Two large side portholes that make all the difference
The Italian manufacturer Ferretti launched the Ferretti 830 one year ago. With 25 metres long, it is the brand’s second largest vessel and a stunning addition to its range of luxury yachts.
The Ferretti 830‘s exterior has the sleek lines that the brand is renowned for, with a flowing silhouette, very low superstructures and an extremely long profile. The real innovation comes in the form of the two large, rectangular windows located on the wate line in the centre of the boat, which give the owner’s cabin a breathtaking sea view and plenty of light. The 830 has a flybridge that can be accessed via two stairways, one in the cockpit and the other in the saloon. The flybridge contains a bench seat, a forward helm station and a sundeck. There is also a large and very comfortable sundeck at the bow. The lounge area on the aft deck is sheltered by the rear of the flybridge. Lastly, Ferretti has added an ingenious jet ski stowage area which opens to form a vast bathing platform.
A sliding door gives access to the comfortable interior. The wheelhouse is very bright, thanks to the combination of light-coloured wood and numerous bay windows. The space is well-equipped but without feeling cluttered. There is a large, relaxing saloon area aft, with plasma television, and the kitchen is fully equipped.
The wheelhouse is separated from the rest of the interior by a partition. On its lower deck, the 830 has no less than five cabins. There is a guest cabin with double berth in the bow. The owner’s cabin is in the centre of the yacht and is surprisingly spacious for this type of model. One of a kind, it has two large side portholes that let in lots of daylight. One of the side portholes is in the magnificent and impressively large, en suite bathroom in the owner’s cabin, meaning you can shower with a sea view, another innovation from Ferretti. As well as the large double berth, this cabin actually serves as a private apartment, with lounge area and a desk. The rest of the lower deck is taken up by two twin cabins each with their own bathroom. For the interior, Ferretti has chosen polished cherrywood for all the woodwork, and stretched fabric on the bulkheads.
To propel all 70 tons of the 830, Ferretti offers two engine options: 2 x 1825 hp for a maximum speed of 31 knots, or for optimum power, 2 x 2030 hp for a maximum speed of 33 knots and cruising speed of 30 knots. Quite a remarkable performance for a model of this weight.
