The Ferretti Group’s Service University was held for the first time in the Asia-Pacific region to help its training services evolve with a growing market.

The Service University was held in Hong Kong, where more than 30 professionals from the yachting sector representing more than five regions took part in a week of training and refresher courses.

“This edition of the Service University, held in Asia, is part of a wider project, launched several years ago and constantly evolving, aimed at always moving closer and closer to the markets where we are present, and to our customers,” CEO Alberto Galassi said in a statement. “I was delighted to see so many professionals from the yachting sector participate in the event — both historical ones and others that have only recently joined the large Ferretti Group family.”

During the training week, specific boat usage and maintenance issues were dealt with on the most recent models the group has built, particularly Ferretti Yachts 960, Ferretti Yachts 690, Ferretti Yachts 750, Pershing 62, Riva 86' Domino and Riva 122' Mythos.
