Ferretti Yachts will debut its 850 Flybridge at the Cannes Yachting Festival in September after presenting the concept during Yachts Miami Beach and the Düsseldorf Boat Show.

The new yacht is the result of a collaboration between the Ferretti Group’s product strategy committee, Studio Zuccon International Project (exterior design) and the Ferretti's engineering department (naval and technical engineering).

It will be built at the Cattolica yard in Italy and make its official debut at the Cannes Yachting Festival, scheduled for Sept. 6-11.

“The Ferretti Yachts 850 is one of two brand new models that Ferretti Yachts is presenting in 2016, the second being the new 45-footer,” Ferretti Group chief commercial officer Stefano De Vivo said in a statement. “Both yachts will be previewed over the summer before their worldwide launch at the Cannes boat show.”
