Ferretti Group ends 2017 with record numbers
Confirmed as a world leader in yachting
After the award ‘Shipyard of the year’, Ferretti Group consolidates its leadership by closing 2017 with extraordinary results. The number of yachts built by the Group’s seven brands will reach, as of December 31, 159 units, an increase of 7.5% compared to the 148 boats built in 2016, which was already a record year with a 23% growth compared to 2015. The production value for the current year will be over 600 million euros. These figures, well above the industry’s global performance levels, confirm the value of an industrial and commercial strategy that envisaged the launch of 24 new models in three years, with an investment over € 50 million in research and development by the shareholders, Weichai Group and the Ferrari family.
The new Global Order Book for 2018 – the ranking of the 20 top yacht builders over 24 metres published by the UK edition of the prestigious ‘Boat International’ magazine – confirms yet again Ferretti Group’s importance in the industry. In particular, the Group ranked first for number of projects sold or under construction, with as many as 87 under the Ferretti Yachts, Pershing, Riva, Custom Line and CRN brands, 22,5% more compared to last year’s 71, and ranked second overall with 2,762 metres (9,061 feet) of super and mega yachts under construction.
