Forlì - 17 May 2016 - Giuseppe Bucci
These words, spoken by Alberto Galassi, the managing director of the Ferretti Group, perfectly sum up the philosophy of a group that includes some of the most renown brands in the world of nautical luxury “Made in Italy”, including Riva, Pershing, Ferretti Yachts, Itama, Mochi Craft, Custom Line and CRN. A world leader for over 40 years, masters of design, construction and the commercialisation of luxury motor yachts, the Ferretti Group is all about passion, innovation and excellence, a continuous effort to achieve technological excellence, high-performance, exclusive design and best possible on-board comfort. Ferretti is the heir to centuries of Italian nautical experience – a company with an eye for detail when it comes to quality, artisan workmanship and technological innovation.
The Cannes Yachting festival is the first meeting of the new nautical season for major producers and yacht lovers. This year the Ferretti Group presented a prestigious fleet of 21 vessels including six splendid vessels on display for the first time. These included the Ferretti Yachts 550, a new flybridge which joins elegance and the sporting spirit, and the Ferretti Yachts 700 with its aggressive profile, one of the most sporty models ever produced.
Among the novelties of the cult brand Riva is the 76’ Perseo, the new elegant sporty coupe along with the Riva 88’ Florida, the first convertible luxury motor yacht. The third novelty from Riva is the dark grey “London Grey” 88’ Domino Super. Lovers of absolute comfort will adore the Custom Line 108’, a giant dynamic yacht with a highly elegant design, plenty of space, and sophisticated interiors which can be personalised along with avant-garde technology.
At the Monaco Yachts Show the Ferretti Group revealed three gems: the M/Y Yalla 73 m, the first CRN yacht built on a 13 m wide naval platform to encourage socialising and partying on board while the M/Y Saramour 61 m is the first CRN mega-yacht designed by Francesco Paszkowski. It is 61 m long and 11 m wide, laid out on five decks, characterised by timeless design with minimal interior decor in order to highlight the precious on-board art collection, and then there is the M/Y Atlante 55 m yacht with its strong stylish character recalling aspects of a military vessel, a chiseled design with angular lines and innovative features.
The flagship of Custom Line is the 124, a light streamlined vessel while the excitedly awaited Pershing 140 represents the entry of the brand into the superyacht league. The Navetta 37 is a powerful dynamic megayacht which will be on the market from next summer when the company will be celebrating its first 20 years of activity.
