Venice is increasingly at the centre of the yachting world. All thanks to the growing success of its Boat Show, which from May 31st to June 4th this year will be a magnet for luxury yacht owners and enthusiasts. Ferretti Group celebrates its fourth year running at the show with a spectacular fleet of ten magnificent boats, including the stand-out wallywhy150, the model created by a team of Wally and Ferretti Group Engineering experts in collaboration with Studio Vallicelli Design, which penned the elegant and innovative interior design. This latest masterpiece in the wallywhy range features unprecedented exterior areas and a huge upper deck that offers the same sheltered space as a 40-metre yacht.
Alongside the wallywhy150, Ferretti Group will be showcasing a dazzling selection of boats representing four of its seven brands:
• Ferretti Yachts 720, Ferretti Yachts 580, Ferretti Yachts 500
• Riva 68’ Diable, Riva 56’ Rivale, Rivamare
• Pershing 9X and Pershing 7X
• Custom Line Navetta 30
“We have seen the Venice Boat Show come into being and flourish, not just as the leading trade fair in the Eastern Mediterranean, but as a yachting world event that our owners and friends look forward to the whole year. And it gives me great pleasure to see that the other Italian boat builders too have recognised the importance of this outstanding international event and the opportunities it creates,” said Alberto Galassi, Ferretti Group CEO. “I’d like to underscore once again this year the unmatched appeal of Venice’s Arsenale as the natural and artistic backdrop to our boats’ beauty and modernity. History has been made here and this is where you can admire the future of yachting: what another city in the world could offer all this? I’d like to thank and show my appreciation to Mayor Brugnaro and the municipal administration, who have given Venice back its rightful role as queen of the sea and navigation.”
