“It has been an exciting year, to say the least, for Ferretti Group and our boats, and we come to Fort Lauderdale in our best shape ever. The Americas is a market of great strategic importance, in which we have invested heavily to consolidate our presence and better serve our local customers, with the support of our exclusive dealer Allied Marine,” explained Ferretti Group CEO Alberto Galassi. “And it was right here in Fort Lauderdale, which every year hosts the world’s largest boat show, that in 2020 we acquired a shipyard to expand our refit and after-sales services operations. Which is why at this year’s show we feel very much at home and eagerly await the opportunity to present our magnificent boats to the American public, fresh from their triumphant tour of the European shows.”

THE AMERICAN PREMIERES AT THE FORT LAUDERDALE INTERNATIONAL BOAT SHOW
The new entry in the Generation X range expresses the brand’s boldest and most daring side. Born from collaboration between the Ferretti Group Product Strategy Committee, the design firm headed by Fulvio De Simoni, and the Group’s Engineering Department, Pershing 6X turns heads with its highly aerodynamic profile and large glazed surfaces in the hull that flood the lower deck with natural light.
At 18.94 meters (about 62 feet) in length and 4.80 meters (about 16 feet) wide, this yacht packs all the best of Pershing’s leading-edge technology into a compact form factor and, with a top speed of 48 knots, promises to appeal to owners who love excitement on the water.
FERRETTI YACHTS 1000
The new Ferretti Yachts flagship is the largest boat ever built by the shipyard. Made from composite materials, with parts in carbon fibre that underscore the hi-tech content, Ferretti Yachts 1000 reshapes space and changes the whole approach to life on board, with unprecedented design solutions and an interior mood either in Classic style, featuring muted, balanced tones and subtle contrasts, or a Contemporary option with fresher and bolder colour shades. At the heart of the project is the idea of unparalleled comfort and wellbeing in both outdoor and indoor areas, where quintessential ‘Made in Italy’ taste prevails.
FERRETTI YACHTS 780
This flybridge yacht, with its streamlined design, sleek lines and sharp styling, satisfies the owner’s every wish in terms of comfort, style, seaworthiness and safety at sea.
After the recent major restyling, Ferretti Yachts 780 features extensive glazed surfaces in the hull, giving the sleek and streamlined profile a sportier look, new furnishings, with an enlarged bar in a central position in the standard layout, and redesigned interiors, with the possibility of choosing between two moods: classic or contemporary.
RIVA ’88 FOLGORE
Riva 88’ Folgore, heir to one of the brand’s top best sellers, presents new features in the exterior and interior design, in the ergonomics and in the materials used.
An exciting synthesis of innovative vision and legendary styling, this sport-fly achieves a happy balance between past and present, combining the use of innovative materials like carbon fibre with stylistic features typical of the Riva tradition, including the mahogany inlays and steel decorations.
