Ferretti Yachts presents their new flagship: the Ferretti Yachts 1000

Ferretti Yachts presents their new flagship: the Ferretti Yachts 1000

“The Ferretti Yachts 1000 changes how we imagine spaces, with cutting-edge design solutions that revolutionise how we experience yachts”. These words alone are enough to encapsule the introduction of Ferretti Yachts’ brand new flagship, the Ferretti Yachts 1000, measuring 30.13 metres in all-out length. Classic and Contemporary are the two configurations available for the Ferretti Yachts 1000, the brainchild of a partnership between the Product Strategic Committee, chaired by Piero Ferrari, the Engineering Department of Ferretti Group itself and architect Filippo Salvetti, whose contribution can be seen in the unique exterior design choices inspired by the same dynamic lines that derive from the design philosophy at the heart of all of the most recent models to join the line-up. The interiors, on the other hand, and the brand new concept behind their design, are the work of Ideaeitalia, featuring versatile spaces and a layout that gives the owner space to

Sanlorenzo launches their eighth 500Exp

Sanlorenzo launches their eighth 500Exp

Now that eight models have been launched, the eighth from La Spezia where Sanlorenzo’s “Superyacht” headquarters is located, and a ninth has already been sold, it is safe to say the 500Exp is among the most sought after 40 to 70-metre designs flying the colours of Massimo Perotti’s shipyard, Former President of the Italian Marine Industry Association.   Measuring 47 metres in length and featuring similar lines to those of an exploration ship, the 500Exp combines vast spaces (vast enough to include a touch-and-go helipad, something yachts under the 50-metre mark usually cannot afford) and Sanlorenzo’s unmistakable hallmark elegance, implementing cutting-edge construction technology, furnishing techniques and systems engineering.   With an aft deck broad enough to contain a 9-metre sailing boat and spacious, interiors that envelope owners and guests in a world of refined materials and exclusive furniture, the eighth 500Exp by Sanlorenzo provides 4,000 miles of autonomy, allowing the

A record quarter for Ferretti Group

A record quarter for Ferretti Group

An unequivocal symbol of the economy’s recovery in Italy and abroad, this quarter’s 40% leap in revenue compared to the first three months of 2020 marks a record quarter for the Ferretti Group, soaring from 133 million euros last year to 186 million in 2021. The Ferretti Group’s impressive increase in revenue is not the only record they are celebrating this quarter: a record number of 56 launches was also achieved, deriving from practically every shipyard within the Group (memorable launches include that of the 50-metre Riva “Fifty”, the brand new Ferretti Yacht 1000 and the Navetta 30 Custom Line), compared to the 43 launches reached last year. The boom in launches this year also included sailing yachts such as the Wally 101, the first unit sold by the brand since joining the Ferretti Group.

A first glimpse of the Endurance 60 by Pardo Yachts

Cantieri Mostes’ new Awake – where motor meets sail

Cantieri Mostes’ new Awake – where motor meets sail

Built by Cantieri Mostes in Genoa and designed by yacht designer Paolo Cori, the Awake, a sloop measuring 22.16 metres in length, aims to combine the pleasures of fast sailing with the comforts of a motor yacht. Featuring an overall sail surface reaching almost 200 square metres, along with an impressive 340 Hp with double Stern drive, the stern thrusters of which rise up into the hull when unused in order to reduce water resistance, the Awake provides a deck inspired by the highest standards of comfort, with a double cockpit, and safety, featuring a raised gunwale. As for interiors, the owner’s cabin and common areas, like the dining and kitchen areas, are located on the same level as the cockpit, offering the sensation of, as Cantieri Mostes defines it, living “at sea level”. A quality that aligns perfectly with the highest levels of performance. The new design from Cantieri
