Ferretti 720 tour: Italian yacht looks stunning even on a rainy day

For such a large, complex yacht, Ferretti and its principal exterior architect Filippo Salvetti have done well to reduce its visual bulk by keeping the 720's exterior lines so taut and uncluttered.

It may look simple but there’s a lot to admire inside and out. That rear view, for instance, hides a fold-down transom bench and a hydraulic platform large enough for a 3.95m tender that slides down at an angle to reveal a gently inclined set of steps down both sides.

The cockpit coamings, meanwhile, lift up to reveal hidden cleats and winches. Even the patio doors are special as all four sections slide independently on curved tracks so that they stack on top of each other.

The studied minimalism continues inside with a soft seating area aft surrounded by windows leading to a glossy black dining table with free-standing chairs. Unusually for a Ferretti, the galley is forward to port opposite the helm area.

Only when you look closely do you spot the intricate details such as the angled grain on the sideboard doors, the ribbed alcantara bulkheads and the clusters of recessed LEDs.

The owner’s suite takes this one step further with smoked glass doors to the walk-in wardrobe and bathroom that give a glimpse of the space beyond to make the whole cabin seem bigger without sacrificing too much in the way of privacy. Three further cabins complete the guest accommodation.
