The Altura 840 combines the philosophy of the Altura a line that has contributed to the history of modern motoryachts with the Ferretti group's technological innovations. The result of a collaboration between the Studio Zuccon International Project and AYT (Advanced Yacht Technology).
Altura 840 features a special design concept an extremely comfortable boat with generous spaces, cutting edge technology and a nautical style finish involving extensive use of wood.
A yacht for owners who want to experience the sea while enjoying all the comforts of an exclusive villa.
Step on board and the cockpit, teak-paneled like all the exterior flooring, immediately reveals the attention devoted to maximizing space for social interaction: a large rectangular table in teak, a fixed bench and three armchairs can accommodate up to eight guests.
Stairs from the cockpit give access to the spoiler and flybridge.
A sliding door in tempered, darkened glass leads into the roomy salon. Immediately starboard is the stairway to the master cabin.
The interiors, as elsewhere, are in teak, and the walls are entirely paneled in boiserie, with light colored fabric for the upper sections.
The salon is flooded with light from the two large rectangular windows, and includes a living area intended for total relaxation.
To starboard is a divan with bar table, armchair and two coffee tables, one of which is central.
This section leads into a working zone with ex- tendable desk and armchair. Opposite are two comfy armchairs with a low unit concealing the 32" pop up TV. The two chairs can also be moved near the divan to seat friends.
This boat is full of cool stuff starting with the um- brella on the foredeck, with a very easy way to store it vertically despairing into the deck, here is also the big window in the lower lever which allows you to have the dinner with a breeze and not just enjoy the view.
The teak capped glass banisters are sturdy and secure but visually weightless. The raised open plan wheel house has a single commanding helm seat but also a terrific breakfast dinette with superb views all around the boat. This is why Ferretti has managed to built a very luxury high tech villa on the sea.
