The restyled maxi flybridge expresses the authentic brand values from which its name “Pure” derives and interprets the new philosophy “Just like home” in a perfect blend of elegance, style, and comfort that enhances total well-being Classic lines and comfort like at home for a model that maximizes the pleasure of sailing with elegance and style: it is the Ferretti Yachts 920 PURE, a restyling unveiled in a global reveal at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2019.
The project philosophy reflects the perfect timeless Ferretti Yachts style, indelible for over 50 years, and the “just like home” comfort of the new campaign. The layout and technical characteristics remain the same for the maxi flybridge (28.49 metres LOA), immediately striking with its sporty, dynamic profile. A product of the collaboration between the Ferretti Group’s Product Strategy Committee and Engineering Department, Ferretti Yachts 920 Pure stands out for the new lines of the interiors, which are cleaner, softer, and more essential, and the materials, which are simpler and more refined.
The result is a yacht that offers an unrivalled sensation of well-being under sail that accompanies the guests through all the spaces, thus becoming a true luxury villa on the water.
The warm colours of the new materials and fabrics make the atmosphere onboard more welcoming than ever. The white lacquered ceilings combine beautifully with the bleached oak floors, the leather upholstered furniture, the details in sand, cashmere, and sepia colour, and the light-coloured marble. A chromatic harmony that comes to life through the careful selection of a reduced number of materials, essential and refined, and the furniture by well-known designer brands.
The lounge, with bleached oak parquet flooring, is furnished entirely by Minotti: from the L-shaped sofa of the Alexander collection in the cord colour, featuring a special mélange effect that creates shaded contrasts of light and dark on the fabric, to the Prince armchair that, though reflecting the classic design of the ’50s, fits in perfectly, also thanks to the dark leather upholstery combined with the Damier ottoman that gives the space a note of character.
The composition of the lounge is completed by a coffee table with a strong sculptural imprint: Shields, which like yin & yang joins the two sides of the yacht, refined and modern, and whose particular cylindrical shape creates a play of black and white that characterizes the two offset semicircles. Evoking the play of contrasts and shades, the Waves coffee table, with painted aluminium structure – Sand or Light Bronze outside, Pewter inside – and a smoked grey glass top, is a direct and engaging reference to the undulating profile of ocean waves. In the dining area that opens onto the outdoors with a large side door, the Catlin round table, with intentionally simple lines, has a shiny chrome base that echoes the stainless steel profile of the custom-made doors of the furniture, and the top in smoked grey glass, accompanied by eight enveloping Aston Dining chairs upholstered in mélange ash, in a perfect blend of formal elegance and comfort.
In the Ferretti Yachts 920 PURE, as in its predecessor, the raised forward section of the hull enabled the introduction of the wide-body master suite on the main deck. The bed has been completely redesigned to give a new level of comfort and elegant lines. Supported by a structure with base in striated walnut topped with a light-coloured leather finish, the bed is enriched by the Minotti fabrics used for the pillows and headboard in grey shades. A large mirror over the bed emphasizes the generous size of the cabin. The furnishing is completed by a spacious walk-in closet with built-in lighting and a completely extractable shoe rack, and the Creed sofa by Minotti in the ocean blue colour, a clear evocation of the seascape that can be admired from the large windows with a stunning view on the outside.
Everything has been carefully studied, including the colours, from the bookshelves and all the furniture to the sheets and bed set by Gentili&Mosconi. The full-beam bathroom is situated at the foredeck on a slightly lowered level and is laid out in three zones comprising the head, shower, and washbasin area with large mirrors. The entire bathroom, from the builtin washbasins to the shower walls to the heated floor, is covered in an elegant marble in light colours that reflect the colours of all the other areas of the yacht. The central part of the deck controls the flows onboard. To the left is the access to the galley, from which you can go up to the helm station or out onto the exterior walkway.
Proceeding forward, you come to the first technical and system monitoring area, beyond which are the stairs leading down to the crew quarters. To starboard, there is the access to the lower deck, with a large storage area and day toilet; the parquet stairway, illuminated by a skylight, is framed by a wall of mirrors and leather and leads to the lower lobby featuring the finest materials: leather for the cabin doors, steel, and wall coverings by Zimmer&Rohde.
The guests’ area of the lower deck has three large en suite cabins: a full-beam double suite aft, worthy of being called a master cabin, and a second VIP suite on the port side. A comfortable third cabin with single beds completes the sleeping area. The furnishings in these cabins and in their bathrooms, though with their own specific customizations, feature the same interplay of materials and colours as the upper deck, including the Minotti headboards in graphite-colour Kabuki fabric used in the master cabin. Special attention is paid to the crew: in addition to a dinette with laundry area, the captain can enjoy a private cabin, and the crew are housed in two double cabins with a shared bathroom fitted with separate shower.
The exterior areas offer an impressive amount of spaces for relaxation and luxurious furnishings, both builtin and freestanding, the latter by the Italian outdoor furniture brand Roda. The forward area is the largest ever on a Ferretti Yachts vessel of this size. The sun pad on the deckhouse leads into a dinette fitted with two forward-facing sofas – divided by a passageway – and a pair of sofas with adjustable backrests along the bulwark. This creates a large lounge, complete with coffee tables, which can be protected and shaded by a sun canopy upon request. The flybridge is a panoramic deck dedicated to relaxation, especially in the centre and at the stern. It is covered by a hard top overlooking the dining area and the outdoor helm station.
The bar unit below can be configured to suit the specific needs of each owner, and features two bar stools from Roda’s Harp 350 line. The light, natural colours of the interiors are reflected again in all the outdoor settings. The spacious dining area features a table from the Light Pier collection, with a top made of teak slats combined with tubular steel legs painted with a milk-white finish. The dining area is completed by eight comfortable chairs from the Piper line available in the version with teak seat, white tubular aluminium structure, and sand-coloured Batyline fabric upholstery and white cushions.
The stern area, in continuity with the setting, features other elements from the Piper collection: a comfortable L-shaped modular five-seat sofa and an ottoman in white weave fabric, a central coffee table, and two sun loungers, all with top in light teak and a milk-white tubular metal structure. The cockpit features a multipurpose sofa, which can be used as a sunpad or as a seat for the custom outdoor dining table in teak with steel inserts and Ferretti Yachts logo, accompanied by five teak chairs from Roda’s Piper collection characterized by a backrest with cord-colour braided belts. At the stern is the Submersible Hatch, the famous system used to move the garage door and swimming platform, offering guests all the comfort of a spacious beach club and allowing the crew to easily manage a tender measuring up to 4 metres long.
