The new Ferretti Yachts Infynito 90 is the first model in the Infynito range, which is defined by its signature “Further than you can Sea” concept that perfectly expresses the yacht’s defining characteristics: a focus on the environment, extensive customisation, unprecedented layout innovations and visual continuity between interiors and exteriors. (Here all our posts about Ferretti)
Presented at the last Cannes Yachting Festival, the yacht is inspired by explorer vessels and designed to cover long distances in absolute comfort. With a length overall of 26.97 metres (88 ft 6 in) and a maximum beam of 7.33 meters (24 ft 1 in), Ferretti Yachts Infynito 90 is the result of collaboration between the Strategic Product Committee led by Piero Ferrari and the Ferretti Group Engineering Department, with exterior design by architect Filippo Salvetti and interiors by Ideaeitalia.
The new Ferretti Yachts model brings to market the Group’s F.S.E.A. technology (Ferretti Sustainable Enhanced Architecture), a package of environmentally friendly cruising solutions. One of the most significant is an integrated system that stores the solar energy collected by photovoltaic panels installed on the yacht’s superstructure in an energy bank made up of lithium batteries, which provide eight hours of autonomy at anchor in zero emission and zero noise mode. There was also a special focus on the use of green materials, such as natural and bamboo fabrics, regenerated leather and recyclable materials, ecological water-based paints and lamellar teak with FSC 5 certification used throughout the exteriors.
On Infynito 90, the indoor and outdoor settings blend into one another in a groundbreaking continuum, creating generous, customisable spaces based on numerous layout combinations that owners can choose from.
Infynito 90: main deck
The extreme flexibility of the layout is clear from the outset, not least in the 34-square-metre aft cockpit, which can be decorated with free standing furniture or a panoramic sun pad combined with a formal dining area. The yacht also has a longitudinal garage accessed from the transom, with steps integrated into the lift and enough space for a Williams Diesel-JET 415 Tender.
The main deck, with its walkaround design, is one of the areas that showcases continuity between the interior and exterior spaces. The generous open space interiors, in fact, create an uninterrupted view that sweeps from the stern of the yacht to the bow.
The All-Season Terrace, one of the most innovative features of the design, is fitted out on the first unit with a Jacuzzi surrounded by sofas. As an alternative, the owner can opt for a panoramic cocktail bar featuring a counter and four bar chairs, or alternatively a series of comfortable sun loungers. All the solutions feature a generous sun pad in the bow. Electrically operated concealed windows can be fitted in all configurations to connect the terrace with the neighbouring interior area.
The forward terrace has a covered central section complete with a bimini top, available in both a fixed version and with tilting glass louvres, as installed on the first unit. The common denominators are Ferretti Yachts’ hallmark soft ceilings, verticality and clean lines, plus the thoughtful use of materials and freestanding furniture.
The huge windows running the length of the main deck lounge, and reprised in the Skylounge, are striking in their design and extend the view to include the natural environment, as well as allowing natural light to flood in. The view sweeping from stern to bow at the heart of the boat’s concept is practically uninterrupted, not even by the central staircase, which connects the three decks and is contained in a structure formed of eco-leather slats, so that it doesn’t create a visual impediment. The staircase provides a second point of access to the upper deck, in addition to the one in the cockpit.
Infynito 90 is the first model in the Ferretti Yachts range to feature a skylounge completely surrounded by windows and with direct access onto the upper deck cockpit. Forward of this is the helm station – featuring a Simrad Command integrated dashboard – that in the first unit built is closed off from the convivial zone in the midship section, which features a lounge and TV. An open version of the wheelhouse is also available. In both cases, the Skylounge can accommodate a dining area seating eight. The upper deck cockpit can also be configured with free-standing furniture to create a sunbathing and al fresco dining area.
Infynito 90, Lower Deck
Infynito 90s lower deck can offer up to four double cabins (master, VIP and two twins), all with en-suite bathroom and sleeping a total of eight passengers, or 10 if the main deck is configured with the master cabin in the bow.
The crew’s quarters are in the midship section, with independent access from the port walkway, and provide two separate cabins (sleeping three) with a double bathroom and a dinette.
Propulsion, tecnology and sustainability
Infynito 90 can be powered by two 1550 mhp MAN V12 engines (top speed 20 kn – cruising speed 15 kn) or two 1800 mhp MAN V12 engines (top speed 22 kn – cruising speed 17 kn).
The fast displacement hull is designed to deliver the best of both worlds, featuring the performance characteristics of a semi-planing boat with a top speed of over 20 knots, as well as unparalleled cost efficiency in cruise mode at 10 knots. In both cases, there’s an extremely high level of comfort when under way. Thanks to the unique design of the hull, the yacht has a range of up to 1,400 nautical miles at an economy cruising speed of 10 knots for maximum efficiency.
Thanks to the brand’s FSEA technology – a system combining photovoltaic panels mounted on the yacht’s superstructure (producing up to 7.3 kW) with an Energy Bank consisting of a 120 kWh lithium battery pack – life on board can be enjoyed in “hotel mode” for up to 8 hours at anchor, with zero emissions and zero noise and without using the generator. In terms of energy efficiency, this means an 80% saving on fuel and a corresponding reduction in CO2 emissions during typical average use of the yacht from May to September.
