A look at Ferretti Yachts - Video

Ferretti Yachts

When one given passion continues for over four decades, it becomes history. Brothers Alessandro and Norberto Ferretti founded Ferretti in 1968, a symbolic year for the history of both the world and the sea. Three years later, in 1971, their first wooden motor sailer enjoyed great success when presented at the Genoa Boat Show. Fitted with both a sail and an engine, the yacht was 10 metres in length and especially comfortable for cruises. The brothers’ lucky intuition meant that soon afterwards Ferretti was listed amongst the most prestigious shipyards in the world.
In 1982, Ferretti presented its first motor yacht and began building sport fisherman models too, both open and flybridge. These yachts already featured revolutionary innovations which are still applied throughout the nautical industry today: a stern helm position, swinging windows in the salon which open out onto the cockpit, and an internal passage from the salon to the flying bridge. The nineties were characterised by research and development within the sphere of nautical engineering through establishment of the Engineering division, and winning performances in Offshore competitions. Over the next few years, the company expanded to encompass its current range, renewed year after year with cutting-edge design solutions.
