Singapore, April 10th, 2014 – Ferretti Group, one of the leading world players in the design, construction and sale of luxury motor yachts, with a unique portfolio of some of the most exclusive and prestigious brands worldwide, is taking part in Singapore Yacht Show from April 10th-13th at ONE°15 Marina Club, Sentosa Cove, Singapore. Ferretti Group appeared at the show alongside Singaporean dealer Hong Seh to present three models: Riva 75’ Venere, SportRiva 56’ and Pershing 64.
The Singapore Yacht show is one of the most celebrated international yachting events on the global calendar. This exclusive event epitomises luxury, bringing together world-class yachts, glamorous social settings, high-end entertainment, and an enviable range of prestige products and brands into the ultimate luxury experience. In such an exclusive setting the Ferretti Group brands will be represented by three iconic designs featuring the very finest of the brands design heritage.
Also in attendance are executives from Ferretti Group and partners. Fabiomassimo Discoli, Ferretti Group Asia Pacific Sales Manager, and Edward Tan, Hong Seh Trading Executive Director, presented at the press conference, demonstrating the total commitment of Ferretti Group to the Singapore market.
“Singapore is a perfect market for the Ferretti Group - stated Fabiomassimo Discoli. We have a long history of giving our customers here the very best. Over the coming years we will strengthen our presence through the invaluable assistance offered by our partner Hong Seh. As our long-serving and valued partner in this region, we know that Hong Seh is part of the Ferretti Group family. Since Hong Seh was appointed dealer of Riva in 2008 and dealer of Ferretti and Pershing in 2013, the success that we have had in this market really speaks for itself.”
“Singapore Yacht Show is a world-class celebration of yachting culture in one of Asia’s most dynamic and beautiful cities - stated Edward Tan. It is an honour to be here with this three amazing Ferretti Group models on display, and be able to celebrate the opening of Hong Seh new flagship store in One° 15 Marina. It is a very important achievement that allow us to guest our clients the most beautiful location ever with Ferretti Group model berthed nearby. I would like to thank the support that Ferretti Group Asia Pacific gives to Hong Seh that Pershing 64, after attending PIMEX 2014 in Thailand last January, was sent to Singapore immediately and now is on display at SYS, together with two long seller brand Riva models. With the longstanding support from Ferretti Group, I look forward to a long and bright future for us both in this market.”
The new 75’ Venere Super is the latest edition of one of the shipyard’s most popular models. Developed by Officina Italiana Design, the designer of all the yachts in the Riva range, in association with AYT&D - Advanced Yacht Technology & Design (Ferretti Group’s naval research, development and style centre) this is a perfect demonstration of the Ferretti Group design ethos. Interiors and exteriors are rendered in painstaking detail, offering greater comfort during cruising and optimized space. The flybridge has been enriched with a hard top featuring an elegant, aerodynamic line and a comfortable, six-seater sofa. The overall feel is that of total elegance and luxury. An expansive window distinguishes the Roman Bronze hull, and highlights the elegance of the Riva Cream superstructure.
The SportRiva 56’ is a yacht which integrates the flybridge concept with the sporty lines of an Open, whilst still maintaining Riva’s style. Designed by the skilful hand of Mauro Micheli and the team at Officina Italiana Design, this model, set between the 52 and 63 feet of Rivale and Vertigo, has been studied to satisfy the demands of owners who seek the convenience of a closed, air-conditioned upper salon with the Open style. The SportRiva 56’ is sporty, aggressive and modern. Her lines give her a strongly dynamic appearance that, together with a number of highly innovative solutions, makes this an exceptionally progressive and dynamic design. This yacht exudes the taste of Riva’s long tradition of excellence.
In the Pershing 64, style, innovation, technology, and ultimate comfort are combined to outstanding effect. The Pershing 64 includes amongst its many features an elegant and harmonious long side window that gives the craft’s structure a particularly sleek appeal, as well as making the spacious saloon and helm station area bright and airy. The exterior is complete with the kind of luxuries usually only found on larger yachts, such as a double stairway that leads to a spacious cockpit. In terms of performance, the craft’s twin 1550 hp MAN engines and Arneson ASD 14L drives, with Rolla surface propellers, guarantee peak speeds of no less than 46 knots. This again demonstrates the boat’s remarkably high standards.
