Hard on the heels of its resounding success at the Mediterranean boat shows, Ferretti Group sets sail for Fort Lauderdale to take part in the most important boat show in the United States.

The extraordinary fleet of 12 boats - representing the Riva, Pershing, Wally and Ferretti Yachts brands - includes four stand-out premieres for the American market.

At the US boat show, held from October 27 to 31 at the Bahia Mar Resort & Yachting Center, the Group will present four sensational models that are making their debut on the American market and have already won over the public in Europe: the Pershing 6X, the fleet flagship Ferretti Yachts 1000, the Ferretti Yachts 780 flybridge, and the Riva 88' Folgore sport-fly.

The premieres will be joined by a selection of the most representative models in the Ferretti Group fleet:

  • Ferretti Yachts 720 and Ferretti Yachts 920
  • Rivamare, Dolceriva and 56' Rivale, for the Riva brand
  • Pershing 7X and Pershing 8X
  • 48wallytenderX for the Wally brand

"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."

At the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show 2021, Ferretti Group continues to collaborate with leading Italian and international brands: Cipriani Food will provide the catering for guests and customers; Dolce & Gabbana created the official staff uniform; FIJI Water will be the official water at the stand; Jaguar Land Rover is the automotive partner; La Scolca will delight visitors with its selection of wines and Cincoro Tequila will offer tasting of its products; Seabob with limited edition water toys created for the Group; Slam, official supplier of Ferretti Group crew uniforms; Poltrona Frau and StudioKaza, creators of the official furnishings for the show; Pommery, the champagne served to guests.

The American Premieres At The Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show

Pershing 6X

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.
