Sales in the Americas are trending up and Ferretti Group is taking a fantastic fleet of nine yachts to Miami, all sharing a winning formula: Made in Italy beauty and innovation, defined by cutting edge technology and a razor-sharp focus on sustainability.
The high-profile showcase in question is the Discover Boating Miami International Boat Show 2023, this year’s edition of the exclusive event born out of synergy between two storied shows – the Miami International Boat Show and the Miami Yacht Show – held from February 15 to 19 in Miami. In the spotlight: the two premieres on the Americas market.
Ferretti Yachts 860 expresses a cruising concept that puts harmony between stylistic and architectural elements front and center. Among the boat’s many new features, the design innovations that elevate Ferretti Yachts 860 above the standards of this market segment include the introduction of floor-to-ceiling windows and glass fashion plates, giving the hull a sleek and powerful silhouette.
The second premiere, wallypower58, embodies the understated elegance and stylistic purity that has always been a hallmark of the wallypower range. The most important innovation unveiled with this model is the ‘magic porthole’. So as to maintain the aesthetic purity of the hull, Wally decided to remove the lateral openings completely and instead install a video camera on either side of the boat.
The two cameras are connected to two screens, one on either side of the lounge, providing a sweeping view of the outside world without the need for physical portholes. These two yachts will line up alongside some of the models that best represent the Group’s brands:
• Ferretti Yachts 780
• Riva 90’ Argo and Riva 56’ Rivale
• Pershing 8X and Pershing 9X
• Custom Line Navetta 33
At the US Boat Show, Ferretti Group will be joined by both Italian and international luxury partners: Dolce&Gabbana designs the Group’s uniforms, while the finest wines from La Scolca and Pommery are ready for guests to raise in a celebratory toast. And then there are the exclusive propositions from Yacht Life Vodka for a delicious after-dinner drink to sip. The Group’s trusted automotive partner is Range Rover, which will offer a car service to customers and owners in the new Range Rover line, with air transport available thanks to the collaboration with Flexjet. Regular partner Seabob will be showcasing its magnificent limited editions, with custom livery created especially for the Group’s brands. The line-up of sponsors is completed by collaborations with One Sotheby’s, Frette and Poltrona Frau.
FERRETTI YACHTS 860 – U.S. PREMIERE
A cutting-edge flybridge with an eye-catching design, Ferretti Yachts 860 stands out for the strong focus on well-being, outstanding performance, optimisation of space, and opportunities to customise the settings, all with the elegance of Made in Italy style. The exterior design features numerous innovations that elevate the yacht above the standards in this market segment, including the introduction of floor-toceiling windows and glass fashion plates, which punctuate the sleek, powerful silhouette and characterise the contours. Stylistic evolution and the focus on architectural details means that Ferretti Yachts 860 is a distillation of the brand’s design vision.

WALLYPOWER58 – U.S. PREMIERE
The clean, essential styling is dominated by the hull’s double chine, by the exquisitely designed air intakes and by a bow with a smooth, clean line to cut through the water. The design of the superstructure embodies some of the most recognisable characteristics of Wally’s DNA, such as the wrap-around, pillarless windows, the wide, deep hatch, and generous social spaces that look out over the surrounding area, while remaining sheltered from the sun, wind and sea spray, as well as the interior layout designed for flexibility and up to a maximum of four guests. Turning to the naval architecture, the wallypower58 has the brand’s customary ultra deep-V hull, in line with Wally’s design philosophy geared to offer high-speed cruising performance and a comfortable ride in all weather and sea conditions.
