Italian boatbuilder Ferretti Yachts has launched the very first of its new 850 model. The new 26m flybridge was built at the shipyard in Cattolica. The launch confirms the expanding product line of the company, which now comprises 10 models ranging from 13m to 29m (45ft-96ft).

Three units of the new 850 model have already been sold, Ferretti says; two in Europe and one in the Americas.

The Ferretti Yachts 850 is built at the Cattolica shipyard and is the result of the joint efforts by Ferretti Group’s product strategy committee, Studio Zuccon International Project — for the design of the exteriors and the layout of the interiors — and the Group’s engineering department handling the engineering, naval architecture and the interior design.

The official presentation of the new model is scheduled for the beginning of September during Ferretti Group’s Private Preview in Monte Carlo. The flybridge will also be on display at the Cannes Yachting Festival in September and the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show in November.

In addition, the Italian builder has reported that the marina at Cesenatico provided the backdrop for the launching of the first Ferretti Yachts 450. The vessel takes the brand back into the 40ft-50ft segment.

Built in Forlì, the yacht will also be presented during the Private Preview in Monte Carlo at the start of September, ahead of the Cannes Yachting Festival.
