Over three extraordinary days in Venice this past weekend, Ferretti Yachts, one of the most prestigious brands of the international boating industry, celebrated their 50th Anniversary. Marking half a century of innovation, hundreds of Ferretti Yachts owners from all over the world were treated to never-before-granted access to the city with a private three day celebration of art, entertainment and Italian culture. The momentous occasion kicked off on Friday evening with a gala at Palazzo Ducale aside revered masterpieces by Tintoretto and Veronese, followed by a Ferretti Yachts fleet parade in front of the most famous square in the world, and a grand finale of the magnificent Frecce Tricolori (Italian Air Force) flyover that colored the skies and canals of Venice and Piazza San Marco.
Ferretti Group, the flagship of ‘Made in Italy’ and a global leader in the design, construction and sale of motoryachts and megayachts, continued celebrations of their unparalleled Ferretti Yachts brand on Saturday. Exclusively granted for the occasion by the Italian Navy, the Arsenal of Venice doors were opened to present 11 yachts 45 to 96 feet – including the magnificent world premiere of Ferretti Yachts 670 – moored inside the Darsena Nuovissima. The Arsenal later hosted a dinner by Cipriani with a live performance from renowned Italian singer Umberto Tozzi, Italian wines by La Scolca, champagne by Veuve Clicquot, and coffee from Lavazza. The occasion also marked continued collaboration with illustrious international luxury brands, with Emirates providing chauffeur service, Maserati providing exhibits and unique guest activities, Ermenegildo Zegna a VIP shopping experience, Taurus launching limited edition models of their historic bicycles, and more.
