A special gift for Ferreti Yachts anniversary
A prestigious sponsorship with Andrea Dovizioso
Thanks to the sponsorship agreement announced during the press conference at Boot Düsseldorf, Ferretti Yachts will be featured on the race suit of the champion from Forlì in all the 19 rounds of MotoGP 2018. The sponsorship was announced during the Group’s press conference at Boot Düsseldorf, Germany’s leading boat show, where Ferretti Yachts is showcasing the Ferretti Yachts 920 in world première and the Ferretti Yachts 450. On the same day the Group launched the official opening of the 50th anniversary celebrations.
Andrea Dovizioso, welcomed the news of the sponsorship with the following enthusiastic words: ‘Ferretti Yachts is the dream boatyard. Ever since I was a little boy, I was fascinated by the magnificent yachts I saw being transported along the road, bound for the sea. Now, having this world-renowned winner brand on my racing suit gives me a special boost and makes me very proud. After a fantastic 2017, 2018 is a crucial year for me, and this sponsorship will stimulate me into performing even better.’
Alberto Galassi, CEO of the Ferretti Group, warmly welcomed the agreement between Ferretti Yachts and Andrea Dovizioso, and had this to say: ‘Seeing these two champions of Italian excellence coming together makes me extremely proud. We wondered for a long time what would be the most appropriate way to celebrate the 50th anniversary of Ferretti Yachts, and the sponsorship of Andrea seemed like the most natural and most rewarding choice for one of our best-known brands. Andrea is a ‘product of excellence’, if I may put it that way, of our local area, a huge champion and a longstanding friend of our boatyard. His courage, his personality, and his talent are the same qualities that have led Ferretti Yachts to produce world-class boats. 2018 is going to be a great year for this outstanding motorcycle racer and for our extraordinary yachts.’
