Options, options, options. That seems to be the appropriate description for the Ferretti 920, making her American premiere at this week’s Miami Yacht Show. True, since she’s a a semi-custom megayacht, she already affords plenty opportunity to personalize things. However, Ferretti Yachts has a handful of layout ideas that extend possibilities beyond what you might initially consider.
Measuring 93’5” (28.49 meters) overall, the megayacht focuses fully on maximizing as much space as possible. That explains the wide-body design, pushing the owner’s stateroom out to the full 22-foot (6.78-meter) beam. It’s forward on the main deck, too, hardly seen in this size. Also important, it doesn’t interfere with crew activities, since the side decks rise up over it. To make this possible, Zuccon International Project and the Ferretti Group’s in-house design team brought up the height of the bow.
Interestingly, buyers need not limit themselves to a single master stateroom. The Ferretti 920 has a below-decks configuration where a VIP can easily be an owner’s stateroom as well. Just like the main-deck cabin, it’s full beam, sitting amidships. A second, somewhat smaller VIP and a twin cabin come with this configuration. If you’re more of a traditionalist, though, the Ferretti 920 has a more commonplace guest arrangement. This features two twins and two doubles. Still on the subject of stateroom options, the captain’s cabin can go two different places. It can be fully forward below, or across from the crew mess. Both include an en suite head. (The two crew cabins share a head.)
When it comes to decor, the Ferretti 920 lets you select what you wish. Hull number one, shown here, was replete with walnut woods, including underfoot. She also had chocolate- and gray-toned leathers, and enameled accents in a variety of colors. Of course, the shipyard’s in-house design team, being proud of Italian craftsmanship and style, can help you select any number of “made in Italy” accessories.
Flying-bridge megayachts like the Ferretti 920 are as much about outdoor living as they are style. To that end, the shipyard pushed out the lounging space on the foredeck. The resulting dining/sunning/seating area is the largest aboard any Ferretti to date, including the 960. Naturally, if you want respite from the sun, the crew can set up sun awnings here.
Ferretti puts the “flying” in “flying bridge” when it comes to speed. Three engine options from MTU are available. Depending on your choice, expect to cruise between 23 and 26 knots, and top out between 26½ and 30 knots.
