Frontrunners: Planing and Simple

<< Back to Robb Report, September 2013

    The first Ferretti 960 (www.ferretti-yachts.com), a production yacht that launched in June, is the largest planing-hull vessel the Italian company has ever produced. The 96-footer can reach a speed of 27.5 knots with the standard engines, and it sleeps as many as 10 guests. (The price is available upon request.) Accommodations can include a master suite forward on the main deck and four lower-deck cabins. The 960 has quarters for five crew members, but it does not require a professional captain for operation. The yacht’s highlights include a large flybridge, a main saloon that is well lit thanks to the yacht’s low gunwales, and a padded lounging area at the stern.
