Ferretti 880 is a new Ferretti Group yacht.With this brand-new model, Ferretti Yachts has made its official debut in the luxury superyacht sector. This yacht was designed for those who wish to cruise in top-of-the-range style, without forsaking that feeling of intimacy typical of Ferretti's yachts. The 880 was designed to maintain the House characteristics, and it has simple, dynamic and sophisticated lines. The exceptional design work performed by the Zuccon International studio and Ferretti Engineering is particularly obvious on the flybridge, which represents a combination of styling and spacious luxury. It is an invitation to enjoy sun and sea in conditions of total relaxation. Everything is incredibly detailed, exclusive and comfortable, such as the whirlpool tub, the cocktail bar, the settees and the sundeck. Cruising is made more comfortable thanks to a large corner sofa located near the pilot-house, accompanied by a coffee table. In this area, separated from the rest of the bridge to create more privacy, you can find a second descent to the lower bridge in addition to the main one with access to the cockpit. The horse-shoe-shaped sofa can seat 8 persons around the table for an open-air lunch. A large round tub with positioned hydro-massage, located in the center of the large sunbathing platform where guests can comfortably chat with those seated as well as those having a hydro-massage, can also be requested.
