The Ferretti 480 is a true Italian stallion that sits well with traditional Ferretti styling. A retractable gangway makes boarding the 480 from the marina decking a breeze. Entering the main cabin is similar to walking into the Palazzo Versace; all the fixtures and fittings are all five-star. Luxurious soft leather upholstery and cherrywood joinery abound. To the port of the sliding glass entry – that lifts completely out of the way to create an open entertaining area between the main saloon and the aft cockpit – is a lavish U-shaped lounge. Sit on this lounge and you become enveloped by the surrounding luxury.
By incorporating a sunken galley into the boat’s design, Ferretti creates a feeling of space in the main saloon. This galley is functional and features a full height refrigerator with freezer compartment.
Forward of the galley is a raised dinette, with twin lounge seating that offers commanding views to all points. It’s a great place to relax and watch the scenery slip by when underway. On the port side is the brilliant helm station, which boasts just about every electronic device known to man.
The 480 has three staterooms, two with twin single bunks, a bed-side table and fabric-lined hanging lockers, while the master stateroom features an oversized island bed. A bathroom with shower, vanity unit and marine toilet is located on the port side for guests, while the owner’s cabin has its own en suite. Moving back into the main saloon the first thing to catch your eye is the unique ladder next to the helm station that leads to the flybridge
A comfy curved lounge fills the rear of the flybridge, while there’s another sunpad/lounge to the port side of the upper helm station. From the bridge the skipper has unimpeded views to all quarters and complete control over the vessel via the dual electronic controls.
The Ferretti is all about style and an appreciation of the good things in life.
