Ferretti Group has reported a record-breaking amount of orders in September, exceeding US$254 million.
September is traditionally the busiest month in the boating industry in Europe, with a plethora of boating shows. This year included the Cannes Yachting Festival, Genoa International Boat Show, and the Monaco Yacht Show, and the Ferretti Group showed up and showed out at all of them.
For the first nine months of the year, the group’s sales have exceeded US$1.04 billion. The figures include growth in steel and aluminium superyachts built at the Ancona Superyacht Yard, which produces the largest Riva and Pershing models and CRN’s superyachts.
The group also delivered over 160 boats from January to September including Fifty, the second hull of Riva’s flagship 50 Metri model.
CEO of Ferretti Group Alberto Galassi said: “For Ferretti Group, 2021 is like one of those wonderful films that make you dream from beginning to end. It got off to a great start and is continuing to deliver spectacular results, with great plot twists like outstanding performances put in by steel and aluminium superyachts. But the excitement isn’t over yet, with a few more months of nice surprises ahead and what is bound to be a grand finale.”
