The company said the model is the largest planing yacht that it has ever built.

During the next few weeks, all technical activities — Italian Register of Shipping tests, sea trials, and system and equipment tests — will be performed and on-board fitting-out operations will be completed, the company said.

The Ferretti 960, which will be presented as a world premiere at the next Festival de la Plaisance in Cannes, is a result of cooperation between the Studio Zuccon International Project and Advanced Yacht Technology & Design, the Ferretti Group’s research and naval design center.

“The launch of this model makes us extremely proud, first and foremost because it marks the debut of a new flagship in the brand’s range,” Karin Paggi, Ferretti Yachts and Ferretti Custom Line EMEA sales manager, said in a statement. “This yacht has been conceived to meet the needs and wishes of our clients all over the world who love Ferretti Yachts’ classic-contemporary style, but are also equally attracted by increasingly sporty and slender lines that go hand in hand with an unprecedented comfort, normally found on much larger crafts. On the Ferretti 960 we have indeed achieved truly absolute comfort while confirming the brand’s traditional outstanding performances and reliability.”

The Ferretti 960, which has an overall length of 96 feet and a maximum width of 22 feet, is the brand’s first planing recreational boat featuring the master cabin forward on the main deck and as many as four equally sized guest cabins on the lower deck. The layout also includes three crew cabins with reserved access from the galley.
