The history of the Ferretti shipyards begins in 1968 when Norberto Ferretti's passion for the sea inspired his brother Alessandro. They together began an adventure that would lead them to become one of the most prestigious shipyards on the world stage.  They began with selling well-known boats such as Chris Craft, San Lorenzo and Italcraft, to the decision to begin a company of their own. The boats they sold were beautiful, but they did not fully express that sailing philosophy of Norberto.  In the year 1971 Ferretti manufactured its first 10-meter wooden “motor sailer” boat but the wish of innovation, limited to the features of sailing boats, led Ferretti brothers to seek to fulfill their desire of improvement. At the beginning of the 1980s the Ferretti brothers decided to embark upon the world of motor yachts.

The era of 1990s were characterized by a series of commercial and financial activities designed to affirm the name of Ferretti on the seas all over the world. Ferretti Yachts division was created in September 2002, a historic brand of the group, production and marketing fibreglass fly bridge boats from 47 to 88 feet. Since 1st of September 2006 the team Ferretti Yachts has also been dealing with the management of the brand Custom Line. And with this in the year 2008 Ferretti Yachts celebrated its 40 years of history.

Ferretti shipyard focuses on the evolution, innovation and design of new luxury motor yachts. It also introduced the ARG system, developed with Mitsubishi, and the large open-view window of the ship owner's cabin in almost all models in the range is the company’s forte. Within the Group, a specialized team follows the creation of each vessel, assisted by the AYT Division - Advanced Yacht Technology - that deals with new concepts and fine-tuning extremely innovative solutions. In addition, the Ferretti fleet is also renowned for being the first to adopt the new revolutionary generation of Common-rail engines. A new, important technological innovation: FAIR (Ferretti Analysis Integral Recorder), is the very first integrated system for monitoring the performance of group yachts during testing, enabling not only simultaneous acquisition of operating data, but also their analysis and processing.

Luxury yacht by Ferretti received numerous awards over the years, with two of the Ferretti Yachts,  510 and the Navetta 26 Ferretti Custom Line receiving the Millennium Yacht Design Award (MYDA) at the Italian shipbuilding show Seatec 2008.
