With two new yachts on display for the first time in the Americas, Ferretti Yachts 550 and Riva 88′ Florida, along with a fleet of other 15 models branded Ferretti Yachts, Riva and Pershing, Ferretti Group celebrate this year at the 56th Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show 70 years of success of its subsidiary Allied Marine, whose order book saw double digit growth in the first 10 months of 2015. The firm, founded in Miami in 1945, is one of the main players in the United States today, offering after sales services, trade and brokerage of motor yachts. Ferretti Group also confirmed their expansion strategy for 2015-2017, based on 3 core pillars: financial stability, credibility and investment in R&D for the development and production of new models.
“I believe the excellent results we have seen in recent months confirm we have been making the right choices, also in light of the many excellent new products we are showing at all of the main international boat shows, where we are well and truly ahead of the game” – stated Alberto Galassi, Ferretti Group CEO.
During the Group’s press conference for the opening of the show, Mr. Alberto Galassi shared some of the most significant results enjoyed during the first ten months of the year in the Americas, where the Group has a consolidated serial order intake worth 99 million USD as of 31st October 2015, an increase of 28% compared to 31st October 2014. At global level, the Group’s consolidated order intake was worth 320 million Euro as of 31st October 2015, an increase of 75% compared to the first ten months of 2014.
The consolidation of the Group’s market presence in the Americas continued through 2015 with the expansion of its Sales Centers in North America and Mexico (Fort Lauderdale, Palm Beach, Great Lakes, Canada, Miami Beach, Sag Harbor, Huntington, Newport Beach, and most recently Mexico City) as well as of its sales network in Central and South America, especially Venezuela, Panama, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Guatemala, Chile and Peru, where Ferretti Group America is planning to open a new Sales Center in the coming months to support the constantly growing markets in the country and surrounding areas.
The Group’s positive performance in the Americas has also been a boost for its subsidiary Allied Marine, whose order book saw double digit growth in the first 10 months of 2015. Allied Marine will have its own stand at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show and will be showing its fleet made of 15 yachts. The firm was founded in Miami in 1945 and is one of the main players in the United States today, offering after sales services, trade and brokerage of motor yachts.
The major investments Ferretti Group has made in product research and development, topping 50 million Euro, have led to the launch of 6 new models in 2015, planning to launch 27 yachts between 2015 and 2017.
