The Ferretti Group added Indonesia dealer PT Dimitri Marin Sejahtera, giving the company a presence in more than 80 countries.

The new partnership gives the dealer exclusive rights to sell Ferretti and Pershing yachts in Indonesia through 2015.

The agreement is part of the Ferretti Group's new expansion strategy in the Asia-Pacific region and helps the company meet its objective of developing an increasingly balanced sales presence in the three macro regions: EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Africa), the Americas and Asia-Pacific.

“This new dealership agreement with such an important partner as PT Dimitri Marin Sejahtera — whose founders have operated in Indonesia for more than 10 years and can boast a long-standing experience in the luxury sector at a local level — marks another important step forward in our ambitious project of increasing and further strengthening our sale presence in the Asia-Pacific markets,” Ferretti Group CEO Ferruccio Rossi said in a statement.

The Asia-Pacific markets “hold a great potential and [are] where we intend to increase the export of our products, true icons of ‘Made in Italy’ excellence in the world,” he added.
