Ferretti Yachts Altura 840 Project
Unmistakeable Style for A "Villa On The Sea"

Altura, the timeless series that has made an unforgettable contribution to the story of modern sailing, is renewing. On the occasion of the Privilege Days – an exclusive event dedicated to Ferretti Yachts owners, celebrating in 2008 the 40th anniversary of the yard’s foundation – Ferretti Yachts presented the world premier of the Altura 840 project.

The new model was conceived an evolution of the legendary Altura line, offering lovers of sailing a new way of “Essere Ferretti”, experiencing the sea with all the comforts of an exclusive villa without any compromise and enjoying the design, quality and technology of Ferretti yachts.   

The Altura 840 marks an evolution and renewal for the yard, extending the historic series born in the mid-1970s with Altura 42 – a fibreglass motorsailer inspired by the principles of light, comfort and safety. This was followed in the 1980s by the Altura 46 and Altura 49, “pioneer” models that opened up an age of motoryachting with cutting edge innovation.

After the 2005 launch of the Altura 690, a 21 metre yacht combining the Altura philosophy with innovative Ferretti Group technology, and with the Altura 840, the yard has now completed an important stage in the evolution of the line. Designed by the Studio Zuccon International Project in collaboration with the AYT – the Ferretti Group Engineering Division - Altura 840 now stands alongside Altura 690, which provided the inspiration behind the design project, as an extremely comfortable yacht with generous, welcoming spaces and the most advanced technology, complemented by finishings with a nautical feel, including an extensive use of wood.

“Altura 840 embodies a perfect synthesis between the concept of an aft-cabin motoryacht, with the master cabin aft, conceived for medium and long range cruising, and the flying bridge” – explains Marco Segato, Vice President Sales Ferretti Yachts – “based on a design solution that allows no compromises on the high quality, technology, comfort and design typical of Ferretti yachts. We have great commercial expectations for this model, not just in the “enlarged” Europe that now includes Russia and Turkey, but also for North America and northern Europe. Our aim”, continues Marco Segato, “is to conquer a share of “mature” owners with nautical experience who are seeking a totally unique product, one that allows them to experience the sea for medium-long periods together with family and friends. Once again Ferretti Yachts is proud to affirm a maxim of its founder and President Norberto Ferretti: “Boats to be used and not to be shown.”
