refined design, this yacht is eager to cruise the seas!
