Brief Summary

Ferretti Yachts has just announced an exciting new 80’ motoryacht that incorporates some design ideas and layouts which we have never seen executed quite like this before. The new effect of these innovations is to add utility and guest living space into an 80’ motoryacht. By moving the engines as far back as possible, using V-drives, moving crew quarters and the galley far forward, space has been opened up both on the main and lower decks. We think this may well be a layout followed by other builders in the future.

Ferretti 800 (2010-) Line Drawing


Captain's Report

Ferretti 800
The new Ferretti 800’s interior design will have other builders scrambling to catch up.

The Ferretti 800 is 81’ (24.73 m) LOA and has a waterline length of 67’3” (20.5 m). With a 20’7” (6.28 m) beam she is well-proportioned and able to fit two staterooms athwartships in order to make it a four-stateroom boat. Four staterooms – each with their own en suite heads, make this boat ideal for chartering.

Looking forward in the saloon, note the partition of the helm and closed door.

Typically Ferretti has placed the crew quarters between the master stateroom and the engine room. In fact, on the Ferretti 881 there are not only athwartships crew quarters, but also an electrical/mechanical room between the crews’ quarters and the engine room. In the new 80’ motoryacht Ferretti has replaced both of these compartments with the vessel's 1,783 gallon (6750 L) fuel tank which will form a sound shield between the engine room and the master. Such an arrangement is more typical in long range cruisers. By having both V-Drive engines and eliminating the two compartments, Ferretti has been able to move the master stateroom aft, freeing up space forward for crew quarters in the bow.It’s here where Ferretti makes use of the bow flare to place crew bunks in port and starboard cabins, each with their own wet heads. This, too, is a big departure for Ferretti which has generally placed the VIP stateroom, with a large island berth in the bow. That arrangement, frankly, wastes a lot of valuable bow flare space, and we are glad to see Ferretti’s new design.The 800 has the en suite head for the master stateroom on the starboard side, which works out fine because of the vessel’s 20’7" (6.28 m) beam. The added advantage of placing the head here instead of abaft the king bed, or forward, is that it frees up space forward for three guest cabins.

Look at the size of the portlight in the master stateroom. And the view outside in HD.

Note that the design actually has two VIP staterooms. The one forward is larger and actually full beam, not to mention far bigger than it would have been if were jammed into the bow of the boat. The second VIP on the port side is good-sized because the designers have placed the passageway off center. The forth stateroom is small, but Ferretti has made the best of it by using an “L”-shaped over-and-under bunk arrangement which we think is fine for this size boat. The real accomplishment in 80’ is getting the en suite head tucked in for this cabin. The builder has done it by having a spiral staircase and cleverly wrapping the head around the stairs. This is a commendable use of space.However, it is on the main deck where the most dramatic and unusual changes in typical motoryacht design were made-- First, the boat has been configured so that the helm area can be completely closed off to the saloon and dining area, as well as the dinette athwartships of its raised location to port. This is quite important and makes piloting from the lower helm possible at night, which is pretty much impossible on motoryachts that have helms open to the saloon.

Moon over Sardinia. View of the helm on the flying bridge. Note that the console retracts. There is a sun pad to the right of the helm and behind the wind screen to keep the babes warm in a breeze.

Second, the dinette is configured in such a way that it can be used as a nav table. Ferretti has always been strong on making sure their boats have goods seakeeping details, and the new 800 is no exception.Third, and most important, Ferretti has placed the galley directly forward of the raised helm in a practical “U”-shape. Between the helm and the galley is a bar counter where two or three people can sit on stools and talk to the chef, or have a snack. For night running, the galley can be closed off, as can be the dinette.

A teak deck comes standard. Ferretti has built a lot of utility into 80.’

By placing the galley here, it is about as far away from the guests as possible and very handy for the crew. On the other hand, if the guests want to hang out there, it is accessible and pleasant in a large open area with plenty of light. This is a design that has a lot going for it, and we can’t wait to see this boat “in the flesh” to see if it works out in reality as well as it does on paper.Light – as in rays from the sun -- is another aspect of the new Ferretti worth noting. There is lots of it virtually everywhere. In the master stateroom, the port and starboard portlights are huge. They are the same shape as before but just much bigger. Likewise in the other guest cabins which used to have small portlights, now have ones more the size that Ferretti used to put in the master.

Ferretti 800
A four stateroom motoryacht each with en suite heads, and two of them are VIPs, is hard to beat in 80.’

Whether or not you are in the market for a high speed (Ferretti says it is designed to go 31 knots with 1800-hp MAN engines) 80’ motoryacht, or something smaller or slower, we suggest that you check out this new Ferretti as soon as you can. It is full of good ideas.

We think she looks good in profile. We’d like to see her engine room air intakes on the inside of her bulwarks where they would be less susceptible to saltwater and salt spray intrusion.
