The new Ferretti Group Superyacht Yard has been officially opened.
The building, located in Ancona, Italy, extends across a total of 4,200sqm, of which 3,000sqm is office space.
This will be home to the technical office, project managers, project architects, the purchasing office, planning and control, logistics, production management, the construction project engineer and the boat foremen, as well as a reception area for customers.
“2023 is an important year for us, one packed with new developments and even more growth: the dual listing in Milan and Hong Kong, the Ravenna shipyard acquisition and today, here in Ancona, a new space that speaks to the future and to Italian luxury,” said Ferretti Group CEO Alberto Galassi.
“This new area, which completes the Ferretti Group Superyacht Yard, is another step forward for our research into technology and style.
“It is where our employees will find the ideal environment to fully express their outstanding skills, and where our owners can come to choose the most beautiful boats in the world. Because this is where the dreams of yachting enthusiasts come true.”
The Ancona shipyard, where Ferretti Group builds CRN super and megayachts, the Custom Line range, Riva yachts over 50m and Pershing 140 units, covers a total area of more than 80,000sqm.
The shipyard also has a 670-tonne travel-lift for launching steel and aluminium yachts up to 50m in length and nine industrial sheds in which up to 24 superyachts can be built in parallel.
There is also 250m of waterside frontage with berths for fitting out, finishing, tests and inspection of up to 15 superyachts simultaneously.
