From her made-in-Italy finishes and furnishings to her 31-knot top speed, the Ferretti 780 is the latest large yacht keeping Ferretti Yachts a top choice among Americans seeking sleek style and speed. She also has an unexpected, open-plan layout taking popular home design out onto the open water.
Given her 78’9” (24.01-meter) LOA, you might assume the 780 has a traditional enclosed galley on the main deck. Since she’s European-built, you might even expect a below-decks galley. To suit U.S. preferences, Ferretti Yachts did put the galley on the main deck. However, it’s not a room unto itself. Rather, it’s open to the dining area and saloon. This suits the more relaxed lifestyle here.
Keeping the open concept feeling more open, the Ferretti 780 lines the aft galley bulkhead with porcelain tiles. Bright-white lacquered cabinetry helps in that regard, too, versus wood cabinets.
For the barefoot luxury so many cruisers enjoy, the saloon sole is all wood. The light stain contrasts with and complements the darker woods and other materials, like grey steel trim navy blue leather.
With a beam of 19 feet (5.8 meters), the Ferretti 780 places all four staterooms below decks. Yours makes the most of that beam, amidships, while Very Important People go forward. Doubles to port and starboard cater to your kids, your other family, or friends.
Catering to all guests aboard, the Ferretti 780 includes a sound system with control from room to room. This way the rockers among you don’t clash with the classical music fans. Though, if you all have the same tastes, put the sound system into party mode. That way, everyone from the flying bridge to the transom can really rock the boat (figuratively).
While the Ferretti 780 in this video is a European-market model, the space allocations are the same. And, of course, buyers can choose the tones, textures, and materials of their choice, to tailor their 780 from keel to flying bridge.
