Ferretti plans to use the new area for refits, deliveries and service, as well as a hub for parts coming from the builder’s Italian shipyards.

"We are very proud to present the new investment plan in the U.S., a fast-growing market that gave us great satisfaction last year,” said Ferretti Group CEO Alberto Galassi in a statement.

In addition to the eponymously named vessels, Ferretti holdings include Pershing, CRN, Custom Line, Riva, Itama and Mochi Craft. The company acquired Wally last year.

"The decision to further increase our refit and post-sales services for our customers is the cornerstone of this investment and demonstrates Ferretti Group's dynamism and desire to consolidate its presence in the U.S.A., making Fort Lauderdale our armament hub in the American continent,” Galassi added.
