The Ferretti Group has laid out its plans for the year ahead, including a return to the sub-50ft flybridge market with the Ferretti 450
The new model (pictured above) will be launched in September at the Cannes Yachting Festival and represents a return to the sub-50ft flybridge market for the Italian yard.
Powered by twin v-drive Cummins QSB 6.7 engines (425hp-480hp), the Ferretti 450 should be capable of topping 30 knots.
Ferretti will be offering a choice between twin and triple cabin layouts, both of which come with a full-beam master cabin and a galley-aft main deck.
The launch comes amid rising financial results for the Ferretti Group, with €363m of revenue reported for 2015, up 57% on the year before.
CEO Alberto Galassi told a press conference at the Boot Dusseldorf Boat Show that these results mean that Ferretti Group is now the second-biggest boat builder in the world.
Other new models due for 2016 launch include the Pershing 5X and the Ferretti 850, both of which are also scheduled for a September launch at the Cannes Yachting Festival.
The largest model in the Custom Line range will be launched next summer, in the form of the new Navetta
