Ferretti Group sails high seas at Hong Kong’s 2014 Marina Cove Boat Show
Hong Kong, December 5th, 2014 – Ferretti Group, a world leader in the design, construction and sale of luxury motor yachts, with a unique portfolio of prestigious, and some of the most exclusive brands in the global nautical market, will showcase its fleet at the Hong Kong International Boat Show that will take place from 5th to 7th December 2014 at Club Marina Cove. At this long-standing event that has maintained a 20-year success rate, the Group will display its fleet, characterized by inimitable attention to detail that is typical of Made in Italy craftsmanship and outstanding performance at sea, including Ferretti Yachts 690, Custom Line Navetta 26 Crescendo and Riva Iseo.
Ferretti Group's continuous approach to innovation and research, along with constant improvement in the performance and design of its products, leads the Company towards the highest industrial benchmarks and development of cutting-edge solutions. The design of Ferretti Yachts 690, Ferretti Custom Line Navetta 26 Crescendo and Riva Iseo represents a superb blend of timeless appeal and creative excellence.
“Hong Kong is extremely important for the Ferretti Group in Asia Pacific. It still has huge potential, even if the lack of berths affects the general market situation slightly, since the wealth is widespread and people desire to own a yacht”, commented Stefano de Vivo, Chief Commercial Officer of Ferretti Group. “The Ferretti Group has gained a very good reputation in the past years, thanks to the opening of its Hong Kong subsidiary. And we’re proud to announce that in the last weeks, two new yachts landed in Hong Kong: Custom Line Navetta 33 Crescendo and Ferretti Yachts 650. Being both Asia Pacific premières, we look forward to displaying them soon in 2015.”
The three vessels on display include:
Ferretti Yacht 690, the outcome of the cooperation between Studio Zuccon International Project and AYT&D, the Group Research and Development Department, marks an important step forward for the Ferretti Yachts fleet of crafts between 60 and 80 feet in length. The extensive use of glazed surfaces, in particular, makes the yacht’s exterior look lighter and ensures that plenty of natural light can brighten its interiors. Its sleek outer lines are further enhanced by the innovative flybridge, characterised by an elongated tail.
Navetta 26 Crescendo, a 26-metre long yacht, is one of the most celebrated models of Custom Line’s semi-displacement series. The unique design features soft-cut classical lines and innovative design solutions that have been sophisticatedly weaved into the nautical brand to increase on-board space. With a spacious sun deck and extended ports on the main and upper deck, this ocean voyager also offers the enjoyment of viewing while staying true to the focus on leisurely cruising.
The Ferretti Group fleet also features Riva Iseo, the 27-foot day-cruiser destined as a must-have for lovers of design and boating on lakes as well as in the open seas. Iseo is an owner-operated vessel with distinct characteristics, elegant features and ease of transportation. Perfection and style have made Riva a true icon of timeless glamour and elegance worldwide, since more than 170 years. Soft, clean-cut lines, thorough space-planning, careful and indeed unique attention to detail along with the use of highly sophisticated materials are the distinctive characteristics that make Iseo a noble heiress to a centuries-old history of excellence and craftsmanship.
