Ferretti Yachts, a historical brand of the Ferretti Group producing flybridge motoryachts measuring 15 to 27 metres, confirms its presence at the 50th Salon Nautique de Paris to be held from 4th to 12th December.
The shipyard will display the new jewel of the fleet, Ferretti 500, through exclusive Ferretti Yachts dealer for France, Abys Yachting. Presented as a preview at the last Genoa Boat Show, this model is the re-examination of the famous Ferretti 470, one of the bestsellers in the Ferretti Yachts entrance level range. Therefore, clients will be able to visit the yachts in Paris and experience Ferretti Yachts Excellence - a concentrate of style, innovation and on-board comfort - firsthand.
Alessandro Tirelli, Ferretti Yachts Brand Manager, commented “We’re proud to take part in the 50th Paris boat show, and this year’s edition has been renewed and the exhibition areas improved. France is one of our Owners’ favourite destinations hence, besides the Festival de la Plaisance di Cannes, we believe in the importance of the Salon Nautique de Paris. Indeed, it provides us with further opportunity to meet with both our clients and prospective clients. We have noticed signs of a recovery on the French market, especially within the 50 to 60 foot band. This has also been possible through the work carried out by our dealer, Abys Yachting, and is the reason we wanted to attend this boat show, displaying the latest model designed and produced by Ferretti Yachts, Ferretti 500”.
“We signed a dealeshipr agreement with Abys Yachting about a year ago, and are here today thanks to them.” continued Tirelli “Indeed, through their professionalism and capillary network throughout the most strategic areas of the Côte d’Azur, they have confirmed themselves an excellent partner. We are working with Abys Yachting to consolidate our sales on the market north of the Alps and the first few results achieved since the beginning of the nautical year make us very proud. Indeed, the Mediterranean nautical culture in this area discovered and joined the Ferretti Yachts style some time ago, with owners acknowledging the superior quality and innovative content of our products”.
At over 15 metres in length, Ferretti 500 maintains some of the strong points of the entry level range of models, featuring unique solutions which further optimise on board space. The clearest example of this is the position of the galley astern, with the aim of achieving greater liveability. The tilting window can be opened to create a single open space area comprising the cockpit, galley and living area. This model is a perfect balance between external and internal spaces, which takes shape in the extension of the cockpit surface area to increase the liveability of this area of the yacht. Moreover, work on the interior décor gives this model a renewed sense of contemporary classicism, in line with the entire Ferretti Yachts range.
As indeed all those in the Ferretti Yachts range, Ferretti 500 is the result of the working relationship between Architect Gianni Zuccon from Studio Zuccon International Project together with the AYT â€“ Advanced Yacht Technology, the Ferretti Group’s naval research and design centre, and the team of architects and designers at Centro Stile Ferrettigroup.
