Ferretti Group is currently present at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show (FLIBS), debuting two new vessels: motor yacht Ferretti 550 and Riva 88’ Florida superyacht. The Group has launched six new models this year, with 27 yachts expected to hit the water between 2015 and 2017.
“Our expansion strategy for 2015-2017 is based on 3 core pillars: financial stability, credibility and investment in R&D for the development and production of new models, to grasp what is going on and stay ahead of market trends with the quality and style that are the hallmark of all the yachts of our brands,” said Alberto Galassi, Ferretti Group CEO. “I believe the excellent results we have seen in recent months confirm we have been making the right choices, also in light of the many excellent new products we are showing at all of the main international boat shows, where we are well and truly ahead of the game.”
Luxury yacht Ferretti 550 boasts a new hull design, reorganized engine and technical rooms, as well as a completely new interior layout. An amazing number of six of the brand’s new flybridge have been sold to customers between America, Europe, Middle East and Asia-Pacific, just two months since yacht’s unveiling.
Riva 88′ Florida was unveiled in Monaco last May and with three units already sold, Riva’s new masterpiece is the first of its kind: a sport yacht with a two-fold open and coupé design. She is the first convertible motor yacht, boasting a remarkable technological innovation, an exclusive patent by the Group: the Convertible Top.
