The Ferretti Yachts 550 is the result of the cooperation between AYT&D, the Group's research, development and style department, and Studio Zuccon International Project. It is characterised by a brand-new hull, and equally brand-new are the layout of the engine room and that of the main deck, as well as the interior arrangement. In addition to this, special care has been devoted not only to guaranteeing maximum production efficiency and effectiveness, but also to optimising the yacht's weight balance, thereby ensuring great performances even if small, light and low-consumption engines are installed.
The profile of the boat is characterised by sober, streamlined, slender lines, blending together refined elegance and a sporty character. The uninterrupted glazing running across the main deck further enhances the boat's rakish profile, and is complemented by a large, aerodynamic flybridge. Three large glazed surfaces - the cabins windows - can be found on both sides of the hull. Each has flush frameless fibreglass portholes resulting in very clean lines.
This yacht's interior spaces and onboard equipment allows it to be on an equal standing with much larger yachts. Many outdoor relaxation areas have been conceived: the forward dinette area, furnished with facing sofas and a table; the large sunpad on the deckhouse; and the cockpit, featuring a large aft sofa and a table. On the flybridge, the storage cabinet and the restyled, small-size pilot station instrument panel allow to extend the relaxation areas - both the sunpad and the comfortable dining area - even more.
The Group's Centro Stile has found very appealing décor solutions, adding elegance to all onboard ambiances and preserving the range's unique Made-in-Italy style and charm. The cockpit and the aft area of the salon stand out for an impressive décor consistency. Indeed, the teak flooring found in the cockpit continues indoor, in the galley and the entrance, visually and 'physically' harmonising these different environments. This flawless continuity is also ensured by the new three-section glazed door that can be folded to starboard and concealed behind the stairs leading to the flybridge. The perfect harmony between form and content, aesthetics and functionality is completed by the ceiling panel decoration, which is the same in the salon and outdoor, creating as a sort of 'style mirror' that welcomes all guests at best. The cockpit thus becomes an extension of the interiors, which can be opened completely onto the sea on all sides.
