The new flagship hits the water in Cattolica, the first unit is for a French owner.
Cattolica, March 12th, 2021 – Space for onboard comfort and wellbeing; space for timeless design and ‘Made in Italy’ craftsmanship. The first Ferretti Yachts 1000, the shipyard’s first 100% wide-body vessel, has been launched in Cattolica for a French owner.
The launch represents the culmination of a design process driven by the quest for perfection: extraordinary investments in Research and Development, thousands of hours of naval design, long-term mould prototyping at the Plug & Mould factory in Forlì, and the equally long and delicate construction phase at the Cattolica shipyard. The result is a remarkable new flagship made up of talent and technology, the ability to innovate and craftsmanship.
Majestic, versatile and suited to all markets, Ferretti Yachts 1000 reshapes space and changes the whole approach to life on board with unprecedented design solutions and an interior mood in Classic style, featuring soft, balanced colour tones and subtle contrasts. 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. The suavely understated design, featuring clean lines and sophisticated materials, conveys a sense of refined luxury and is the ideal interpretation of the values expressed by the “Just Like Home” claim: comfort, Italian style, timeless design and craftsmanship.
While only just unveiled, Ferretti Yachts 1000 looks set to be a huge success and the first three units have already been sold.
“The new flagship is an exciting choral work permeated by the flair, vision and passion of so many skilled and talented people who represent the winning factor for Ferretti Yachts. To them all I’d like to offer my heartfelt thanks for how they have completed an extraordinary project like Ferretti Yachts 1000 in such a complicated year,” commented Ferretti Group CEO Alberto Galassi. “This fantastic yacht really is a beautiful private island on which to imagine your future, in contact with the sea and the finest ‘Made in Italy’ marine expertise.”
Ferretti Yachts 1000 is the result of collaboration between the Product Strategy Committee led by Mr. Piero Ferrari, the Ferretti Group Engineering Department, architect Filippo Salvetti for the exteriors and Ideaeitalia for the new interior concept.
The Riva flagship hit the water during a private launch ceremony at the Riva Superyachts Division shipyard in Ancona.
Ancona, March 8th, 2021 – Bringing more beauty to the sea and the world, the magnificent new Riva 50, Metri M/Y “Fifty”, now rides the waves, ready to captivate everyone who sets eyes on her.
The great dream inspired by the genius of Carlo Riva, with the celebrated “Caravelle” and “Atlantic” series motoryachts of the 1960s and 70s, becomes a reality again.
50 metres long and with a maximum beam of nine metres, M/Y “Fifty” was developed by the Riva Superyacht Division to offer an outstanding cruising experience defined by comfort, attention to detail and an evolved vision of life at sea: values that have made Riva a legendary name in international yachting for the last 179 years.
She interprets Riva’s classic stylistic and aesthetic hallmarks with accurate sophistication, not least in terms of the colour, a wonderful blue-tinged shark grey, and the exteriors, which feature style elements and materials – mahogany, steel and glass – that tell an unparalleled legend of elegance.
“Riva M/Y ‘Fifty’ is the demonstration that we Italians know how to imagine and realise masterpieces like no one else in the world. And at this difficult time, my thanks goes to everyone whose skills and efforts have helped build this magnificent ship.” – said Ferretti Group CEO Alberto Galassi. – “Once upon a time, the expression ‘written on water’ was used to describe actions that have a fleeting impact. But what we have written on the water today in Ancona is another unforgettable and glorious page in Riva’s history. My recommendation for those in search of great emotions is to take a look at this new Riva and the breathtaking way she shines with style, legend and innovation, all thanks to the talent and expertise of the workers involved.”
A masterpiece of style, Riva 50 Metri is the result of collaboration between Officina Italiana Design, the firm founded by Mauro Micheli and Sergio Beretta and the exclusive designer of all Riva models, and the team created to develop Riva’s new superyachts with the Product Strategy Committee led by Mr. Piero Ferrari.
