Ferretti Yachts Reveals Infynito 80
Ferretti Yachts is scheduled to stage the world premiere of the Infynito 80 at the Cannes Yachting Festival from September 10-15. Built at the Ferretti Group’s new Marina di Ravenna shipyard on Italy’s east coast, the model is the second in a new range that began with the Infynito 90 that debuted at Cannes last year before hull one made its way to its owner in China.
Featuring an overall length of 23.7m (77ft 9in) and a beam of 6.36m (20ft 10in), the Infynito 80 features exteriors by Filippo Salvetti and interiors by IdeaeItalia, and was designed in collaboration with Ferretti Group’s Strategic Product Committee chaired by Piero Ferrari and the company’s Engineering Department.
Like the Infynito 90, the Infynito 80’s signature feature is the ‘all-season terrace’, a covered foredeck that can be set up in a variety of ways, while notable differences include a flybridge that can be open or semi-closed.
Salvetti said: “After Infynito 90, we developed the range’s second model with the aim of retaining some of this design’s unique and inimitable characteristics, while also adding new features tailored for a project of a different size.
“We’re proud to present Infynito 80, a solution with above-average covered exterior space, enabling owners to enjoy the yacht in all seasons and weather conditions but without sacrificing direct contact with the sea, the surrounding environment or the sun.”
Like her big sister, the Infynito 80 features Ferretti Sustainable Enhanced Architecture (FSEA), a package of environmentally friendly cruising solutions. They include an integrated system that stores the solar energy collected by the photovoltaic panels installed on the hard top in an energy bank consisting of 14 high-density lithium batteries.
The battery pack is in the engine room, in watertight steel containers fitted with temperature-monitoring sensors. There’s also a special focus on the use of green materials, such as natural and bamboo fabrics, regenerated leather and recyclable materials, ecological water-based paints and lamellar teak with FSC 5 certification, used throughout the exteriors.
The beach area has an aft platform with a linear lift for launching and hauling up the tender, and is overlooked by a sea-view couch incorporating a generous storage unit. The 19sqm cockpit has free-standing furniture for greater flexibility in terms of layout and use.
In the 29sqm saloon, the dining room can be replaced by a show kitchen with a bar counter and stools. The main galley is at the forward end of the main deck, with an electrically operated sliding glass door providing direct access to the all-season terrace.
The covered forward terrace is sheltered by an extension to the superstructure for protection and total privacy. The 13sqm terrace can be configured as a dinette, with seating and an extending table, or as a bar counter. The semi-raised pilothouse is accessed by a staircase in the centre of the main deck.
The standard flybridge is totally open, although owners can choose a semi-closed one with glass panels, while the fixed hard top provides shade for the upper dining area. The aft flybridge features an outdoor galley and a clear area for free-standing furniture such as sun loungers.
The 43sqm lower deck has a full-beam master suite midships, a VIP cabin and two guest cabins, while the crew quarters contain three berths in two cabins.
Davide Bernardini and Alessio Battistini of IdeaeItalia said: “Infynito 80’s interior design builds on the sustainability solutions adopted for Infynito 90, which are the key plus point of this range. From lamellar teak and eco-friendly paints to regenerated leather and other recyclable materials, everything is designed to offer a yachting experience that fully respects the environment.
“Not to mention the iconic Ferretti Yachts moods: Classic, which taps into earthy elements, and Contemporary, featuring glowing woods and fabrics in fresh hues inspired by the colours of the sea. Both moods create a sophisticated aesthetic in functional and efficient spaces designed for owners who increasingly see their yacht as a new place to live in, as if it were an extension of their home”.
The Infynito 80 can be fitted with a pair of 1,400mhp Man V12 engines for a top speed of 23 knots and a cruising speed of 18 knots, based on preliminary data, while with high-efficiency hull helps achieve a range of 1,000nm at 12 knots.
