The new 20 metre 670 fills a gap in Ferretti Yachts’ mid-range lineup, bringing with it the group’s synergy in terms of technology, style, ergonomics and luxury, as well as a number of significant innovations. One of the main changes is in the choice of the design team, with Ferretti bringing in Filippo Salvetti for the job. “My plans did not include a revolution,” commented Salvetti. “But at the same time, replacing the Zuccon Design Project, I wanted to give a new character to the whole yacht. I studied the history of the brand, which played a very significant role in the flybridge market, therefore, I tried to reproduce elements that were once used on Ferretti Yachts, but giving them a modern shape. The flybridge profile has acquired a more aggressive and aerodynamic look compared to previous models.”
For the 670, a hull was developed that has even larger internal volumes than its predecessors of similar length. The main challenge was to create a stylish yacht with improved speed characteristics, along with sublime comfort. And it appears that the engineers succeeded: the 670 has a greater displacement, and a wider deck (5.38 metres), but also the fuel consumption is significantly lower. Two engine variants are available. In the base version, the yacht is equipped with two 1,000hp MAN V8s, giving it a maximum speed of 28 knots and a cruise speed of 25 knots. Also available are a pair of MAN 1200s, which enable the 670 to reach 32 knots while cruising at 28 knots. “We appreciated the approach of Filippo Salvetti, which did not radically adjust the existing design, but, on the contrary, added a new vision,” commented Michelangelo Casadei, technical director of the shipyard. “All these elements will also appear on the new Ferretti Yachts 720, but in a slightly expanded version.”

The first thing that any guest can appreciate when stepping aboard the 670 is the broad swim platform. This is a great place to store a tender (up to 3.5 metres long), or to simply enjoy it as an expansive beach club. The hydraulic platform can be lowered into the water, revealing several additional steps hidden in the hull. Also at the stern are several storage spaces for the Seabobs and other watersports gear.
The innovative spaces carry forward too, as the foredeck houses a secluded area with several sofas and a full-fledged dinette where you can eat, sunbathe or just enjoy the views. This multifunctional space is something we see on superyachts – rare for a yacht of this size.
The sofas follow the lines of the bulwarks, skirting the bow around the perimeter, with the two tables allowing you to take breakfast in luxury. The tables can also be raised to create a huge sunpad – just cover the area with pillows and enjoy the open air. Bimini awnings are another nice option, especially useful when staying in a marina, as they can hide the foredeck from prying eyes.
The flybridge measures 24 metres squared, which is an impressive figure for a 20 metre yacht. This large area allows the flybridge to be split into several zones for eating, relaxing and entertaining. A large sunpad occupies the area forward of the upper helm, with a bar area, dining table and U-shaped sofa set under the hardtop.
Despite the fact that it is a production yacht, some zones on the flybridge can be individualised. This is especially true of the stern where detached furniture can be arranged depending on the Owner’s preferences, or removed altogether for a party.

The Ferretti Group’s in house designers created the interior, adding a little more chic to the proceedings while modifying the usual layout. In the main salon, the corner sofas are separated by a passage and complemented by coffee tables. The galley on the 670 is small but functional, featuring a stove, sink, oven, microwave, refrigerator and more than enough storage spaces. This galley, for the first time, occupies a central place in the main salon, while the dining room, with a U-shaped sofa, is located next to it.
Flexibility is one of the-670’s features, with the two layout options available. Choose between a three or four guest cabin set up on the lower deck, with a spacious, full beam master suite located amidships. Here, another superyacht detail can be found, with a small studio being located at the entrance to the suite.
In this version of the yacht, the studio also plays the role of a study, with a writing desk and a bookcase featured in the design. In another one of the layouts, the study can be isolated, or another cabin can be arranged in its place. Behind the headboard of the large double bed are entrances to the dressing room and bathroom. Additional comfort comes in the form of a sofa, featuring a combination of textures of warm and cold colours, as well as a dressing table.
The VIP cabin can be found in its traditional space in the bow with its spacious layout enabling the fitment of two wardrobes. There’s a well equipped bathroom with Calcatta marble, that also serves the standard cabin with its twin beds.

Ferretti Yachts place great emphasis on enabling the captain to do his job safely and efficiently. The bridge is equipped with three Naviop-Simrad displays controlling all the onboard systems. An updated electro-hydraulic steering wheel opens up new possibilities for controlling the yacht and now all moving parts (inverters, steering wheels, propellers) are controlled by electronics.
But the highlight of the 670 is the helm’s improved joystick control. Here, you can increase and reset speed, performing much like the function of an accelerator. Tilting the joystick back and forth; you can smoothly adjust speed, and also set a constant nav speed. Incredibly, the yacht remains very maneuverable, so the joystick can be used as a full-fledged alternative to the steering wheel. However, the joystick only works up to a cruising speed of 28 knots, to go at the maximum speed of 32 knots, you will have to switch to the steering wheel.
The Ferretti 670 is a stylish and luxurious yacht that will spice up the popular 20 metre segment. It is efficient, swift and the captain won’t find a more intuitive yacht to manoeuvre. Whether you’re enjoying the foredeck, relaxing on the flybridge, or jumping off the swim platform, the 670 is there to make your stay as memorable as possible.
