Dubai, 5th March 2014 – Ferretti Group, one of the leading world players in the design, construction and sale of luxury motor yachts, with a unique portfolio of some of the most exclusive and prestigious brands worldwide, is taking part in the 2014 Dubai International Boat Show, which is being held from 4th to 8th March, with a prestigious fleet of 5 of the most successful models of its brands, including 2 absolute premieres for the Middle East market: the Pershing 62 for the Pershing brand and the 68’ Ego Super for the Riva brand.
Through its local dealers Art Marine and Sea Pros the Group is also displaying several open models: the Iseo and Aquariva Super for the Riva brand and the Itama 45, representing the Itama brand.
The 2014 edition of the Dubai Boat Show marks another important achievement for the Ferretti Group and bears witness to the well-established success of its yachts throughout the Middle East. The 68' Ego Super, in particular, is one of the most successful models in Riva's coupe range, boasting almost 20 hulls built and sold on the leading international markets since the yacht's debut.
For the Pershing 62, instead, the Dubai International Boat Show is already the third international event since the yacht’s official launch at the latest Cannes boat show: following its world debut last September and its huge success among critics and public alike in late October at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show, the latest model in the Pershing range is indeed now reaching one of the most strategic markets in the EMEA region with is third hull.
The Dubai International Boat Show is one of the most important international trade fairs in this sector, featuring over 840 exhibitors from 50 different countries. The Show’s truly international dimension is also confirmed by its visitors: last year approximately 26,000 people, representing 76 countries, attended the Show.
“Taking part in the Dubai International Boat Show has a very special meaning for our Group, since Dubai is undoubtedly one of the richest cities in the world, as well as a reference location attracting leading personalities that can truly appreciate the exclusiveness of our yachts" - commented Ferretti Group’s CEO Ferruccio Rossi.
THE MIDDLE EAST PREMIERES AT DUBAI INTERNATIONAL BOAT SHOW
The natural evolution of Pershing 56’ and Pershing 58’, two of the brand’s most successful models, boasting more than 70 built and sold hulls overall, the new Pershing 62 immediately strikes for its streamlined, slender profile: the bottom line and the superstructure have indeed been designed to obtain a slim, fast yacht characterised by aggressive lines and a sporty personality, also thanks to the unique shape of the hull glazing - a typical feature in Pershing's new era that can now be found in this model too, preserving the family feeling and ensuring great brightness in the full-beam master cabin located amidships. The VIP cabin too benefits from two windows with portholes, which let it plenty of natural light. Pershing 62 is available in two versions: with three cabins and three heads with separate shower box or with two cabins – the master stateroom and the VIP cabin -, while the guest cabin is replaced by a living area.
RIVA 68’ EGO SUPER
The harmony of shape and elegance of space on the 68' Ego Super - highlighted by the contrast between the anthracite coloured hull and the desert sand coloured superstructure - have been matched by means of a careful, in-depth study of each and every detail and solution. In keeping with Riva tradition, the results are extremely elegant and highly innovative. The attention paid to technology, a feature which has accompanied Riva yachts from the shipyard's very origins, can also be found in the on-board systems. 68' Ego Super is, in fact, equipped with the PLC technology-based Gi8, which is applied to the entire set of on-board systems, and controls, manages and monitors all the services
