Ferretti Group attended the 60th edition of the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show with a fleet of 16 boats including 2 premieres for the American market, as well as a brand new project.
Of particular note, the new TØ Project by Pershing was unveiled. Ferretti Group announced that the brand aims to “redefine the boundaries of the yacht segment between 25 and 40 metres” with this new model. Pershing will debut the new product range, flanked by the Generation X, featuring new technology, high-performance and the style of Fulvio De Simoni.
Making its debut at Fort Lauderdale, the Ferretti Yachts 720 features the distinctive traits of the Ferretti Yachts fleet, with dynamic and harmonious lines.
Also debuting was the 48 Wallytender. This model is characterised by spaces on deck, generous interior volumes and special technical solutions that enhance the pleasure of cruising.
“Ferretti Group is moving forward safely and increasingly at the centre of the scene, just like the majestic fleet we brought to Fort Lauderdale, a marvel of strength and beauty in which two premieres stand out, the fantastic Ferretti Yachts 720 and the ingenious 48 Wallytender, as well as the many projects we have in the pipeline,” said Ferretti Group CCO Stefano de Vivo.
During the annual media meeting, Stefano de Vivo, Sales Director, illustrated the Group’s successes at the end of the European season of boat shows and summer events.
In the first nine months of 2019, Ferretti Group collected orders for over 465 million euro, an increase of 18% compared to the first nine months of 2018, thanks also to the launch of five new models under the Riva, Pershing, Ferretti Yachts and Custom Line brands and to the relaunch of the Wally brand.
Among the vessels presented in preview is the Riva 130′ flybridge, a project with the Officina Italiana Design, and the CRN projects:
Then the new Custom Line: Custom Line 140′, the third of the brand’s planing line designed by Francesco Paszkowski Design, Navetta 30 and Navetta 48, in collaboration with the architect Filippo Salvetti for the exterior design and Citterio-Viel studio for the interiors.
Other great previews include the highly anticipated Wally 101 – the first project that marks Ferretti Group’s debut in the sailing sector – and the 165 Wallypower, the result of a collaboration with Luca Bassani and Espen Øino.
The meeting also saw the presentation of the restyling of Ferretti Yachts 920 PURE, which will present a completely different style of the interiors and will arrive on the American market between February and March 2020.
