The innovations presented in Düsseldorf foreshadow the Group's production choices for 2019: Elite design in partnership with prestigious architectural signatures.
Düsseldorf, January 19th, 2019 – 2019 is off to a sparkling start for Ferretti Group with its incredible news, unveiled for the first time at the BOOT, the most important nautical event of the winter season, scheduled in Düsseldorf from January 19th to 27th.
In a world preview, Ferretti Group unveiled the masterpiece of the ‘X Generation,’ the new Pershing 8X, along with a fleet of seven other iconic models.
The new creation by Pershing will steal the spotlight of the next nautical season. Its sporty, streamlined lines, combined with unsurpassed standards of quality and innovation, are the result of the collaboration between the architect Fulvio De Simoni, Ferretti Group Strategic Product Committee and the Engineering Department of the Group.
Pershing 8X, made of carbon fiber, is revolutionary from a stylistic-functional point of view as well as from a performance one. The sport-fly, in fact, guarantees not only lightness and increased speed, but also greater comfort on board, thanks to larger, more welcoming spaces
The new Riva 90' Argo was also officially presented: the 90-foot project born from the collaboration with Officina Italiana Design, the studio founded by the designers Mauro Micheli and Sergio Beretta, joins the latest generation of Riva flybridge range, alongside Riva 100' Corsaro and Riva 110' Dolcevita.
The BOOT was also the stage for the presentation of four new projects that trace the beginning of a revolutionary stylistic and design path, characterized by the collaboration with some of the most famous architects worldwide.
All of the announcements were heeded with great enthusiasm: the new semi-displacement super yacht Custom Line Navetta 30, which bears the signature of two exceptional designers, architects Antonio Citterio and Patricia Viel; Ferretti Yachts 720, which cleverly combines the classic-contemporary style of Ferretti Yachts and a modern great impact design conceived by the architect Filippo Salvetti; CRN 70M megayacht, developed in collaboration with designers Andrea Vallicelli and Alessandro Nazareth, who took care of the concept, of the external lines and of the interior partitioning; and 48 Wallytender, which is one of the most anticipated premières of the next Cannes Yachting Festival.
Alongside the Pershing 8X world première, 6 highly successful models were exhibited:
• Ferretti Yachts 550 and Ferretti Yachts 670
• Rivamare, 56' Rivale and 66' Ribelle for the Riva brand
• Pershing 5X
Seabob with its sea-toys, La Scolca with its fine wines, Mogi Caffè with its blends, and Slam with its uniforms are among the luxury partners that Ferretti Group chose to enhance their fine Italian superyachts with.
