Ferretti Group opens office in Spain


The Ferretti Group announced the opening of a new promotion and representative office in Palma de Mallorca, Spain.

Based in the capital of the largest Balearic island, the new office will have the goal of promoting the group’s brands in the Iberian peninsula and aims to support the local sales network, the Ferretti Group said.

It will also sustain the Ferretti Group's business growth among customers from countries such as the Russian Federation, Great Britain, Germany, Ukraine, Saudi Arabia and Scandinavia, for whom Spain, and particularly the Balearic islands, are one of the main destination markets.

The new office is part of the group’s overall push to grow its business internationally, with a presence in more than 80 countries.

A cocktail party on July 5 marked the grand opening of the office, with displayed boats that included the Ferretti Yachts 690 and Custom Line 100, Pershing 64’, Dolphin 64’ for the Mochi Craft brand, SportRiva 56’ of the Riva brand, and Itama Fiftyfive.
