Feretti's Altura 840 is not so much a boat as a "cruising penthouse", says Alan Harper in Motorboat and Yachting.
It is "beautifully constructed" and has first-class design, with the white leather and varnished teak adding to the cool penthouse ambience. The three twin cabins are similarly well appointed, and the designer glass balustrades and huge windows give a light and airy feel throughout.
The Altura also handles nimbly and drives well for such a big boat (84ft), giving "sparkling performance, powering through waves with barely a tremor", and delivering a top speed of 30.1 knots.
