Forlì, 17th September 2014 - Ferretti Yachts, the iconic brand of the Ferretti Group representing the excellence of Made in Italy boating industry, has been awarded with an important international prize, celebrating one of its most recent jewels. The flagship Ferretti Yachts 960 has been awarded as the “Most Innovative” yacht during the Gala organized on the occasion of the “World Yachts Trophies” Award, assigned by the French publisher Luxmedia Group at the Cannes Yachting Festival 2014.
At the awarding ceremony, which took place on 13th September at the enchanting plage of the Intercontinental Carlton hotel in Cannes, the flagship Ferretti Yachts 960 has been awarded with the Innovation prize in the category including the best models presented in 2013 and 2014 between 80 and 120 feet.
The panel decided to assign this important award to Ferretti Yachts 960 specifically for the introduction of the aft floodable garage, which allows launching the tender in an extremely easy and safe way. Thanks to this system, which does not require the use of a davit, allows the guests to enjoy wider spaces and makes the operations of the crew easier.
This much-appreciated innovation has contributed to the positive sales trend of this model. 8 hulls have been sold in just one year, therefore leading the Group to install this solution on the latest models presented in Cannes. For example, on the brand new Ferretti Custom Line Navetta 28, further enriched by the Dual Mode Transom, the double movement door, which is an exclusive patent by Ferretti Group.
The award obtained at the “World Yachts Trophies” by Ferretti Yachts 960 joins the Motor Boat Awards 2014 in the “Custom Yachts” category, the award received in January on the occasion of the London Boat Show.
This success confirms the international appreciation for this yacht, resulting from the collaboration between Studio Zuccon International Project, AYT&D - Advanced Yacht Technology, the R&D department of the Group, and Centro Stile, which perfectly matches elegance, sportiness and remarkable performance with an innovative distribution of spaces and a cutting edge design.
