Marco Ferrari, half of the Ferrari Franchi Design studio, has revealed concept images for a new F65 displacement yacht with what he calls “modern design” and “extensive outside areas for incredible entertainment”.
Measuring in at 65.6m LOA, the F65 accommodates 12 guests across six custom-built cabins, including a VIP suite, guest cabin and twin cabin on the main deck, with additional VIP suite on the upper deck, and optional guest cabin on the lower deck that doubles as a guest cinema at the owner’s requirement.
The owner is housed in a dedicated 90sqm apartment on the main deck, with full-beam master suite, double balcony, dressing area, double en-suite, lounge area and private studio. An elevator services all interior decks on board.
In her communal areas, the F65 offers a main saloon that is divided into a dining area and a lounge area with folding balconies to give direct views of the sea. Aft of the cockpit there is a 3.5m by 3.3m infinity pool surrounded by sofas for entertaining.
Located on the lower deck aft is the beach club, which is connected to the wide stern platform to provide easy access to the water, while forward is connected to the tender garage with nine-metre guest tender, seven-metre rescue tender, four Jet Skis and diving equipment. The beach club also houses an additional lounge area with bar.
Elsewhere on the lower deck is the crew area forward, with galley, crew mess, crew lounge, crew gym, two single cabins, six double cabins and a hospital cabin connected directly to the engine room. The upper lower deck hosts additional areas for the crew, with the captain’s cabin found on the upper deck. This deck has a large amount of outdoor space, with astern dining table and lounge area with fixed sunbed and a touch-and-go helipad that doubles as a terrace with additional sunbeds when not in service.
The F65’s sundeck is 22m long, with an enclosed gym area with massage room and large astern sunbed, and forward a bar and lounge area with entertainment space, wide sunbeds and further 5m by 2.5m infinity pool.
According to her designer, the F65 is capable of reaching a cruising speed of 15 knots, with alternative main engines available to achieve faster speeds.
