“Ferretti Group has been present at all the major yachting events across the world. We were looking forward to coming back here ‘at home’ in Fort Lauderdale, where our amazing Corporate showroom may host 365-days a year our American clients in a permanent show”, stated Alberto Galassi, Ferretti Group CEO.
“During the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show week our effort will ramp up to welcome customers, friends and guests in such a huge exposition. We’ll offer the chance to explore our large and extraordinary fleet and to experience first-hand and feel the various identities of each brand in the Ferretti Group portfolio. The six eagerly awaited yachts making their US debut reflect the great innovation achieved by our yachts and the Group’s actual success. They will undoubtedly play a large role in our continuous growth in the Americas.”
Moreover, the sophisticated and cutting-edge design of the new Ferretti Group booth, where the customers will be hosted from Thursday 3rd to Monday 7th is in line with an important design philosophy that debuted for the first time in the US last February, at the Yachts Miami Beach.
The new booth design has already received a nomination as Best Retail Marketing Initiative for the Boat Builder Awards 2016. It has a modern openness, that feels spacious at all times and welcomes natural light inside at all times.
The lounge areas are “signed” by different colours and style concepts, which mark the uniqueness of each of the seven Ferretti Group brands.
At the Fort Lauderdale Boat Show Ferretti Group will partner with the prestigious Pommery champagne house while Pershing is continuing its 2016 partnership with Lamborghini, offering an extraordinary driving experience during the show.
The US debuts at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show
Ferretti Yachts 850
The new luxurious Ferretti Yachts 850 transforms the unique livability and openness found in contemporary lofts to a life at sea. A luxurious flybridge that offers the experience of living in a loft surrounded by the sea, is the latest masterpiece in the nearly fifty-year history of a brand that has conquered all major international markets. With six units sold, the new yacht is already an extraordinary international success.
The first model of the "Generation X" Pershing is the new coupe of the fleet: more and more advanced, more and more surprising. The letter X - aeronautical code referring to extreme performance and technological evolution - evokes that inexhaustible urge to discover new horizons at great speed. Lines, propulsion, performance and style of Pershing 5X have captivated audiences, with multiple units already sold.
Pershing 74 new version
The Pershing 74 restyling is the ninth new model that Ferretti Group has launched in 2016. Designers and architects of the Group’s Engineering Department worked hard to offer new decor solutions to match Owners feelings and personal tastes. Like Pershing 5X, the new Pershing 74 installs the new EASYDOCK system, developed jointly by Pershing and Top System as exclusive feature of the brand
The aesthetically classic, yet thoroughly modern Rivamare redefines elegance and plays the leading role in a new chapter in Riva’s more than 170-year history. The new open model from Sarnico is shaped by a retro profile with seemingly continuous lines that go from bow to stern. Traditional Riva elements like chrome and mahogany blend perfectly with modern materials like carbon fibre and stainless steel, to make it an instant, contemporary classic. The Rivamare can proudly join the ranks of true masterpieces like the Aquariva Super and Aquarama.
Custom Line 108’
The planing maxi yacht reaches the heights of excellence in yachting thanks to a skilful combination of distinctive features: a sporty spirit, a refined design, spacious volumes, cutting-edge technological solutions, and extremely refined interiors, tailor-made to the Owner's taste and requirements. Characterized by stylish finishes and original contrasts, further highlighted by exclusive furniture and the greatest possible care for details, the Custom Line 108’ embodies a new concept of luxury, with a truly ‘noble’ touch. The Custom Line 108’ is also fitted with the patented Dual Mode Transom device and the innovative ‘VOTIS’ (Videoworks One Touch Infotainment System) infotainment system.
Custom Line Navetta 28
The Custom Line Navetta 28 is defined by innovation and shaped by an exquisite design. Sleek, sporty lines and large glass surfaces are integral parts of the yacht’s appearance. It’s welcoming, yet modern interior, brought to life with the most luxurious furnishings and materials, reflects Custom Line’s identity, to even the smallest of details. This year, Custom Line celebrates its 20th anniversary: the arrival of Navetta 28 in Fort Lauderdale marks another milestone in brand’s successful history.
