It took the shipyard less than a year after it was first announced to make Ferretti Yachts 860 Project a reality. Commissioned by an Italian owner, this 89-foot (27-meter) vessel combines comfort with performance. Its exterior, designed by renowned architect Filippo Salvetti, features a sleek profile with clean lines that emphasize its elegance.

The flybridge oozes Italian style. It has a contemporary design that harmonizes with classic elements. Its interiors, drawn by Ideaeitalia, were created as a continuity of the exterior. The opening window at the starboard reveals plenty of open, airy spaces that are filled with natural light.

The rooms are decorated in warm, dark colors with striking contrasts that draw attention to the yacht's Italian DNA. Elements like the Art Deco-inspired curves and the helical staircase that connects the main deck to the lower deck complete the design.

The whole focus was the make the interior spaces feel "just like home," all while maintaining the timeless elegance and comfort specific to Ferretti's yachts. The objective was to create a new harmony on board that would offer the ideal luxurious setting for up to 20 passengers to enjoy.

In terms of performance, the yacht gets its power from twin V12-2000 diesel MAN engines. The 89-foot (27-meter) flybridge will be able to navigate at the impressive speeds of 32 knots (37 mph/ 59 kph) and cruise at 27 knots (31 mph/ 50 kph).

Following its launch, the Ferretti Yachts 860 will head to its new owner, who will take it on a cruise in the Mediterranean. Once the vessel completes its maiden voyage, it will join Ferretti Group Private Preview in Monte Carlo, and later this year, it is expected to make its official debut at the Cannes Boat Show.
