New Model: Ferretti 550

Ferretti has launched the first 550, the new model of the well-known brand, marking its return to the flybridge yachts production under 60 feet in length.  When the first 55 feet hull was set afloat at the Cesenatico quay, powerful feelings of pride stirred up in all Ferretti’s personnel of the shipyard in Forlì, where the yacht was built. Interior and exterior fit-out, as well as all technical testing - i.e. certification test approval by RINA performance tests, checking of all on-board equipment and systems - will be completed within the next few weeks. Although just set afloat, the new 55-footer by Ferretti Yachts already enjoys a commercial success: three units have already been sold way ahead of its official world premier at Cannes 2015 show, slated in Côte d’Azur coming September. This is yet another proof that Ferretti Yachts 550 has already captured the international yachting market.  While the first yacht is just about to be delivered to her French Owner, the second Ferretti Yachts 550 has been sold in the Principality of Monaco. A third unit was bought by a Dutch Owner.
