Genoa, 1st October 2014 - Ferretti Group, a world leader in the design, construction and sale of luxury motor yachts, confirms its presence at the 54th Genoa International Boat Show, being held from 1st through 6th October 2014. The Group’s main goal during this event will be introducing Italy too to an exclusive selection of some of its brands’ most important models, which are true ambassadors of Italian style all over the world.

“Following the success it met among the public and critics alike as well as in terms of sales at the recent Cannes Yachting Festival and the presentation in Monaco of Riva's new full custom line (which will include steel yachts between 50 and 100 metres in length), the Group proudly continues to take part in the world's leading boat shows. In Genoa it is displaying some of the most exclusive models of its Made-in-Italy production”, commented Mr Alberto Galassi, Ferretti Group's CEO. “We are even prouder to be present in Genoa, this year, with two of our newest models that best represent our Group’s 'new era’, characterised by a renewed focus on products and technological innovation as well as design. Indeed, I believe that a Group like ours - which is a symbol of Italy all over the world - simply could not miss the leading boat show in Italy".

At the 54th Genoa Boat Show Ferretti Group is displaying a fleet consisting of 8 boats, 2 of which are absolute premieres for Italy: the Ferretti Custom Line Navetta 28 – the latest model in the semi-displacement line, featuring a sinuous profile and a refined design, as well as state-of-the-art technological innovations including an exclusive patent – and the Pershing 70 – an impressive, futuristic-look megayacht that stands out for its aerodynamic lines, elegant style and unique performances. Genoa Boat Show’s visitors will also be able to admire a selection of some of the Group’s most successful models: the Ferretti Yachts 960 and Ferretti Yachts 750 representing Ferretti Yachts, the Itama 62’ for Itama, the Rivarama Super and the Rivale for Riva, and the Dolphin 74’ Cruiser representing the Mochi Craft brand.

Moreover, this year as well a highly-qualified, dedicated staff will accompany clients and prospects in exciting sea trials that will allow them to experience first-hand the true excellence of Ferretti Group yachts.

The two Italian premieres taking part at the 2014 Genoa International Boat Show:

The Ferretti Custom Line Navetta 28 can boast a wide range of new solutions. It is immediately recognisable for its unmistakable outer profile and for the panoramic dining area with circular sliding glazed doors ensuring a very flexible use of the upper deck. The spacious sun deck is a comfortable private deck, which, upon request, can be fitted with a Jacuzzi and an awning. On the main deck, an uninterrupted glazing stretches from stern to bow, while four innovative hull windows, installed for the first time on this model, can be admired on the lower deck at the height of the four guest cabins. The most important new feature on this yacht, however, can be found aft: it is the Dual Mode Transom (DMT), a Ferretti Group patent allowing to combine into one single system a float-in garage, a swimming platform lowering into the water, and a beach club of unprecedented size on models in this segment. Audio/video systems are also extremely innovative, thanks to the “VOTIS” (Videoworks One Touch Infotainment System) system, which allows to control the onboard entertainment system through an iPad, thereby replacing all the remote controls of the various appliances installed in the main-deck salon with one single device. This control system may also be extended to other areas of the yacht. As regards propulsion, the Ferretti Custom Line Navetta 28 is equipped with two MAN V8 1200 mhp engines, allowing it to reach a maximum speed of 16 knots and a cruising speed of 13.5 knots. The yacht is also fitted with standard electro-hydraulic underway fins and gyroscopic stabilisers.

The Pershing 70 strikes for its futuristic look and innovative design, characterised by two large structural wings that make it look like a ‘fighter plane’ converted into a yacht. It is easily recognisable for its aerodynamic shape, elegant style and unique performances, as it 'flies' over the water at maximum speed. The interiors too stand out for their innovative layout and décor, which stands out for a skilful use of contrasting colours throughout the main deck and in the galley and the three guest cabins below deck. This new 70-footer – the symbol of a new generation of Pershing yachts – will undoubtedly conquer those owners looking for emotions, power, beauty, technology and safety. The yacht is fitted with twin MTU 10V 2000 M94 engines (developing a power of 1,623 mhp), combined with a Top System 85P surface drive system, allowing to achieve a maximum speed of 46 knots and a cruising speed of 40 knots.
